Thalassa Dive Resort (Thalassa Dive Resort)

Nature rules in North Sulawesi and the Minahasa people are spoiled by what nature brings them; hence the “culture” of enjoying life; eating, drinking and music. People sing, play guitar and enjoy the traditional food and local booze.

Thalassa Dive Resort, managed by the Dutch Simone Gerritsen, likes to make you experience this during your stay and blends western service with a local touch.

All 22 rooms are equipped with western facilities and AC. The Bungalows and Cottages have a minibar, WiFi and you can enjoy the view over sea or the swimming pool from your own terrace.

You will love the local cuisine which our 3 chefs create. If you would like something else? They also cater for dietary requests.

We like to take you to explore the markets, the Highlands, the waterfalls and jungle or the local school, one of te social projects Thalassa Dive Resort is supporting.

The specialized guides of Thalassa’s 5* PADI Dive Center provide professionally organized diving around Bunaken, Lembeh and Bangka showing you a wealth of critters, stunning reefs, turtles and dolphins. Small groups, flexible scheduling, Nitrox, PADI

Courses and equipment “care-&-carry” service will enhance your holiday feeling.
