Hill 88 Hideaway: Great Bonding Spot in Buda

We went on a pre-Valentine couples bonding trip a couple of weeks ago. Our destination was undoubtedly one of the most relaxing places within driving distance of Davao City — Hill 88 Hideaway in Buda.

Our trip started with a breakfast meetup at McDonalds Matina with our couple-friends: Joseph and Jill, Paul and Ervs, Lloyd and June, Aying and Jinkee, Alvin and Che, and Jason and Monica. Then, we left for a fun 2-hour road trip to Buda!

The place is perfect for couples looking for a quick romantic trip just outside Davao. It has a huge living room with a breathtaking view of the hills outside. When we arrived, it was cold, quiet and so relaxing.

The place is also great for group bonding. We played board games in the living room, belted out hit classics through the night with their video karaoke, and exchanged stories by the fireplace until midnight.

Hill 88 has 3 rooms – one with 4 double-deck beds, and two with queen-size beds. With several extra single-size mattresses, all 7 women in our group decided to sleep in just one room. There are also a number of couches where you can take a nap.

It also has a fireplace, a dining area, 3 toilet and bath rooms (with hot and cold shower) and 2 wash basins, a conference room, and a spacious parking area.

While they have a swimming pool, we did not have the courage to take a dip in such cold weather. Cowards. Hahaha!

Their staff took care of our food for us. They charge P1,000 per person and P500 per child (6 years old and below) for 3 meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and 2 snacks. You may bring food, but you have to pay for corkage.

  1. Hi Guys!

    I relatively new in Davao (relocated from Manila) and I’ve been reading this blog as a guide about the city.
    I read almost everything – from food, to roadtrips, to entertainments, even check Cinema schedules!
    I also learned that there is VCF in Davao.

    I checked the schedule of and decided to attend the 8AM service yesterday.

    On the latter part, there was an AVP of couples promoting to join V Groups and was surprised because the place and faces looked familiar (Hill88 Hideaway post).

    Thank you for the informative entries and hope to see you in church!

    • Hi Rosa! What a small world. We’re so happy to help your stay here in Davao a tad more convenient. 🙂

      Leah and I were included in the video (the couple wearing the “dabawenyo” shirt). We’re so blessed to have discovered Hill 88 Hideaway for our couples mini-vacation. We hope to meet you soon!

  2. Sir, how was their food?

    • Hi Ann. The food reminded us of home-cooked Pinoy dishes that comfort the heart amidst the cold air. You can choose from their menu selections when you decide to stay in Hill 88. Thanks for dropping by!

  3. Hi. I would just like to ask if you paid the first 50% by depositing the amount thru an account number?

  4. We stayed there, too, over the Holy Week break. Very nice 🙂

  5. do they rent out rooms or would you have to book the whole house/complex to stay the night?

  6. May day tour po kayo ?

  7. Good day… the contact numbers seems to be outdated. Do you have other means to contact the resort?

  8. A bit (??!! lol) late, but thanks, DavaoBase! Just an update, all inquiries are now directed at our verified Facebook Page, Hill 88 Hideaway. Just send us a private message or directly book online. Links are provided. Thanks, again, DB! 🙂
