Though more than a review this might sound like a love letter to the resort we cannot but say that this is one of the best places we have ever been to. We contacted Carolin who was amazing at getting back to us and even arranged to pick us up fro the opposite island of Bunaken. From that point onwards... More

Spent a little less than a week in Onong Resort. Choose location for diving Bunaken and Siladen dive spopts. Overall experience was great! a great place on a small island (it takes 1 hour to walk around the island...) This is one of the places where you feel at home from the very first moment.

Small resort, with diving as it's main business. Which makes sence because of the excellent beauty of the Bunaken Marine Park. Diving with the Onong Celebes crew is good, dives are organised and dive masters know what they are doing. It would have been nice if they told a bit more about what you are gonna see, instead of, lots... More

Great location, easy access from manado and good pickup service. Excellent knowledgeable staff and great food portions. Room was okay although my room had a (stinky) septic tank issue that was unresolved for 2 nights. For the price per night this was unacceptable and was resolved only on day of departure. The rest however made up for it so overally... More

Onong is a tiny resort on SIladen Island. It only has about 10 rooms - the four with a sea view are MUCH better. The resort is right on the sea front. There is no beach at high tide and a big rocky wall to protect the rooms. As has been commented before, there are only 6 sun beds for... More

Great feeling on the small paradise island. Not far away from the Mapia resort which is the sister resort from Onong resorts. Both resorts are managed by Celebis resort. The combination holidays are recommendable. Nice beach, nice snorkeling, nice diving in Bunaken national park.

We stayed here for several nights and think it is ideally placed to enjoy the diving around this area. Boat rides are really great as you get to the dive sites which are also extremely beautiful, turtles guaranteed nearly on all of them! The area has a lot of dolphins which is fun to experience as they ride the waves... More

We spent one night at Onong, as a stopover on the way from Ternate back to Bandung. No time to dive, as I was flying later that day, but I joined a dive party and snorkelled over a nearby reef. Coral condition was excellent, fish plenty, and turtles in abundance. The resort is so relaxing, with comfortable spacious bungalows on... More

Onong resort is a place where you leave your shoes at the doorstep and put them back on when you leave. Sand everywhere, even in the restaurant so you can dig in your feet while eating. Diving is magnificent in the National Park, one of the best places I've seen so far. Famous for it's critters you can also see... More

We stayed here (2 adults, 2 pre-teen kids) for a few days on a recommendation of friends of ours. The resort is on a small much more quiet syster island of Bunaken but within the national park. We had friendly staff, big fresh rooms, very good dive guides and excellent food. Planning to go back in coming March, bringing along... More
