There are a few resorts/ hotels in the Bunaken Island, which is supposed to be one of the best dive sites in the EAST. Most of the resorts/hotels are in very bad condition and charge high prices. Cicak Senang is run by an European lady. It has only eight bungalows, which are tastefully furnished and located. The resort is situated right in front of the beach; when it is high tide, one can enjoy the cool sea breeze with calming sound of the waves over a cool beer, HEAVENLY!!! To travel to Cicak Senang, one has to travel from MANADO mainland by boat. There are private speed boat, but the price is very high. The public boat fare is very reasonable, but have limited time schedule and stop only at the main port of Bunaken Island. However, there are quite a few motor bike around and can take one to Cicak Senang at reasonable price.Bon Voyage!
