|Chemas By the Sea|
Chemas By the Sea is one of the top coastline beach resorts among the growing number of resorts that line the western coast of Samal Island facing Davao City. It is a family-owned resort named after their grandson, Chemas.
The Resort sits on a beautifully landscaped garden of lush greenery of flora and fauna and towering trees amid a wide expanse of talcum-fine white sand along the pristine blue waters of Davao Gulf with a breathtaking view of Davao City and the magnificent Mount Apo in the backdrop. There are several decorative hardwood materials and dead sea corals that are beautifully placed in its well-manicured garden that add luster to an already charming ambiance of natural comfort and tranquility of nature that is uniquely Chemas.
