I arrived to a welcoming smile at the airport to transfer me to the boat. From the moment I arrived to the day I had to unfortunately depart I really had a truly memorable holiday here. Mia was fantastic with re-scheduling dates for me and answering any queries via email promptly. The bungalow's themselves are very comfortable and have all... More

Our family of five finished our scuba certification here in July 2016. Steven and Annika could not have been more patient and helpful, very professional but relaxed. The diving is incredible, and the dive operation is professional and well equipped. The resort is rustic comfort; no air conditioning and the bungalows are not sealed, so there is the occasional bug,... More

We are a Danish family travelling with children (11 to 17 years) and spend five days at living colours for diving. The dive spots are out standing with great wall dives. Fish and corals more beautiful than you can imagine. The dive instructors are friendly and professional and the equipment and boats were top standards. On top of that comes... More

I spent with my wife 9 days at Living Colours for diving and relaxing. Reefs of Bunaken National Park are still one of our favorite dive sites we've ever dived. Corals and fish are colorful and friendly dive guides find small creatures that I can barely see without my reading glasses. Diving with Living Colours is very easy: You just... More

Another DI, Annika, was also very caring and helpful on board the boat too. From the moment I liaised with Mia to the point of arrival, everything was a breeze, no hiccup at... More

Our week at Living Colours Dive Resort was very good. The staff was good, all three meals of good quality. The diving and snorkeling was amazing. The dive masters helped really well and the marine life is so rich and divers at the various spots at the various island. I really recommend it when you want to relax.

Almost 2 years since of last time, the staff has changed a bit but the Scandinavian punctuality and atmosphere keeps remaining the same. Just ask and you will get relieve to dive stress (up to 4 dives per day) or just hammoc time without pressure if needed. It's very cozy and comfortable when you know that everything is in order...

The underwater life in Bunaken is magnificent. Being able to dive & snorkel to see its beautiful underwater life was probably one the best experiences in my life. As far as the resort, the staff were friendly & the food was always freshly cooked. Unfortunately the room wasn't very clean. They could do some cleanliness standard improvement. I would give...
