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! We stayed in a garden room in the original building, unit 19. It was spacious & clean. The decor was traditional Indonesian. The king size bed was very comfortable,...

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...

This was our second time in Lembeh (an not the last one for sure!). We chose this time the "Passport to Paradise" to experience more of what North Sulawesi has to offer as we fell in love with it 3 years ago. Coming back to Lembeh we were met with warm greetings and lots of smiles and familiar faces. Here...

We had an amazing time at Lembeh Resort. Great muck diving and the rooms and service were incredible. We were especially tickled by the little turn-down gift surprises and messages when we retired to our rooms for the night. Morten made a special effort to give a special treat to snorkelers and took my husband out for his first night...

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...

We had a wonderful stay at Lembeh Resort during our dive club's trip to North Sulawesi. This small, eco-friendly resort is built into a steep hillside covered in rainforest. The grounds and buildings are home to many kinds of wildlife - we even heard tarsiers in the trees behind our cottage, which faced the sea and had a great view....

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
