We have shut down since mid-March 2020 and we are maintaining the resort with just a skeleton crew of staff . We are all healthy, nobody is experiencing health problems due to this crisis and we all had two vaccinations. The last months we have been working hard to get the resort back in operation and currently everything is is in tip-top condition and we will be open up again for business by the end of October 2021.

We have received our CHSE certificate.
CHSE stands for Clean, Health, Safe and Environment.

Resorts and hotels receive this certificate when complying with the CHSE standards. A government team inspected us in September and we passed with an excellent 97% score!

There was a peak of COVID-19 infections in July 2021, mainly in the densely populated parts of Java. In Manado cases did rise but not as much as in other areas. This was probably due to the high vaccination rate in North Sulawesi. In October about 80% of the population received at least one jab, but many already two.


Welcome to Lumbalumba Resort!

Are you looking for a small resort with a grand design?

Lumbalumba Resort is an informal, small and comfortable dive resort in Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.

With no more than six luxurious chalets (9 rooms), we offer a familiar and flexible atmosphere with the personalized attention you are looking for.

Though small if you look at the amount of rooms we have, our design is grand. Located on a 3.5 hectare mountain slope surrounded by lush botanical gardens, we also have one of the most spectacular views you can find in Manado.

”Lumbalumba Diving” is a complete resort with own accommodation, excellent cuisine, bar, infinity pool, dive center on private jetty and custom built dive boats.

Free wifi is available throughout the resort. Spa treatments are arranged on request.

“For us, you are not just another tourist. For you, we are not just another dive resort”.

Our philosophy is simple:

We can only survive when you are satisfied. That is why we choose to be small. That way we are able to give you the extra service you are looking for.

The spectacular and world famous diving reefs of Bunaken Marine Park are all around us. That is a present from mother nature. The rest we do.

Not just diving!

Although diving and snorkeling in Bunaken are the main activities at Lumbalumba Diving, we have more to offer such as,

  • Cultural land tours
