I've stayed here twice. It was in 2013 and I came back early 2014. Bunaken is a very small island and it is very laid back so you can't expect a lot from it. I recommend to do more research on the island it self before coming as it can be boring for the non adventurous travellers. It is also... More

The complex has 10 bungalows in total. Meals are included in the room and are very nice. You need to share table with other people, that's nice if you want to get in contact with others. The staff is very nice and helpfull. They can help you arrange transport if you want to travel to Tangkoko afterwards for example. Rooms... More

Hotels in the North of Sulawesi cost more than in the other parts of Indonesia; it's more touristic. In Bunaken you have a lot of mid range resorts, and Bunaken Beach Resort is one of them. The price/quality ratio is good. The location is at the beach. It's not a big white beach, but a small one. You can't really... More

We booked a bungalow (sea-side) in the resort, nice and clean, with "normal" shower even if the tap water is salted... (as everywhere on the island). Nice private patio on the beach, with long-chair. You can go snorkeling for hours from the beach, or go with the boat to other places around the island. Good food (even almost the same... More

only was able to stay 2 nights in the middle of a business trip. Gertrude and her team are outstanding. From the welcome to departure they went out of their way to make us comfortable and welcome.

Just stayed at Bunaken Beach Resort for 11 nights and my partner and I had a great time. The resort is clean and simple, set on the beach and very close to the best dive sites of the area. Lots of trees and greenery around the resort. Rooms are basic but clean. Food was excellent with plenty of variety. Diving... More
