Malapascua Resorts, Hotels and Accommodation

Tepanee Resort Malapascua Island

In Cebu, Philippines, Thresher Shark Divers is located on Malapascua’s main beach. We can book accommodation at most of the resorts on the island.

Some of the ones we use regularly are Tepanee Resort, Cocobana Resort, Hippocampus Resort and Blue Coral Resort.

Contact us to find out more about current prices and to make a reservation. If you want an AC or beach room, please book early as rooms are limited! This is especially so for major holidays. 

Prices start at around US$ 30 for a basic fan room and $50 for air con. Hot water showers are available in most AC rooms and some fan rooms. Many people find hot water is not necessary as “cold” water is usually just tepid and quite refreshing. Most resorts have wi-fi and we offer free wi-fi at the dive shop. We are in a remote location, but despite that it is mostly reliable.

Prices quoted are subject to change due to increases and currency fluctuations. Please contact us for the latest rates. All prices are for double rooms and include breakfast for two.

Tepanee Resort

Tepanee Resort is built in a private area, on a small cliff overlooking the sea. 

The resort is well run, under Italian management and has become the most popular choice among our customers. Rooms come with air-con, hot water showers, tea and coffee making facilities, minibar and safe. 

The Deluxe rooms have incredible seaviews and one of its main attractions is this beautiful private beach. We think this is the best value resort for your money on Malapascua Island.

It is also super eco-friendly: it is the only resort on the island with it’s own osmosis machines, and so all water is recycled and they can even convert sea water. This means truly fresh water showers, and zero impact on the fragile water table that supplies the rest of Malapascua. Find out more. 

Blue Coral Resort

Blue Coral Resort is conveniently located only 100m from the dive shop.

Warning about Thresher Cove Resort

This resort is NOT affiliated with Thresher Shark Divers. It is located in an isolated area on the other side of the island. It is problematic to get to TSD for the early morning shark dive so please consider a closer resort!
