Siladen is a great island, very quiet. Sarah is a great host, very friendly, knowledgeable (she works with a great diving company) and always there to help. The food is really delicious, there was not a meal that wasn t good. I fully recommend.

This small pretty resort lies on an island conveniently close to Manado city (and the airport). Right off the beach in front of the bungalows is a beautiful and healthy coral reef with an impressive 1km drop off! I've been diving and snorkeling in many places in the world and I can tell you; this is very good!! The bungalows... More

My wife and I came back again to Bobocha Siladen, where we stood four years ago. Not only as a diving and snorkeling area but especially because of the cultivated great hospitality of Sarah and her team at Bobocha. Fresh amazing food, profound conversation and information about Indonesia but also all other topics and interesting other guests made our stay... More

After a two week stay on Bunaken I emailed Sarah to ask if she had availability. She responded immediately and I was fortunate enough to be able to stay at Bobocha for a week. The bungalow I stayed for a few nights was one of the older ones and was totally OK, but they are going to be replaced by... More

Fabulous! We travelled as a family of 4 (mum dad and 2 boys 7 & 9 yo) and we stayed for 8 nights at Bobocha. It felt like staying at a friend's place rather than an hotel or resort, and that's a big + for us. We loved being on that small island, and the magnificent scenery around us, the... More

for once return to the simplicity, no hot water, no tv, no aircon at day time... a natural sandy beach in front of your bungalow, unspoiled water... and last but not least romantic meals from breakfast to dinner under the trees. What else ? very friendly staff and Sarah the owner is doing everything for you... very relaxing holidays !

Spent our last 3 nights of our holiday in Siladen and it was truly worth it. We stayed in one of the new bungalows which was well designed with a lockable luggage room, so the room can be aired during the day. The room is beautiful however I didn't like the ceiling fan. Because it's a 4poster bed you don't... More

Was I really a visitor? Felt like I was visiting old friends! Bobocha specialises in old fashioned, family style hospitality. Real life disappears and Island life with Sarah and her extended family (staff are more like family members) takes over. Leave your watch and "devices" behind and allow the sparkling clear waters, white sands and leafy trees lull you to... More

We started our honeymoon at Bobocha Cottages and it couldn't have been any better! The location is awesome and we are just missing words to describe the snorkeling in the reef. But what makes this place even more special is the great hospitality and service by Sarah and her staff. The food is based on what the island and the... More
