Given its large number of rooms, it can be a first stop for those (like us) who arrive in high season sans reservation. Located on the same island as Lestari and Black Marlin, Paradise occupies the bulk of the real estate, with two longish stretches of beach bisected by a photogenic pier along with a lagoon at the rear. While there is a large reef directly offshore, much of it is dead, but nobody seems to have told the fish who continue to attend in great numbers -- snorkelling is best out and to the right when you have your back to the resort. Like Black Marlin next door, Paradise has a very active dive centre, but unlike Black Marlin there is no pressure whatsoever to dive. A vast range of lodgings are on offer -- from a small loft-cum-dorm above the dining room through to a quite fancy glass-fronted overwater bungalow. Rooms can be variable and some are definitely in need of either a very serious refurbishment, or a demolition and start-over. Damp, especially in the more shaded bungalows, is a big issue, and the bathrooms in the older rooms leave a lot to be desired. Staff try hard, with manager Elisabeth (daughter of the owner) excellent and obliging. When management is off the scene however (as was the case for the first couple of days of our stay) the wheels really do totally fall off here, which can lead to some frustrations. Food comes in generous servings in a communal setting and, while it could most definitely be better, by Togean standards it isn’t too bad. We had rats during the evening in our room here, though reports of rats right across the islands means we can’t be too critical of this.
