If you want a destination where you can unplug from your devices, be pampered by Raf and Reiko and their amazing staff, eat wonderfully prepared food and experience unparalleled multitudes of many varieties of tropical fish and turtles, then look no further! Raf and Reiko are wonderful hosts who join the guests for communal dining. Unfortunately for me, I had...

We have just returned from an 11 night stay at Cha Cha and wish that we could have stayed for longer. Raf and Reiko and their staff made us feel very welcome. The room had everything we required and was very spacious and clean, it had an ocean view and its own terrace. The diving was fantastic with huge numbers...

I spent a truly relaxing week at ChaCha in a beautiful cottage with the view of the sea, great diving, pleasant walks and friendly locals to interact with. The resort is a small family run affair. The hosts are both experienced divers and they know the island and Manado like the back of their hand, so they will be able...

If all you want from your trip is excellence in the above then you have come to the right place. This is a small resort which feels like an extended family run by Raf ,an Irish-Italian and his Japanese wife, Reiko. Many of the guests are repeaters who have fallen in love with this gem of a place. While we...

Snorkeling and diving trips twice a day - or you can just relax.Peaceful and elegant, small and friendly. Owners are a Japanese/Irish couple, extremely nice and pleasant to be with. There are three meals a day, delicious and different every day but...

Stayed and dived at Cha Cha for a week with a group of friends. I fell in love with the place that I went back again for another week the month after! Cha Cha is located off the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. It was a pleasant ride from the airport to the harbour, and then followed by the boat transfer...

We have just visited Cha Cha for the third (and not last) time as we are always made to feel so very welcome at this little gem on Bunaken Island by the owners Raf and Reiko as well as all the staff.

I had been diving in Manado and Bunaken in 2010. I had stayed in Manado at that time. The diving in Bunaken really left me breathless. I decided that the next time I returned, I would stay on Bunaken island. I chose Bunaken Cha Cha, as I had read many great reviews. And in the end, I can say that...

We had a spacious clean room overlooking the sea and we enjoyed the delicious meals carefully prepared by our hosts. Very cozy and relaxing environment and very friendly and attentive staff. The dives around the island were...
