If you are into underwater photography, then this is the place to go. I have travelled to many places in the world but I have never been to a place were everything is 100% right for underwater photographers. The owners are very good photographers themselves.

Couldn't possibly say enough good things about this resort. The owners are fabulous people, and it filters down to every aspect of the resort. Everyone was excellent and seemed to enjoy their jobs and it showed. Could not have been more pleased with our stay. Again everything was excellent food, accommodations, diving, service, all top notch. This place came highly... More

We were here with a group of underwater photographers. Best resort for such a group. Big cameraroom, 1 guide per buddypair, all the time you need to take that great picture. However, I was ill and then it's not the best resort to be in. It's small and you can't go anywhere else. Once the divers are gone, the resort... More

This dive resort is 100% for photographers, and those interested in Macro critters only. I'm putting this up here front and centre in case anyone is under any illusions! OK, that said, I will go back here every year given the opportunity. 2:1 guide - diver ratio. Very knowledgeable with eye's like hawks, every critter you ever wanted to snap... More

One of the best dive resorts for underwater photographers. The guide/ diver ratio is 1 to 2, which is more or less like a private guide experience. The boat crews are very helpful with the diving gear and familiar handling expensive photography equipment. The guides are some of the best you can come across. Most probably they can get anything...

We stayed a week at NAD-Lembeh. The diving was excellent! The service and amenities could not have been better. The staff were all friendly. The attention to detail was amazing. I have never seen a better example of hospitality. This was my first stay at any resort and my first travel outside of the US. So, I may not have... More

We had a wonderful time diving at NAD Lembeh. The diving was very good, and the guides even better in finding every critter on our wish list. The diver to guide ratio is 2 to 1, or one to one for me when my wife was taking a photography course with photographer expert Serge. The diving boats are great, equipped... More

This was my second visit to NAD Lembeh. As a well-heeled traveler for both diving and land-based travel, I am incredibly impressed by the attention to detail as well as the desire and willingness to make continuous improvements and additions to what is already a well-run operation. Many of NAD Lembeh's distinguishing features such as 2:1 diver/guide ratio, complimentary tea/coffee/water/fruit/biscuits,... More
