Dearest Juud, Roel and all the staff, especially Maksi, Kres, sam, Ricky, Suban “Bakro” and Maria. The operation has been so helpful and kind. The food from chef Marthin and John and Revol has been the best we’ve had on our many dive trips aboard. The accommodation is excellent, each room is charming and we love the garden especially the view of the sea and the island of Manado Tua. We can fully recommend the food.
The IKAN BAKAR, MIE GORENG and krupuk.
As for diving what can we say? Fantasic citters in every shape and form. Huge numbers of turtle, pipefish, shrimps, the MIMIC OCTOPUS! With pilot whales and a brief glimpse by some divers on the shy Dugong made the dives hand out!
The boat is great as is he dive centre, but the best bit are the magnificent dive guides.
Safe, clean efficient diving with plenty of experience. WE WILL BE BACK!
That is for sure. It looks like one page is not enough…. We enjoyed everything.
We envy you as you live in a dives paradise with a guest team to back you up. Many thanks and remember that the mad cup team will be back.
With love and best wishes,

In 1 word: EXELLENT! Thanks to the dive guides: Maxi, Frenky, Suban, Kres, Sem, Ricky (who is a true artist by the way). Thanks to Marthin, John, and Revol. After having lived in Thailand & Malaysia, the wonderful food gave us a real coming home feeling. Thanks to all other staff and not to forget Maria who guided to the volcano and back. We have seen many places under water, but Manado is truly special. All credit goes to treasure the environment. The diving, the view, the garden, the food, all memories that will last forever. I’ll cherish the Coconut Man that Frengki made for me keep looking for all the crazy small stuff under water, the guests can find the big ones themselves. ha ha ha!
Roel, het was echt heel leuk je weer te zien, en dat na 30 jaar! Gewedig om oude schoolherrinneringen op te halen. Juud en jij doen het hartstikke goed en wij weten dat het echt niet altijd makkelijk is in het buitenland.

Thank you so very much for enabling me to become FAT!! All of the food was delicious. I liked the spinach soup, the Thai soup, all of the fresh salads, the prawn-basil salad, and especially the grilled snappers. Thank you for you careful preparation of our lunches as well…but where else will I find “ Yellow submarine?!! Most of all, thanks for your warm smiles and caring pride in your works to make Lumbalumba a place that people want to visit again and again….

I’ve been on many dive vacations and this one was hands down the past. A truly wonderful, relaxing time.
