This is a tight, luxury operation, focused largely around some of the world's best diving. We ended a monthlong overland trip across Sulawesi here and it was a great decision. This place has it all - outstanding diving with unbelievable muck-dwelling creatures, knowledgeable and hawk-eyed dive guides, powerful and spacious boats, great food that includes both Indonesian and Western fare...

The resort picked me up at the airport and transferred me to the island (90 min.). The food was spectacular! Accommodations were clean, well air-conditioned, and the grounds were beautiful. Dive guides were excellent, no more than 4 people in a group, often less. Guides were very knowledgable and willing to find the creatures you are looking for. Camera room... More

As a diving/ non-diving couple we were pleasantly surprised with this resort and the combination with the "critters" dive outfit. Great rooms, good food, nice excursions to the mainland where we had the chance to see the monkeys and tarsiers and genuinely friendly staff. We'll definitely be back

We stopped by the Lembeh Strait on or sailing yacht, and we called several places seeking help in finding an anchorage, and also diving excursions. We found Lembeh Resort most helpful here, and are thoroughly pleased with our visit. They told us we could anchor in the bay near them, which we did. The diving was top-notch and the service...

We (young couple) stayed at the Lembeh Resort from May 30 - June 6, 2015, and enjoyed every second of our stay! From the very first moment we felt like among friends.

We have been diving since 2003, traveled to Indonesia six times, and have been to Lembeh Resort twice now. While it's taken a while to write this, we cannot recommend the resort, staff, and muck diving enough. We visited Lembeh in April of this year and, even with the occasional afternoon shower, enjoyed our diving immensely. Our dive guide, Sandro,... More
