Bunaken Oasis Dive Resort & Spa

Bunaken Oasis Dive Resort & Spa

Bunaken Island - North Sulawesi - Indonesia

The Bunaken Oasis Resort is our latest offering in Indonesia and is luxury at its best.

Bunaken Oasis redefines diving in Bunaken.  Positioned very much at the luxury end of the spectrum, the aim is to provide a 5-star experience whilst keeping the ecological footprint to a minimum.

The resort offers 12 large, traditionally-built villas, including one family villa with two bedrooms, and one villa near the Long House for those who may have difficulty walking.

A major focal point of the resort is a free form infinity pool, with sun-loungers and easy access to the bar, for those who want to spend time above, rather than below, the water.

In addition to a chill-out cocktail bar and a full-service restaurant serving Indonesian and international cuisine, guest amenities also include an air conditioned library, a fully-equipped classroom in the Dive Centre with 4k flat-screen TV, especially useful for photographic groups, and a spacious camera room with more charging points than you will ever need.

The Bunaken Marine National Park is a protected, though fragile, environment, and we are committed to taking our eco-responsibilities very seriously.  Using our own bore holes, or even sea-water, with water makers and ultraviolet treatment, we have ensured that all the water in the resort is fully drinkable, and we can avoid the need for one of the greatest pollutants of our time - plastic bottles.  In addition, all waste water will be processed through a water-treatment plant. Contact us for pricing and availability...!
