KADAYAWAN WEEKEND 'staycation'
DABAWENYOS are bracing for a long weekend for this year's 32nd Kadayawan Festival and Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao has the best deals on accommodation and dining that make a staycation package with good value for money.
With the onset of a very busy month for Davao, taking a few days off without missing out on the attractions and happenings in the city is the best way to celebrate the long weekend.
The premier hotel offers its Deluxe Premium rooms for as low as P3,400 nett inclusive of an Interlocal Breakfast Buffet at Cafe Uno for two. This room particularly extends to a veranda with a view of the property’s expansive gardens and pool facility that's a stone's throw away from the beach line.
What's more, staying guests will get a complimentary Waterfront shirt as a souvenir.
Pizzaiolo, the hotel’s ala carte restaurant, features specialty recipes on two of the city’s signature products: Marang and Durian. Marang and Durian fruits have become commonly associated with Davao because of its abundance in the city and scarcity in other parts of the country. For the whole month of August, the hotel's menu of food and beverage items promotes a special Durian Pie and Marang Mousse as well as choices of Lambanog
Mojito, Karambola and Kagatan beverages to compliment them. For Café Uno, their quarterround lunch buffet promotions will highlight local cuisine items on the side.
Rounding up this stay package is an authentic indigenous performance from a family of Lumads of the Matigsalug tribe. After all, it isn’t Kadayawan without a hint of culture and heritage. The Matigaslugs or ‘People of the Salug River’ is one of eleven tribes for which the Kadayawan festival is celebrated. Your weekend stay will be made livelier with cultural entertain- ment this Kadayawan weekend - Friday, Saturday and Sunday - from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Kadayawan is an annual festival held in Davao City as a thanksgiving for the bounties of harvest, the beauty of life and harmonious living of people. Every third week of August, the festival showcases an abundant display of fruits and a series of events and activities throughout the whole city. (NCB)
