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.

This was my second time visiting the Living Colours and I had a blast again. Good food, friendly and helpful staff, terrific views from the bungalows, and most importantly really great diving. I did my Advanced Open Water while I was there. My instructor was very qualified and the group sizes were small (usually it was just the two of... More

Only nice thing was diving. Otherwise disappointing resort. Staff was arrogant, owner Mia also quite rude. Cottages were dirty with broken, sticky furnitures which were filled with small animals. Mosquito net was full of dead insects - repulsive. Toilet floor never scrubbed properly - quite revolted. Price - quite high comparing to what you get. The beach was like a... More

Living Colours resort has a great location near many of the Bunaken dive spots and there are great views from the level of the accommodation further up the hill. I live in Jakarta so I am mainly looking for dive locations with direct flights - this is one of them in the sense that you fly directly to Manado and... More

I visited Living Colours for the first time 2009 and fell in love with the place immediately. Diving is very well-organized and the guides are extremely good in spotting things. Rental gear is good quality, one of the best I’ve seen in several dive resorts I’ve visited around the world. The beautiful reefs still astonish me time after time, and... More

Dive equipment and guides: Very good Food: OK, but really missed the opportunity to order (buy) egg. pancakes, a shake or some fresh fruit. It was possible to have semi-dry biscuits and overripe bananas. Accommodation: The immediate impression upon arrival was quite... More

We just returned from a combined trip to Bunaken and Raja Ampat. This included our third stay in the Living Colours Dive Resort on Bunaken Island. As always we enjoyed seeing all our friends and diving in the wonderful reefs of the Bunaken National Park. The stay at LC was nice and enjoyable. The bungalows are comfortable and still well...

Thank you Jaska, Mia, Ali and Heini ...and whole smiling staff of the Living Colours dive resort. This was our fifth time and we are already looking forward to visit you again.
