This resort offers clean, modern and fresh accomodation with traditional Indonesian decor and dark wooden furnishings. Each room comes with air conditioning, large comfortable beds and cable TVs. The cottages and rooms are dotted around a large pool. The pool has a shallow area - great for little ones - as well as a deeper section and wet bar serving tropical drinks and snacks all day. 

The resort is set within landscaped gardens, and offers numerous quiet spots ideal for relaxing, reading a good book or spending quality time with friends or family. If you are looking for something more adventurous, you've come to the right place! Within 1 hour's drive of the resort you can enjoy diving on world-renowned muck and reef diving destinations Manado, Bunaken, Bangka and Lembeh Straits. 

There is a large open plan reception area with lounge seating. The restaurant overlooks the lush landscaped gardens and serves the best flavours from Eastern and European cuisine. From freshly made croissants for breakfast to classic beef rendang for dinner, even the pickiest of eaters will find something to please their palate. There is a weekly BBQ and its possible to arrange a romantic candlelit dinner on the beach for yourself and a loved one (just ask the staff when you arrive!).

For those seeking ultimate relaxation after a busy morning diving, The Matana Spa offers traditional Indonesian massages, after which guests can use the sauna or hot tub. Other activities include white water rafting, rainforest hiking, volcano trekking and more. 

Explore diving around the Tasik Ria Resort & Spa

What to see

If it’s weird, you are likely to find it in the Lembeh Strait. Top critters on every diver and photographers wish list include the mimic octopus, Wonderpus, Rhinopias, flamboyant cuttlefish, Ambon scorpionfish, harlequin shrimp, and the very entertaining hairy frogfish. If lucky, you might also come across the delicate Lembeh Sea Dragon. Also, be boggled by the wide array of nudibranch and during night dives, look out for stargazers in the sand and Spanish dancers passing by in the darkness.

At areas like Bunaken and the nearby Bangka, dolphins or pilot whales can sometimes be seen from the surface. Underwater, expect green sea turtles, schools of trevally and colorful reef fish along the many walls. Bangka and Manado Tua also feature a myriad of critters.

If you dive around the Sangihe Archipelago and Talaud Islands, the healthy reefs and volcanic activity yield many colorful reef fish and schools of fusilier, snapper and predators like trevally, barracuda and Dogtooth tuna. Macro life is also abundant and there are pygmy seahorses, crabs and shrimp as well as nudibranch to find at muck dive sites. Look out for pelagic animals which come to feed and clean like manta rays, sharks and even hammerhead sharks.
