Ocean Vida Resort: “Hakuna Matata” vibes in Malapascua


“It means no worries, for the rest of your days.”

Long stretches of white-sand beach, scuba diving to spot some thresher sharks, and the overall nature view of the island — it’s definitely a good island life experience at Ocean Vida Resort in Malapascua.

The island vibe exudes in the native style accommodation without removing that pop of modern living.

Ocean Vida Resort is located on Bounty Beach, giving you quick access to the shore and a view that’s ideal for that beachfront fantasy as you enjoy a delightful meal.


Beach Bar & Restaurant

What’s not relaxing in sipping wine while looking at the enchanting sunset? You can sit at the bar, or choose a good spot near the sea on one of the bean bags or love chairs.

The Beach Bar serves fruit refreshers, cocktails, soft drinks, cold beers and wines.

Also indulge yourself in a wide selection of Asian and European dishes. You can enjoy your meal either on a set table overlooking the beautiful Bounty Beach or sit right next to the sea under the palm trees.
