I booked a 4 nights / 6 dives at Mamaling Resort. The Diving is really great with beautiful walls full of corals and a huge variety of fish. The diving equipment is great and so was the diving instructor. I really felt taken care of. The rooms are clean and since it is quite warm, I did not at all...

After a last minute decision to go to Bunaken, we trusted Tripadvisor reviews and selected the Mamaling for our stay. What a good decision! The Mamaling is not your usual resort, hidden on the other side of Bunaken, between forest and Mangrove, it is composed of a couple of cosy chalets overlooking the mangrove. Owned by Tom and his wife,...

We had an amazing 4 night stay at the start of our 6 week trip in Sulawesi. Now we have finished the trip we can honestly say this was one of the loveliest places we stayed in and with some of the best - and well organised - diving we did on our trip. The team are very safety conscious,...

Bunaken has changed a lot, but despite garbage global worming... still worth to visit. Mamaling is for such a visit the excellent place protected from most of the garbage. Accommodation, we had a 4 person family bungalow, is good, the food even better. . These guys do a good job. A couple of things should be improved. The first impression...

I love staying in small places and Mamaling fit the bill since it has only 4 cottages. While the highest cottage has a great view of the sea, I preferred the ones below as you dont get to hear the generator at all. They are comfortable, adequate, spacious and I didnt have any cause for complaint in the 3 nights...

My wife and I stayed in Mamaling for a week in June and we absolutely loved it! The hotel is nice and neat. We stayed in the hill side bunglow, which is slightly more expensive but definitely worth it. We went out for snorkeling everyday and stay in the restaurant reading bar in the afternoon. The food is amazing. The...

This may not be the place for you if you need nightlife with fancy cocktails, hot water for your shower or air conditioning because you won't find them at this resort. However, if you want to play Robinson Crusoe, with tasty fresh food and a comfy bed with a mosquito net, you can do that here - there are no...
