2nd trip to Lembeh. Some great dives, but the hotel + dive ops was not exceptional to say the least Manager of the resort is not friendly and thats hows in the atmosphere (compared to friendly atmosphere of Bastianos Bunaken, it is hard to think that they have any connection). No real atmosphere, which is quite unusual for a diving... More

Bastianos got a nice little spot on their own island in the Lembeh strait. Make sure to book a room with sea view and air con that doesn't stop every 6 hour. For baby divers that tried muck diving for the first time, we missed amenities outside of diving, like maybe paddle boards or kayak rental. Would loved to have... More

The only thing I didn't quite like about this property is the long climb up to the dining and rooms. Other than that the experience was excellent. All the staff were friendly and the buffet food was good. The manager took the time to know all the guests on the property and was very personable. Elrick was our DM through... More

What a great place to dive and stay. From the moment we're were picked up at the airport and our return to, we were greeted with smiles and good service, nothing was ever too much trouble and the manager Thomas is very attentive to the guests needs as is his offsider Jonathan. The resort is lovely with lots of bungalows,... More

I went to Lembeh Dive resort from 4th-6th April. Since it was still somewhat low season, there were few divers and much attention was given to guests. Special shout out to Wawu and Glaiza for the warm welcome and fun jests throughout the stay that made me feel right at home. WiFi was decent. Definitely better than Bastianos Bunaken. Meals... More

Two friends and I stayed here for 4 nights over the long Easter weekend. The price was very reasonable and I guess you get what you paid. The most inportant things to note are that the resort is on a hill and thus there are lots of stairs and the steps are very steep. Not a good choice if you... More

thank you very much for your respond. Tanks for the suggestions: such as installing more fans. All air conditions witch are replaced have an automatic re starter.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched idyllically on the west coast of Lembeh Island, overlooking the strait is Bastianos Dive Resort at Lembeh Island (then it's called Bastianos Lembeh). The key feature of Bastianos Lembeh is that it has surprisingly good facilities yet retains a very modest price. The resort has an elevated swimming pool and large open-air common room with superb sea views, free wi-fi internet connectivity, satellite TV and spa room - facilities one might expect from a mid- to high- budget resort and not one of such clear affordability. The rooms are also of a relative good quality, with Superior cottages that can be rented as air-conditioned or fan only, and Standard rooms for those looking for the cheapest deal. The cottages are stand alone properties for more guest privacy, whereas the Standard rooms are adjoining but close to the water's edge. The resort prides itself on its social atmosphere. It is a popular choice for regular divers just wanting to dive, have fun and meet people, not really for 'hardcore' diver photographers that want to do nothing but spend their time underwater. Divers will, however, appreciate our dedicated camera room and the well-appointed dive center complete with DIN/Int compatible tanks as well as nitrox and the full range of rental equipment. ... more   less
