Bobocha is amazing! Siladen island its self is already a wonderful place and Sarah, who's Bobocha's owner, is the best host you can expect! She made our trip fabulous: we stayed for 5 days and every single day has been fantastic! Her cooking skills are terrific: every meal was delicious. Everything is fresh, with a great taste...and all veggies she...

If you need a super nice, shady location, the best food in the region and one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world - go to Boboca Siladen. We have spent three nights there, and it was just perfect. Apart from Sarah being a very interesting discussion partner, she knows very well how to please her guests with...

Although we stayed at Onong's place having a time or our 3 days & 2 nights, we got introduced by the owner of Tanta Moon to Sarah, owner of Bobocha. Staying on the same island 500 meters further down the road and beach of Siladen Bobocha offers a totally different feel of staying in paradise. It's hard to compare Onong's,...

We were looking for a beach, calm waves, good food and snorkel or swim in the waters. We got just that. Not being good swimmers, or divers, we didn't really want to go to Bunaken and Siladen's Bobocha sounded just right. There's a ferry everyday at around 2 or 3pm that goes to Slidaen costing 30K rupiah or 2.5 USD....

It is a very nice place if you know what to expect: It is a very small Island with nothing to do at night. During the day you can swim, relax, snorchel, walk around the Island and that´s it. The Cottages are simple, the power is on only at night time from around 19.00 untill maybe 2 or 3.00 in...

Top tip: fly to Manado, get a taxi to Bunaken Port, then get a boat over to Siladen and enjoy a taste of paradise! Sarah is the perfect host, and an amazing cook. The beach accommodation is simple but clean, the setting is tranquil and peaceful, and the coral a must-see. We are a couple who enjoyed three nights stay...

We stayed at Bobocha for 9 nights in December 2012. There are only 4 cottages, just few meters from the beach, I would recommend selecting one of the cottages closest to the shore. The setting and location of the Bobocha is excellent and the house reef is great although the beach is sometimes affected by rubbish coming in from Manado....

Bobocha is the place for a quiet, romantic island holiday with beautiful sunsets, a great house reef, snorkeling with beach access, great food, friendly service, clean rooms, and comfortable beds that have mosquito nets.
