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.

The resort consists at present of 3 spacious, fully equipped and nicely decorated bungalows, set within mangrove trees, away from the crowd. The local village Alung Banua is a 15 mintues' walk away.
