Kungkungan Bay ResortBitung

Kungkungan Bay Resort, or KBR, is nestled on the site of an old coconut plantation on the North Sulawesi coast of Lembeh Strait. Located on the sunrise side of the peninsula, the beautiful view encompasses rugged Lembeh Island and the smaller Serena Island. It is about 60 minutes by car from Manado airport.
The resort was specifically designed to achieve a pleasing aesthetic effect with minimum impact on the environment. By using local materials and traditional architecture and adding western style bathrooms and amenities the resort reflects the local Minahasan culture, while providing international standards of comfort, convenience, safety, and privacy.

KBR has 17 luxurious sea facing rooms in 4 categories: Beachfront Cottage Suites, Beachfront Traditional Houses, Beachfront Villas and Hillside Villas and an Owner's Suite. All cottages and villas are beachfront (with one exception) and just steps away from the water's edge. Rooms are very spacious and offer queen beds, ceiling fans, air conditioning, mini bar, coffee/tea facilities, sitting area, large bathrooms with walk-in shower and hairdryer and a veranda. Tastefully furnished with plenty of natural woods, all rooms are very welcoming.

The popular Beachfront Cottage Suites are duplex units which share a common veranda. For most privacy, guests can stay in the freestanding Traditional Houses or Beachfront Villas.
Kungkungan Bay Resort's distinctive over the water restaurant building has become a local landmark for Lembeh Strait. The restaurant also serves as a social center and entertainment area. The resort features also an air conditioned bar, swimming pool with swim-up bar, TV lounge as well as a lending library.

Food at Kungkungan Bay Resort is plentiful and of the highest quality. The menu features both local Indonesian and Western Cuisine. Breakfast and lunch are served buffet-style to get you back on the dive boats sooner. Dinner time is whenever you are ready and dinner is always chosen from their extensive a' la carte menu. Food is available 24 hours a day, with a limited menu after 10pm. Weather permitting, delicious BBQ/Indonesian Buffets are often held around the infinity pool.

Some food and beverage items are hard to get in this part of the world, but KBR have a good supply of ice-cold beer (local and imported) and wine from Australia, and of course offer tropical drinks with local fruit juices and rum. Drinks can be either ordered at the restaurant or the pool bar.

KBR runs a fabulous spa which will pamper you while not diving. This exciting addition offers a full range of traditional Indonesian spa treatments for your relaxation and wellbeing.

The KBR Dive Shop is located on the resort's premises.
Apart from eating, diving and sleeping it is also possible to arrange for local tours such as the Minahasa Highlands or Tangkoko Jungle, a visit to the Bitung markets or a Manado city tour. The friendly reception staff will assist you, with a smile.
