Welcome to Janji Laut Hotel Resort and Scuba diving, Manado

Welcome to Janji Laut Resort

In Bahasa Indonesia, Janji Laut means “a date with the Ocean”.
This notion of “rendez-vous” is at the heart of our concept as Indonesia is a land where local people are always welcoming foreigners with a smile and genuine kindness.

The second meaning is “the promise of the Ocean”.
We hope that your stay will be an unforgettable memory of a well-honored promise.

Promise or Date, we are dedicated to make it an amazing adventure and a unique experience for you.

A large white water swimming pool covered with volcanic stones contributes to the relaxing and calm atmosphere of the garden.

We can pick you up at the Manado International Airport with our air-conditioned vehicle and taking you through the North Sulawesi countryside. After an hour and a half’s drive you arrive at Janji Laut Resort and will be served a welcome drink at our lobby, bar and restaurant.
Enjoy the view before going down to your room through the garden.
