This was my second visit to Bunaken Island, but this was a different resort to last time. I really enjoyed the resort itself - the bungalows are lovely, they are beautifully clean, and the balcony is a great place to relax and look at the fantastic views (bungalow one, sea view). The restaurant area has a lounge area with cushions...

Great view from the room, clean and quiet place, can rent a boat from the hotel. Good reef just at the hotel beach.

My partner and I stayed at Bunaken Island Resort for a week in November last year in the middle of our trip to Asia, and it was the highlight of our trip. The owners arranged a hotel for us in Monado for one night when we arrived and transport out to the island the following morning which all went smoothly....

We will remember our Bunaken holiday fondly. Our two kids, 9yo and 12yo, had a great time exploring and playing. From snorkeling across the reef to visiting volcanos on Sulawesi, our week was rich and varied. Martijn and the lovely staff were always one step ahead, suggesting activities and arranging last minute changes to suit the weather. The food was...
