Me and my girlfriend had a great time here! I had diving lessons from Steven who really took the time t make sure I really understood everything. While diving he gave us a lot of attention which made us feel very safe. Although we staid in another place there was no problem to still go diving there. They even picked... More

Living Colours is a great dive resort run by a Finnish couple since 2002. The diving around Bunaken is excellent I am a dive master with over 250 dives everywhere in Mediterranean, Egypt, Carribian, Asia, Australia and Pacific. But Bunaken is my favorite place. The diversity of fish, corals and other species like nudi branches is amazing. We have been... More

The resort is simple but comfortable and clean, perched over a small hill. You are first wiggled in (by boat or foot, depending on tide) over a channel squirming through a vibrant coral reef - a breeding area for all the bigger stuff deeper down (saw many baby morays for example!) - and through a mangrove forest, finally landing on...

We had quite high expectations for our holiday in Bunaken but Living Colours still managed to exceed our expectations with their hospitality and amazing diving. The resort is very peaceful, bungalows spacious and food delicious with chicken, fish and vegetarian options on every meal. It's also great that they have drinking water in the bungalows and you can get coffee/tea/fruit/cookies... More

This place is not one of those plastic corporate resorts but a place where you can really feel and breathe our beautiful planet. Great people and the underwater scenery is mind-blowing. Highly recommended for those who want to get away from the "tourist" experience! -Sampo

We like this place and it has not failed for a third time. Most important: the top professional, efficient and client-friendly diving operation. Thanks, Mia, Annika and the guys for their continuous effort! Then: the restaurant. Same story: delicious as ever, 10 days with very little repetition of dishes: great. And we do like the rooms, albeit it was sometime... More

The diving centre and the instructors are really nice and professional. The reef is really wonderful. instead the accomodations are not at the european level, while the price are really high for indonesian standard: a bit old, dirty mosquito net, jeko escrement on the bed. In addition to this, you must go out with the boat to dive or to... More

We stayed a week in the beginning of July. Such a great place! You can basically dive all day around, new sites every time. The staff really take care of you, no need to carry your gear. Food was absolutely the best. After and before dives you could enjoy delicious meals with your diving pals. Rooms clean and ok. After... More

We had great 5 dives with living colours. Boat leaves every morning at 8 a.m and they take care of everything. All you have to do is dive. They put your diving gear ready and just jump into the water. The places that they took us were amazing!

“Any room will do. The bungalows are all situated on a hill above the diving centre, so every one of them should be peaceful and quiet.”

“Do not sleep with your light on. It will attract all kinds of flying friends. Also, the mosquito net is there for a good reason. If you are on a small budget and would still like to dive with Living Colours, you can stay next door at Lorenso's, and just dive with Living Colours. That will not be frowned upon, and, in fact, many people seemed to do that.”
