Went there with my wife for the discovery Scuba diving, had a great time. Although it is not the cheapest but well worth it for a first time dive. Our instructor Fenny took good care of us, would recommend this place. Bunaken is a awesome place to go to even just for snorkeling. If you do the discovery you get... More

I always enjoy my diving holidays and @ Thalassa is among my favorites. Its very special place where you can enjoy the fun together with everybody (fellow guests and staffs). My friend and I make many new friends from all over the world. Go out and enjoy great outdoor moments. (scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming pools or sigh-seeing around Manado various... More

We had 2 cottages for 6 nights and had a great time. We were extremely impressed with the service and overall happy and positive atmosphere generated by the staff. The tone is always set from the top and Simone(the owner) is an extremely nice person and obviously well respected. The diving was well organised and we felt comfortable and well... More

We spent 7 nights in this resort, with our 2 children (1 and 4 yo). We needed a lot of special favors and a lot of flexibility (leaving the children with the staff, taking them some days on the boat, cancelling some dives at the very last minute). They were always very helpful and understanding. Indonesian people are very genuine... More

We stayed at Thalassa for 14 days and could not fault our experience. Our Ocean view bungalow was really well appointed with loads of room. The staff are exceptionally friendly and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The food is great plenty to eat and the flavours and variety of dishes are amazing, put on weight... More

I decided to dive with Thalassa during our stay in Manado, however we did not stay in the resort itself. I very much likes diving with awesome Thalassa staff who were knowledgeable and caring throughout the dives. Bunaken was simply awesome! Very relaxed and nice dives.

Visited Thalassa resort in March for 5 days, the rainy season without rain.. We had one of the roomy chalets with sea view, the best shower ever, loads of plugs which came in handy to recharge all the camera and lighting batteries. Diving well organised - as you would expect from a resort run by Simone :-) - dive staff... More

After more than 4 years of absence we came back again for diving to Thalassa. We were received as old friends byf the management and the staff which we still recognised. We felt at home right from the first minute we had arrived. The set up of the facilities can be judged perfect for families as well as is for... More

My Girlfriend and I came to Thalassa for a day trip of diving after having spent a week on Bunaken Island and diving with other operators based on the Island. While the dive operators on the Island itself were friendly and accommodating, diving with Thalassa was unlike anything I have ever experienced (I have been diving for years with dozens... More
