Malapascua is the beautiful little island of the Philippines that hosts Tepanee: an intimate and welcoming resort where you will have the opportunity to spend an unforgettable holiday of relaxation and diving, enriched by a tasty food and wine proposal, suitable for a varied international clientele. Link together the idea of your holiday with a truly unique welcome, staying in cottages overlooking the ocean.Rooms and cottages, built in perfect harmony between functionality and respect for the environment, overlooking the Pacific Ocean or on lush gardens adorned with frangipani, the fragrant flower that gave our name to this corner of paradise. It's holiday time: we wait for you! Malapascua is the beautiful small island of the Philippines hosting Tepanee: an intimate and friendly resort that will give you an unforgettable holiday. Tepanee stands on a small hill that rises up from Logon beach and our territory goes down to our own private sandy beach, an area isolated from the rest of the island from where it’s possible to admire breathtaking sunsets in an area secluded from the rest of the island and where we placed beach umbrellas, sunbeds, a gazebo for massages and our lovely Chiringuito beach bar. In addition, in the hill adjacent to the reception is our panoramic Amihan restaurant. The name TEPANEE comes from the name of the Polynesian frangipani plant, a tropical tree that graces our gardens with fragrant flowers of various colors. Historically, the concept for our resort followed a philosophy of low environment impact. Most of the building materials are natural and local: wood, bamboo and stones used for the main structures, roofs made of a typical straw named kogon. The buildings are almost invisible from the ocean, even if many are built right on the seaside. Opened on December 8, 2008, Tepanee in the beginning was consisted of 6 independent double cottages and one building of two storeyes with 4 triple rooms. We have grown, and can now offer you: Deluxe cottages: independent buildings with a superb ocean view, the best in Malapascua Island, facing the sundown. They feature: aircon, ceiling fan, en-suite bathroom, hot shower, minibar, safety box, balcony with sofa, queen size double bed with option for one or two extra single beds, bamboo and wooden furniture, wooden floor, entrance door and windows with mosquito screen and blackout curtains, free wifi, daily cleaning service. These cottages can accommodate up to four people. Superior cottages: independent buildings with aircon, ceiling fan, en-suite bathroom, hot shower, minibar, safety box, balcony with sofa, queen size double bed with option for one extra single bed, bamboo and wooden furniture, wood floor, windows with mosquito screen and blackout curtains, free wifi, daily cleaning service. Some cottages can accommodate an extra single bed for a fourth person. Some cottages have the ocean view, some have a partial ocean view, some have the garden view. Standard rooms: together in two different buildings of two storeys. All the rooms have a double queen sized bed and a single bed, a have private entrance, aircon, ceiling fan, en-suite bathroom, hot shower, minibar, safety box, balcony with sofa, bamboo and wooden furniture, wooden floor, windows with mosquito screen and blackout curtains, free wifi, daily cleaning service. Some rooms can accommodate an extra single bed for a fourth person. The Standard rooms have partial ocean view or garden view. Evoking an island feel, the resort boast of cozy and excellently constructed rooms that also utilizes natural materials such as bamboo among others. The rooms are decorated with colourful walls and unique bamboo beds, offering both air-conditioning and a ceiling fan with a year round availability of fresh ocean breeze that can be enjoyed from our spacious balconies. It is also furnished with a mini bar, a safe for your valuables and wifi connectivity throughout the property. One thing you won't find in our rooms though, is the television as we feel that this distract guests from all the natural beauty this island has to offer. We provide for the wifi in all the resort. Please, note that we are in a remote island and the service sometime may be slow or discontinuous. Since December 2012, you can eat and drink right next to our private beach, at the Chiringuito beach bar, where we serve breakfast and lunch, snacks, drinks and natural fruit juices, cocktails, with soft music in the background. In May 2013, we opened our new Amihan restaurant, in a panoramic position on the hill at the new entrance of Tepanee. We are serving the amazing Italian cuisine that Amihan had already become renowned for: pizza, vegetables, fish and grilled meats, pasta and pastries, tropical fruit, wine and much more. Tepanee Beach Resort is located in a non-flat area: from the reception to the rooms and the beach on the back there are stairs to go up and down. The steps are wide and low, but they do exist: please be aware of this when choosing our hotel for your stay. We do not provide hair-dryers and television. We provide beach towels upon request and with payment of the laundry service. We accept credit cards payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express and JCB (bank transaction charges apply). We also accept cash payments in Pesos, Euros and US Dollars. Check-in is possible from 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM. Check-out must be completed by 12:00 noon. Reception is open from 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM. During your stay you will have direct assistance with everything concerning scuba dives and diving courses, which can be easily booked through us. Please contact our reception for all the informations and to book the dives. Tepanee organizes transfers from and to Cebu City/Airport/Pier at any time by private van and boat: our boats arrive and depart from our private beach, located inside the Tepanee Beach Resort area. There are 144 kms of paved road from Cebu City to Maya, the port where to take the boat for Malapascua; then there are 8 kms by sea from Maya to Tepanee Beach Resort. The road ride takes about 3 hours, while the boat ride only 30 minutes. About pick up transfers, please note that the last boat departure allowed by the Government from Maya to Malapascua is 6:00PM, so consider to overnight in Cebu City if the flight is landing after 2:00PM. About back transfers, the earliest departure from Malapascua is 6:00AM and we have to schedule the departure from Malapascua at least 7 hours in advance if the for an international flight and 6 hours in advance for a domestic flight. Depending on the schedule of the flight, please consider to overnight in Cebu City the night before the flight: for example, if the flight is an international departure at 12:45, it's necessary to leave Malapascua at 5:00AM but this is not allowed by the Government, so it will be needed to leave Malapascua the day before (or choose a later flight, of course). Just contact our reception, please, for all the informations and to book the transfer. Our staff are delighted to respond to your requests, and we are certain that you will have all you need for relaxing and memorable holiday.

We ended up stranded in Malapascua Island during global Lockdown. Decided to move to Tepanee, where we stayed for a little over two months. Our stay was absolutely incredible. staff was great, the views were beautiful, cleanliness was impecable and the owner Andrea, and manager Niel treated us like family. The gym was absolute bliss during those quarantine months and the private beach was just... wow. The rooms were perfect, and even during the pandemic the rooms were cleaned every day and all the safety measures were applied. I can only thank the whole Tepanee family, and specially Andrea, for all they've done for us, and hope we can one day come back to the place that was once our home.

My wife , myself and our fur baby stayed at this resort earlier this year and we were very impressed , the rooms are beautifully located overlooking the sea , rooms were in good working order and perfectly clean , the beach area is wonderful and the hotel grounds are impeccable , the owner is pet friendly so a. Friend in our eyes to us also :). Lunch and dinner we were served good food , breakfast options for vegans could be improved and they only negative point is the coffee served to us was not good so we couldn’t drink it , rooms prices were also not inflated and kept sensible , we will defiantly be back .

Hats off to the best resort in Malapascua!!! It was our second stay in this resort and they have maintained everything from the quality of service, food and accomodation, top notch! We did not have to go out from the resort because we had everything we needed, a private beach where you can just chill, swim or snorkel, their Amihan Restaurant where we had our dinner all the time, the Chiringuito Bar by the beach.. You got everything there. I appreciate very much the comfort of the bed, the resorts location and the hospitality of the staff and the owners. Look for nothing else in Malapascua than Tepanee beach resort 😉

Stayed at Tepanee for 2 nights but wish we could have stayed longer than that. It was an amazing experience, from the fantastic facilities, wounderful location and private beach to the kind, efficient and hospitable staff -including owners Silvia and Andrea who were always present and went over and above to ensure their guests had the best stay possible. Would also really recommend the restaurant, delicious high quality food with spectacular view. We travelled around Philippines for three weeks and this was by far the best place we stayed at. Thank you for the wonderful memories. Rachael and Giuseppe

We are a family group of 10 traveling this beautiful and paradise resort in the beautiful island of Malaspascua. I booked 4 DELUXE CABIN for 2 nights and it was a fantastic stay. I booked this through agoda . Com and the staffs surprised us thier amazing true meaning of hospitality. All our cabin beds were set-up with lots of wild petals in the island. It was impressive. The garden too beautifully done and the landscape was amazing. We went down the beach and we had so much fun. The italian restaurant was awesome. Amazing view from the top of the hill. Foods were top notch though it was a bit overpriced but it has a million worth of views. Definitely coming back here.
