Recently stayed at The Village Bunaken and found it to be a great experience. Honestly, from the moment we landed until the moment we were dropped off at the airport, we didnt have to think about a thing. The resort took care of every detail and just left me to relax and enjoy my time. All meals were included and... More

We stayed four days and enjoyed the stay. We joined the dive boat to snorkel on the village side of the island but the reef in front of the resort is teeming with fish and extremely healthy coral. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Lunch and dinner were healthy, lots of vegetables and options for protein, with apples and... More

The Village is a beautiful little family boutique dive lodge. Very personal service, diving logistics completely taken care of, cosy dining area that encourages you to mix with other guests and staff, nice clean rustic rooms, and a very tranquil setting. All at a reasonable price, so very good value. The diving is incredible. As good as any wall diving... More

The biggest regular sightings are turtles rather than big fish schools or lots of sharks etc. Resort had great food, bungalows very clean, we needed air con as came straight from UK ...All... More

I don't usually post reviews because generally the experience is just an OK one. However, what we experienced at The Village and all the staff was worthy of me giving my feedback. Right from the first minute you get on the boat to the island there is a warm friendly feeling that comes across. Then once you land the warm... More

Location: Placed with the best house reef on the island in front of sandy beach. Sunset can be watched from the resort while drinking (free) morning coffee. Only 20 mins walk from a small village with local kiosks, impressive church and mosque. Resort: Beautifully designed with lovely restaurant and spa. The set-up reminds you of a small village (hence the... More

We stayed here with two families (4 adults, 4 children) from Holland. It's a very nice place, very good management and staff, great snorkeling, relaxing, diving and the food is very, very good. We are now certified dive masters thanks to our instructor, named after the famous Dutch writer Edouard Douwes Dekker (Multatuli) and criticaster of Dutch influence in Indonesia,... More

Very nice place! We stayed here with two adults and a 19 month old toddler. The diving around Bunaken island is sublime, and the dive staff on the resort is very helpful and professional. They also organized two snorkeling trips to nearby Siladen island, which is highly rcommended. The food, it is a full board resort, is great, especially lunch... More
