Travelers' Choice
Lembeh Resort’s secluded location on Lembeh Island ensures guests an exclusive and relaxing stay. Tropical gardens and exotic fauna form a natural backdrop while luxury and elegance come as standard. When you are not diving choose to relax poolside on the deck overlooking the ocean, take a walk around the beautiful gardens, enjoy the sunset with an evening cocktail or indulge yourself with a massage treatment at the spa. The Lembeh Strait’s sheer abundance of biodiversity and rare critters has led to it being named the “Critter Capital of the World” where every dive reveals countless “unique finds”. If you want to see the “weird and wonderful” and dive on the best muck diving sites in the world then the Lembeh Strait is the place to be. Critters@LembehResort offer highly trained and experienced Dive Guides, fulltime on-site Marine Biologists and a Photo Pro available for consultations and advice. Private Guide and Private Boat service is available on request.

Lembeh Resort created a magical vacation for me that I will never forget! While I love coming to Lembeh for the ultimate in macro diving, staying at Lembeh Resort was the ultimate in a diving-resort experience--both on land and in the sea:-)! Personalized customer service at the front desk and in the restaurant, as well as a housekeeping and groundskeeping staff who keep everything looking beautiful and so inviting, made my stay super special. Every evening I enjoyed listening to the chirping sounds of nocturnal creatures, including Tarsiers, who serenaded me during the evening hours. The soft breezes blowing through the trees outside my cottage that was nestled in the resort's hillside was so relaxing. Critters@Lembeh Resort dive center has the most amazing dive guides! Not only do they know everything about the fish and critters in dozens of dive sites along Lembeh Strait, but they are also well-versed in wide-angle and macro photography and provide hints and mentoring to help you take the best photos, which I so appreciated during my stay! The dive center offers a 1:1 dive guide upon request and availability, which I used and highly recommend! There is also a Backscatter Photo Center, so if there are any camera housing or strobe needs, or help with your photos during postproduction, there is someone there to help you in an instant! And, if you are looking for something to do on your off-gas day or have someone with you that does not dive, there are land tours and cooking classes available to help learn about the local flora, fauna, and culture. While all protocols were followed properly, I was still able to feel like I could forget the world of Covid and simply enjoy the tranquility of all that Lembeh Resort offers. Out of five possible stars, I give Lembeh Resort 10!

This resort is everything you need. Personal service, beautifully designed and furnished, ultra-professional dive centre, warm and welcoming dive guides, a small Backscatter gear shop, fabulous food, sounds of the forest, and of course CRITTERS galore! (And by far the best COVID protocols we’ve seen so far in Indonesia…) Our 10 year old newly-qualified diver son loved it, as did we. A true gem, highly recommended!

I was on a motor yacht and had generator issues and needed somewhere nice to stay. This property exceeded all my expectations, a real oasis of competency, service, attention to detail, good food and general excellence Beautiful established rain forest gardens, stayed in a fairly new water view cottage, pretty well perfect, modern decor, large room with a good layout , great bed and bedding , freezing a/c great view , spotlessly clean. Enjoyed the staff and management Top notch considering we are in the middle of the biggest crisis that has befallen the tourism business, I was only one of 3 guests but there was no obvious compromise to the service and experience As good a hotel as any I have stayed at really , definitely not some out of the way crusty dive lodge, Impressive

Spent 3 wonderful nights at Lembeh Resort as the 3rd leg of a dive trip. The average accommodations were small, but very clean and comfortable. The dive operation was superb and the dive guides were the best I've seen. At the end of each dive the guides write the scientific names of each of the key species pointed out on the dive on a dive slate, along with the dive site name of course. You can then photograph the slate so you have a record for each of your dives. The resort staff are very friendly and go out of their way to take care of your every need. The food was excellent and plentiful 3 times daily. There is a wonderful camera center for your photography gear, as well as a camera shop with a full-time pro to assist you. I would love to go back to this resort any time!
