Tomoe Matsuda

“Staying at your resort and diving with Paul and his team has been the most wonderful few days of my life. Diving was great and we were well looked after both on land and out in the blue sea. I have no doubt I will be returning to Malapascua and seeing the resort’s members again in the future. Regrettably it can’t be tomorrow.”

Frank Li

“I want to let you know that of all hotels and resorts I stayed at in the Philippines, Malapascua Exotic resort is the one that I’m really looking forward to visit again. It’s rare to find a place where everyone from the cleaning staff to the restaurant staff is working with such a commitment. Also worth mentioning is the dive staff which I could not be happier with. I think Angel and Jo are running a wonderful dive shop, and I had a blast taking the wreck diving course. For sure I will visit Malapascua again, and Exotic is definitely where I will stay.”

Patrick Jakiel

“On behalf of Li Lin, Peter and I – just wanted to thank Lani and Harold, and the entire Exotic team for a wonderful stay. Our dives were very good and we really felt like our short stay was much longer. Special thanks for arranging all of the more distant dive sites. We will definitely try and be back and will surely recommend Exotic to our fellow divers.”

“We have had an amazing 2 weeks here and thanks to all of you for being so friendly and lovely! A big thanks to Wil for being such a great Divemaster too! I will be back for sure..”

“We came expecting a lot and we obtained much more than expected!! Incredible service in a paradise island, nice weather, the best diving and very helpful staff. What else could we ask for?”

Giaco & Marta

“What a great place! I want to thank all the staff especially the ones at the fantastic restaurant Archie, Cheng, Melca, Ted, and Cris and all the others. You guys are amazing. My husband went diving all day and I got the best massages! Thanks for a fantastic Christmas.”
