My wife and I spent three nights at Kalinaun Resort which has only 4 bungalows. We were the only guests and will remember this for ever. Located one hour from the airport, the resort is planted on a beautiful beach with gorgeous sunrise and sunset. The two italian brothers (Roberto and Alessandro) and Olivia welcome you literally to their home with a mixed of mediterranean and indonesian warmth. They even speak French. The food is excellent and abundant. They bake their own bread and buy fish daily from local fishermen. The rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated. When it came to diving in Lembeh the underwater photographer, in other words the guest, dictates the pace based on the dive objectives. Just let Alessandro know what you are looking for and he will find it and wait for you to take the best shot ever. We will go back there with the kids next time for a long weekend from Singapore.
