If you need a super nice, shady location, the best food in the region and one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world - go to Boboca Siladen. We have spent three nights there, and it was just perfect. Apart from Sarah being a very interesting discussion partner, she knows very well how to please her guests with... More

Although we stayed at Onong's place having a time or our 3 days & 2 nights, we got introduced by the owner of Tanta Moon to Sarah, owner of Bobocha. Staying on the same island 500 meters further down the road and beach of Siladen Bobocha offers a totally different feel of staying in paradise. It's hard to compare Onong's,... More

We were looking for a beach, calm waves, good food and snorkel or swim in the waters. We got just that. Not being good swimmers, or divers, we didn't really want to go to Bunaken and Siladen's Bobocha sounded just right. There's a ferry everyday at around 2 or 3pm that goes to Slidaen costing 30K rupiah or 2.5 USD.... More

It is a very nice place if you know what to expect: It is a very small Island with nothing to do at night. During the day you can swim, relax, snorchel, walk around the Island and that´s it. The Cottages are simple, the power is on only at night time from around 19.00 untill maybe 2 or 3.00 in... More

Top tip: fly to Manado, get a taxi to Bunaken Port, then get a boat over to Siladen and enjoy a taste of paradise! Sarah is the perfect host, and an amazing cook. The beach accommodation is simple but clean, the setting is tranquil and peaceful, and the coral a must-see. We are a couple who enjoyed three nights stay... More

We stayed at Bobocha for 9 nights in December 2012. There are only 4 cottages, just few meters from the beach, I would recommend selecting one of the cottages closest to the shore. The setting and location of the Bobocha is excellent and the house reef is great although the beach is sometimes affected by rubbish coming in from Manado.... More

Absolutely amazing! We have travelled all around asia - but THIS is the place! Sarah is the best host in the world and we really never had such an authentic and tasteful food in indonesia.

Bobocha is the place for a quiet, romantic island holiday with beautiful sunsets, a great house reef, snorkeling with beach access, great food, friendly service, clean rooms, and comfortable beds that have mosquito nets. Spend your days snorkeling at the house reef (you can snorkel around the whole island if you are up for it but only if you are... More

We stayed at Bobocha for 2 nights in June 2013, had some excellent experiences and some minor irritations. The good experiences: - The location and setting of Bobocha on Siladen island is absolutely beautiful. It's private and tranquil but within walking distance to the local village. We really love the fact that we can choose to stay within the cottage... More
