I have just left Lumbalumba Diving after spending nine days there. I was also there last summer and this is the first time that I have ever visited a resort more than once! This place is special.
From the moment that you arrive you are made to feel like part of a family. The cottages are beautiful, the food is delicious and the people are the friendliest that I have ever met. The owners Roel and Juud dine with guests every night and go to a great deal of trouble to give everyone a wonderful experience.
My husband and I are divers and we went diving everyday. The dive crew are lovely and they simply cant do enough for you. The boat is spacious and the lunch is great. The diving groups are very small and the crew are experts at finding amazing underwater creatures. My personal favourites are turtles and the crew knew just the sites to take me to...I saw ten turtles on one dive!!
If you dont want to dive or you have a partner that doesnt dive then there is still plenty to do. There is a beautiful swimming pool and trips can be arranged to local spots such as the volcano or Manado town.
I would recommend this place to anyone. I now count all of the people at Lumbalumba as true friends and I call it my second home!
