Cocotinos Manado is a boutique dive resort located within Wori Bay in the heart of Kima Bajo, a fishing village overlooking the Bunaken National Marine Park, world famous for its rich and astounding, wall and macro scuba diving.
A mere 25-minute drive from Manado’s Sam Ratulangi International Airport brings you to the resort, nestled on a chocolate-coloured beach in full view of Siladen Island and Manado Tua, a majestic dormant volcano across the Sulawesi Sea.
Through the use of selected hardwoods, stone, and other ecologically friendly building materials sourced from the region, the resort blends seamlessly with the surrounding village and coconut grove.
At Cocotinos Manado, you will enjoy fabulous diving, spectacular sunsets, delicious local and international cuisine, and our signature warm and personal service that is now much talked about among our loyal guests.
Besides Bunaken Marine Park, a 90-minute drive will bring you to Lembeh Straits on the other side of North Sulawesi, the “capital” of muck diving in the world.
Cocotinos was designed to be simple and practical along the lines of a small Indonesian village but equipped with all the modern comforts for the present-day traveller. Cocotinos is a 22-room property comprising of 2 Standard Rooms, 6 Garden Rooms with garden view, 4 Garden Rooms with full pool and ocean view, 8 Water’s Edge Rooms and 2 Suites (Kano-Kano and Posi-Posi).
The rooms are generally built in a semi-detached arrangement with two rooms under one roof. Each Suite is built on top of 2 Water’s Edge Rooms.
At Cocotinos we aim to make your stay with us a truly memorable experience.
Cocotinos Manado is our first property and while we are primarily a dive resort, many non-divers who stayed with us have had a great time, chilling out by the pool or in our bar, indulging in our spa treatments, and using our resort as a base to explore the Minahasa highlands, Tangkoko National Park and various other local attractions.
Apart from diving, guests may also explore a number of other villages nearby, where they can experience genuine local culture in the everyday life of the villages, and sometimes even participate in the celebrations during festive occasions.
For those who wish to venture further, our resort organises tours which can bring you to Manado, the capital city of North Sulawesi or Lake Tondano, a volcanic crater lake where you can experience the beautiful scenery and cool weather of the Minahasa Highlands.
