Bunaken Oasis Resort

Bunaken Oasis Resort redefines diving in Bunaken. Positioned at the luxury end of the spectrum, the resort aims to provide a 5-star experience whilst keeping their ecological footprint to a minimum. The resort offers 12 large, traditionally-built villas, including one family villa with two bedrooms. 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.

There is only one standard of accommodation at Bunaken Oasis Resort – luxury. Whether you opt for a king-sized or twin-bed configuration, your 70sqm, traditionally-built villa contains everything to make your stay exceptional: air conditioning, spacious and luxurious indoor bathroom with local produced and organic products, sumptuous furniture in keeping with the traditional styles, Dolce Gusto coffee machine, free easy to access Wi-Fi, a Samsung tablet loaded with fish guides and more, a Bluetooth speaker and a beautiful large balcony with stunning views from each of the villas.

Towards the rear of the resort is the resort’s tranquil Spa. Wind down after a day’s diving by choosing a massage from the extensive menu of treatments, and leave yourself in the hands of one of the fully-trained therapists.

Just beyond the pool, you come to the chill-out cocktail bar, where you can enjoy a range of fine wines and spirits (and Bintang!) while you unwind beneath the stars. To the side of the bar is the resort’s restaurant, and because you’ll be spending quite a lot of time here, they’ve really made it something special: with fantastic views over the pool and out to sea, you’ll enjoy gourmet Asian and western cuisine at breakfast, lunch and dinner.

With easy access to over 90 superb dive sites, the variety of diving Bunaken offers is amazing: vertical walls with the sea bed 1500 metres beneath your fins, gentle walls with sandy bottoms, stunning reef tops, and muck diving on the mainland. Bunaken has it all.

But what happens beneath the waves is only one part of the diving experience. At Bunaken Oasis Resort they firmly believe that every aspect of the diving experience should reflect their focus on luxury. Diving is from one of the resort’s brand-new, purpose-built dive boats (1 x 17 metre fibreglass catamaran, 3 x 14 metre and 2 x 16 metre traditional wooden boats). All the resort’s boats provide freshwater deck showers, catering facilities, flushing WCs, and excellent facilities for photographers. However, perhaps what they’re most proud of is the space you’ll enjoy on board.

Bunaken Oasis Resort’s PADI dive centre has a large, comfortable classroom, a spacious camera room for photographers and ample freshwater rinse tanks. For those who choose to travel light, you can hire everything you need to dive from their extensive range of equipment from leading manufacturers.
