It was at the end of july 2012 that I went to Bunaken for the first time for my PADI Divemaster Course and I meet Roberto, instructor and owner at Raja Laut. And the following days of my training were amazing.
I spent more than 30 days diving and enjoying the wonderful reef and world famous walls of Bunaken, and after hard work I got my certification.
Roberto is an experienced instructor, he loves diving and takes care of everything, from teaching to equipment maintenance with outmost care and precision.
The diving center is fine and gear is well maintained, from masks to compressor. At Raja Laut there are two boats for diving, brand new alluminium tanks and always enough local guide to supervise multiple groups of divers never bigger than 3 or 4 people at time to ensure safety and diving pleasure.
The restaurant is perfect: indonesian food is tasty and sometime you can try very good italian pasta in the heart of Sulawesi. Not bad! Especially for hungry divers...
In the middle of luxury vegetation garden there are four wooden bungalows, spacious and well furnished, with nice balcony facing the the ocean and the sunrise. Bathroom, closet for clothes, ceiling fan and warm water with a comfortable hammock on the balcony are perfect for a deserved relax.
Raja Laut is really a good place to stay. I really liked so I decided to come back again. After getting my PADI Instructor certification I went again to Bunaken, in december 2012 and january 2013, this time together with my mother. Of course for diving, but also for relaxing and enjoying the location. Wonderful the dives during Christmas Day!
Roberto is always friendly and available. Do you have a problem? He does the impossible to help you. He organizes your transfer from the airport to the island and takes care of any kind of emergency. You can use his laptop if you need to stay in contact with the rest of the world and he can carry you around the island by motorbike.
By the way, Raja Laut is a very nice and familiar place where to spend your time for diving and relaxing in Bunaken and prices are OK! Higly recommended !!!!
