This year we came back to Siladen after 3 years. Our first experience was overwhelming at Tanta Moon. The location is fantastic knowing to see the cast of 'Finding Nemo' just 2 to 5 meters from your bungalow door. So for 3 relaxing days we came back but unfortunately Tanta Moon was fully booked. But the owner managed us to stay next to them at their neighbours Onong's Resort. Wow this was a fantastic alternative. But our breakfast, lunch and dinner we had still at Tanta Moon. This was all fine with us. Onong's place sell's it's bungalows in diving packages and we are snorkelling people.
It was good to be back and what we've noticed that Tanta moon upgraded their quality and quantity of food compared with the last time (March 2011) we've been here. If you are vegetarian of meat eater you have your dish and of course for a fish lover like me it's standard. During the day you have little snacks like 'pisang goreng' so no worries you will be hungry. Also you can have your coffee and tea or drinking water as much as you like while this is at your service 24 hours.
We stayed for 2 nights and had a great time snorkelling at Bunaken island and at Siladen seeing turtles, all the colored coral fish (Nemo included of course) and in Siladen 20 meters from the bungalow at the wall the Napoleon fish. We had great sunrise and sunset (behind Manado Tua).
On the last evening Tanta Moon gave us a great banket with 'Babi Guling Manado'. If you like porc, this is the best a sinner can eat :-) It's heaven. We find ourselves lucky to have this served with all the other guests. See our pics ...
The staff of Tanta Moon is very friendly and helpful and for snorkelling they will bring you to the best snorkelling spots at Bunaken. Tanta Moon has their own boat. Ask for boat trip facilities!
