Explore what lies below the island of Lembeh on the east side of North Sulawesi. It is located in a quiet and romantic cove, with a volcanic black sand beach and an unbeatable view of Lembeh Strait. Nine stand-alone Bungalows and three Single Deluxe Rooms offer spacious accommodation with twin, king-size or single beds. The bright rooms all come with a view on a tranquil bay and Lembeh Strait, and include a minibar/fridge with drinks, snacks and a walk-in closet for your belongings. All Bungalows come with private sea view terraces, and the three Single Deluxe Rooms share common veranda. Right next to the pool you can find the Santai restaurant, from where meals will be served. True to Minahasa tradition, our delicious meals are cooked by chef Arifin and his team. Our palm-leaf covered lounge called "Sabar" sits right between the beach and the resort. Enjoy a simple cappucino as the waves lazily tumble down the black sand beach.

I had an amazing experience at Thalassa Dive Resort last summer! I was at the end of my journey and I found a peaceful, beautiful haven to wind down and rest. Although I am not a diver, the staff at Thalassa made me feel at home and went out of their way to make sure I got to do some snorkeling in the spectacular Bunaken National Park! Simone is a terrific manager and I commend her on establishing the Give Back program at the resort. The area is lucky to have such a community minded resort.

We didn't post reviews that often. Why now? Because Thalassa Dive Resort Lembeh deserves it. We have been there twice, wonderful experiences. The place and surroundings, so beautiful, the peace, the excellent personal service and the unforgettable diving. Every day we saw something new. But also just as important, fantastic villagers, so friendly, so welcoming. All this makes Thalassa Dive Resort Lembeh more than worth it. A third time. We hope so! Gerrit and Baukje

Came to Thalassa for my advanced open water certification. The resort in some ways has a rural, rustic feel about it, and the service of the staff is phenomenal. I especially loved how thoughtful they were with the food preparation and presentation and even accommodated my vegetarian diet! Diving was also phenomenal - I hope to go back one day.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Thalassa Dive Resort. It is a beautiful place, with wonderful accomodations. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the meals were outstanding. The diving is about the best in the world with beautiful coral and massive schools of fish. Also lots of turtles. We also snorkeled in the afternoons and were always reluctant to get back on the boat, it was so interesting.

My husband and I just came back from the Thalassa Dive resorts, we stayed at both the Manado and Lembeh locations. I would recommend Thalassa dive resorts to anyone in a heartbeat. While the Lembeh location is newer and more modern Manado is more authentic, but both were just outstanding in terms of food and staff. The diving was out of this world. Indonesian people are the sweetest on earth and they will go out of their way to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. Meals were varied with plenty of fresh fruit, veggies and local and vegetarian options. If guests had special requests, staff was more than happy to accommodate. Both locations have gorgeous pools but of course the highlight of the trip was the diving: in Manado, we enjoyed walk diving and many reefs (the best I have seen in our 25 years of diving) with big (so many turtles, it was insane) and smaller creatures as well as so many fish. Lembeh’s speciality was “muck diving” with many unusual and rare creatures cruising along the sandy bottom (frog fish and seahorses, otctopi, so many nudibranches, several small crab varieties among many others...) but the reefs in Lembeh were gorgeous too. I especially enjoyed the very knowledgeable guides who were so eager to find and show you all the different species (which are sometimes very hard to spot). There wasn’t a dive where we were not wowed. You read about it but it is truly unbelievable. Added bonus: boat staff take care of everything for you - equipment, rinsing, etc. They were so flexible with us and offered different trips tailored to our needs and wants. I highly recommend Bengka island as a dive site. Transfers from one resort to the other were so smooth as well. We just had a great diving vacation. Do make sure you bring some drops to rinse off your ears after diving, sometimes the water is not the cleanest around Lembeh. I was so saddened to have to cut my trip short by a few days because of the Corona Virus. I seriously worry about the Thalassa operation and hope they can pull through this crisis. They so deserve it. The owners are genuine and warm people, so dedicated to the local staff and the diving community. I wish them well and hope to come back soon to the resort.

Aw thanks! I wish you could have stayed a bit longer without all the logistics you had to go through, but at least you managed to get some wonderful dives under your belt. Stay safe, healthy and we will be here!
