Myself with another six-divers from TigerDivers, Penang stayed here from 4-13th.April, 2015 and we did nine days of scuba-diving. We had lots of fun staying at this resort; which has a spacious restaurant, lots of relaxing huts with views, lots of hammocks, nice spacious bungalows (especially the honeymoon-suite), three meals per day with all day coffee and tea, healthy coral-reef...

Kadidiri is like the major begin of everyone who goes to the togians, as it was for us. On Kadidiri you have three choices, budget - lestari and black marlin which is basically the same as paradise. But we chose paradise as best of this island, why Suburb food, only place which also served different food in the togians. Nice,... More

Me and groups of friends arrived in the morning and was really impressed. We stayed for 5 days in Kadidiri and have enough time to explore the island. Kadidiri paradise have so many room types and will offer you different view and facilities. The beach is the biggest one compare to other resort there. You can relax on the beach,reading... More

As I arrived at Kadidiri Paradise I was pleasantly surprised. By no means did it justify all the negative reviews. We took the honeymoon suites and the VIP bungalow. They were located in the water with a staircase going down from the balcony deck into the water for snorkeling. Since the water near the bungalows was too dirty, I still... More

It is a totally a great place. Wooden cottage, traditional mosquito net, great sunrise and sunset spot. It also located in center of togian islands. Enjoy your quiet and lazy moment here and forget all your gadgets! One note is, the water is quite hard to find. The hotel need to take the water from another island.

Who said paradise resort? It is hell resort! When leaving the resort on the Kadidiri boat to go to Wakai, just in front of the resort, on the way used several times everyday, the boat touched the chorals because this diving boat was overcrowed by people going to catch the ferry (almost all guests of resort) with all their luggage,...

We were there in low season. The bungalows are a bit more expensive than at Black Marlin. Drinking water needs to be paid for, while this is free at Black Marlin. The service is okayish although the owners of the place did not show up once. The electricity is supposed to be available from 6 PM to 11 PM but... More

Although we were advised to go rather to Bolilanga we stayed there as it was in our itinerary and it was to late to change. Fortunately we had a bungalow on the beach and we did not dive. We just went on one snorkelling trip and other days were just hanging around and resting. The island is beautiful but dirty.... More

Most people when visiting the Togean Islands head straight to Kadidiri (as we did). Please DON'T there are much nicer places to stay on local islands. It really is such a shame with Kadidiri Paradise. There is no denying that the Island is breath taking. It is beautiful... and so nearly perfect...but there's one problem... the management. The facilities are... More

We stayed at Kadidiri Paradise a few weeks ago. We were a little apprehensive after seeing many poor reviews on Trip Advisor. Paradise has taken these poor reviews to heart and have changed things around for the better. Food was plentiful, varied and good. The resort staff was very helpful and enthusiastic. The dive crew and equipment was also exceptional.... More
