Evolution offers 'progressive diving' and its award-winning dive centre, modern rooms, white sand beach, and one of the best restaurants on the island, provides everything for the discerning diver.
Evolution is owned and run by 2 passionate divers, who fell in love with the Philippines and its diving, and set out to share their passion with others. Their shared philosophies of quality facilities, services and interesting and safe training are at the heart of the Evolution ethos. Their goal is to empower friends and students alike to share their passion for exploring the underwater world, with a well organised infrastructure of equipment, boats and staff to ensure everything runs smoothly. Being firm believers in sucking out the best life has to offer Evolution is designed to create a meeting place for divers and non-divers out of the water, a social melting pot that makes guests want to return again and again. You’ll see staff and owners in the bar and restaurant every night… and more than likely, be chatting to them over a cold drink at some point during your trip.
The best room in the resort with all the extras – quality furniture, environmentally-friendly AC, TV, minibar, room safe, and ensuite bathroom - affords a fantastic ocean view over the top of the palm trees to the Visayan Sea.
Only recently built to exacting western standards, these rooms have hand crafted mahogany beds, high end mattresses, ensuite bathroom, environmentally-friendly AC, TV with personal video library, minibar, room safe and a personal terrace – all about 75m from the water’s edge.
Similar to deluxe rooms, they are built to high standards and include quality furniture but with a little less space they are suited for the budget minded traveller. Rooms include ensuite bathroom, hot and cold water, fan and a shared terrace.
Evolution is home to one of the most highly rated restaurants on the island, where guests will find delicious homemade food to suit all palates. Known as The Craic House, it offers an authentic Celtic commitment to fun and frivolity, and has gained a solid reputation for its service-orientated philosophy and innovative food. Guests will find a small pub-inspired menu alongside an ever-changing specials board both created using fresh produce and local flair.
Evolution is located directly on the beach providing direct access to the relaxing sun beds and the ocean beyond – snorkelling equipment is available to rent from the resort.
Evolution's TDI Five Star Instructor Training Facility and PADI Five Star Resort is extremely well equipped for a fun and safe diving experience. The dive centre incorporates a fully-stocked retail shop and rental equipment is maintained, replaced and upgraded constantly, with a guarantee everything is done to the highest European standards.

Evolution Resort uses the word ‘progressive’ when describing themselves – aiming not to repeat what has been done before but rather focus on good dive training, creating quality divers with good skills and awareness for the environment and their part in protecting it. They naturally brought this philosophy into the running of the resort itself driven by the eco-friendly principles of ‘Reduce, Recycle, Reuse’. They have received awards recognising them as one of the most eco-friendly and progressive resorts on Malapascua Island.
