Opened 1st September 2016: we are proud to introduce the Bunaken Oasis Dive Resort. This boutique dive resort has been lovingly designed and built by British couple Simon & Elaine Wallace, who had 1 simple goal - to create a dive resort whose every aspect meets your exacting requirements for quality and 5-star service service, both on land and in the sea. Bunaken Oasis Dive Resort provides you with the ultimate in dive convenience. Located on Bunaken island at the westerly extreme of Liang Beach, you can access some of the finest wall, muck and reef diving the area has to offer.

This is an exclusive resort. There are only 12 large, traditionally built private villas. Each boasts its own unique vista out over the beach towards the mainland. The majority of the villas have king double beds, with an additional 2-bedroom family villa. Twin beds available on request. There is also a 2-storey villa with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. No detail - no matter how small or seemingly insignificant - has been overlooked in the building of Bunaken Oasis Dive Resort. Comfy sofas, stunning, indoor en-suite bathrooms, a Krups coffee machine, high quality toiletries and free laundry service are just some of the perks that come as standard. Combining high class elegance with as small an ecological footprint has been no mean feat.

The resort itself is set amid tranquil gardens. Meander between the spa and freeform infinity pool. At the end of each relaxing day, the multi-level cocktail bar is the place to be before you make your way to dinner. The restaurant is right next door. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served here, with mouth-watering gourmet Asian and western cuisine and fantastic sea views. There's no need to compromise here. It's time to kick back and enjoy your stay at Bunaken Oasis Dive Resort.

My holiday was pretty much perfect (you canít control the weather or aquatic life), this resort is outstanding. Having read the previous reviews I was expecting a luxurious, 5 star resort. I was not disappointed. A beautiful resort is nothing without the people and Oasis has developed an exceptional team. The camera room is the best I have ever experienced in my 16 years of diving. The dive guides are all local to Bunaken/Manado and have an unparalleled knowledge of every single one of the 80 or so dive sites available. Scubanutz2016

October 2016

I had a fantastic week of diving at Bunaken Oasis Resort in early September. The resort is beautiful, tranquil and a great place to relax, unwind and do some serious diving. The reef is beautiful and you are so close to some exceptional dives sites. I completed my advance diving qualification and faced my fears and did my first night dive. All the staff are attentive and the fresh food is delicious. The diving kit is top rate and the local experience and professional diving service is first class. I could not recommend this place more. What a stunning location, resort and diving that is hard to beat. Ruth Harris

Incredible resort: good food, hospitality, diving and accommodation. Loving it. Ian Gallon

From time to time the resort and dive centre hosts a unique one off dive event. These will focus on a specific area of diving, covering a wide range of topics from underwater photography, technical diving, explore wrecks or conservation themed.

These special events are a brilliant way to learn from the accompanying experts (often a famous face!), improve your knowledge, develop new dive skills and of course, get to dive some of the most exciting destinations out there.
