Hello there gorgeous reader, we meet again. Finally. Thanks to everything that you’ve given so much attention to this blog even though I was such a lazy blogger in this case, no post for one week huh, WHAT?!. I am really sorry. I just came back to Manado last Saturday. I spent almost three weeks in East Kalimantan and it was really great holiday. Catching up with big families in the tiny little village where my dad had have raised and grown up and it was the big reason why I couldn’t take care of this blog, yap there’s no a proper internet connection there. We got to attend my cousin’s wedding as well, so we were as busy as you can imagine. On the bright side, I completely enjoyed living my life to its fullest with people who I care and love the most. I also had some time to hang out with some close friends when I went back to the town (Balikpapan). Eating like there’s no tomorrow, fall asleep comfortably without worrying about waking up early for school were two my ultimate holiday’s goals that needed to be stop now. I have to live healthier and start running like I used to do.
Enough with the explanation about my absence, now I am going to take you to one of best resorts in Manado. It’s called Villa Dahlia Resort, situated at Jalan Raya Tanawangko, no 289, Kalasey, Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia. 20 minutes from Manado City and about 45 minutes from Sam Ratulangi International Airport. I went there to attend my niece and nephew, Maxella & Mark’s farewell party with their elementary school friends.
If you want to blend with beautiful green garden and great ocean view here in Manado, Villa Dahlia is a good choice. You can see Manado Tua island and Bunaken island from here. Actually this resort was first built by diver in 2010 for happy divers who seek happiness in staying and diving. They offer highly-trained and experienced team lives for your diving experience. But it is more than that! They also serve the best food and room service as well. Diving, snorkeling and rafting trips can be arranged on site. Now is the time to try something new, something different, something better!

Maxella & Mark’s mom booked one room that day, too bad I didn’t manage to take some photos. All rooms are based on twin-share occupation and air-conditioned
individually. Each room has western-style bathroom. Each room completed with satellite TV, minibar, Wi-Fi, and even breakfast delivery. Villa Dahlia Resort is a beachfront property surrounded by natural landscapes. Don’t wait until it’s too late, book now :)
