Comments What a nice surprise to find this hidden treasure of a dive resort. The resort is nicely done, the food was excellent and always served in a wonderful buffet style, the staff is very helpful and the diving operation was superb. Our dive guide was attentive and made every dive a good experience. We asked for this guide and the resort honored our request even though he was on holiday having worked for several weeks straight prior to our arrival. The diving was done within the islands of a protected region (Bunaken) and even though the diver traffic is heavy from a crowded number of local resorts, the corals were in great shape. This is not the place for big fish but the variety of small tropical is wonderful and there is "muck" diving along the shore line of Sulawesi that mimics what one sees in Lembah. We would return to this resort without question - our experience was terrific.
