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

We stayed at Bunaken Island Dive resort in September 2013 for five days after traveling through several parts of Indonesia. The purpose for our visit was to relax for the last five days of our trip and to explore the underwater world. Bunaken Island Dive resort exceeded all our expectations for both purposes! First of all, the resort is marvelously... More

The food was delicious and diversified with a lot of fresh fish, and fresh fruits for desert. The breakfast is european with home made bread... More

Bunaken Island Resort is a very special place to stay. Cute, spacious bungalows adorn the hill side with wonderful balconies. They are air-conditioned & each have good bathrooms attached. Power is conserved daily & shuts down in the afternoon which is fine. Lie on a hammock in the afternoon breeze if you find time to steal yourself away from the... More

Very overpriced, Terrible price to quality ratio The dutch owner is there only 6 weeks per year and has no control over his local staff The beach is dirty, the rooms not made, backpacker style but luxury hotel prices. No electricity during the day (the hottest time), no running water either. A very disappointing place on the whole, especially compared... More

Charming resort with nice traditional bungalows and pretty gardens. Excellent location right in the middle of one of the world's best diving and snorkelling areas (Bunaken Marine National Park) with intact and overwhelming coral reef life. Very good and professional PADI dive center connected with it (Panorama Dive Center). The staff are VERY obliging and the food excellent Indonesian home-style... More

Very authentic atmosphere, with the resort somewhat loosely integrated into the surrounding "kampung", and local people playing a decisive role in the overall organization. Diving was beyond words, paradise underwater. Our beachfront bungalow was elegant (beautiful furniture) and confortable. Food healthy (no fresh juices, though) and rather varied (luckily hardly any Western dishes!).
