I don't normally review a Hotel on return visit, often seems disappointing second time around. However Lumbalumba once again amazed us and surpassed expectations. From welcome at airport this was a perfect trip. We stayed a week with full dive package, couple and adult children. We stayed in the family villa which has 3 seperate ensuite rooms. Spacious, well appointed,... More

We stayed here for a week and were very happy. The accommodation is not luxurious but very clean and comfortable. WIFI is a bit slow but reasonable given the remoteness. It is free. Aircon works well. Those with mobility issues should ask for the rooms overlooking the pool rather than the further more expensive rooms with better views. The pool... More

We were looking for a relaxed diving holiday and Lumbalumba delivered. The diving at Bunaken was good as expected . The dive boat is very comfortable and the lunch menu is much wider than on our last visit. The addition of curtains on the boat was good if sun protection is needed. Our dive guide was excellent to. As were... More

We have enjoyed 3 nights and 4 days in Lumbalumba in our first trip to Manado. This is a "Diving Boutique", ideal for people that look for a personalized experience diving in Indonesia. This also means that the attention is dedicated to people that is amateur and also for expert divers. The resort doesn't offer anything else but a scuba... More

Though it was our fourth time here, nothing had let us down as soon as we landed at Manado. Worth to mention the facilities and interior of Manado airport has improved a lot since our last visit in 2014 perhaps due to the new presidency- I don't know. Anyway, the whole feeling was just like being back home as soon... More

It is not often that you arrive at a place that makes you feel that you belong there, rather than just passing through. The LumbaLumba resort has been build and is managed with incredible attention to quality, cleanness, service and beauty. And yes, those are qualities that we in the Netherlands consider to be of critical importance. Atmosphere is cosy... More

I have never been much of a tripadvisor follower in terms of ranking as I believe many resorts have their own charm any ways. But I couldn't resist to give full praise to the Lumbalumba Diving resort in Manado. Main reason why we booked there was the size of the resort. They have six bungalows with 9 rooms which is...

A resort with functional rooms or chalets that can accommodate from travelling by yourself or with kids/teenagers. It is run more like a homestay rather than a resort in a sense, the owner would expect or appreciate if you would turn for dinner at a specific time and they too will sit to dine and chat with you. It could... More
