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

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 did my rescue & divemaster courses with Living Colours. Everything works brilliantly! Courses, diving, food, facilities, divesites.. Top quality! Instructors Heini and Ali are amongst the best pros i've ever met and quality of teaching is excellent. I'm really, really pleased to have chosen to do my courses with LC. Owners, they made my holiday easy from the beginning... 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
