The largest resort on the Togean Islands, Kadidiri Paradise is a popular crowd pleaser, with a splendid pier out front, but the rooms are aged and not really the best value in the archipelago.




While the property is large—it encompasses two stretches of sand, more waterfront and a lagoon at the rear—most the the rooms are in pretty tight confines, clustered to each side of the central restaurant and pier area. Rooms come in a number of configurations, from well-aged wooden bungalows with no view to speak of, through to oversized bungalows looking out over the sand, more still set on both sides of the pathway to Black Marlin and lastly, the deluxe option, stilted over the water.

Despite the range, none are particularly good value when compared to nearby Black Marlin or to the further-flung operations on the greater Togean Islands. Many of the bungalows are really showing their age, with a lot of damp, especially at the more affordable end of the stick.

The mid-priced rooms are of a good size though, making this a popular option for families. The beachside room we were shown was wood-finished throughout, with sufficient windows to let enough light in and to get a glimpse of the sand and water. Other rooms though, especially on the pathway through to Black Marlin, enjoy a far less expansive view.

Kadidiri Paradise is one of the few places on the Togean Islands which can be booked online through online travel agents—book online for better rates the friendly staffer who showed us around said. This, combined with their relatively large number of rooms, make Kadidiri a popular high season option, when many smaller places may be full. Likewise if you are arriving in peak season without a reservation, this can be a good possible option.

The pier here (“guests only!” a sign declares) is the classic jutting out into the blue affair, and while much of the coral is dead, nobody has told the fish and there is plenty of good and crowd-pleasing snorkelling around here. As with Black Marlin, Kadidiri Paradise is home to a popular dive school—between the two of them they account for much of the diving in the Togeans (aside from the properties on Una Una, of course).

The snorkelling is none too shabby.

This wouldn’t be our first choice on the Togeans and if you don’t mind the more isolated location, either Sandy Bay on Malenge or Island Retreat on Bomba are better options, especially for families. But if you want to be in the heart of the action, with a very reliable crowd of people in high season, then Kadidiri Paradise is worth considering—non-divers are welcome.
