Jet to Sulawesi for a dive holiday in Indonesia that excels at every opportunity. Tasik Ria resort might only be half an hour from the hustle of Manado but it feels a world away and sits on the doorstep of some of the most phenomenal dive sites in Indonesia. Amid the leafy palm trees and scenic backdrop, you will experience a warm welcome before jumping into the pristine dive sites of Bunaken, Lembeh and Bangka.

At only 34 rooms, Tasik Ria is small enough to retain a friendly intimate feel but with all the facilities you could need to relax totally and just enjoy your diving. There are 2 rooms grades to pick from - 20 pool view rooms or 14 sea view cottages. All have air con. mini bar, safe, en suite and TV. Some of the pool view rooms have interconnecting rooms, ideal for families or groups. The sea view cottages are more secluded, set away from the pool and looking out over the gorgeous blue seas. Sit back at the end of the day on your private veranda and feel the relaxation wash over you.

The diving is what draws most people to Tasik Ria but don't be fooled - this is not all that is on offer! The resort staff are always on hand to arrange those special extras to make your holiday stand out. Why not enquire about a candlelit dinner on the beach or individual menu for a special occasion? The food is freshly prepared each day, combining Indonesian cuisine with some more familiar European influences. The Jetty bar is ready for sundowners. Or head to the spa for the ultimate relaxation. Dive into one of Indonesia's most famous destinations and prepare to be amazed.

The pool bar and spa are currently closed for renovation.

October 2012

I thought the trip was fantastic – really well organised, transfers, the tours and diving were brilliant. I would definitely go back to Tasik Ria – I don’t think I have ever been made so welcome or felt that everything possible would be done for me to ensure a fantastic holiday. Please pass my gratitude to Dan and his staff. The food was good (especially the a le carte menu. The rooms were comfortable and had a great spa and pool. In terms of the diving Tasik was well run, professional, friendly, safe and very chilled and relaxed . . . . I never felt rushed to kit up, everything was at the pace that it should be on a holiday. The diving at Bunaken was good but it was the local and house reefs that I enjoyed most . . . . I saw most of what I hoped to see at lembeh there. Walking 2 minutes up the hotel jetty to board the boat is definitely the way to dive. Stuart Patterson
