The massage is bliss.The pool is not scrubbed clean and has a bit of filth and it heavily chlorinated. The rooms are clean... More

We stayed at the resort for a week in November. The resort and dive operation are very well run. Rooms are clean and nicely appointed. The staff were all friendly and accommodating. They even sang and played music for us after serving dinner. Very enjoyable. Food was good with lot's of variety. The diving at Lembeh is something that every... More

i stayed in the resort in Nov 2013. The resort is clean and i opted for the basic room without air-con and cold water shower. Even though it was the cheapest accommodation available, the view was magnificent. The food at the restaurant was fantastic and everyday there was a different menu. Staff at resort were helpful and polite. Most importantly,... More

Bastianos is a real good place to stay and dive the muck of the Lembeh straight. Management and staff are very welcoming, helpful & friendly. The diving centre is well run with good guides with superb eyes for the macro stuff. We rented the diving gear: it's all good, well maintained and safe. Food is good, the pool has a... More

Let's make it clear, the rooms, food and location of this resort are great...but I had to rate it badly for the lack of professionalism concerning the dives and most of all, their scuba gear which was in very bad condition. My friends and I stayed 3 days in the resort and had issues with scuba gear the 8 times... More

We stayed at Bastianos in June. The managers Dave and Lauriane went out of their way to ensure we had a great time throughout our trip, and all the staff we met were really friendly. The accommodation is really nice, clean rooms with amazing views over the bay, really comfortable beds and I loved the bathrooms. The food was excellent,... More

Loved the place - its beautiful and well run. Dave the resort manager is great!!! I wished I could have stayed there for a week. The diving was splendid - but only if you are interested in macro stuff. But this is what Lembeh Straits is famous for. If you want to see pygmy seahorses, hairy frogfishes, nudibranches, bluering octopus,... More

I'm sorry to hear that you had some bad experiences at our resort I totally agree that having a driver representing Bastianos and being under the influence is completely unacceptable, unfortunately in this instance all our drivers were on leave being you arrived late at night on the 1st of January, which is a big celebratory evening in Indonesia.
