We have spent 5 days at Lembeh resort in Aug 2015, mostly for diving and enjoying some good time. Everything exceeded our highest expectations, there was absolutely nothing to complain about (and, come on, we are French!!^^) Transfer from the airport was well organized, after a warm welcome we were shown the resort and explained everything we needed to know....

Had another wonderful visit to Lembeh Resort and Critters@Lembeh. The resort is beautiful from the rooms to the grounds to the restaurant. The staff are helpful, friendly, and genuine.

Just returned from a dive vacation and wanted to comment on resort and dive operation. The dive operation is the best one yet on our travels. They take care of everything regarding your equipment - even washing and drying at the end of your stay. Dive masters are excellent. They write the names of creatures underwater showing you and then... More

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
