We had a fantastic stay at Harmony Bay. The bay itself is absolutely gorgeous, the bungalows are spacious and I could spend a year chilling in the hammock on the veranda. Valentina and Rock took great care of us even though they had literally just returned from Europe and came on the same boat we did to the resort. The beach was soft and incredible and our kids loved playing on it and in the ocean. The sunset views were spectacular and we loved the shady resort area and the food. They even went out of their way to help us spot some endemic owls since they saw I was enjoying looking for birds around the property. This is a simple place, there is only electricity in the evenings and not even fans but the breeze and the jungle tend to cool down the bungalows and the chill atmosphere lets you immerse yourself in the surrounding beauty of nature. It's a wonderful place to go off the grid for a few days which is becoming increasingly harder to find in our interconnected world and the snorkeling on their coral garden is incredible. You have to swim out a way over the shallow ledge to get to the reef but when you do it's like swimming into another world full of colorful coral and fish, it's absolutely magical! Days spent reading in a hammock and snorkeling that reef will be some of the best days of your life.

We’ve been in this amazing place for a week with a couple of friends. The staff was kind and friendly all the time, we enjoyed talking with them and playing beach volley matches too! The food was the best we found in sulawesi, we ate different kind of plates everyday including fresh fish, great pizza and delicious snacks. Every meal is served to all guests at one big table and we had the chance to meet many people in a very sharing atmosphere. The resort offers different types of activities, they guided us in snorkelling trips to see the coral reef, one of the best experience we have ever made. Our friends are (advance divers) went diving with the resort’s dive master (soon Instructor) Is, very professional and prepared that brought them in amazing dive spots. We definetely recommend it, we had the best time!

That first view at Harmony Bay when you cross the corner with the boat ❤️. This is paradise. We stayed 3 nights at the cabin close to the beach (recommended!). The hospitality of the whole team is warm and family-like. The food is just amazing. There is no warm water, no mobile or wifi connection and electricity runs from 6pm to 10pm. There is a big table for breakfast, lunch, dinner - ideal to share travel experiences with the other guests. The resort also has a diving center. We had a really great dive master on our trips, fluent in English and showing us all the underwater beauties. And the jelly-fish lake is closeby! Ideal for a 3-5 nights stay. Don’t hesitate, this is a jewel in Togean Islands

We had high hopes for Harmony Bay, and we were not disappointed. The setting is pristine and isolated - exactly like the pictures. Yes, it is worth it to spend a slight bit extra to get a waterfront villa. You are just a stone's throw from the water, and the front veranda with both chairs and hammocks are large enough for two or more. The veranda is where we spent most of our time, just enjoying the beautiful bay and surrounding lush jungle views. During our stay at HB, there were only a couple more guests, and the peaceful feeling with the beautiful sunsets and waves lapping in front of our bungalow was just hypnotic. The bed was a bit firm, but adequate. Yes, there is only electricity from dusk until 11:30pm, so if you want to charge your phone or other electronics, you time it appropriately. And no, there isn’t any cell service or wifi, though Yang Yang, the manager, does have the ability to communicate out if needed. Overall we were very comfortable, but if the breezes die down, it can get sticky without any fans or air conditioning. You need to take your own heat tolerance into consideration. We enjoyed the family style meals with the other guests. They cook eggs to order in the morning, or can provide other breakfast options. There is also always a morning fruit bowl, and there are thermoses of hot water with tea bags and instant coffee on the table throughout the day (we were happy that we had brought our own creamer). The cook includes a lot of fresh vegetables for lunch and dinner - a real treat when eating on a rather remote island. We ate a lot of fish which we really enjoyed, but when a family arrived with children, all of a sudden there were pasta dishes and other foods that were more kid friendly. And their afternoon snacks are absolutely delicious! However, my husband’s favorite was having young coconuts, kelapa mudah, freshly cut down from the top of the trees right in the compound. They cut off the tops of the coconut, and then you drink the coconut water straight from the coconut. It is refreshing and full of healthy electrolytes. Then you can have it cut open further, and use a spoon to scoop out the tender flesh. What a treat! Yang Yang, the onsite manager, was quite helpful arranging whatever activities we wanted to do for the day, whether it was going to the jellyfish lake, snorkeling, or out to explore local fishing villages. His English is quite good, and he was able to give us great advice to help us match our plans to the weather. We had some windy days which kept us closer to the island, but we were still able to kayak to the next harbor where there was even better snorkeling than in our own bay. We also took a jungle walk behind the resort which let us experience what it is like on the inside of the island, and visited both a nearby resort as well as found the other way to get to the bay next to us. We were advised to look for the man who was boiling down palm sap to make the local delicacy, gula merah, a form of brown sugar. We bought some from him and shared it with the other guests and staff. It was delicious! Plus it was fascinating seeing how he collected the sap from the trees and then boiled it down in huge woks. The HB management helped us arrange our transport from Luwuk to Ampana and a hotel on the mainland before we would take a speedboat to Waukai. Then we were met in Waukai and transported to our own island, Kadidiri, about half an hour away. This ended up being very important assistance since all boats from Ampana were canceled due to windy conditions, and the local contact person helped us with updates and arrangements to get a boat the following day. They also helped us arrange a comfortable AC’d cabin on the Gorontalo Ferry for our departure from the island. It is really rare to find a place as unspoiled and natural as the Togeans. It is not that easy to get to the islands, but the payoff when you get there is certainly worth it.

We had an amazing experience and ended up extending our stay at harmony bay from 2 to 7 nights and could easily have stayed longer. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere and very well maintained property. The sea view bungalow is really worth the extra money, we loved relaxing on the balcony whilst enjoying the sunset. The private beach is stunning and the snorkeling on the house reef is spectacular. Food is delicious and plentiful and the meal setup makes it easy to meet other guests. The hosts and staff team are always extremely friendly, cheerful and you can really feel that the upmost priority is that guests have a great experience. Perhaps one caveat is that you need to jungle trek or swim to the next beach to access internet although honestly this is also part of the charm. We highly recommend this resort!

We have no critics to make of this magical place... We stayed at this resort for 7 days and never felt the need to leave. The place is simply splendid and the bungalows are a dream! We spend hours on our terrace enjoying the moment, the place and the unforgettable view. Yayan and his amazing family took care of us like never before at any other resort! They are always singing, smiling and the food is delicious, healthy and for 7 days always varied, which we got used to and missed when we left Harmony Bay! We will come back for sure! Thank you for everything Yayan and family, you you lift this place to the stars! ❤️ Sara & Steven

This resort has it all; it is located in a beautiful secluded bay with sandy beach and clear, calm waters allowing you to stare at sunsets, dreaming your worries away or taking a swim any time of the day or night as there is no currents (or very weak ones). The cottages are beautiful, hammocks plentiful and there is a lush forest just in the back of the resort, where you can easily spot sulawesi hornbills flying around in the mornings. The food is very tasty and diverse, lots of fruits and veggies and the staff is friendly and always ready to help. The diving is great, we saw some big sharks also! The islands feel remote and it is exactly as on the photos! It is well taken care for the diving safety and the crew makes sure all your wishes are met, even the ones after diving - we played cards, played guitar&sang...or I just lied on the beach in the nights, watching falling stars once the generator was turned off each night. I cannot imagine what could have been better, the people here are wonderful and they give this place a soul! I would highly recommend Harmony Bay, I definitely plan to come back! All the best, keep up the great work! I miss your smiles already!

What a pleasant stay. My friends and I were having a trip to Togean Islands and stay at Harmony Bay. When we arrived at the harbor, our tour guide Mr. Owan and Mr. Yem nicely welcomes us all. Entering the resort, we are so surprised with the enchanting view of the sea, island, and the corals.. so beautiful! Mr. Yayan also waits and welcoming us in front of the resort. Their cottage was so nice and cozy with all the hammocks and bed. The restaurant was very clean and food was good, their staff at the restaurant Halima and the other woman were very accommodating and nice. This resort literally has everything we need, they provide all of the snorkeling and diving stuffs, cano, speed boat, spa, and even do laundry. But, the electricity only available starting at 6 to 11 pm and it’s enough to recharge our gadgets. This private resort is so nice, peaceful, and perfect for having an escape from our hectic urban life. One thing gives me deep impression, which is upon check out their staff told us that they will wait until our ferry pass by resort, and they will light up their flashlights as a last goodbye. And, they did it. At first we didn’t noticed since it’s already dark when we leave the harbor, we couldn’t recognize if we are passing the resort until flashlights started to blinking. A small thing but means a lot, that moment becomes so emotional for my friends and I. We’re so touched with the warm hospitality given by staff during our stay and even when we’re leaving togean island. With all my heart, once again I wanna thank to a all of Harmony Bay Resort staff Yayan, Yem, Halima, Sofia, Michael, and the other old man and woman (sorry I didn’t know their name) for making our holiday becomes more memorable. Wish them to keep healthy, and success for Harmony Bay Resort.

We booked for 2 nights but stayed for 4 nights because we loved it so much!! The owners are super friendly and so is the staff! The location is like paradise, and they keep the beach super clean! The food was delicious! The bathroom of the cottage is great, the matras of the bed can be improved. But we definitely recommend this place!!
