Chema's by the Sea is one of the relatively newly-opened resorts in Samal island, Davao. It's a family-owned resort, named after their grandson. Originally a private resort for the family during holidays, Chema's is now open to the public. The resort houses only a few overnight cottages, and even a day tour is by reservation only, making the place quiet and peaceful. They have a very nice landscaping, very scenic, with extensive lush greens and charming little cabanas with hammocks and bamboo sala sets.
The beach was certainly nice! Fine, white sand; and you mostly have the beach to yourself, since the resort can only cater to such a number of people. Contradictory to Paradise Resort, which is open and free (even for overnight stay), Chema's obviously puts a price, albeit a small one, for serenity and tranquility.
Day tour to Chema's is only PhP100. Visitors can get a boat ride from Waterfront Hotel for only PhP150.
