Lovely stay at Bunaken Cha Cha although it's not for everyone. The owners, Raf and Reiko, are extremely attentive to guests, and you can sense the pride they have in Cha Cha. It's clearly the result of a lot of hard work and love. Raf is straight-talking and never short of a joke (appropriate or otherwise!). The discussions and debates... More

This was probably THE most relaxing family holiday we have ever had! From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home by Raf and his friendly team. As first time snorkelers, we were blown away by the profusion of sea life on the house reef, but it only got better as we also visited nearby reefs where... More

Well, what a gem of resort. We stayed here for two weeks from the 6th June and had a fantastic time. Had the beach view bungalow with an amazing view right onto the water, lovely private balcony and huge bathroom with air conditioning, fan and more than enough power points for charging devices. WiFi is available in the rooms and... More

I keep going back to Cha Cha year after year. Raf and Reiko are great hosts and the place has its own charm and peacefulness that I treasure the most. Diving in the morning, read a book on the beach or veranda in the afternoon, finish the day with a wonderful dinner and a laugh over a good glass of... More

It has been 5 whole months since I left Bunaken. Back to the punishing rat race which significantly delayed my submission of this review. But not a day goes by over the past 5 months without my thoughts going back to the wonderfully serene 20 days I spent at the Bunaken Chacha resort until my departure in mid Jan-2016. Where... More

This is really a very special place that offers the chance to experience nature at its finest and be pampered at the same time. I can only echo all the other comments about the reefs - truly magical to see literally thousands of fish, numerous turtles, and other amazing marine life against the back-drop of incredibly diverse and colorful corals....

My wife and I chose Bunaken Cha Cha Nature Resort because this resort has AC and also its ease of arriving there. Many of the other resorts which are on "island" locations are power starved and do not have sufficient generator capacity to fund AC units all day. To arrive there, we flew into Manado and then an easy 30... More

In March this year I spent 6 nights at Cha Cha Resort. It was low season so my dive buddy and I had the place pretty much to ourselves. We were lucky with the weather and the diving was superb especially the coral which seems to be very well protected in the Bunaken national marine park. I stayed in cottage... More

It's the fourth time I've been here at Cha Cha nature resort during the past 8 years and all things considered it will not be the last time. I was a bit afraid that many things had changed here because I wanted Cha Cha to be what it was when i came here the first time: a tranquil resort away... More
