This was our third stay at Cha Cha and as usual we really enjoyed it - Raf and Reiko are great hosts! The rooms are clean and comfortable and have everything you need whilst the staff get better and better. Meals are a set menu but freshly cooked Indonesian - fusion and well presented. Great atmosphere; cosy, relaxed setting with...

Have just returned from 9 days staying at Cha Cha Resort and wish we could go back next week. Cannot fault anything about our stay - the accomodation (roomy with aircon and a view of sunrise over the ocean); the meals (just fantastic); the staff (friendly, helpful); and of course - the diving (just awesome). Raf and Reiko were perfect...

The beauty of Bunaken Cha Cha, aside from the truly stunning sealife all around, was its easy and relaxed simplicity along with charm and warmth in abundance. Raf and Reiko were easy-going and welcoming hosts and their friendly, accommodating team made for a genuinely special experience. I booked very late, just two days before I travelled,and the airport pick-up and...

We had a wonderful time at Bunaken Cha Cha... scuba diving all morning and relaxing all afternoon. The hosts are extremely welcoming, the staff friendly and helpful, the accommodation very comfortable and the food excellent. Our room was 20 m from the ocean - a wonderful spot. The only problem was we had to leave too early. We stayed 5...

This is our fourth time at Bunaken Cha Cha. It continuous to be an outstanding place. Beautiful location, great food, diving is excellent and the equipment and guides are fantastic.

My 3rd stay at Cha Cha was just as good as the previous two: Even though the staff was new and the owners not at home, Bunaken again presented world class diving and relaxation!

If you read all the other reviews then all we can say is that they are an absolutely true reflection of the "resort". You can have privacy if you need it or equally be part of the "family". The beach and tide pools are a marvellous way to wile away the time between snorkelling and eating. Raf and Reiko manage...

Dear Roger Thank you very much for taking the time to review Cha Cha and we are so glad that you all enjoyed your holiday with us. As you know, there is very little opportunity for the people on Bunaken to study catering or any aspect of Resort work and so it is great pleasure for us, the owners, to...

If you're looking for a vacation that has a beautiful natural location, no pressing agendas and comfortable accomodations, this is for you. All I wanted to do was relax, do a little snorkeling, have everything taken care of for me, food, snacks, travel arrangements, and that exactly what I got. This vacation was worth every penny.
