“Onong Eco Resort, Siladen, Sulawesi - Paradise”
Reviewed 7 April 2008

I just spent a lovely week in paradise. Onong Resort is made up of just 6 bungalows, of which 4 are large, spacious and newly-finished beach villas, just a few feet from the sea. They are fitted with air-conditioning but we never felt the need to use it. The island is lovely, right in the midst of Bunaken Marine National Park, and contains, beside the Onong Resort, a colourful local village, full of small, neat, flower-filled houses, and, at the opposite end, the more expensive Siladen Resort & Spa. I went to see it, but it has a smelly, weedy beach, and is extremely far from the coral reef, whereas the Onong Resort is an incredibly beautiful spot for snorkeling and even diving straight from the beach. The resort belongs to Celebes Divers, who also own the more "worldly" Mapia Resort, on Manado. The food was just fantastic; there was always choice between pasta and Indonesian cuisine, just delicious. The diving is extremely well-organized for such a small outfit. You are taken to out-of-the-way spots, none of those "get your elbows out of my ears" Sharm -type dives, large boats, very professional instructors, and unforgettable sights.

We really enjoyed this holiday. It was organized for us through the Italian TO specialized in diving holidays, Nosy Tours, flight Milan-Singapore and Singapore-Manado, all with Singapore Air. Worth the long trip; I definitedly recommend it!

  • Liked — Perfect for snorkeling and diving, tranquility, great cuisine!
  • Disliked — Some garbage piled up on the locals' village beach.
  • Stayed March 2008, travelled as a couple
