The Village Bunaken
The Village Bunaken Dive Resort offers a combination of privacy as well as a place to meet others. From the beach and into a secluded natural tropical garden you will find well-spaced and comfortable cottages. Share your underwater experiences and travel stories. Friendly staff, excellent service and a wide range of facilities were formulated to transform the resort into a small village. Hence the name is Bunaken Village.
The style of the resort is a balanced blend of several Indonesian styles of architecture. The main structures are in a traditional Minahasa style modernized with contemporary and functional tropical design. The finer details are mainly Balinese and Javanese in origin.
Sipping a cool refreshing drink beside the pool, sunbathing on the beachside sundeck, enjoying a good book in the reading lounge area or simply visit the outdoor garden spa are options besides great diving experience. This resort offers more facilities and services to distinguish it from the others.
The Village Bunaken offers several types of stylish and well equipped cottages and rooms. All rooms are equipped with western bathrooms, hot/cold shower, fan, 24 hour electricity, bath towels, amenities, thin blankets and drinking water. The resort has only 8 cottages and 2 rooms, which makes it very small scale and perfectly exclusive to add personal service and attention to your stay.
Hidden in a tropical garden are stone walled Gardenview Cottages with cool tiled floors. The large veranda has lazy chairs and a hammock. The air-conditioned bedroom is fitted with quality spring bed, a small desk and open cabinet, and completed with a large and bright Balinese bathroom.
The restaurant offers Indonesian classic menu, local delicacies, Chinese and Western favorites including Indonesian favorites such as sate, gado-gado, rendang and several curries. Occasionally fresh fish from the local fisherman is served. Lunch and dinner are served in buffet-style including soups, salads, fresh fruit and dessert. Breakfast includes toast, cheese, marmalades, fresh juice and eggs, pancakes and cereal. Guests with dietary restrictions are welcome to inform the resort prior to arrival, although most meals have some vegetarian options.
Drinks are served from the bar which is conveniently located beside the pool and restaurant. Soft drinks, various brands of cold beer, cocktails, wine, fruit juices and stronger liquors are available. A nice attached terrace with shady umbrella’s and sea view is the place to enjoy your beverage with favorite snacks from a selection of cookies, chips, chocolate and peanuts.
The well-equipped dive center provides wash and carry services to let the divers fully concentrate on enjoying the diving. The standard of small groups with a maximum of 4 divers per dive guide ensures good service with a personal touch. Since the resort is located on Bunaken Island, most dive-sites are only a short boat-ride away.
All diving boats are equipped with oxygen, first aid kit, telecommunication devices, drinking water, coffee, tea, fruit and cookies onboard. A fresh water tank is provided for cameras, a computer with card reader, cd-burner and internet connection are available in the resort.
