We conceived Bunaken Oasis with one overriding aim in mind: to create a dive resort whose every aspect meets our own exacting requirements for quality and service, both on land and on the sea. Distilling our experiences from luxury (and not-so-luxury) resorts around the world, our refusal to compromise means that every guest - whether scuba diving, rebreather diving, snorkelling, taking underwater photography, or simply relaxing by the pool - can enjoy the treasures of Bunaken from a luxury diving resort which anticipates and meets just about their every need.
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 National Park in North Sulawesi, Indonesia, is a protected, though fragile, environment, and we are committed to taking our eco- responsibilites 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.
Wherever possible, we will hire Indonesian staff for all positions; when this is not possible, it will be part of the job description of the foreign incumbent to develop his or her local successor.
Your transfer boat from the mainland will moor at our private jetty, and you’ll enter Bunaken Oasis through our beautiful Long House. Above the Long House is a spectacular free form infinity pool, ideal for who might choose to relax and catch some sun rather than dive.
Moving past 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 our restaurant, and because you’ll be spending quite a lot of time here, we’ve really made it something special: with fantastic views over the pool, Long House and out to sea, you’ll enjoy gourmet Asian and western cuisine at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Towards the rear of the resort is our tranquil Spa; wind down after a day’s diving by choosing a massage from our extensive menu of treatments, and leave yourself in the hands of one of our fully-trained therapists.
Whether you opt for a king-sized or twin-bed configuration, your 70sqm, traditionally-built villa contains everything to make your stay with us 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 our villas.
