After travelling and diving around half the world we chose this magical place to settle down and make our dream come true: to lead a simple and quiet life, without waste and excess, in full contact with nature, away from the hustle and bustle and the stress of the "civilised" world and to share it with the lucky travellers who are able to come here. And that's how it all started.

You understand you have reached paradise when you step foot on the Togian island and you fully experience it when you drop your suitcases at Bahia Tomini. How to describe this place without using superlatives? It just feels you are one with nature whilst enjoying the comfort of a very cozy and well decorated bungalow. The owners and their outstanding team welcomed us like friends, with outstanding meals, ping pong games and tailor made daily excursions (snorkeling, visiting, diving) to make each of our days at Bahia Tomini simply unforgettable. A warm thank you, we will never forget our stay with you!

Bahia Tomini is a true paradise! the journey is long but it is oh so worth it. Whatever amount of days you think you want to spend here, just double it because you do not want to leave this place. Trust me. The togeans are beautiful and staying here is the icing on the cake. The owners are super welcoming and make the best food imaginable. Not just indonesia food but everything from pizza to bread and cakes. The bungalows are just the right mix between funky, comfortable and stylish. The beach is whiter than white and the coconuts are free. Great snorkeling and diving out front with sharks, tuna, eagle rays, sweetlips, etc. Nice jungle hikes and village to visit as well.

Best place to stay in the Togeans without a doubt. Enrique and Eva are the perfect hosts, the coral reef at Bahia Tomini is just world class thanks to the conservation work that they do, they cook by far the best food you can find in Indonesia...just perfect. Anything shorter that a week here is too little time. We'll be back soon!

My girlfriend and I spent 5 nights in Bahia Tomini in July 2019 and we are finding it hard to describe how special these 5 days have been. Starting from the hosts, Quique and Eva who are Spanish and the whole crew are incredible hosts, always available, always up for a joke, extremely knowledgable and super attentive. They do serve an incredible food that varies pretty much every night and me being Italian it was an amazing surprise to be served pizza cooked in a stone oven in such a beautiful setting. In addition to this, when we got there we soon realised that Quique en Eva were the only people who do sell beers in that side of Malenge which for us a bonus considering that people from nearby resorts were coming there to buy them. The location in itself is pure paradise - the whole place looks like it just came out of a postcard. The bungalows are pure bliss - we stayed in the Pink Seafront bungalow for three nights and then we moved to the Bajo Villa for the last two nights. Both were extremely beautiful, spacious and comfortable. The bajo villa was slightly bigger and is over water which meant that when the tide is high there were so many baby sharks swimming underneath which was certainly a unique and beautiful sight. There are also plenty of stunning diving and snorkelling spots close by the resort and Quique and Eva are extremely knowledgable about both diving and also diving spots. It's safe to say that this is one of the best places that my partner and I have ever stayed in, and it's one of the very few places that made us feel emotional when we left. If you are looking for something extremely special, with full meaning and if you would like to create unforgettable memories, then we would highly and strongly suggest you to stay here.

Bahia tomini is just something straight out of a movie. The small bay itself with the pearl-white sand and shallow waters, are perfected by the lush nature behind it. If you're ever looking for a Robin Crusoe getaway, this is the place. Kike and Eva make you feel at ease straight away and you can see that they have made this their home. Small details are cared for and the food is amazing, given the limited resources they have. To top it off, the bajo villa is truly beautiful with a small patio overlooking the sea. From your hammock you can stare ours into the vastness of the ocean and watch the sun set in the sea. The only reason I'm not giving five stars, is because in our villa, there was a roach(the bug) problem. One evening, we had 7 at once! The evening after three, etc. I do understand this is on an almost uninhabited island and this is the jungle, but I believe that a resort that is receiving mainly western guests, should handle this problem with some treatment to the villas. I've seen examples of treatment in Bali, where it had no effect on the surrounding nature. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and thank Eva and Kike for some unforgettable experiences in Paradise!!

We spent three nigths at Bahia Tomini and truly enjoyed it. Since there are only 3 cottages it is a very private and calm atmosphere. The food is amongst the best we had in Indonesia. The beach and the house reef are beautiful (you can watch baby sharks and rays from your terrace). Although the snorkel and boat trips offered are great fun they are a bit over priced compared to other places. Thanks a lot and if we come again we certainly will stay at bahia tomini again.

I stayed a week here. Guests are treated like family in this small and cosy resort. The ambience is incredible and the owners are the best guardians a beach could ever have. They genuinely care deeply about the wildlife here, above and below the sea. I even saw Eva run to find a suitable shell for a homeless hermit crab she discovered. The staff are wonderful, and enjoy their jobs and appreciate the kindness and care offered by their employers. The gardens are stunning and full of colour and variety and the decor inside and out is creative and full of inspired ideas that make best use of the gifts given by nature. Guests frequently return here. Great snorkelling right out the front and lots of baby sharks around. And the food...I have no words to describe how good it was! I have spent around 20 months in total in Sulawesi over the last decade. You will not find better food than this. And if you are vegetarian you will die from pleasure at the choices offered, all cooked with the greatest love and care. Booking is highly recommended as they are a small and popular resort.

Bahia Tomini is unbelievably beautiful! The resort is located in a small, heavenly bay. With just three bungalows, it is a truly peaceful place, perfect to relax. The two owners are awesome. They make you feel at home from the very first minute and have truly turned Bahia Tomini into something special. Their staff is very friendly and helpful. They also serve the best food we have eaten in Indonesia - very delicious (best vegetarian food ever)! Everyone eats together on a big table, three times a day. They also serve something sweet in between. The place is nice for snorkeling and diving (dive schools nearby). The reef starts a few meters into the ocean. You have to swim over some seagrass to get there, which did not bother us at all (just for your information). You can also do excursions and other things there. The bungalows are great, with light all day (solar) and a bathroom with a shower from above and a flush toilet (not usual on the Togians). The view from the balcony is simply amazing. After just eight nights we had a very hard time to leave. We could have stayed there for much longer. We highly recommend this place! Thanks Eva and Kikeee! We will definitely return some day!
