We really enjoyed ourselves while there. The staff was great, the food reasonably good, and the diving really wonderful. Props to Hanna, the visiting pastry chef from Finland who comes every year to teach the staff new recipes... Wow!

Stayed at the hotel for 7 nights and we enjoyed every minute. It's a cozy, well kept, small resort with a Balinese touch. The room was clean, got a nice bathroom, the beds were good. At night rather hot, but you have the possibility to have aircon, if you pay extra. The food is great, with enough to choice from... More

My husband and I wanted a place that was not just focused on diving as we wanted a relaxing holiday. The idea that The Village Bunaken had a spa and the latest feedback/reviews were good appealed to us. We stayed for 7 nights, and since it was full-board, we had breakfast, lunch and dinner there. To me the food was... More

The Village is busy, and rightly so. The ten bungalows it consists of are spacy with enough room to store everything. Good bed, nice shower, wonderful balcony with a hammock: what more could you need? Much has been said here about the food: we loved it. We stayed a week with different dishes every day. Fish as a main course... More

Service of very friendly management and the staff had a lot of personal touch. We really felt like being in Paradise. Rooms were excellent and very well maintained, swimming pool and the... More

We stayed here last year in October for 10 days. I know... it took us a while to write this review :-) Where do I start: I can't fault this resort anywhere. The chalets were modern and very clean. The food was amazing. The head chef has worked in Europe before, and you can taste it!!! All the staff, from... More
