In october I was 10 days in Bunaken village ressort. For us it was the forth time we started a tripp to other destinations in indonesia from Bunaken. We like Bunaken village ressort because from Europe you get by Singapur easy to Manado, where someone from the team waits with a car who brings you to the boat to the... More

There are steep steps down to the bathroom.The cottage can be a little public as the dive boats are loaded by the dive guides in the am's and unloaded in... More

A nice small location with generally lovely staff and great food. Those are the good bits. Be highly recommended for divers. HOWEVER, food is at a fixed time with communal tables so it felt a bit like a school canteen. Food WAS always lovely, mind you, but if you want romance- not the right place. In fact, one or two...

I booked four nights here on their own website, which lists prices. Other reviews had mentioned prompt responses to enquiries but this was not my experience. The responses were not prompt but were obtuse. I was not sure whether they were trying to discourage us because we were not divers or not. I finally telephoned in frustration. Anyway on arrival...

A fantastic stay! We stayed in a seaview cottage (number 3 has the best location) and we enjoyed every minute. Village Bukaken has a friendly family like atmosphere, is easy going, and relaxed, just what you expect from a beachside hotel. Stylishly decorated. The lunch and dinner do taste real awesome -- this was the best food we had for... More

I was in Bunaken island 2 times, and been to this place before it was newly setup! Great place, great views, great staff and of course great diving! The resort is located up on a hill with stunning views, and a great pool. Rooms are fantastic as well.
