The Swimming area is adequately manned by lifeguards all day which makes swimming more enjoyable and worry-free even for young kids. A few strokes farther, leads you to an area perfect for snorkeling or even diving. Surely, a wet experience beyond compare to a man- made swimming pool.
Only seven (7) minutes away and traffic-free from Davao City, Paradise Island is very near and visitors are ferried by a fleet of colourful and sea worthy boats efficiently operated by the management of the resort from 5:00 AM up to 5:00 PM. After 5:00 PM, those who wish to go to Samal Island may ride the Ferry Boat (see Travel Map for directions) which serves the public 24/7.
WATERFRONT INSULAR HOTEL
Guests staying at Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao may arrange a boat trip to Paradise Island and back at the reception. This is the shortest route from Davao City which only takes five (5) minutes.
Car owners need not worry where to park their cars when going to the resort. Our parking area is wide, fenced and canopied that can accommodate a sizeable number of vehicles and is secured 24/7. If you wish not to part with your cars and plan to bring them to the island, we also have an equally secured place to park your cars inside the resort.
We have made taking care of the Marine Life on our shores a serious business and a commitment. The Management is aggressive and is doing everything to stop all forms of fishing within the resort’s perimeter.
With this strong commitment in mind, we go out of our ways to find solutions in keeping up with a modern approach in taking care of our environment and set the pace among the industry players in Samal Island.

Thousands of satisfied guests already served since it began its operations in the 80’s, the Paradise Island Society have established its own brand
of hospitality called “The PAP”.
P– stands for Pahiyom the local dialect,
every resort staff is enjoined to wear a
smile on their face when inside the resort
and encouraged to do the same outside.
A– stands for Abi – abi in the local dialect,
each guest must be provided with
whatever is needed for their well-being
during their stay.
P– stands for Pasalamat in the local dialect,
each employee must be thankful for every
given opportunity in serving our guests and
invites them to come again.
All these traits are inherent in every member of the Paradise Island Society and we intend to keep it that way forever.
