Pilar’s Residence | Resort By The Sea In Malapascua Island

Malapascua, a small island north of Cebu, remains a haven set in the brilliant blue Visayan Sea unspoilt and famed for its white sands, clean clear waters, and stunning underwater treasures.

Pilar’s Residence on Malapascua Island is nestled on a hill wih an overlooking main house and steps down to a rock right by the sea where the reception, restaurant, lounges and more rooms are, providing a breathtaking view of sea and sky bounded by two private coves of white sands accented by nature’s rock formations.

Owned by former Miss Philippines and multi-awarded actress, Pilar Pilapil, this little paradise on sunwashed shores and pristine waters, affords guests privacy – a home to retreat, a place to recharge, a setting to rekindle love and romance.

Pilar has her own boat to transport guests and friends from Maya directly to this private haven by the sea. The boat is also available for island hopping and island tours.

Pilar’s Residence welcomes you to uniquely designed rooms furnished for your comfort. You may choose air-conditioned or opt for seabreeze and the cool air from the mountains that surround the property. Balconies open to uninterrupted views of the sea and the lighthouse tower.

“LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman” (Ps 15:1-3).

Thank you for sharing this amazing get-away! Heaven on earth!


Your Comments Lyn this is amazing. Your painting is lovely. I visited the Philippines in 1993. It was beautiful.


Greetings Lynn,

I am clearing through my 47,000 + emails and looking at which I want to save and saw your post. AMAZINGLY beautiful haven you shared with us.

I would love to go to this place. It reminds me of my love Bali. Do you live here?
I saw the magnificent art work you displayed and it so perfectly mirrors the feeling this sanctuary evokes.

Please share more details if you can.

Blessings and until soon,


Yes, Malapascua Island is one of the beautiful islands here in the Philippines. There are so many to explore and enjoy especially the beaches. We often go to this place as a family because the owner is a close friend and it’s always a refreshing retreat. If you’re planning to visit the Philippines, you have a friend here… Thank you Sandra for dropping by.
