The hotel team is fabulous: warm, friendly, knowledgable, professional, and kind. The food was excellent and varied, and we enjoyed the daily culinary surprises that ranged from... More

This is our second time staying at the Lembeh Resort. We loved it the first time and felt the same way this time around. The resort is beautifully maintained. We had a lovely ocean view room with a balcony overlooking the water. The rooms could do with a bit of a face lift but I understand that it is planned... More

For me the best place to dive at the Lembestreet. A charming service and very helpful staff. At the modern DELUXE OCEAN VIEW COTTAGEs you have a beautiful view over Lembestreet. Perfect diving base with great dive guides!!! That's why we went there a second time!!

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
