It was not one year since we left this wonderful place, now we are back again. Please see that review. We were at least as happy with The Village Bunaken this time. The room is very good, the lunch and dinner buffet event better than last time. The breakfast however was not as good as last time. It is still...

We are snorkellers who stayed 5 nights and enjoyed the house reef immensely! The food is included in the rate and is quite tasty. The kitchen girls worked hard to please. We used the Spa twice and both agreed it was one of the best massages we ever had! The welcoming Management saw to our requests and made sure we...

I was staying there with my friends, for holiday, 2 days and 1 night. We were picked up by boat with the owner herself, she was so nice and welcome us so friendly. The Village Bunaken is really like a small green village by the sea. There's no reception like any other hotel, you can do the registration at the...

After all the rave reviews we had high expectations. We were a bit dissapointed though. As every hotel on Pulau Bunaken it has a full board formula. The food is OK but not that good, with some good dishes. There is a good reef in front of the hotel where you can snorkel. Lots of fishes and good coral. You...

Bunaken was the end of our trip thru Sulawesie and we really needed a comfortable place to relax at the end of our holiday. We first checked the other places on the island and we concluded that the Village resort was the best option. We can recommend this resort for the quality, super friendly staff, good kitchen, spa and snorkel...

Spent 3 days here and loved every second. Unfortuantely I cant dive due to medical problems but the snorkeling in front of the place is one of the best i have ever seen. You also have the option to go out with the divers and snorkel which was also good. Staff were great, food was good and the location excellent....

Gardens are well established and cared for. All of the communal spaces are spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately we had to cut...

This is a great place to relax for a few days. The reef right in front of the hotel is fantastic. The hotel is very clean and the rooms (some with AC) are very nice. The staff is friendly and the food is good. Recommended!

Its a great place to stay, to eat well, nice dives, nice people and a great place to enjoy your favourite book. The owners tried to make our stay the beat possible. Bearing in mind that Bunaken is a small island about 45 min by boat from Manado, its a very nice surrounding and a rustic- comfortable hotel.
