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

Came here to see the coral and do some wall dives. The staff (Mia, Al, Heini) were extremely helpful, attentive, and very professional - and fun. The buffet always had a veggie option and the Safety Stop bar always a cold beer. The facilities are rustic but that only adds to the experience. Come to see some amazing sealife and... More

I had to completely change gears and perspective when moving from the Kungkungan Bay Resort in Lembeh to Living Colours in Bunaken. In an odd way, I felt like I was transported back to Costa Rica—the mangroves, the jungle, the critters. I truly felt close to nature, but I’m not sure whether I was prepared for the reality of it...

Living Colours says on their web page that they are a five-star dive resort, and I can certainly vouch for that! Everything was top-notch: communication during booking, ride from the airport, welcoming (they pushed beers to our hands), bungalow, food, dive equipment, guides, boats. Only thing left for a tourist to do is to wake up on time for breakfast,... More

I had the pleasure of sharing a bungalow with my husband for about 1,5 weeks at Living Colours. Accommodation: bungalows built in traditional Minahasa style. Located on the hillside in garden-like, well-maintained surroundings, many with good views of the sea. No AC, but our bungalow had two fans and the bedding was light and airy. Gas-powered hot-water shower functioned adequately... More

We were a group of friends and we stayed four nights at Living Colours. The diving are breathtaking, the island are surrounded by corals so there are plenty of great diving spots, you will not swim into or crash with big groups of other divers because the island offer good diving all around. There is some muck diving spots but... More

I stayed 9 days in Living Colours in August. Diving in Bunaken is terrific and all dive sites are located near the diveresort. Diving boats are in good shape and big enough. Diving equipment are great quality. Diving in Bunaken National Marine Park is best i've ever tried. Accommodation is good also. Nice bungalows with enough space and large balcony... More

We tried two places at Bunaken. Living colours Dive Resort fully lived up to their website. We (two families - all together 11 persons) had a great time here. Very good diving in the area - and always nice to get a Bintang after the dives. Unfortunately we didn't see any Dugongs.
