The best Halal and Muslim friendly hotel in Davao

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 25 July 2023
I stayed in Blue Lotus Hotel in July 2023 for one night, although I frequently visited their Sky View Restaurant. I had a great experience. The room was quite spacious, approximately 30 sq metres. The elevator is one of a kind where you do not need to touch it but simply use your RFID-enabled hotel keycard. I believe this was for sanitizing measures taken by the hotel management since the pandemic era.

The room has qiblah direction on the ceiling, and they provide Muslim travellers with prayer mats as well as Holy Quran. Very thoughtful touch since none of the hotels in Davao City provide this in their room.

The housekeeping staff were also attentive and it took less than 10 minutes for them to deliver the iron & board.

The hotel has a Malaysian Chef, Chef Shah who cooks authentic Malaysian dishes like sate, murtabak, chicken curry, daging masak hitam and nasi beriani.


Date of stay: July 2023
Room Tip: Get room overlooking Samal Island
Trip type: Travelled on business

Secure, friendly hotel with solid restaurant and workout facilities. Rooms were clean, large, and comfortable.

The SkyView manager was particularly helpful to our group on our last night when we needed some flexibility in their policies to have the evening we very much needed. We kept staff beyond the end of their paid shift, I am sure.

I hope to visit Davao again, and I will certainly stay at the Blue Lotus.

Room tip: Workout space and pool are in a separate building, so you need to plan well before making the short walk - shoes, etc.

We had an issue regarding the hotel’s implementation of safety and security measures (the only reason for the 4-star rating). Hotel staff was very accommodating except for the lady (I didn’t get her name) who was assigned in the buffet breakfast area. She waits by the entrance (counter) and has the list of the hotel guests, she was a bit rude. Special shout-out to Miss George (I hope I got her name right), we were able to get a room upgrade, thank you! Very roomy and comfortable.

I was happy staying here after a long timely abstinence because of Covid-19. Slowly but surely in this hotel, times are getting back to normal. A big congratulations to the whole staff during the best it could too.

Stayed for few days here. Location is good. Security is friendly as well as the bellman.

Room is neat and clean, but there is awful smell of cigarette in the hallway and inside the room.

My husband found a small cockroach in the side table.

2 water is complimentary. The rest you have to pay. Tea is not available in this hotel. And we’re having a hard time since phone is not working, so we still have to go down or call them using our personal number to request something.

The room provided is not always consistent but with the same description which is a disappointment. The food is not that good and needs improvement given that it's really expensive, we would expect atleast a 9/10 star quality meal.

Pros: clean and modern

Overall the stay is okay room service gets delayed though
