Bunaken Kuskus Resort is a wonderful place to stay. Bungalows are big, charming and very clean. The staff is most friendly, providing excellent service with a smile. And the food!!!! It's so good, abundant and varied.

Kuskus Resort was a great place to stay on Bunaken Island- the staff and facilities were nice and the overall experience was very relaxing. I stayed in Kuskus for 5 nights while doing my PADI Open Water course nearby, as the price was better here than at the surrounding dive resorts. The rooms are basic but comfortable, beds with mosquito... More

Stayed here for 6 nights and went on 8 dives. If you arrive from the public boat, it's about a 15-20 minute walk heading north, there is a big "Kuskus resort" banner as you pass it, impossible to miss. I opted for the cheapest "bamboo" bungalow which offered a nice bed with mosquito net, basic bathroom facilities, 2x towels, and... More

Bunaken Kuskus is a small gem in Bunaken Island, perfect hideout place to relax and enjoy diving, snorkeling or even just wandering around and then singing with the friendly staff at night. Yes, the staff are incredibly helpful and welcoming. The accommodation is basic but nice, and is very similar to all the other accommodation on the island. The food... More
