Why stay with us


A different concept on Malapascua Island.

Buena Vida opened in December 2014 with a brand new concept on the island where a relaxed holiday will come together with the beautiful ambience of a Spa. The modern and well-designed rooms plus the open and comfortable wooden living terrace gives your island stay that special something, no matter if you travel alone, with your partner on a romantic getaway or enjoying a family holiday with your children.


Vida Spa

Buena Vida is the most spacious and professional run Spa on Malapascua Island. All our masseuses are well trained and properly certified. The calm and beautiful garden setting is the best place on the island to find peace for your body and soul.


Tropical Garden

Our resort is located in the biggest and most colorful tropical garden on the entire island of Malapascua. The high diversity of flowers and plants create a stunning surrounding scenery. A perfect hideaway to completely forget about your troubles and immerse yourself in the relaxed pace of tropical life.
