We had an amazing experience with Lumba Lumba both above and under water. Roel and his team went above and beyond to provide the best service and made our stay all the better. The rooms were perfect- private, spacious, and clean with great views. The pool and grounds were spectacular. We spent every afternoon at the gorgeous pool and the...

We always have a great time here. The dive operation is tip top, food is great and the people warm and friendly. Dive guides are very sharp and safe. The dive boat is well designed and organised. Never too many divers. Usually two to a guide Love this place!

LumbaLumba provided a fantastic all round holiday experience. This small resort provided a level of service and attention to detail that is second to none. We stayed for six days in April 2017. We combined diving with local tours which were organised and managed by LumbaLumba. The resort has its own dive boat (catameran) which is spacious, comfortable and very...

My wife and I spent 10 days at the Lumba Lumba Diving resort in September 2016. It greatly surpassed all of our expectations. The owners Roel and Juud were just wonderful - they are so passionate about diving, the environment and their resort and made us feel so welcome. The staff at the resort were also exceptional and made us...

We stayed with lumbalumba for 4 nights. The experience was far beyond our expectation which we formed based on the reviews and their website. This place is under-evaluated and should have be given a higher score. We will definitely stay here when we do Manado again. Location: a bit distant from the downtown so the resort is quiet and peaceful....

It was just the most fantastic dive holiday we have ever done. The accommodation was fabulous! The meals were absolutely delicious and were all cooked by local staff. The resort dive centre is small but well equipped and well run. All the staff were locals and they were faultless including diving centre, except the owners Roel and Jute. Our dive...

I've been diving all over the world for 28 years and diving with Lumba Lumba in Bunaken Marinepark was exceptional last week. The reef is pristine and the service with the dive team and resort is seamless. Every night for beers around the bar and full service dinner feels like a personal dinner party with the owners. So many interesting...

This small resort deserves all the credits it gets. I have been to this area before, but this place outclasses them all and it is the only resort I have been back to visit again. To summarize: attention to detail is there and the operation is flawless. The diving: extremely well organized. Customers have a say in where to go,...
