Dugong! Dugong! Dugong!!!!! in front of Bunaken Cha Cha.

Yesterday at lunch time, we saw group of dolphins passing by in front of Cha Cha, so we are talking about dolphins and Dugong and Whale shark passing through around Bunaken.

Especially yesterday was "New Moon", we said to guests maybe there is a possibility to see Dugong in front of Cha Cha especially when it's still low tide.

Then late afternoon, our professional photographer Mr.M, he met Dugong as we spoked!!!


Nowadays more often guests start see Dugon around Cha Cha.

Mr.M took even short video of the single Dugong swimming away happily into the blue and quite first.

I wish we can show you this video, but not sure if I can borrow this short movie of Dugong...  I shall try... 


Sulawesi is a quite famous big coffee island in Indonesia.
In our resort we normally use coffee call "Kotamobagu Kopi", local brand from Kotamobagu, North Sulawesi.
For the expresso / cappuccino lover, we have also Nespresso coffee.

But now our guests will be able to enjoy another type of good local coffee "Toarco Toraja Coffee"  provided by one of our guests who transport this to Japan.

Toraja coffee, which has been recognized as a masterpiece of Arabica coffee throughout the world, is now available at  Cha Cha Bar, also at our souvenir select shop "Reef shop".

Enjoy this mellow aroma and well balanced taste of Toarco Toraja Coffee especially after lunch relaxing time looking at sea, listening to the waves.

Hana turned to a house dog??

Our dog "Chin" chan is in heat now, so Gonzo protecting her like crazy thus they leave their daughter "Hana" chan alone in the dinning area at early night for a while.  

Hana doesn't want be left alone in dinning area, of course, she is a just 5 month old puppy, so she started visit our home often especially at night.

Little bit strange feeling for us after we lost Chiko, we never thought even our doggies will ever enter our house, because they are more like a village dog(half wild dog), not same breed like Chiko or house dog. but look at Hana…  she looks quite comfortable on the sofa next to me.

very cute… Hana chan…
