Pura Vida Beach & Dive Resort

Dumaguete | Standard

Time slows almost to a standstill when you stay at the Pura Vida Beach & Dive Resort on Negros Island. Built by divers for divers, but just as appealing to beachcombers and sunseekers, this relaxed and rustic beachside resort is perfectly situated for exploring some of the most attractive and diverse marine landscapes in the Visayas, including the majestic Apo Island just offshore.

Air-conditioned guest rooms offer different levels of comfort, but always a breathtaking ocean view. Deluxe rooms and suites set between the pool and the beach have wide sun-terraces and attractive bamboo decor, while a number of charming bungalows are arranged in a U-shape a little further back from the beach. There’s also a handful of well-proportioned family rooms available for those wanting a little more space.

If you’re staying at Pura Vida then the chances are you’ll be spending most of your time in the water. The resort’s excellent PADI dive centre offers courses and boat trips into the protected marine sanctuaries around Dumaguete including Apo Island and Dauin, which are regarded as some of the most prestigious dive sites in the Philippines. Back on dry land, you can wind down with a herbal massage in the onsite spa, or a fresh coconut shake at the friendly beach bar. As the sun sets, contemplate dining under the stars at the lively beachfront restaurant.
