About Us


Ocean Vida Beach and Dive Resort is on the beautiful island of Malapascua, located in the northern part of Cebu. More specifically, we are situated directly on Bounty Beach, just a few steps from the shore.

OCEAN VIDA is not only our resort name, it also represents the impression we hope to impart on you as our guest. VIDA, meaning life, represents our mission; we want to make you feel comfortable, relaxed, and also full of life during your stay with us. The beachfront ambience combined with the delicious, fresh food and the friendliness of our staff, make many people come back to Malapascua time and time again.

Ocean Vida Beach and Dive Resort offers 20 spacious rooms, split into 2 categories:

Seaview Rooms and Garden Rooms. More details for each room category can be found in our “Accommodation” section on the webpage.

Bounty Beach, with its nice white sand beaches and the crystal clear, blue ocean, is right were Ocean Vida sits, inviting all those who stay with us for swimming or diving with our partner, Sea Explorers. Food and Drinks are offered from morning until evening. Five options are available for enjoying our food and drink menu. Our restaurant on the 2nd floor, the beach bar, famous chill-out area with cozy bean bags, private dining at your room with sea or garden view, and last, but not least, having a romantic dinner on the beach. Sunbeds located under palm trees are calling your name for reading a book, listening to music, or can be enjoyed for watching the ocean waves crash in and out on the beach. Wide varieties of spa treatments and yoga classes are provided by our sister resort, Buena Vida, in order to escape to a completely different world on Malapascua.

Ocean Vida Beach & Dive Resort is owned by the lovely Fabienne. She moved to Malapascua in 2005, where she started as one of the dive shop managers for Sea Explorers. Ocean Vida Beach & Dive Resort was opened in December 2010.

Falling in love with the island and the people who called it home, Fabienne opened a second resort on the island called Buena Vida Resort and Spa in March 2015. It’s located only a few steps away from Ocean Vida. Buena Vida is unique on Malapascua because it offers a wide range of spa packages: Massage techniques from all over the world, body and face treatments, manicures and pedicures, to name a few. Yoga classes are also available.

To get more information about Buena Vida, please follow our link at the webpage – www.buenavida-malapascua.com. Please, don’t hesitate to ask for more details at our reception, and appointments can be placed there as well.

The goal of the management is to keep the quality of service as high as possible, to make for a remarkable and unforgettable holiday.

We hope we can welcome you here soon,
