Booking here was a breeze, a couple of emails and no deposit required. Was met at the airport (with a nice cold drink) then the transfer to the resort was less than two hours. The resort was great - very friendly staff, clean and on a really good part of the reef. I was in a single room which was... More

This resort was recommended to us by our travel agent and for a good reason. After only a day the staff already felt like family and the diving proved to be excellent. Small groups on our boat (max 6) and an awesome reef right in front of the resort.

we travelled with another couple for 4 days of diving and loved everything, from the very friendly staff to the lovely rooms (we had garden cottages with AC), fantastic meals and the main reason for our trip - the diving. The diving is by far the best we've ever experienced. The dive team were very experienced and great at spotting... More

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

We have spent 5 fabulous days in Bunaken Village resorts. No only the location and resort area reminded us about the existence of the Paradise on the Earth. 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
