Nice and family friendly small resort with some very friendly hosts. Indeed a relaxing place with lots of good "karma" especially because of the friendly hosts (you eat all the meas together with them). Good snorkeling opportunities very close.

This resort have good reviews and it was one of the reason we selected it. We thus expected great, but we got even better ! The owners, Raf and Riko, a lovely Irish-Italian/Japanese couple, have made a little paradise in Bunaken. Some people just know how to make things right. We had a wonderful one week stay there. Bungalows were...

On leaving Cha Cha, after spending 4 nights, we (my wife, 25 year old daughter and I) discussed what we look for in an island holiday. Answer - great snorkelling from a dive boat or off shore, comfortable and clean accommodation with a great bed, a balcony with lovely ocean views, friendly staff and terrific (and varied) food.

What an amazing place! We – a family of four with two teenage sons - spent 5 days at Cha Cha which didn’t seem enough. The rooms/bungalows are fantastic, clean and spacious with great views. You feel very welcome – almost as in a private home with meals taken with the owners/hosts Irish/Italian Raf and his Japanese wife Reiko. So...

We have stayed a week in the Bunaken Cha Cha in one of the newly built ocean front villas. The accommodation is very new and spacious whereas the rest of the resort is older.

We just spent 4 nights at the Cha Cha. First, Bunaken and its environs pleasantly surprised us. We had heard that there was a lot of litter but we saw little to no sign of that. The snorkelling along the coral wall was amazing with swarms of different species of fish surrounding us. The coral was beautiful too. The Cha...
