Minahasa Lagoon is nestled in the coral, volcanic sands of Mangatasik beach in the world famous Bunaken Marine Park, 30 kilometers southwest of Manado.
It’s aim is to tailor a unique experience to individual guests and to make their stay a dream to remember.
Features include a fresh water swimming pool and the Lagoon Spa, conceived to look like you are being lowered into the sea while offering breathtaking views over Manado Tua. The resort also boasts a heated Jacuzzi and sea front bar. Guests can either wine and dine in the River Restaurant which offers an original blend of Italian or international cuisine or enjoy a wealth of Indonesian dishes in the Jungle Restaurant, immersed in lush tropical vegetation.
Each of the 15 sea-view villas reflects the resorts sense of space luxury and style, with a private verandah offering panoramic views over the ocean. Drawing inspiration from traditional architectural style, each villa highlights intricate thatched roofing and interior furnishings are made from excellent wood grown in the Mollucas. Typical stones of the area have been used for fittings and bridges so that the resort is in perfect harmony with its surroundings. Modern amenities, creature comforts and personal touches highlight every villa to anticipate guest’s needs.
Couples who are celebrating a special occasion can enjoy a romantic candlelight dinner on their verandah in intimate settings where the only intrusion is the caress of the breeze from the Pacific Ocean.
For the last twenty years, enthusiasts have considered Manado one of the most fascinating places for scuba diving, thanks to its unique and unrivalled bio-diversity. The resort has the immense fortune to have one of the best critter sites on it’s doorstep and Bunaken Marine Park just cross the bay. The house reef is macro heaven where you can find rhinopias, frogfish, stonefish, sea snakes, juvenile zebra batfish, nudibranches, ghost pipefish, squid, sea jellies, sea wasp, snake eels, mimic octopus and thorny sea horses. The PADI registered dive center is directed by European instructors, assisted by professional dive guides and is equipped with the newest Scubapro gear. It also offers Nitrox and has custom-built boats for the specific needs of divers and underwater photographers.
