What does it look like living in your own piece of seaside paradise? How does it feel like being face-to-face with nature while enjoying the comforts a luxury development provides?

The Kembali Sales Lounge, which was launched recently, offers an exclusive sneak peek into the life of owning a home on a paradise island. The interactive gallery showcases Filinvest Premiere’s Kembali property, a Balinese-inspired residential-leisure development on Samal Island in Davao.

Guests to the showcase platform can see the progress inside Kembali, whose Phase 2 development commenced in March. The upscale property’s mid-rise condominium development is also set to open its doors to privileged homeowners as marked by the groundbreaking of its first building and amenity area.

A residential masterpiece, Kembali is more than just a taste of Bali. It’s that and then some.

A private playground. Kembali provides its residents with a private escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Taking inspiration from the Bahasa Indonesia word that means “welcome” or “to go back to,” Kembali offers a taste of exclusive island living that is truly worth returning to. A 20-minute boat ride from the Davao Boat and Leisure Club and a 40-minute boat transfer from the mainland will bring you to Kembali’s 1.8-km of beach frontage, a white sand coastline facing the Talikud Strait.

A beachfront home and a grand escape in one. Staycation at its finest is made possible by Kembali’s generous lot cuts and highly secured community features. Homeowners can design their second home especially for their private getaways with family and friends and experience the ease and comfort of living within a master-planned community.

Kissed-by-nature encounters. Kembali’s unspoiled terrain makes it the most conducive habitat for green sea turtles. The development was designed around the preservation of its natural diversity. The island’s mangroves, on the other hand, serve as nesting grounds for birds, as well as the breeding ground for rich marine life. Kembali features a bird hill and fish feeding activities for enjoyable, nature-intimate encounters.

Kembali is a joint venture project of Filinvest Land, Inc., under its upscale Filinvest Premiere brand, and Fernandez-Hermanos, Inc. Filinvest Premiere offers masterfully crafted luxury residential spaces and leisure masterpieces.
