We stayed here (2 adults, 2 pre-teen kids) for a few days on a recommendation of friends of ours. The resort is on a small much more quiet syster island of Bunaken but within the national park. We had friendly staff, big fresh rooms, very good dive guides and excellent food. Planning to go back in coming March, bringing along... More

When you stay in a friendly resort, managed by inspiring and interesting people, helping you to discover this island, knowing the names of each bird or fish, sleeping with the sound of the waves, showering with salty water, I can tell you: you don't want to leave. Two days on Onong Siladen were enough to be immediately homesick while back... More

I spent two perfect weeks in the Onong resort in September. If you look for a super relaxing quiet peaceful scuba diving vacation, this is your place to go. Rooms basic but with AC, mini bar and very clean, the beds are very comfortable, and who needs a hot shower every day anyway in that hot summer climate, right? Tip:... More

Superb dive location, basic but clean rooms, friendly staff and professional guides, good food. In short - high value for money in the middle of Bunaken National Park, one of the best dive spots in the world.

Beautiful beach and rooms. Unbelieveable clean water, suitable for diving and snorkeling. It is a wonderful place for divers as well as kids. Very friendly staff, and very professional diving masters.

The set-up with two resorts is very convenient + it offers you the possibility to stay and dive at both places, took our sandals off and... More

While nobody would book on such a remote island without being aware of the relative distance to action, this is why the people coming here are almost exclusively divers. With Indonesia being famous for the macro diving, it is also mostly experienced divers choosing Onong (and Mapia, btw). While rooms are spaceous, clean and comfortable, with aircon and nice views,...

When my hubby and I 1st reached there, we were kind of facsinated by the charming bungalows and its environment. Each glass bungalow is quite far part. No issue with privacy as you can always draw the curtains. As the bungalow does not come with aircon, it is not fully enclosed (a gap between the wall & rooftop) so that... More

Unforgettable holiday at Onong Resort. It was my first time in Indonesia and Bunaken as well and it was just outstanding. The diving was amazing, beautiful coral reef in every dive site. Despite it rained almost every day as I went during the rainy season, the visibility was perfect. The boat crew and the dive guides were very professional and... More
