We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lembeh Resort and diving with Critters@Lembeh. The attention to detail was great from both resort and dive operation. Food was wonderful, room was very comfortable, service was so gracious. Our 20 something kids enjoyed this spot as much as we did and the facilities are so nice, that even non-divers would enjoy this little...

Our third visit to LembehResort showed again the professionalism and caretaking of both resort as well as dive center staff. All persons involved gave us from the beginning the feeling of not only being welcomed, but part of the family. This time we did diving from a private boat and could select from all available dive sites as well as...

I'm not sure that I can really explain just how fantastic this place was. Overall, it's beautiful, with a gorgeous view. The rooms feel luxurious. The diving is incredible, if you love muck diving and looking for fantastic creatures. But what really made this place special for me was the staff, and that's saying a lot, because I'm rather introverted...

We had an amazing time at Lembeh Resort. Great muck diving and the rooms and service were incredible.

What better way to start a stay at a small but warm and friendly resort with the words Welcome spelled out on your bed? Unfortunately we had to disturb the greeting by letting the staff know that we needed twin beds instead of the large single bed. Our request was done shortly within the hour of our arrival. I don't...

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.
