Just returned from a 10 day stay at Lembeh Resort. Everything about the resort and the dive center at Critters@Lembeh was outstanding. We stayed in the cliffside cabins which have a beautiful view and a wonderful balcony. The rooms are well appointed with fluffy towels, hot and cold water cooler and coffee and tea fixings which are refilled daily. The... More

I recently returned to Lembeh Resort, for a nine day stay, after a five year hiatus from my previous visit. Everything at the resort was as good, or better, than I remembered. Upon arrival, I was promptly picked up at Manado airport by the resort staff, for a two hour drive to Bitung Harbor, followed by a 15 minute boat... More

The image that comes to mind when trying to describe Lembeh Resort is reminiscent of pulling up to a gas station in the fifties (I am NOT that old just thinking about movies from that era!) when 4 guys would come out. One would clean your windshield, one would check tire pressure, one would check your oil and the fourth... More
