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

Just great staff to help you with your stay. Wonderful scuba diving in Bunaken marine park. Diving activities were well planned every day. Equipment was good and very well mantained. The local dive guides really top notch. The visibility at Bunaken was 75 feet plus every day. Super great place to go DIVING! Loved it and want to go back!

First come, I think will stay at a resort, but it is totally different. What was shown through photographs is different than the reality. It turned out that I stay in a villa in the countryside. The Room without a television and telephone connection, hot shower water passable, and many insects. Wifi is not accessible from inside the room. To... More

There is a difference between judging something based on Information or on an assumption. Not with a single word it is mentioned on our website that the rooms are equipped with television and telephone connection. We are a Dive Resort and not a Business Hotel! It has also to be said that the author of this comment has not even... More
