We have just finished a one week stay at Lembeh Resort and couldn't be happier with our choice. Both the resort and the dive operation met all of our expectations with personalized attention to anything we needed. Everyone there was extremely friendly and helpful, and we especially enjoyed having meals with Ana and Miguel who manage the resort and Lauren... More

I stayed at Lembeh Resort for a week in March and was extremely impressed with the resort and its associated dive centre, Critters@Lembeh. The diving is excellent, obviously focussed on the speciality of the Lembeh Strait - diving for strange benthic animals on a variety of unglamorous environments - sand, rubble, seagrass and patch reef. While this doesn't offer the... More

All reviews are passed around internally as our staff enjoys knowing their hard work and dedication is appreciated. Perhaps this review will be framed! Thank you again and we hope your next visit again exceeds your expectations. More

We stayed at Lembeh Resort for 5 nights last July. We probably made our best dives since we got certified in 2005! The numbers of creatures we've seen are just insane! Check the Resort website and see! The dive teams that operates at Lembeh are well trained and always on schedule. Almost all dive sites are within 5-10 boat rides,... More
