Panorama Diving Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 April 2017

We spent 10 nights in Panorama 2 with Ester and Sven (Sylvie and Rob in Panorama 1 are awesome too!). Our chalet was beautiful and comfortable. Everyone is so hospitable and friendly (Lucie, Erni, Herman, and the many other staff) that we felt right at home. Ester, the head chef, prepares a delicious family-style banquet every day. It was extremely fun to sit around the table to share meals with other guests and gain so many new friends. Lucie and her cousin were so kind as to guide us to the big village and bring us around too.

Oh, and of course... the remarkable diving. Sven runs a tight ship with his crew. Yobel and Ali are awesome dive guides (Yobel is the macro guru - he finds the tiniest of tiny macro life and started to teach us how to find them too during the dives). We always had great laughs on the boat thanks to the diving boat crew - Rehol, Leos, and Tambrin. The coral reef is still thriving and the wall diving is spectacular. We couldn't stop ourselves from signing up for more dives each day. My husband and I had a blast and have plans to return!

PS:/ The power goes off in the day (around 7am until about 5pm) - which is excellent to get a phone/computer/internet detox. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: Splurge a little and get the nice chalet. Totally worth it for the price.

We stayed there longer than expected because we loved : the bungalows, the food, the friendly staff, the safety dives and the sunset! Don't expect luxury in your bungalow but expect clean, big and charming room. We have been traveling for a few months and when we arrived there, the meals felt like Christmas since there were so many good things to eat on the table. Every day we had fish, vegetables, fruits, salads, local specialties.
The guides and dive masters on the boat are joking and friendly which makes a good vibe.
Thank you for everything. We will come back one day for sure!

To those who consider not to visit Panorama because of plastic trash :
If you do care about the trash problem, then you should exactly go there !
Panorama Dive Resort makes a big effort in cleaning up the mess which mostly comes with currents from city Manado and the towns along the rivers over there.
Support of people like the Panorama family, reducing your own waste production and speaking about the issue is essential in the solution of the problem. Looking away, just going somewhere else is not.

As my title suggests, this place is very quiet and peaceful, where you can rest and recharge your battery. We had a budget room with an excellent view to the Celebes sea and a near by volcano, with sunset every night. The price included 3 meals a day and fresh fruit. The meals were delicious with good mixture of local and western food. The owners are very kind and helpful. Sven always made sure that we do a dive site we haven't done before. Ester organized everything for us and she is a very good cook. Jobel has eyes like a hawk, he showed us lots of interesting things under water, big and macro. He is a very friendly and funny guy. Diving is beautiful here, lots of turtles, colorful reef fish and healthy coral. During the nights we played cards with the staff and the atmosphere was awesome, we really enjoyed having fun with them. On the last night we had bone fire with guitar, dancing and some arak :) (bit more than some ;) ) Thanks guys for everything, we cant wait to return. Sampai jumpa!
