Gumamela Cave Rock Farm Resort is a two-hectare mountain farm resort situated in a secluded, peaceful and tranquil farm in Purok 3, Barangay Matina Biao, Tugbok District, 21 kilometers away from Davao City. The land where the resort is situated is part of the Tolosa Family Estate which was occupied by the Japanese Imperial Army during WWII.

Spa-swimming pool

The Spa-swimming pool consists of 57,000 gallons of deep-well mineral rich water naturally heated by the pool's sandstone bed and walls. The sandstone generates a natural thermal conductivity that heats to the pool water which has been proven beneficial to health. The nature's three most powerful relieving agents: heat, water and air, invigorates and gently massages the body while easing away body aches and pains.
