Thalassa Dive Resort Manado

…where guests leave as friends!

At Thalassa Manado, you can completely unwind and lose track of time. This resort is built on a beautiful stretch of green gardens away from the busy city, right on Bunaken Marine Park’s doorstep.

With air-conditioned accommodation ranging from duplex rooms to spacious bungalows, you can indulge in our simple luxuries with all the comforts of home. 

Cooling off in the pool with a cold drink and not thinking about anything is the very definition of “recharging your batteries”.

The delicious Indonesian food from our award-winning restaurant is included in your stay, with a lot of fresh ingredients home-grown from our veggie garden.

Outside the resort, you will find small villages on the green hillsides which are perfect for an early morning run or stroll. Everyone is incredibly friendly and will eagerly wave at you and say hello. It’s a truly easy-going place.

Garden Bungalow

Cozy atmosphere, beautiful views and sunsets, amazing diving with awesome coral walls. A PADI dive center that really cares! Due to the nice resort I would even stay here without diving. Most importantly, extremely welcoming and friendly staff. It feels like one big family. This resort is not 5 stars, the staff is!
