We stayed here at the end of a 3 week Sulawesi trip and it was superb. As others say, the location, the height above the sea ensuring both superb sunsets and the catching of any breezes, the rooms and the general ambiance were perfect. Three things make this resort stand out in our mind - the manager Martyn who was...

My fiance and I recently had the opportunity to spend 4 nights at this delightful resort. From the moment we met the general manger Martijn at the Manado wharf till the day of departure we were treated more like friends than customers. We stayed in one of the ocean front bungalows that had sweeping panoramic views and though spartan amenities...

Stayed at Bunaken Island Resort for 5 days and loved every part of it: the traditional Minahasa-style bungalows with ocean-views, the wonderful food, the rain showers, the friendly staff and Martijn, the super-helpful Dutch manager. After having travelled through Sulawesi this was our last stop. We were able to completely unwind and relax, which was too easy with a cold...

The villas we stayed in were full of rustic feel, giving us the feeling of being marooned on an island, albeit in a very positive way! The island itself is beaauutifuuullll; clear waters, marvellous reef walls.... amazing diving experience. Well, nothing beats having a wonderful host Evelyn, coupled with friendly and humorous staff. Thanks to all for making our stay...

Fantastic food! I could eat those corn fritters for breakfast lunch and dinner, everyday! Eveline was a lovely host. Be aware, this is not a hotel. It's a small island; power and water pressure during the day may be sketchy. Regardless, who needs power when you are surrounded by the most amazing diving and snorkeling in the world? There was...

My family had a great time scuba diving, snorkeling, just chilling out and enjoying yummy meals with no distraction from tv or phone calls. Our host, Evelyn, was a fun and friendly host, Sven was a very skillful dive instructor and guide, the locals were ever willing to bring us anywhere we wanted to go. We encountered hundreds of dolphins...

I truly loved staying in this resort for 5 nights surrounded by beautiful scenery, flowers, greens, and the best of all was the great seafood provided for every lunch and dinner.
