i stayed in the resort in Nov 2013. The resort is clean and i opted for the basic room without air-con and cold water shower. Even though it was the cheapest accommodation available, the view was magnificent. The food at the restaurant was fantastic and everyday there was a different menu. Staff at resort were helpful and polite. Most importantly, they were accommodating and went the extra miles to meet customers' needs. A important note, the staff seem to enjoy working in the resort and they sing and dance and there seems to be a genuine party mood. The Swiss manager was very attentive and patient. The dive guides and dive crews were experienced and helpful. Well done! Keep it up!
- 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
