Pearl Farm Beach Resort - About Us


Nestled on the serene western coast of the Island Garden City of Samal, Pearl Farm Beach Resort had once homed Daniel R. Aguinaldo’s Pearl Farm. It was originally an actual breeding ground for rare white-lipped oysters that were transported from the depths of the Sulu Sea. Fervidly nurtured, the oysters produced cultured pearls of white, gold and pink.

In 1992, it was converted into a family-owned resort upon the discovery of its exquisite and tropical beauty. On the same year, the resplendent blue waters cradling Pearl Farm Beach Resort has been declared a marine sanctuary to protect it from the ravages of dynamite fishing. Remarkable coral formations and marine life in the area has since then been preserved.

Instilled in Pearl Farm Beach Resort’s mission is the upliftment and promotion of the culture, arts, and skills of Mindanaoan native tribes. To be able to be one with its cultural roots demonstrated in its architecture, food, products — and even people — the resort finds its lifeblood.


National artist Francisco “Bobby” Mañosa knew his first love while growing up in pre-war Manila. His love for sticks and stones, and the beauty of everyday life, had paved the way to the making of an internationally acclaimed Filipino architect. He graduated from the College of Architecture of the University of Sto. Tomas, where he found inspiration in the bahay-kubo rather than modern, international styles.

Mañosa’s style of regionalism, called “neovernacular”, believes in the awareness, acceptance, and maximization of indigenous materials — how these have been used in the past and today, and the technologies that can be applied to these raw materials in order to cater daily needs. Together with his brother, they founded the Francisco Mañosa & Partners.

Mañosa’s famous architectural works include the Coconut Palace at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, the Shrine of Our Lady of Peace at EDSA, and Ateneo’s Education Building and Professional School.

Pearl Farm Beach Resort was also built by Mañosa through the inspirations of the local houses of Mindanaoan tribes. In 1996, his work for Pearl Farm Beach Resort has hailed it as the “Most Beautiful Resort on Earth” by the Architectural Digest. Up to date, the resort continues to be a testament of imagination and innovation under Mañosa’s firm.
