About Kasai Village Dive Resort
Situated on the lovely and remote western shore of the Moalboal Peninsula, Kasai Village Beach Resort boasts a secluded setting away from the hustle and bustle of Cebu Island, but with easy access to its best attractions. The resort combines fantastic services and attentive staff to cater to every guests’ needs - perfectly complimented by a smattering of little luxuries and a pampering boutique ambience. A great mix of activities is also available, combining adventurous excursions and world-class scuba diving with more relaxing facilities such as a luxurious day spa, pool and private beach.
Kasai Village was designed by divers for divers, so it’s no surprise that the house reef is one of its main attractions. Guests can step right off the private beachfront and dive, swim, or snorkel this flourishing coral garden boasting rare sights like mating mandarin fish and a few resident sea turtles. Sea kayaking and beach volleyball are also available, perfect for passing time on your surface intervals. Trips to Kawasan Falls, golfing, trekking, and mountain biking can be arranged as full or half-day excursions, and the resort’s team of local travel experts are happy to help!
Explore the resort
At the heart of Kasai Village lies a stylish and modern beachfront restaurant, offering a relaxed yet elegant setting, and beautiful views over the Tanon Strait. Meals combine exotic local flavours with international staples and are prepared using sustainably sourced seafood and fresh Filipino ingredients. Breakfast can be delivered right to your patio, and romantic private dinners can be organised on the private white sandy beach. The resort’s Rock Bar also boasts spectacular views of the ocean, top-shelf beer, wine, and spirits, and a quiet yet social atmosphere.
A fantastic three-metre deep swimming pool is set among the resort’s gardens, with a confined shallow area for children and plenty of sun loungers and seating - the perfect place to soak up sun. There’s also a top-rated spa on-site, offering a variety of treatments such as mani-pedis, refreshing facials, and a signature four hands massage. Down on the resort’s private beach there’s a well-maintained volleyball court as well as kayaks for exploring Moalboal’s rugged coastline by sea, either with or without a guide. Best of all, with just 25 rooms on-site, you’ll enjoy easy access to all these facilities minus the tourist crowds.

The waters around the Moalboal Peninsula are packed with some of the highest biodiversity in the Philippines, from large pelagics to unique macro wildlife and schools with thousands of fish. The dive team at Kasai offers a range of marine ecology courses for guests to better understand this diverse ecosystem, including shark diving, coral identification, and sea turtle ecology.
As one of the primary employers in the area, Kasai Village offers progressive pay and social welfare packages to its team and ensures its interiors are decorated using the handicrafts of local artists. The resort is also involved in local recycling efforts and uses a water filling station to reduce the resort’s consumption of single-use plastics.
