Lembeh Resort is the friendliest resort we've ever been to. Management and staff know you by name from the minute you arrive and truly care about your experience. Beyond the friendly service, the food and accommodations are also excellent as well as every aspect of the dive center. Our only regret was not staying longer.

I have been diving for 40 years, and have traveled all over the world. This is my favorite dive resort! The staff is top notch and the facilities are a dream for the underwater photographer. The adjacent "critters at Lembeh" dive operation blends seamlessly with the resort!

Lembeh Resort: A truly first class experience! Tucked away in a little lagoon it boasts very nice views of the mountains and volcanoes of northern Sulawesi.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a boutique style resort tucked into a quiet cove on Lembeh Island and the resort is surrounded by lush tropical gardens. Our location means that we are only 5-20 minutes away from the majority of the amazing dive sites in the Lembeh Strait - often known as the Muck Diving Capital of the world! All our guest cottages include 24 hour electricity, en-suite bathroom with hot water, air-conditioning, king-size bed or twin beds, wardrobe, table and chair, dispenser for cold as well as hot drinking water, complimentary tea & coffee, mini-bar and electronic safe. Sitting on your verandah, you can enjoy beautiful sunsets nearly every day over the stunning North Sulawesi scenery. At any time of the day you can relax around our fresh water swimming pool and from the afternoon onwards you can visit out Spa where you can relax after a hard day of diving with a nice massage and also run a variety of land based excursions as well.We have 12 full time dive guides on staff, with more than 65,000 combined dives in Lembeh alone. We have very small group ratios, with a maximum of 4 divers to 1 guide. We have a full time Marine Biologist on staff, who assists our guests in identifying all the weird and wonderful critters of Lembeh Strait. We also have the only full time photo/video pro in the Lembeh Strait who teaches a variety of photo and video courses if you are interested in photography. He also has a large collection of rental gear, including point and shoot systems, DSLR systems, and HD video cameras. ... more   less
