    Where to start...., I travelled alone and looked for something reasonable priced. With relative luxority though not over done but also not in the back packers leaque. What I found at Lumbalumba Diving exceeded all my expectations. The place is in one word "fantastic!", Small, with 12 guests they are full. The property is small in terms of accommodation but quite big in terms of size. It is over 3.5 hectare big of which most is beautifull landscaped botanical garden. There are small waterfalls with ponds, and a stroll through the garden is already a real treat. The resort is complete with bar, restaurant with excellent food and they have an amazing swimming pool with infinity effect and tiled on the inside with flagstones. The diving is the best I ever had. Ok, the reefs are there for any one but the difference was the guides they have at Lumbalumba and the boat. The guides know everything to find, speak good english and are very pleasent company. The boat is inboard powered, spacious and has a very convenient platform for easy in and out.
    Maybe I can find only one minus and that is that the resort looks way better then it looks on their web site. That one needs some updating....The resort lies on a mountain slope and if you have trouble walking it is maybe not the best place for you, all though you can also be driven to you room if necessary. The owners and managers are Roel & Juud. A Dutch couple who live already 15 years in Indonesia and build the place themselves. Every part from the stone jetty with harbor, dive center to the great accommodation, restaurant and pool. I can go on for hrs like this but have to stop now. But folks believe me. This is a place to go and actually hope not too many people will find out!

    Since one month I'm back from Lumbalumba - if I think about it it still warms up my haert and puts a smile on my face!! For the second time I've been there - and I'm sure it wasn't the last one! Excellent diving with an amazing Dive-Crew, beautiful food, friendly stuff, charming rooms with balconies with "the perfect view" and a lovely swimming-pool - all you need for relaxing and unforgettable holiday!! Juud and Roel and all the rest of Lumbalumba Crew you are tremendous and you're doing a great job! See you again in your Paradise! Big hug

    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!
