The island nation of Indonesia straddles the equator between the Indian and Pacific Oceans and lies at the heart of the ‘Coral Triangle’ - the epicentre of the world’s marine biodiversity. Nowhere on earth can visitors experience such a range of spectacular diving - from encounters with huge whale sharks and oceanic manta rays, to muck dives with beautiful Rhinopias and the exceedingly rare psychedelic frogfish.
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.
- Malapascua's best ranked dive resort and restaurant combined
- Great for beginners, technical divers and all in between
- Leading environmentally friendly business on the island
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.
OCEAN VIEW DELUXE
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.
GARDEN FAN ROOM
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's TDI Five Star Instructor Training Facility and PADI Five Star Resort is extremely well equipped. Equipment is maintained, replaced and upgraded constantly and they guarantee everything is done to the highest European standards.
For students, an indoor classroom is available to learn in comfort. For photographers, space is available upon request as well as 110V if required. If you have any special requirements though, please let us know.
Nitrox (and helium) is available for certified divers (although we can arrange a course for those that aren't certified yet). Evolution uses aluminium 80 litres tanks with DIN fittings but have adaptors for any customers using Yoke.
Evolution has top of the line facilities for tech, trimix and CCR rebreather diving. They offer rental equipment, various tank sizes and even sidemount training and equipment. If you’re just getting started or an experienced tech diver they can take care of your needs.
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.
