The dive guides find everything and everything including flamboyant cuttle-fish eggs! Lots of amazing critters, probably the most interesting and bio-diverse place I have ever dove and I have over 1000 dives on 4 Continents. I cant wait to come back and dive more over the black sands.

Everything was excellent. Got free room upgrade upon arrival. Had virtually the whole place to ourselves most of the time (late December 2015). On some of the dives me and my partner had 4 guides to ourselves. The guides and boat crew are top notch and take excellent care of your camera equipment (as if it were their own). Hot...

Thank you very much for the nice review. We are glad that you were happy with all aspects of our service. From the easy booking system, to the great breakfast to the room and spa.

The service and friendliness was excellent.Room well maintained and restaurant still as good as ever.The diving was amazing with really competent guides.You are asked for your 'wish list' of critters you want to see and a lot of effort is spent on making this happen even though it is unpredictable.We will be back.

Actualy enjoyed my stay. Awesome diving spots for critter. The room is clean. But i saw a huntsman spider about the size of my palm inside the room. And the service there (diving and tours) are pricey. Overall its okay, not bad for a diving resort.

Arriving at Manado Airport was actually pleasantly surprising, especially late at night. We took a long drive down to the Resort which is a little nerve racking when you have never been to this part of Indo before, and are being escorted there in the dark. Low and behold, we woke up in paradise. Kungkungan Bay Resort is almost indescribable...

I came here after work with my colleagues who wanted to show me this beautiful resort and I was certainly impressed not only with the beautiful facilities, attentive staff, but the whole place. They have these beautiful wooden cottages on stilts overlooking the Lembeh Strait. Their diving facility was impressive and they have classrooms on the beach where you can...

Thank you very much for the nice review. Our house reef is a great site to combine the beautiful coral, muck and some rubble. Not only you can sea lion fish, but it is a home of a few giant frogfish, some coral octopus, even the rare blue ring octopus. We hope we had the chance to take you diving...

Kungkungan is a great place to stay. The bungalows are clean, spacious and well equipped. The staff is really very friendly and helpful. The food is very good and diverse.

This review is more about the resort than the dives. Lembeh has been and continues to be a fascinating destination for muck diving, so there really is no need to review the dive sites.
