The accommodations are reasonable but the service, food, and diving support are the best. We arrived in late April and after a year had forgotten the heat and humidity but once we got in the water remembered how wonderful this place is. Thank you Morten and Lauren and Sacha and especially Johe and Opo Kecil. For allowing us to feel... More

I had an amazing holiday at Lembeh Resort a couple of weeks ago. I am still reminiscing about that holiday. My only regret is that it was so short! The accomodation, the food, and the diving were superb. But more impressive than anything was the service. From the moment I got off the boat I was particularly well taken care... More

I have to respond to a Trip Advisor review posted that gave the resort a poor rating! This is totally out of order as many guests like us book up to twelve months in advance to stay at great resorts like this!

My family and I was very angry, daze and confuse that Lembeh Resort staff refused us entry to their restaurant for lunch. It was pouring rain like cats and dogs and the journey with a local boat was not as pleasant as it seem. We were having our holiday in Manado, we drove all the way from Manado to Bitung... More

Rooms are spacious, clean and well functioning with a spectacular view over Lembeh strait.

First the guides. The maximum number of divers per guide is 4. We had several guides during our 10 day stay in March, and all of them were first-rate critter finders. There might be 2 groups of divers on your boat (or 3 if somebody has a private guide), and the guides share their finds, so sometimes it's like having... More

I wanted to see what unusual, rare, natural area I could find in Indonesia. Lembeh was just the ticket! Lembeh is perfect for experiencing muck diving, something I had never done before, or even heard of!
