This resort was really nice and the location was beautiful. We were lucky to get a big new delux seaview bungalow with a nice hamock on the terrace. The food was very tasty and it was plenty. Also diving was very good and at least with our group the dive times were according to air - so we ended up diving 85 minutes on our beautiful night dive:)

The longer we stayed the more we loved the place. It has an easy going, friendly atmosphere and though it is a budget place, we felt very luxurious looking at the view from our balcony (we stayed in one of the standard cottages). The owner is very friendly and the food is excellent. Every night something different so that you don’t get bored.

The best thing still was the diving. We had one of the best dive guides ever, brilliant and so good in finding the smallest and the weirdest things. I highly recommend staying in this place and diving with them!

where to begin?
The food, so delicious, breakfast, lunch and dinner all included with lots of choices of western food and local food. Everybody eats together.
The accommodation. There are the cheapies, a bit run down (a bit like me), the mid-range, and the fancy places next door but still run by the same people. So pick your budget. They all have in common wonderful views and are clean and comfortable.
The sunsets. the best I have seen. Come and see for yourself/yourselves.
The diving. Sven is the best instructor. If you have never dived before it is the best place to learn. He really cares about your safety. Nothing dodgy about this operation.
If you are already experienced the drop-off is amazing.
Snorkelling. You are welcome to go out on the dive boat usually free of charge. If they are going a long way there is a small charge.Then jump off the boat and .... there are no words to descibe. Look at the photos. Or swim straight out from the beach and .... again wow.
Ultimate fantasy tropical beach getaway. Laze on the sand, cook some food on the beach, hang out with the locals, play some music, watch the sunset.
This is a local family run resort and you will become part of the family.
Remember this is an island and internet and phone connections are not the best. And sometimes the weather is not the best so be prepared if it takes a while to get to the island. The resort has their own boat so they drop people off, do the shopping and then pick you up. all done on island time. or there is a public boat. Or you can hire your own boat.
The rubbish from Manado is a problem.

Room Tip: have a look at the different rooms..there are lots of choices.

During 3 weeks in Sulawesi, this was the best accommodation we stayed in! Amazing food: super delicious, big portions and fresh, really really good! We stayed in a standard cottage (simple, a bit old, but charming) and in a deluxe cottage (extremely nicely renovated with high quality furniture and bali style bathroom and balcony with amazing panorama sea view). Sven is the German owner and dive master and overly nice and helpful. 2-3 dives per day are offered, snorkeling possible on the dive boat for just 25.000, so a great deal! Beachfront is ok but needs some more beds as they are just 3 and they are quickly taken. Swimming only possible in high tide. All in all, highly recommended and I will defiantly come back anytime again!

This resort offers both diving and snorkeling. As snorkelers you are spoilt for areas to go. We went to the otherside of the island which we found quieter with less litter. The litter comes from Manado so much more needs to be done to keep Bunaken a beautiful National Park. The resort offers panaromic views in wooden cottages with open courtyard bathroom. Only a fan assists to keep you cool during the night. Meals are taken together at one sitting as a group. It is good value.
