What’s beyond the Nova Beach Resort?
Spending your time in Nova Beach Resort is like reaching out and touching it in your hand as a beginning of the journey.
Aki Kawamura is a Japanese diver who loves the life on the beach more than anything. Nova comes from Supernova which is a star that suddenly increases greatly in brightness because of a catastrophic explosion that ejects most of its mass. Mr. Kawamura’s vision for Panglao Island is the same as Supernova, he aims to build a mark in diving resort in Bohol.
Certainly, he’s dedication touched our team in so many ways, he believes that life connecting with nature has been neglected by the young generations nowadays. Life has been defined by the latest technologies, he referred the life resorts as no clock, no driving, no cell phone, even television, but you get to connect with the nature and innocent companions you get to reach the sea, sky, clouds,water, wind and eat with delicious food.
Mr. Kawamura with his resort staff and guests.
“People were born without holding nothing.
Life is short, why don’t you enjoy some time of your life?
Nova Beach Resort is a place where candid hearts gathered, a pleasurable time in walking with bare feet and with a pride of showing the real you.”
