Every once in a while you come across a place where you feel at home the moment you get your backpack off and RajaLaut is a shining example of one of those places. RajaLaut perfectly fits what one would imagine as a laid back place. Our 5 days was an eat - dive - eat - dive - lay-back. The... More

I spent a lovely 7 days at the Raja Laut Dive resort in Jan 2015 as a solo traveller.  This is a resort exclusively catering for divers.  The dives were well planned and the dive masters take great effort to show you all the tiny wonderful creatures living under the water.  The dive team are v helpful and you are...

You will easily find on RL website all the info you are looking for about facilities and rates. What I want to report here is about the great and... More

Raja Laut is an extremely friendly and laid-back dive resort on Bunaken island. In my opinion its major draw is the atmosphere, really relaxing and warm. On the other side this is also high quality place, with accomodation in very nice wooden bungalows with big verandas (hammocks!), partially open-air bathrooms, set in a garden and overlooking the bay. The food... More

We stayed at Raja Laut for five full days in November and enjoyed every minute. Amadeo and Roberto are lovely hosts, very friendly, helpful and humorous. Atmosphere around the beautiful resort located directly at the coastline is warm and welcoming. We enjoyed the food, however a couple more fresh veggies from time to time could've been nice. Accommodation (deluxe pavillon)... More

Just came back from Raja Laut for my PADI certification.. Amedeo and Olien were wonderful hosts, I was travelling solo but the environment was comfortable and made me feel like I was home. As the meal was served, everyone sits together on one long table, so you get to meet with other divers. Not the mention the wonderful meal we... More

We stayed at Raja Laut for 5 nights in the end October. They were wonderful days of very well-organized diving, relaxed and friendly atmosphere and very good cousine. The resort has 4 bungalows with veranda, all wooden and nicely decorated. We had serious fights over the hammock on our veranda - the best place to rest after diving! The resort... More

We stayed a few days at raja laut to pass our open water PADI, the diving was mind blowing, and Roberto is a very good and organized teacher - made us feel safe right away even though we had never dived before. one night he did a presentation about corals which we appreciated. Also very important, the food is delicious... More
