Bunaken Sea Garden resort resides in a very secluded place in southern Bunaken (if I’m not wrong). Just like most resort in Bunaken, Bunaken Sea Garden is also a beachfront resort. When I arrived at the resort I didn’t realize that the location of this resort since its beach is completely covered with trees. Very nice location and really great for escaping from urban life.
In my opinion, this resort is actually a budget resort compared to the other resort nearby. The facilities provided also limited. They have standard and deluxe room, both are only with fan, electricity off during the day, a hammock, and no hot water (just so you know). The difference between the two is deluxe room is more spacious than the standard and the standard room is located near the street so you will hear some kind of noise at certain time. But, I’m completely fine with the room, no complaints.
They have a quite spacious field in the middle of the resort, we can use it for playing football, badminton, volleyball and others. They also have a gazebo right in front of the beach, you can use it to enjoy the day, or taking a nap perhaps.
They also provide a fun dive package for diver, with a very competitive price. As I heard, they’re still completing their dive shop and improving into a proper dive shop. But as I see, they give a very good dive service to me. They will charge €48 for a two-morning dives or €26 for 1 morning dive. The equipment rental is €2 per day which they claimed will be fully donated for charity. Diving and donating, isn’t that lovely?
If you’re not into diving, you could do snorkeling right in front the resort. Since there is a beautiful dive spot right in front the resort. You just can’t miss it.
They provided full meal accommodation, breakfast, lunch, dinner and unlimited tea and coffee. They served a very nice and delightful meal. You should really try their “gohu” (a raw tuna served with Manadonese style), it was amazing. Two thumbs up for the meal.
They also provided airport transfer with a very competitive price, and transfer to public boat.
Overall, I really love my stay in Bunaken Sea Garden. The staff are very nice, Ms. Sonya herself also a very helpful person. Thanks again for your hospitality Ms. Sonya. I certainly will stay in your place again soon.
