Great place to stay in Bunaken. We stayed six nights in January and really enjoyed. Food is great, cottages are clean and have huge terraces. They arrange all diving things and you have to just walk in to boat when it leaves in the morning. All diving sites are from 5 to 20 min boat ride. Dive guides knew what... More

Because it was so well reviewed we decided that we make an exception regarding our budget and stay here for two nights. We were disappointed that we didn't get more for what we paid for... We talked to other people who stayed at Bunaken for almost half the price (including three meals and pool). Unless 50 euro's per night is... More

My daughter and I completed our open water course in Living colours and then had some great time diving. Altogether we spent 8 days there. All the diving areas were amazing, and we got to see a lot of different animals including for example turtles, eagle rays, sharks and crabs. Especially the night dive was stunning. We would like to... More

Stayed at Living Colours Dive resort for a week with my friend. We felt welcome from the minute Freddy picked us up from Manado airport and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of our stay. We will definitely go back. Atmosphere on the island is laid back and staff at the resort is really friendly and always willing to help you with... More

The staff are friendly, the food is delicious, the resort itself is clean and well maintained. As a hotel alone, this resort shines. The diving is some of the best I've ever encountered and the dive staff are knowledgeable and experienced. From tea on a balcony overlooking Manado, to spotting sea turtles, I did NOT want to leave. 5 stars... More

Has a great atmosphere through out the day. Good clean rooms with a great view. Shower heaters do not work. Diving centre is really good and friendly. Good food and great BBQ all the staff are really friendly. Quite old and scrappy in some places and needs some work.

We had been to Bunaken before but stayed elsewhere - full this time - so we chose Living Colours as recommended by Black Sands Dive Resort in Lembeh. We were not disappointed. A very slick Finnish-managed dive operation with great guides and instructors (our two friends did a refresher course) which has a friendly bar (check the gin and tonics... More

Divers, this is the place! Good diving, good food and very friendly personnel. We had a baby with us and it was not a problem. Rooms were clean and well equipped. Diving was good and dive masters were professionals.

Maybe the best place for diving in the world! Bunaken island is very beautiful especially under water and it has so many amazing divesites it would be hard to imagine anything more beautiful. Beside the diving, we also liked the atmosphere of the resort. The dive instructors were very professional yet laid back, and also the rest of the staff... More

We stayed for 4 nights here for some fun diving and snorkelling, and the place delivers! The bungalows are spacious & stylish with full western amenities including big terraces with hammocks and other furniture, hot water showers and cold water dispensers in the room. Trust me, you'll learn to love these. The bungalows are situated high on a hill above... More
