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 attentive at all times. About the resort, I completely loved it. I got a great room right in the beach front, few steps away from the water, with astonishing sea views. I felt really comfortable and slept in it deliciously well. It is true that you won't find here the most comfortable mattresses in the world and the bed frames crack a bit, but after a very satisfying diving day you won't notice and will just crash on it.The staff of the resort were extremely friendly, and did their best at any time to help us feel home. The food was just delicious everyday, plenty, healthy and well balanced, and lunch time and dinner time was really enjoyable with the other guests and the manager himself. The island is peaceful and quiet which I found about perfect to disconnect instantaneously from routine, relax doing some reading, walking around a bit or just staring and seeing a school of dolphins passing by! I personally would never bring a tv here, it would be such a waste of time watching it. This tiny island is just paradise, in my view, and find it admirable to be able to set up a resort there, keeping at the same time the magic feeling of being alone in the world there. Besides, Indonesian people are the nicest I've ever met traveling in south east asia. The local islanders were always smiling at me, specially the children who were adorable, but above all they were undoubtedly respectful to the tourists at Onong. I had a great experience in my short visit to Siladen island, and I look forward to visiting again as soon as possible and would strongly recommend it to any diver looking for a paradise.
