For those who are looking for a new place to chill while in Davao City, Lopez Highlands might just be the one you’re looking for. Located in Baganihan, Marilog District, this rest house is known among netizens for its New Zealand vibes as the rest house is perched on a mountain top, facing a vast green field and an overlooking view of Davao.
With a cozy atmosphere, a quiet ambience and natural breeze, Lopez Highlands is a perfect place to chill and unwind. Be it with family, friends, or with your partner, relaxing here is possible as the rooms offered can reach up to 15 pax.
The house itself has a modern interior design. With glass windows, waking up with an overlooking view of Davao is indeed a morning any stressed-out corporate slave would definitely need. With wooden bed, chairs and other furniture, these set pieces complement well with the modern and progressive vibe of the whole house.
Although the place has no Wi-Fi, some networks are capable of having signals to some areas (but that should be fine, you are here for a break and that break includes a break from social media or from the Internet itself). The place has their own wide-screen TV, in case you really need technology to survive even in a remote area.
The jacuzzi and the swimming pools, both for adults and kids, is also a nice touch for a rest house that is located on mountaintop. The aesthetic design of the pools and the jacuzzi is also noted by the guests who have visited here as unique.
The amenities of the rest house include a kitchen all complete with utensils, rice cooker, refrigerator, electric kettle and water dispenser. Also, guests can barbeque in the grilling area provided that they bring their own charcoal. Since there is no restaurant or any food stores nearby, guests are encouraged to bring their own food to cook or prepare.
