Every time we return it gets better. In the 15 months since our last visit a new luxury suit has been added, a new spa has been built, the restaurant and reception areas have been refurbished and a programme of replacing and refurbishing the cottages is well underway (and amazingly this is being done without any disruption to the guests)....

Can you really return to a place and have it be as good, if not better than the first time? If you're going back to Lembeh Resort it CAN! We were here a year ago, and on this trip decided to head to Raja Ampat and brought some friends. Since we had to overnight in Sorong anyway we decided to...

We've been diving in Lembeh Straight a number of times and each time stayed at Lembeh Resort and dived with their operation, Critters at Lembeh. Each time the resort has gotten better. The food is great, accommodations outstanding and the resort is beautiful. Lembeh is one of, if not THE best destination for critter (Muck) diving.

I went to Lembeh Resort with my 12-year old daughter the first week of April, 2017. The resort was recommended to me by a good friend. I have been living in Indonesia for the past 22 years, and am very familiar with most dive resorts around the country, but this was my first time to Lembeh. I gotta say the...

We almost never repeat a dive resort (there are more than one lifetime of places to dive!); but we loved Lembeh so much last year that we decided to return; we're glad we did! A caveat is that Lembeh would not be my recommendation for a non-diver. It is absolutely beautiful, but it's small; has no beach, and is enclosed...

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...

We came to Lembeh for the world famous muck diving. Critters at Lembeh Resort was a perfect place to stay. Morton & Petra made sure we had whatever we needed...very accommodating!

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...

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
