Comments Lovely resort set on a tropical island with sand beaches. Wonderful Italian chef with buffet lunch and dinner right on the beach under the trees. Dive operation well set up. Each person had own gear locker. Crew took all gear on boat each trip. We had same dive guide all week for our group of four. We dove various sites along the mainland as well as Bunaken Marine Park. On several dives we had a very strong down current to contend with. And some current on most dives. Coral was in good shape with lots of schools of smaller fish around the reef. Turtles of all sizes on most dives. Interesting critters as well. Resort had an excellent spa with lots of different services. The massage therapists were top notch. There was a very nice boutique shop in the lobby. There was an open air bar with outside seating areas to watch the spectacular sunsets. A really great spot to combine a dive trip with a 5 star resort experience.
