Nice and family friendly small resort with some very friendly hosts. Indeed a relaxing place with lots of good "karma" especially because of the friendly hosts (you eat all the meas together with them). Good snorkeling opportunities very close.

A haven of peace! Rooms were clean and spacious and offering a wonderful view! The owners were friendly. The staff were very very helpful, i went snorkeling, I am 69 years old and I don't know how to swim. They took me by the hand so I could enjoy the snorkeling trip and admire the wonders of underwater. I spent... More

This resort have good reviews and it was one of the reason we selected it. We thus expected great, but we got even better ! The owners, Raf and Riko, a lovely Irish-Italian/Japanese couple, have made a little paradise in Bunaken. Some people just know how to make things right. We had a wonderful one week stay there. Bungalows were... More

On leaving Cha Cha, after spending 4 nights, we (my wife, 25 year old daughter and I) discussed what we look for in an island holiday. Answer - great snorkelling from a dive boat or off shore, comfortable and clean accommodation with a great bed, a balcony with lovely ocean views, friendly staff and terrific (and varied) food.

What an amazing place! We – a family of four with two teenage sons - spent 5 days at Cha Cha which didn’t seem enough. The rooms/bungalows are fantastic, clean and spacious with great views. You feel very welcome – almost as in a private home with meals taken with the owners/hosts Irish/Italian Raf and his Japanese wife Reiko. So... More

“Amazing place. Raf, the owner, and his wife Reiko are simply fantastic! It seems to be in a big little family. Friendly people, good vibes, amazing nature. Perfect location to enjoy your journey. Total relax and lots of smiles. We suggest definitely to spend some time in Cha Cha Nature. Donato & Antonella”

We have stayed a week in the Bunaken Cha Cha in one of the newly built ocean front villas. The accommodation is very new and spacious whereas the rest of the resort is older. The concept of the resort is to have all meals together with the other guests and the very friendly owners - which allows to connect easily... More

We just spent 4 nights at the Cha Cha. First, Bunaken and its environs pleasantly surprised us. We had heard that there was a lot of litter but we saw little to no sign of that. The snorkelling along the coral wall was amazing with swarms of different species of fish surrounding us. The coral was beautiful too. The Cha... More
