We all long for a getaway that won’t remind us of the busy city life. Imagine lush greenery, cool fresh air and a front row seat – by the mountains. Yup, everything you’ve imagined for a perfect country living experience can now turn into a reality. I was in for a treat when I got to experience a different kind of resort – Saddleback Haven Mountain Resort in Davao. Read more to see why I love it!

Tyson the boxer | Only 45 minutes away from Davao City proper

If ever you find yourself in Davao, make sure to check out Saddleback Haven but hold on – it’s not your typical walk-in resort. Enjoy the serene environment and exclusivity when you book a trip to Saddleback. You’d think it would take at least a 2 hour drive from the city to a mountain scenery but guess how long it takes to get to Saddleback from the city? Only 45 minutes! And that’s with the tight speed limit in Davao

 Saddleback Haven in Baracatan, Toril, Davao City

I was so excited as we entered the gates of Saddeback. If you’re wondering, it actually isn’t hard to get here unlike other resorts. The route treads on a fully cemented road in Baracatan, Davao.

Fresh air and lush greenery

One of the highlights of Saddleback is the mountain view and beautiful trees surrounding the whole property. The wide and spacious area makes it perfect for special occasions such as weddings and pre-nup shoots, parties, trainings and team-buildings.

Saddleback Haven | Horseback riding

I am initially traumatized from riding horses but this gorgeous horse made me change my mind. In Saddleback, guests can enjoy different activities such as horseback riding. I enjoyed the trail and had a guide with me all throughout.

Grilled tuna panga (my favorite!)

A must-try dish in Davao – grilled tuna panga!!! A low calorie dish (cos it’s GRILLED and it’s fish!) that’s super juicy and best served with toyo and sili.
