I was here for a week in October and there is very little negative to say about the place. The diving was great, the crew faultless, and overall the dive side of the Lumbalumba experience was lovely. We even saw a dugong during a dive which was a first for me! The resort owner, Roel, was a very likeable gentleman, with an endearing sense of fun, full of energy, and very capable: the resort's very existence is proof of that. As for the resort itself, it is set on a hillside so there are a lot of big steps which I hated because Im not as fit as I could be. There is a central bar/restaurant area which is comfortable and has lovely views over the water, the perfect way to have breakfast. The evening buffet was some of the finest cuisine I've ever tasted, without exception. This was accompanied by Roel's music collection, which was the source of many a lively discussion and much laughter between the guests! I would say that my accommodation was functional. The new beds were very comfortable and the bathroom had everything you would need, but it wasnt the kind of room you would spend time relaxing in. However, on a dive holiday you want to be in the water, not in your room so this was never an issue. Overall this was a lovely week and I would recommend Lumbalumba to anyone without hesitation.
