A simple but cosy dive resort on a small island amidst the marvellous marine seapark Bunaken Island. We experienced wonderful dives with a huge biodiversity of the reefworld. Since we were only a few guests, we felt like a family together and had interesting talks together at the shared dinner. The experienced dive guides showed us many big and small beauties of the under water world.
We missed a bit a nice beach. Because of the often strong and changing currents at the housereef, we never went snorkeling. The rented diving equipment and the diving boat was well cared for but also well used and could do with an upgrade (the new boat ist supposed to come in December).
The bungalows are scattered among a jungle garden, well hidden and some with a little view to the sea, luckily we had a seaview bungalow. We loved the veranda and the hammock. The bedroom ist simple but cosy, however, not very clean. The half open bathroom was reasonably clean, but the facilities like shower and tap were not in the best state, so we mostly used the mandi, to pour water over our perspirating bodies. Since they have to get the fresh water from the mainland, it is the best way to refrain from ample showers.
Next to the resort is the village, it is worthwhile, to stroll through. However, on the weekend there were some weddings going on, with extremely loud music and strong beats all night through.
The Indonesioan food was well done and spicy. The staff is very friendly but doesn't speak well English. Overall, we spent a lovely diving week there. If you don't expect a lot of mod cons, you will enjoy it very much there.
