You would have to search really hard to find a better dive resort anywhere in the world. This was our second visit. It just gets better! This is possibly the best run dive resort in the world. The dive guides are really top class.

We were referred to Lembeh resort from other divers we met in Dumagete. It is hard to believe it took so long to discover this diving gem. That said, what you have to know... This isn't beautiful coral head and wall diving. There are coral heads, not tons and tons and there are no walls in the straight. You have... More

This is our 4th trip to Lembeh Resort. I believe that is the most visited resort for us in the world, with Captain Don's in Bonaire coming in close with 3 visits. Lembeh Resort is the best for the accomodations, service, staff, diving and grounds. They do everything exceptionally great. For this trip, we were doing the Passport to Paradise... More

We are a UK family of three (daughter 15 YOA) living in Sydney who spend most of their vacation time on diving type holidays. This resort and dive facility was recommended to us by our PADI dive club in Manly, Sydney. Overall we had a wonderful experience during our week here. The accommodation was very good.

There's a reason we keep coming back to Lembeh, and Lembeh resort. On our fourth trip we had another wonderful diving experience. Everything about our stay was exceptional. The diving - of course this is what it is all about. Every time we return there are new critters and new diving experiences. We can't say enough about the dive guides... More

This was our third visit to Lembeh, and it is our favorite diving destination. It is located in Northern Sulewasi, Indonesia, just south of the Philippines. It is about three hours by plane from Singapore to the airport in Manado, from which you take a van and a short boat ride to the resort. The resort is in a beautiful... More

We stayed 11 nights at Lembeh Resort, and had a brilliant dive trip. From the personalised welcome and introductions to the managers through to the nightly turn down service in the bedrooms, there is a lot of personalised service. At various stages throughout our stay, Morten and Petra checked that everything was fine (well, it was better than fine!), and... More

The warmth and hospitality of our hosts at Lembeh Resort is unparalleled by any in the dive resort industry. Petra and Morten were the gracious hosts and point of contact, but we enjoyed the enthusiasm of the staff at every touch point, whether it was waiting tables, massage, or cleaning up rooms. There were special touches everywhere from "Welcome" spelled... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a boutique style resort tucked into a quiet cove on Lembeh Island and the resort is surrounded by lush tropical gardens. Our location means that we are only 5-20 minutes away from the majority of the amazing dive sites in the Lembeh Strait - often known as the Muck Diving Capital of the world! All our guest cottages include 24 hour electricity, en-suite bathroom with hot water, air-conditioning, king-size bed or twin beds, wardrobe, table and chair, dispenser for cold as well as hot drinking water, complimentary tea & coffee, mini-bar and electronic safe. Sitting on your verandah, you can enjoy beautiful sunsets nearly every day over the stunning North Sulawesi scenery. At any time of the day you can relax around our fresh water swimming pool and from the afternoon onwards you can visit out Spa where you can relax after a hard day of diving with a nice massage and also run a variety of land based excursions as well.We have 12 full time dive guides on staff, with more than 65,000 combined dives in Lembeh alone. We have very small group ratios, with a maximum of 4 divers to 1 guide. We have a full time Marine Biologist on staff, who assists our guests in identifying all the weird and wonderful critters of Lembeh Strait. We also have the only full time photo/video pro in the Lembeh Strait who teaches a variety of photo and video courses if you are interested in photography. He also has a large collection of rental gear, including point and shoot systems, DSLR systems, and HD video cameras. ... more   less
