After a 2 hr:40 min flight, 3 hour van, and 30-40 min boat ride, You’re there. I did a 4 week stay at Exotic Island resort earlier this year, about half IDC course and half fun diving. Exotic...

I tagged along with a friend on a last minute dive weekend and Exotic was definitely the nicest place on the island. Most of the others along the (very nice) white beach were either quite damaged by Typhoon Yolanda or just really run-down. The beach infront of Exotic is the nicest and widest as well. Be ready for a lot...

This might be the most beautiful beach in the Philippines, and the resort's location on the eastern edge is indisputably wonderful. The attached dive shop is great and very professional, and for those looking for Thresher sharks it's super convenient to stay at the hotel, since you just change your pajamas for a wet suit at dawn for the early...

My brother was staying at this resort to train diving and become divemaster. Me and my mother went to visit him, and we had the best time. The island is beautiful, and great to relax, nice restaurant on the beach at exotic resort, very friendly staff, and their dive courses are so much fun!

We loved this place. All the staff made us feel so welcome. The resort is located on a beautiful white sandy beach with palm trees. We had an upstairs beach front room. A lot of thought has gone into this place. The rooms had dimmer switches on the lights to help with getting up at 4.00am for the thresher shark...

My friend(Shing) and I(Toby) stayed at Malapascua Exotic resort from 12/03/2014 to 16/3/2014(Room 17). We chose “Exotic” because it “was” famous for good dive shop, good diving planning and nice DMs. We paid higher room charges and expensive diving package to Exotic when compared with other resorts in Malapascua. Therefore, we expected a very professional diving services provided by Exotic!!!!...
