You will be surprised how close to nature you feel at Thalassa Manado and that is something you feel everywhere around the resort... between the fruit trees, the swaying palm trees and the flowers of the lush gardens. Thalassa is located at the boarder of Bunaken National Park. The resort boarders the sea but does not have a white beach; the great pool and the different spots to enjoy the sunsets definitely make up for it. North Sulawesi has one of the richest and most varied underwater landscapes on earth. one can find more than 58 different coral species and subspecies and about 2,000 species of fish.
