Malapascua island diving


Tepanee Resort – Malapascua

Info on Tepanee Resort - Malapascua

Tepanee is a tranquil Italian owned and run resort. It is located only a few minutes walk from the dive shop, yet still isolated enough to really let you know you are on an exotic desert island. It is, we think, the best resort on the island, and it is very popular, so book early, especially for major holidays.

Each rooms comes with AC and one large bed. A single bed can be added on request. Also a minibar, safe for valuables and a balcony, some with with sea views. The deluxe rooms in particular have amazing sea views. 

Please be aware that the resort is located on a rocky outcrop, so there are some steps to climb. 

Zero impact water

Tepanee is the only resort on the island with osmosis machines and so the only resort with true fresh waster for showering. Everywhere else you will find it is slightly salty and you never quite feel clean.  More importantly, this also ensures all water used has zero impact on the fragile water table of Malapascua, where the rest of the island gets its water, and no water is wasted. In recent times with increased tourism on the island and less rain, this can become a problem at certain times of the year, and the water gets even more salty. Tepanee produces drinking quality water from rainwater and seawater, and they recycle wastewater for use in the gardens. So nothing is wasted, and no pollution escapes into the land or the sea.
