Kungkungan Bay Resort (KBR to its friends and soon to be friends) is proud to be the resort that introduced the world to the now famous “Lembeh Strait”, acknowledged as the #1 destination in the world for Critter / Muck diving. KBR was the original resort in the Lembeh Strait and as such pioneered the diving. We were the first International Dive Resort to open our doors in North Sulawesi and KBR was the first resort in the dive industry to use “Muck Diving” as our main diving attraction. We do it better, and have done it longer than anyone.
We have been open since 1994, in 1995 people started looking for another location with diving comparable to the Lembeh Strait but to this day, none has succeeded. We have been compared to many but none have passed the test. Therefore, we have concluded that the Lembeh Strait, which is located in the center of Bio-Diversity for the World’s Oceans, is truly a unique place with one of a kind diving and as such, deserves a “Bucket List” designation on your places to dive list.
Being the first resort in Lembeh gave us some unique advantages, the most notable being our location. KBR is located in its own Private Bay, with year-round calm waters. We are isolated from the sounds of Indonesian Village Life which can be intrusive at times. Our Bay is also home to the only, fully protected and exclusive dive site in North Sulawesi which has been guarded by KBR for the last 20 years (and it shows). Only our guests can dive and snorkel our beautiful house reef. Don’t miss it, plus it’s free!

We have been at KBR the third time now and again have been surprised by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. This includes expressly the staff of the restaurant, the dive-center and the room-service.
It is without saying that the food, quality as well as the choice has bee again outstanding. Any reasonable wish has been fulfilled.
The dive sites are as they have been since ever, not deteriorated by too many guests. In the meantime more than 10 new resorts have tried to be in competition to KBR with different concepts, but KBR is still the “Original” and copies are never as good as the originals.
We have come around the world of diving quite a bit and still like to come to North Sulawesi to see our friends of Kungkungan Bay Resort again.
Also this time will not be the last. We will come again, may even be soon.
Many thanks to Enal (dive guide), Chika and (V)Fiska (Servants) just to name a few having taken care of us during our stay in April 2017.
Many Thanks again
Antje and Roland

Diving release my stress. I’ve been diving in several places and staying in various types of resort, but..man.,, you know what.. Kungkungan Bay Resort (KBR) amazed me with their great hospitality. Love the smiles from all of the staff. I’m so thrilled with their welcoming atmosphere. Food is really really tasty. Amazing dive sites and very professional dive guides. The crew is so helpful. If you need help or anything, just say the word…

I really enjoyed my stay a KBR … one of the best dive resorts I’ve experienced! Very well-run, the staff are so friendly and accommodating,and the food is so very good. The dive guides are amazing — I have no idea how they can find & remember all of those critters! The dive operation runs very smoothly, with no heavy lifting for guests and yummy surface interval treats. The elevated cabins are very comfortable — it’s wonderful to be so close to the water. Services at the spa were a perfect way to recover from all the great diving & dining. KBR is a true gem and definitely worth the effort to get there!
