I was booked originally only six nights at Living Colours but ended up staying eleven. The bungalows are clean and spacey and the resort premises are just beautiful. The diving is absolutely world class as the reefs are in excellent condition and full of all kinds of marine life. The accommodation includes all the meals which are local style and delicious. There's even a Finnish sauna which was just finished when I was there. It's very nice to go to sauna after three dives :) And the Safety Stop bar is a must after the day's dives.
I think the resort is very eco-aware: no plastic bottles or bags are used and water and electricity is conserved. Also everybody was very careful not to destroy corals or harass any marine life.
The local dive guides were very friendly, experienced and helpful and the groups were kept small. The boats are fast and most of the numerous dive sites are located within 10-20 minutes boat trip. The shop equipment is probably the best I have had the pleasure to rent.
Bunaken island and this resort is however mainly suited for divers - I would not recommend it for non-divers since there very little to on the island do if one doesn't dive.
