Pros: Nice and surreal place-- room overlooks the sea and a volcanic mountain.. picturesque! Food was great and staff were very friendly Diving with Eco divers was great too!! Did a wall dive and saw so many beautiful corals and fish. Cons: Definitely a distance away from the airport

Was a little worried about visiting this resort given the other reviews, so went with low expectations and was treating it as a transit stop to Raja. Was very pleasantly surprised at how helpful the staff were, breakfasts excellent, lunches and dinners good even though the menu was limited, it was all freshly prepared. Two days spent diving - amazing... More

We arrived in Manado at 1:30 pm on Friday afternoon and our flight on to Sorong was at 6 am on Saturday morning. We wanted to stay near the airport but not at one of the Manado... More

Were promised a lovely resort for a 12-day stay in Dec 2011, but the water and beach were very dirty, there were no bar or amenities during the day! After negotiation, we moved to another resort and they promised to refund us USD1.5k. This was in December. It is May 2012 and they have been delaying the refund. First they... More

I stayed there right after I had an excellent experience at a dive resort next door. I had to move there for an office function. The place is pretty large and has a lot of green landscape. Walking from one place to another within the resort could be quite tiring, especially under the hot sun. The room looked nice at... More

I would like to share my recent experiences with everyone intending to go there: OVERVIEW: Kima Bajo is not for the elderly. Good for families or couples. There is no nightlife, so evenings will be long and dry. Luckily for cable television programs and aircon available. WEBSITE: The website is not update and hasn't been for quite awhile. Therefore information... More

Stayed here in Aug 2011 for 2 weeks with the family and had a great time. Out of the way and back to basics whilst still having the important amenities for the family. Stunning location and nice and quiet. Coupled with the professional and friendly dive centre makes for a great holiday location. World class diving here and round the... More

I've been in Kima Bajo at december 2011, just for one night, coming from the opposite part of the town, and I needed to be at airport very early in the morning. This resort is very close to the airport and located in a wonderful area with a lot of trees and a wonderful view on the Bunaken National Park.... More

During my 3 week stay in Indonesia in 5 hotles this was the only one offering such poor service for the price. Do not stay here if you can avoid it. My daughter and I stayed at the resort having just spent a week at the nearby Lembeh Bay Resort. The price difference was $100 more at Kima, but the... More
