We enjoyed our beachfront cottage; in these rooms you do share your front porch, although when we were there we were the only people in our section so had the porch to ourselves (with a nice view of the water and the ships going by)....More

I gave KBR 5 stars the last time I reviewed it in 2014 ( https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g680020-d555425-Reviews-Kungkungan_Bay_Resort-Bitung_North_Sulawesi_Sulawesi.html ), and, if I could, I would give it 6 this time around. The saying goes that it is difficult to improve on perfection, but KBR seems to have done...More

We returned for our sixth visit this September. KBR never lets you down, from the wonderful reception when we arrived from Bunaken to our serenaded departure and back home again. We stayed in the beach villa T6, which was just idyllic, close to the dive...More

Yes, a few steps from our beach front room is the great site for snorkling.

Hi KFC, I have emailed this resort 2 times with no response! Any idea how i can get in touch? I only emailed through their website, I guess i could email from mine but I shouldnt have to try so hard to get info from a reputable resort. You seem like the perfect advise giver for us. We are 1 adult 2 teen boys, we snorkel a lot, but only. We are going, via manado to Gorontalo( have you been?) and will want a few nights to see lembeh straits and revisit Tangkoko. We have been for 10 nights to Bunaken. I actually want to stay at Kungkungan Bay because of their easy, shallow calm house reef. is it true? I'm told by others that it would be pretty good for snorkelers, careful of jellyfish and stonefish, any advise? I know its muck, and most critters can only be seen with close ups in scuba gear, but shouldnt I be able to see some frogfish and other critters? Please give me your thoughts and advise. I can and will ask the resort eventually, if I decide to stop there. i wont go anywhere else because my assessment, for our needs and wants is def Kungkugan. Thank you so much in advance! Love the name (KFC)! jen from perth
