About Pura Vida Cabilao

“Pura Vida” means “pure life” and that is exactly what you can experience here at our Pura Vida Cabilao. We are the sister resort of the very well known Pura Vida Beach & Dive Resort in Dauin, Dumaguete.

Cabilao is an isolated island just of the coast of Bohol, in the eastern part of Cebu. The Pura Vida Beach & Dive Resort Cabilao is situated near the village of Cambaquiz on the north-eastern point of the island, directly on the white palm-fringed beach. Our resort opened in January 2004 and got newly renovated in 2015. All 20 rooms are under German/Filipino management and consist of 3 different categories. We have one suite, deluxe and standard rooms, all of them are equipped with hot and cold shower and air-condition. A spacious terrace with modern furniture and a breathtaking view over the ocean is a standard in every room. It is your own choice how much comfort and luxury you like to enjoy during your vacation.

The size of the resort and the rooms are very spacious and from everywhere a beautiful view over the Bohol Sea is guaranteed. The view is especially stunning from the newly built deluxe rooms and the suite which are located right on the cliff on the same level than the restaurant and the bar.

The garden area between the dive center, the standard rooms and the stairs which taking you to the higher level, is well cultivated with palm trees, orchids and hibiscus flowers.

The Restaurant together with the reception and the bar are on top of the cliff, where always a nice breeze goes around. The native nipa roof gives a special flair to the entire structure and gives a special tropical touch to the atmosphere. A “Deco-Beer” after the dives can be ordered and the modern new cliff bar.

The resort offers more than just diving and accommodate guests in nice modern rooms with a beautiful scenery. The “Vida Spa” on Cabilao is one of the 3 Spa´s we have in our Vida family. During your stay you can enjoy different massage treatments and feel the relaxation completely during you holiday.

The Main attraction, nevertheless is the diving. Cabilao is a top dive destination in the Philippines. Its healthy reefs, sizes and colors of soft and hard coral, the amount of fish and the biodiversity at the dive sites of Cabilao are world class. As Cabilao is a little bit isolated from the main tourist points, you can often enjoy the dive sites by yourself and not get disturbed by other divers.

The dive center of Sea Explorers has very experienced staff in their team, which will take you out to the best dive spots around the island of Cabilao.
