We were here before. Then also we had such good experiences that we decided to come back. Care free and superb diving, beautiful setting of the resort, high quality and very tasty meals, environmental awareness, small groups, wonderful hosts and very friendly, knowledgeable and fun loving local staff. Also other guests here are also regular customers. Echt een plek om... More

We can't say we have seen a dive resort that is operated better than Lumba Lumba as the proprietors Roel and Juud run everything smoothly like clockwork. This is our second visit to this resort. The diving experience was great as usual - supported by a knowledgeable and friendly staff. Most folks would find that the freshly prepared food by... More

We travelled as a couple with our 1,5 year old. We could not have enjoyed our stay more. She was welcomed with open arms (some places at Bunaken do not take kids) and we all enjoyed our room, the food, the best dive boat I have seen during 4.5 months in Asia. The owners really create a delightful atmosphere and... More

I went with 8 of my friends to Lumbalumba Diving, and I personally had probably one of the best diving holidays ever. The main thing is that they put in so much effort in making your dive experience a wonderful one. From taking care of your equipment (all will be labelled), cups and meals on boat (also labelled) to the... More

We had 2 amazing days of scuba on the wall reef an hour boat from the dive shop. The trip was a complete success as we lounged on... More

My family and I spent five days at Lumbalumba and we loved it. The SCUBA team was professional and experienced and the diving was first rate. They were able to accommodate the fact that we were diving with kids on some dives. The food was great and accommodations lovely. A tranquil place catering to those who want to enjoy great... More

If I had to sum this place up with one word, I simply would say 'WOW'...... Owners Roel and Juud have created this simply stunning place to stay. Situated outside of the city, their hotel was surrounded by plush botanical gardens, over looking the ocean and volcano. The chalets are an older style, extremely clean, all with breathe taking views.... More

The rooms are clean, spacious, big beds, with terrace and hammocks, fans and ac. Food in the restaurant is really excellent. The garden was even more beautiful and the staff is very friendly and...

First time visit to Lumba Lumba Diving Resort, and it turned out to be an extremely enjoyable experience. We flew from Shanghai to Manado via Singapore. The entire experience, from the moment we landed in Manado was fantastic. From the beauty and tranquility of the resort surroundings, the new friends we made, the food, and of course, the diving -...

Back again for the ninth year. Still new things to see and people to meet. Improvements on the facilities are ongoing. The staff is as always, pleasant and accommodating. Other guests, more traveled than I, have good comments also. A total package of Diving, resort accommodations and local culture.
