We enjoyed twelve absolutely lovely days at Minahasa Lagoon. The resort's staff as well as the dive team of ECO Diver did an extraordinary job to make us feel like little kings. Thanks again to each and everyone there!!!

It had a large main room with a huge bed, a second small room with bunk beds, and a huge bathroom area, which had a half in-half open shower... More

Had a great time diving with Ecodivers at Minahasa. The dive crew was outstanding and the diving was fantastic. Combination of Wall dives and muck diving. Service was excellent and the staff was very friendly. I'll return someday.

We regret RB86 Paris did not fully enjoy his stay at our Resort with his partner. Manado and Minahasa are for Scuba Divers and both RB86 and his Partner are both not so it was difficult for us. There were 2 Expatriate Managers on duty in addition to local managers. We regret RB86 and his partner cannot identify them or... More

Minahasa Lagoon Resort and diving were out standing. The views from the accommodation were spectacular. The accommodation was excellent and some of the rooms are being refurbished to keep the place looking great. The food was lovely with two menus to choose from for your four course lunch and dinner. We ate so much in the end we opted for... More

The rooms (ours was right on the beach) are spacious and comfortable, and even come with a toothbrushes and toothpaste. The staff, however, are what really make the place so special. Smiling, friendly people who... More

I was greeted nicely upon arrival and shown about the resort. The rooms are quite large with lots of storage. There is good lighting in the room and bathroom. The electrical outlets in... More
