Here's why. I reposted this from their site:
WHEN jetsetter Ms Jeanne April Celerio-Kroelle (a relative of the late and famous Levi Celerio) decided to retire in the Island Garden City of Samal, she and her husband built a resort within 18 months to cater to foreign tourists who are looking for the peaceful island vacation but with complete amenities to their tastes.
Thus, Hof Gorei Resort was born.
Hof Gorei got its unique foreign sounding name from a picturesque, small dairy farm in the Alps of Salzburg, Austria.
Originally designed for the family's hideaway only, the cottages were made for family guests on short holiday in Davao . However, it slowly transformed into a private beach resort for travelers and tourists.
Its accessibility is approximately 45 minutes by boat from the mainland Davao 's Sta. Ana pier to Kaputian in Igacos right after Pearl Farm Beach Resort. The resort's location has a mountainous terrain which affords guests an elevated view of the coastal area, the white sand beach, the Davao Gulf and the majestic Mount Apo.
