Stayed at Bunaken Island Resort for 5 days and loved every part of it: the traditional Minahasa-style bungalows with ocean-views, the wonderful food, the rain showers, the friendly staff and Martijn, the super-helpful Dutch manager. After having travelled through Sulawesi this was our last stop. We were able to completely unwind and relax, which was too easy with a cold... More

The villas we stayed in were full of rustic feel, giving us the feeling of being marooned on an island, albeit in a very positive way! The island itself is beaauutifuuullll; clear waters, marvellous reef walls.... amazing diving experience. Well, nothing beats having a wonderful host Evelyn, coupled with friendly and humorous staff. Thanks to all for making our stay... More

Knowing and working in hotel industrie you always look for something different or your expectation are different than others... I loved to stay there and really relaxed during my trip. The staff are warm and welcoming like a family who take care each other.... More

Fantastic food! I could eat those corn fritters for breakfast lunch and dinner, everyday! Eveline was a lovely host. Be aware, this is not a hotel. It's a small island; power and water pressure during the day may be sketchy. Regardless, who needs power when you are surrounded by the most amazing diving and snorkeling in the world? There was...

My family had a great time scuba diving, snorkeling, just chilling out and enjoying yummy meals with no distraction from tv or phone calls. Our host, Evelyn, was a fun and friendly host, Sven was a very skillful dive instructor and guide, the locals were ever willing to bring us anywhere we wanted to go. We encountered hundreds of dolphins... More

I truly loved staying in this resort for 5 nights surrounded by beautiful scenery, flowers, greens, and the best of all was the great seafood provided for every lunch and dinner. You can arrange the diving tour here and they are very professional to take you around the best corals in the island. Also, you MUST do the Dolphin diving... More

Spent 4 nights here recently and loved it. Fantastic views over the water to the volcano Manado Tua. Food was terrific, plentiful, varied, fresh and delicious. Evaline is an amazing host who makes you feel welcome and accommodates your needs. Diving is easy enough to do with boats leaving from the beach. Sven comes in the evening to inform you... More

I Booked here (prepaid) a few months ago via Agoda when I was researching our dive trip to Bunaken. I didn't actually end up staying here. We have kids and we ended up choosing somewhere that had a pool. Anyway somehow I had missed canceling this booking, I truly thought I had cancelled it. I arrived to Bunaken Saturday and... More
