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.

What a wonderful place! The people are sooo nice and I felt like home. I really enjoyed the diving. The divemasters are damn good spotters, so friendly and they do a good briefing before entering the water. My room was lovely and very clean. The food was delicious. A big thanks again to the whole Thalassa Team for being so kind and funny!

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!

It was really nice being greeted by Arjen as our transfer boat arrived into Thalassa Dive Resort Lembeh. The diving was excellent as expected and I was most pleased to see many Mimic Octopus, Wonderpus, Flamboyant Cuttlefish, as well as Mandarin Fish, Hairy Anglerfish and much more. The dive guides were very attentive to our needs and a lot of fun, especially once they understood the Aussie sense of humour. The resort itself is simple yet it caters to every need. All rooms are close by, the pool is refreshing and not over chlorinated. Each room is cool, clean and tidy, with ample power points if required. Each room also has a stocked minibar. The camera room is air conditioned and situated close by, with suitable power points at each bay. Meals are provided buffet-style and are very good. A highlight was the bbq night an the wood fired pizza night. Arjen runs a tight and fair ship, and has a winning rapport with all his staff and guests. Something to be aware of (and in no way impacts on my rating) is that the cove where the resort is situated, attracts a lot of unwanted plastics and rubbish that is dumped into the water from the nearby harbour. This is constantly cleaned up by staff on a daily basis and is disposed of properly, However it can be quite shocking when seen for the first time. The resort is doing everything in its power to not only clean up, but educate the local community, which appears to be a uphill battle. In conclusion: The Resort, staff and diving were all above my expectations. My only suggestion would be to have more reference material in the library, especially for such a unique place such as Lembeh.

Dear guest, Thanks so much for your review. You are correct about the beach, and I can tell you that it's cleaner than ever right now. This is in part because the winds have changed, but of course also because of our team constantly cleaning it up. That said, I'm happy it didn't affect you much. We currently have available all 3 volumes of the Reef Fishes of the East Indies, Nudibranch & Sea Slug Identification of the Indo-Pacific and Reef Creature Identification of the Tropical Pacific. More is always welcome! Thanks again, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with our cozy little resort.

When you arrive you see heaps of plastic, they cannot help it. After this it gets better. Spacious rooms, good aircon Shower needs some Tlc /vinager. Guides have good knowledge of the things to see. Boats old but adequate. Bar not up to standarts

Hi Peter, thanks a lot for your nice review. We are constantly looking for new ways to clean our beach, (we actually had local school kids come by for a beach clean up). I have taken up your feedback about the showers and we are tackling it regularly. As for the boats, two out of three boats are now completely revised and overhauled, with the third done soon. Our bar isn't up to standards because it's very difficult to get liquor in this part of Indonesia, but we're always happy to improvise. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again one day! Warmest regards, Arjen

Our trip was a combined deal with Thalassa Manado. Everything went so smoothly from our pickup, transfers and return to the airport. This resort was pretty much brand new when we were there. Everything was new and shiny and there was only another two guests there while we there so we felt very special as everything was about us. They offered three dives during the day and the possibility of night dives as well. The guides were great and new where to find all of the critters. Being Lembeh it is mainly muck diving so if all you want to see is pretty coral reefs this is not the place for you but most divers already know this. However Angel's Window is beautiful. All the staff were friendly and happy. There was no actual menu but the food was fresh and very tasty. Make sure you let them know if you have any dietary requirements as soon as you get there if not before. And then there is the rubbish. This is in no way the fault of the resort but it is heart breaking to see. While we were there, the winds came from the south, blowing the floating rubbish into the little cove where our resort was. The families from the near by village come everyday and clean and sort it all but as soon as the tide comes back in there is a whole lot of new rubbish on the little beach again. It just seemed never ending. Under the water the fish and critters make there homes in and around it but it has to be causing so much damage. I have read that the resorts in the area are trying to work with the locals and it is going to take a lot of work and a long time. I wish them all the luck they need.
