Bunaken Village Resort is on Bunaken Island just off from Manado in North Sulawesi. We went as a family of four adults and stayed in one of the two bedroom bungalows. As innkeepers ourselves, we were pleasantly surprised at how well maintained the place is. It turned out to be vary nice to have a swimming pool to relax in after a morning of diving. While the resort does offer it, I was surprised to be very comfortable without air conditioning.
With regard to diving, we had a fabulous time. The dive guides were personable, and extremely helpful. We have been to several places in the Caribbean, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and this was the best diving we have encountered. The corrals are healthy and thriving and there are all kinds of interesting critters. Don't miss taking a trip over to Banka island, the soft corrals were extraordinary.
