Even the cheapest room, which we stayed in, was big, clean and comfy. Beautifully placed on the beach between palmtrees and a lagoon in the back. Gorgeous long pier with matress and hammocks to kick back in this little paradise. Great and fun diving instructor, friendly and hilarious staff. Possibilities to visit the jellyfish lake, one of a kind experience,... More

After long way at the ferry from Gorontalo, catch this place is like you have your quality time with no signal mean no gadget, quiet place just feel the sea breeze watching sunset from the jetty. To reach the island need 20 minutes from Kawai Pier (central pier) in Togean with speedboat. The room was nice, attached bathroom. Fan inside... More

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

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.

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
