OK, now imagine this:
“You just wake up from a peaceful night sleep, get out of bed and step out on your very own veranda overlooking a peaceful sea and Manado Tua (a sleeping volcano set in a turquoise/blue sea).
You wash-up and walk down the graceful hillside to the restaurant veranda for your breakfast while looking at incomparable scenery.
After breakfast, you walk down to the embarcadero, step onto your private boat, and are taken to your dive site (one of many).
Your DM briefs you through your first dive and your over in a immense, tranquil blue universe filled with fish galore, corals, turtles, sharks and, yes, nudibranchs.
First dive ends too early as you would have wanted it to last forever. You get back onto the boat and whisk away to your second dive site.
On the way, you are handed your restaurant’s lunch menu for you to choose what you would like for lunch and your DM calls in your order.
Second dive coming up: even better than the first.
You end your second dive and the boat brings you back to your hotel for your lunch where you will be served what you have already ordered.
By the time you finished your dessert and had a coffee or tea it is time for your third dive of the day of a peaceful afternoon on the beach to soak up some sun.
After your third dive, its time to head back to the hotel for a beer by the pool while watching the sunset. After that why not indulge in a refreshing massage before dinner?
Hey, get up! You were not dreaming.
Take a shower and start moving because its time to live through what you thought could only be a dream.
This is real. It’s Kima Bajo Resort and Spa and the beautiful Bunaken Marine Park.
I’ve been there twice in two months and can’t wait to go there again and again and again….
Ciao and please think of me in your next dive at Kima Bajo.

Almost forgot, you’ll find all the regular amenities (airport pick-up. Welcome fruits in your room with a welcome note written on a banana leaf, etc….) you would expect to have in Paradise …. Sorry, in a very nice hotel.
