The owners of this fine resort have exercised great care in construction of the premises and selection of fittings, fixtures and furniture. The staff are also well trained, friendly and helpful.
The resort is relatively expensive, more than AUD$300/night inclusive of all meals which are a la carte with the exception of a buffet breakfast. The resort is primarily for divers or those looking for a quiet secluded break in an idyllic location. It is a 45 minute drive north of Manado ( the capital of North Sulawesi ) through scenic countryside and villages, , then a 10 minute boat ride to the resort's private jetty. There is a clean white sand beach ( cleaned daily ) and a large salt water swimming pool. Rooms are comfortable with all mod cons, the bathroom is large and well appointed. The resort employs many local villagers as gardeners, sea gardeners, cleaners, dive guides and boat skippers. The gardens around the resort could be improved, however this may be difficult due the beach sand. Local dishes on the menu are adjusted for western tastes which is a little disappointing as my wife and I enjoy authentic Asian food. The owners are investing in the local environment by establishing coral regrowth projects. We did not try the spa, but thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay.More
