We just stayed for four days with Tom and everything was great! This is the only resort on the north side of Bunaken: a remote retreat in the jungle with mangroves and sea. Each of the 4 huts has everything you need and the rest of the amazing sleep is given by the sounds of the forest and sea. Make... More

This Resort we can say is one of the best we have ever seen. Small in the heart of the mangrooves, the hospatility is unique. The Bungalos are quiete nice with charme, which I have never seen for this price around this area. Clean, in the shadow with an nice interior, this could be the ideal place to relax after... More

Mamaling is outstanding. The service was friendly and efficient. Tom & Rose do a great job of looking after you, in fact all their staff are attentive. Special mention must go to “Ma Al”; her meals were superb. The all-wooden bungalow rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean. I slept very well, thanks in part to the sounds of the waves... More

The location of the resort is very unique. My husband and I have not experienced anything like this is our travels. Black sand and mangrove forest surround the resort, the tide is always changing the environment. The rooms are really well built on stilts, with batik accents, large balcony with hammocks and chairs. We didn't use the mosquito net or... More

Tom, Rose and all the staff are very nice! The place is isolated in the mangrove jungle so you don't have any other resorts as neighbours wich is really nice. The Indonesien food they serve is excellent! The diving is supreme. All in all a very good experience. - Marie and Jonas - Copenhagen, Denmark

Hosts Tom and Rose could not make one feel more welcome. The meals were excellent and with a total of eight guests round one table, it felt more like a family party every night. Beautiful crystal clear water and reefs teeming with marine life. I would be more than happy to recommend it to all my friends. As General McArthur... More

We booked this resort because it was highly recommended by other users here. And well, we didn't got disappointed in any ways! Rose and Tom, the hosts, offer romantic and totally clean chalets situated in pure nature. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. This is not only because of the super-friendly hosts but also because of the staff there. Everybody... More

Although bunaken island takes some effort getting to, the location is definately worth it. Comfortable, secluded rooms tucked away behind a small bay and great meals provided. Some of the very best diving in Indonesia. The sheer colour and diversity of coral and small fish were breathtaking!! always turtles. This is one for the true dive enthusiast.

If you are looking for peace and quiet with brill diving or snorkelling topped off with excellent food then the Mamaling Resort is for you. We stayed at the Mamaling resort on Bunaken in 2013, always worried that going back somewhere as it might not be as good, we needn't have worried as The Mamaling just gets better if that's... More
