Situated in North Sulawesi, just off the coast of Manado, Bunaken Island is world-renowned for wall diving, vibrant, healthy coral life, turtles, and vast numbers of fish with the occasional chance of a Whale Shark. There is an international airport in Manado, accessed from Singapore, but it can also be flown to from Davao, Philippines, once flights are back in operation.
Tasik Ria has been locally owned and operated since its inception. For the level of service, relaxing environment, local responsibility, dive operation, and the fantastic scenery from the jetty bar, yes, they have their own pier. Task Ria gets our vote as Manado’s best locally operated dive resort.
Tasik Ria is a long-term favourite dive resort in the area. Situated about 30 minutes drive along the coast from Manado town, it boasts the best views of Manado Dua as the sun sets over your Gin tonic after an excellent day’s diving.
The resort has many well-appointed, comfortable rooms ranging from pool to sea views and beachfront bungalows. Tasik even has its own private beach edged with a jetty and protected by a breakwater.
The dive service is excellent, with the best boats available in the area to get you out to Bunaken and back. Tasik Ria has a strong commitment to environmental protection and local livelihood initiatives. The management has been highly involved in the local community for over twenty years, giving you that unique homestay feel. You will love your stay here just as much as we do. Tasik has been a mainstay on our diving calendar for almost a decade!
