Kungkungan Bay Resort Sulawesi

Kungkungan Bay Resort Sulawesi

Kungkungan Bay Resort 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!

KBR is the only Sea level Luxury Resort in the Lembeh Strait, 16 of our 17 rooms are Waterfront. It is nice to have an easy stroll back to your room between dives, no sitting on a boat all day, no steps to climb up and down, or waiting in line for the Electric Car to give you a ride up to your room. We have a saying at our resort: “The only climbing you will do at KBR is back into the boats after a dive or up the stairs to Capt. Billy’s Bar for a cocktail”, it’s on the second floor.


KBR’s other facilities include our Full Service PADI dive center complete with Camera Room, Equipment Rental, Instruction and we have NITROX from our “Membrane System”. Enjoy Lembeh’s only Waterfront Infinity Pool, which is also home to our Tepi Laut (Seaside) Day Spa. You can choose from our many Tours to some of North Sulawesi’s biggest attractions to add some culture to your stay. Stay with us and you will see why a trip to KBR is truly a complete vacation!
