Airport pickup and delivery, then 45 mins' boat from Manado. Beautiful location on a very nice house reef. Snorkeling and diving trips twice a day - or you can just relax.Peaceful and elegant, small and friendly. Owners are a Japanese/Irish couple, extremely nice and pleasant to be with. There are three meals a day, delicious and different every day but... More

Stayed and dived at Cha Cha for a week with a group of friends. I fell in love with the place that I went back again for another week the month after! Cha Cha is located off the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. It was a pleasant ride from the airport to the harbour, and then followed by the boat transfer... More

I had been diving in Manado and Bunaken in 2010. I had stayed in Manado at that time. The diving in Bunaken really left me breathless. I decided that the next time I returned, I would stay on Bunaken island. I chose Bunaken Cha Cha, as I had read many great reviews. And in the end, I can say that... More

This was our second stay at Cha Cha Resort. And since it had been almost 2 years since we were last there, we were half wondering whether it was as good as we remembered. We were very happy to find that it more than lived up to our expectations, and we are already planning to go back next year. We... More

Lovely stay at Bunaken Cha Cha although it's not for everyone. The owners, Raf and Reiko, are extremely attentive to guests, and you can sense the pride they have in Cha Cha. It's clearly the result of a lot of hard work and love. Raf is straight-talking and never short of a joke (appropriate or otherwise!). The discussions and debates... More

This was probably THE most relaxing family holiday we have ever had! From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home by Raf and his friendly team. As first time snorkelers, we were blown away by the profusion of sea life on the house reef, but it only got better as we also visited nearby reefs where... More
