Wow, what an incredible place. I've travelled throughout Indonesia over the last ten years and found few places that can rival what Sanctum offers in such a beautiful and remote location. We came as a family and the Sanctum team made us feel so welcome and at home! The family room was spacious with plenty of room for my family and even a big extra storage closet to put all of our bags, which was unexpected but VERY welcome. Hot water showers, 24 hour electricity, cold drinks! These things are HARD to come by in remote places like the Togians and made coming to Sanctum feel like luxury after a more basic stay on Kadidiri. Hannah who manages the dive center did a great job running our dives, going out of her way to accomodate our needs and running an open water course for a friend of our who joined our trip. She's fantastic and a huge part of what made our time at Sanctum special. Fate who is transitioning from resort work to dive instruction made sure that everything was well organized for us and communicated very clearly with us. She made us feel so welcome and taken care of and the whole team watched out for our kids while we were diving and made sure that they had a fantastic time as well. The diving was awesome, beautiful coral, schools of anthias, snappers, and barracudas. Napoleon wrasse, crabs, nudibranches, even some really cool flasher wrasse on some of the shallow muck dives. The dive sites are close to the resort and the boats are high quality. We loved getting our free Nitrox course since we did over 6 dives each, it was well organized and a great way to add to our diving knowledge! The Volcano hike made a for a really cool non-diving day even though it was hot it was amazing to see and added an extra element to our stay besides just diving. Also, the new pool is fantastic and again, and absolute luxury in the Togians. My kids LOVED IT! The reef right off the jetty has fantastic snorkelling as well and very easy. Ohh yeah, and the food, the food was amazing, especially the fish on Christmas eve, I don't travel for food but the food at Sanctum was the best I've ever had at a dive resort in all of my travels.

Beautiful sea view bungalow with open roof bathroom with even hot water. Brand new mosquito net around the bed. Hammock on the veranda. Excellent food (too much !) and always a good variety of meals during my 5 days of stay. Free refill drinking water. I didn't dive but the other 10-13 guests did and all were very satisfied. There are 4 to 5 small boats and plenty of staff in order to offer different diving spots according to levels. French owner (who can be rude sometimes with some guests) and a young Brit lady full of energy : excellent management. Electricity 24 h. and wifi working well during night time. There is even a small pool ! Highly recommended ! Nice walk up to the volcano's hot springs (45 minutes walk after 45 minutes on motorbike : 250 K).

Dear Cedric, Fate & Hannah, I write to thank all of you for another wonderful trip to your Sanctum Una-Una last week. It's lovely meeting your warm and friendly staff again, and that the place is gradually being upgraded to meet the demands of the many guest during your peak months. Fate, you have been very sleek for having coordinated everything for my journey to your resort, and I shall be liaising with you soon for the Group Trip there next May. Sorry I missed you when you left for your trip to Bali, and look forward very much to seeing you again when I return there. Hannah, you have simply been awesome dancing between Marketing, Resort Operations and DiveMaster, and still manage to be composed and light hearted throughout your intense duties. You amazing lady, we shall go through your lovely underwater photos when I get back. The hospitality of the resort and many yummy meals that came out from Anti ( kitchen head ) and her team is often on time, not to mention great ... the Pizza was bloody dazzling. It is a joy to see all of them work passionately to present their best to the guests. Faldo, Unz and the boys over at the diving department were amazing and often so button down in all that they do. You have a great, talented, friendly and responsible team. However, you must keep a serious watch on your DM Trainee ( Zach ). He almost crack my skull with his gross clumsiness, and repeated another unnecessary poor entry subsequently. While he is nice in personality, he is somewhat not paying enough attention to simple instructions. Lastly, Im tres happy to have met you Cedric (.. finally) and thank you for your kindness and jovial self, and for having walked all the way to wish us a warm goodbye when we left. My group and I are looking forward very much to our trip to Sanctum in 2024, and I wish you all joy and love everyday at your gorgeous paradise. yours, Dennis

A hidden paradise. The diving is fantastic, healthy coral reef with huge sponges, so many colorful fishes on every dive. We saw an eagle ray, turtles, a family of bump heads feeding, Beautiful hard coral gardens. The staff is great, everyone was so helpful. Cedric, the manager, was extremely accommodating. He tried so hard to please all of his guests. I highly recommend this resort for the diving experience and the wonderful staff.

It was just perfekt and we extended our stay because we just couldnt leave this lovely paradise and the Sanctum family. It fet like being with friends Who welcomed us by the bottom of their heart. Cedrick and Fate as well as all other members from housekeeping, cooking, diving have been so helpful, lovely and enjoyable company. It was easy to adress any need or wish in terms of food, accomodation, transport, expeditions and diving. It was also heartwarming to see how they interact with each other. It seems like the whole team really love their place and work. the rooms are spacious and well-furnished and come with moskito-nets and Fans. They have been Set up with a nice style. Upon request the rooms were cleaned and there is also an Option for laundry service. The dive sites are unique and rich in all different kinds of underwater life. The diving was organized and done very professionally. Also the equipment is well maintained. All Divemasters, instructors, guide and captains did very well to make every dive safe and enjoyable. I could come continue forever with this positive review! just visit them by yourself and see it on your own.

Sanctum is a dive center in one of the best dive (or maybe the best) sites we have dived. Most of the Una Una reefs are in excellent condition. We loved especially black forest and Cedricks secret site. The house reef is perfect for snorkeling and free diving. We encountered for example turtles, rays, morays, napoleon fishes and small squads on night dive. Fauna is plenty. Sanctum itself is a full service dive center with a free nitrox. Breakfast and meals are included in accomodation. Food is good and there is plenty of it. Accomodation consist of slightly different beautifull bungalows. Staff is great and includes a lot of local people including 2 professional dive masters and kitchen crew. This was my second trip to Sanctum (first was in 2015). If you want to experience world class diving in a great atmosphere and excellent accomodation, choose Sanctum Una Una. Only down side is the long trip to get there. But that might also be the reason why it is so well preserved. Thanks Cedrick, Fateh, Un, Valdo and the whole crew!

My family and I had a fantastic five days at Sanctum Una Una Eco Dive Resort. The Diving was the best I have done in Indonesia, and having lived here for five years now; I have dived in quite a few places around the country. The was an abundance of dive sites at Una Una, with an impressive amount of variety. I was particularly impressed with the condition of the reefs and the amount of fish seen at the various dive sites. The equipment was modern, well maintained, and there was plenty of it. The dive instructors were highly professional but very relaxed at the same time, which allowed for a stress-free diving experience. Hospitality at the resort was outstanding, and this fun, family-friendly atmosphere made our stay really enjoyable. This was down to all the staff who were working at the resort. The accommodation was good and having electricity 24 hours a day was a bonus as we could use fans during the night. We were given an additional room at no extra cost to make our stay more comfortable, a lovely gesture! There was also free internet which was another big bonus, especially for the kids. The food was delicious, with lots of variety, ranging from Indonesian classics to salad and pasta. Cold water and excellent coffee were also very much appreciated. We will definitely be returning and would highly recommend this resort.

Our stay with our family (2 kids) was perfect at Cedric's homestay! It's a quiet, peaceful and joyful place. When you arrive on the island you seem lost at the end of the world, but you have everything you need at the Sanctum resort. The food is great, the rooms are comfy, the beach is 5 meters from your door... What else do you need?
