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... More

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... More

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.

Spent 4 nights here recently and loved it. Fantastic views over the water to the volcano Manado Tua. Food was terrific, plentiful, varied, fresh and delicious.
