We were not sure quite what to expect as our last diving holiday had been at Six Senses in Koh Samui, on a rather different budget! For Euros 40 pppn, dinner bed breakfast and lunch, we were delighted with the value of Raja Laut: our 'superior' chalet was clean and boasted a 4-poster bed, had an outdoor shower, and a lovely balcony, complete with hammock. A great place to idle away an afternoon reading if not diving. Talking of diving - we found this well- organised and the boats were good, equipment modern (although we brought our own). Getting away early meant that we avoided the rush of the day boats form Manado - we were there the busiest week of the year; and then we could choose a quiet spot for the second dive. Bunaken boasts wall dives as its speciality as well as loads of turtles, nudibranchs and other critters. Thanks to sharp-eyes Onong we were able to see all sorts of things we would otherwise have missed. Roberto and Amedeo run a tight ship, meals are taken communally which I enjoyed, and the food is good, given the difficulty of getting fresh stuff from the mainland. They even make their own bread and a mean Italian pizza - as you would expect in a resort run by Italians! We hope to visit when they open their second resort next year!
