Summer at Emars Wavepool Resort

emars wavepool resort

It has been a family tradition to have a simple outing during summer season. I personally wanted to go to Samal for two simple reasons – white sand and blue waters! However, my dad is adamant to the idea of crossing the davao-samal waters, so I needed a back-up plan. After awhile of searching the net, I found Emars Wavepool Resort which is located at the back of SM City Ecoland.

My nephew, at 12 years is a huge fan of wavepool, so Emars Wavepool Resort is good choice. To those who didnt know, Emars Wavepool Resort and D’Leonor Inland Resort which is located in Communal is owned by the same family who also owns RDL Pharmaceuticals, D’Leonor Hotel in Bajada and the Japanese Tunnel in Maa.

I had the opportunity to visit the resort for the first time some years ago during our company’s send off dinner for our outgoing Assistant Finance Officer. I didn’t have the chance to go around the resort though back then.


So, how’s the resort? you might want to ask. I will rate the resort 4 out 5, that’s because my family had a wonderful time. The staff is very polite and accommodating. The customer service is very good. Despite the size of the resort, the management were able to keep it clean. The main attraction which are the 3 pools (the wavepool, the kiddie pool, and the adult pool) are what I’ve pictured them to be.

The only thing about the Emars Wavepool Resort is that it is quite expensive but with the kind of service that they are giving, I think that the price is just right. Among the resorts that I’ve visited within the metro, Emars is the best by far.

Here are our expenses during our summer outing at the resort.

Just a regular individual with a dream of being able to travel all the beautiful spots in the world. I am not a natural born Writer, so apologies if some of my grammars are bad. I will share my travel adventures here and hopefully, I can help you decide on your next travel getaway.
