Mid October, I spent five nights in an beachview cottage. I asked them to pick me up at the airport, we were first transported by car to Manado city (30 minutes – 14 km) to take their own boat, and I arrived 20 minutes later at the resort. At the end of my stay I went to another resort to... 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...

Bunaken Village We are experienced travelers to South East Asia with children 5 and 7 years and are divers. We have been to North Sulawesi, Bunaken two times before, and are returning to Bunaken Village Resort. We have reviewed it before. Bunaken Village is a pretty and well-designed boutique resort on a tropical island. The food is great and is... More

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.

My boyfriend and I visited Sulawesi for 3 weeks and this was our favourite Hotel! The food is amazing, the rooms clean and spacious and the pool is fantastic. Also you can snorkel right off the Hotel and see amazing see life. We also did quite some diving and was totally worth it.

Such a lovely place and such wonderful staff. We stayed here for one week and didn't want to leave. The reef just outside the hotel is beautiful even though it takes some swimming to get there. Me and my son got our PADI certificate here and our instructor, Arjuna, was the perfect teacher. His calm made us both very secure... More

Very professionally managed by a Dutch/Javanese couple. The dive base is managed by the (true)"Guru" of diving Arjuna who is an amazing teacher. The resort is very well maintained, service and food are very good. 4 stars only because the preparation of the invoice and its positions is not as professional as the rest. You might want to double check... More
