Each of the spacious cottages sleeps up to 6 people in double and twin bedrooms. Each room has it's own private en suite. The elegant and modern decor welcomes you in, as does the mouth watering smells coming from the dining room. Forget hotel buffets! The cottage chef prepares fresh local and western specialities each day. Wake up to a tasty breakfast on the table or come home from the day's diving to be spoilt as you sit to a 3 course dinner (veggies are not forgotten either!). Each cottage has a separate living room for relaxing. Or download that day's photographic efforts in the dedicated camera room. Savour the real taste of Indonesia from the comfort of your cottage, your home away from home.
Then there is the diving. Lembeh's reputation is growing and it is easy to see why. Under the expert eyes of your dive guide, enjoy encounters with some of the best critter action on the planet. Discover something new each time you dive amid the sandy seabeds and reef slopes! Personal service is important at Eco Divers and there are never more than 4 divers to each guide so you can be sure you will not miss a crab, nudibrach or seahorse. Flamboyant cuttlefish, Ambon scorpion fish, hairy frog fish... the names are exotic and alluring and this is just a tiny taster of what you can see. The main dive boat is only a 2 minute transfer from the shore line and all of the dive sites can be reached within 15 minutes by speedboat. There is no doubt, the Lembeh cottages and Eco Divers are the gateway to another world.

Lembeh is all about the diving... and you need to get wet to see just what all the hype is about. A diving holiday in Lembeh is a voyage into a strange world filled with unique critters in a myriad of rainbow colours. Thanks to the straits, the conditions here are calm and all diver levels are welcome. As you meander along the sea bed you will find all manner of macro marine life on the black volcanic sands. There are not many reefs here but who needs them when you can stumble across frogfish, octopus, sea moths and scorpion fish just lying on the bottom. Some camouflage themselves well so watch out for a pair of eyes peering out from the sandbed. Flying gurnnards, inimicus devilfish and ribbon eels... these are some of the larger inhabitants that live alongside the tiny shrimps, pipefish and sea horses. And let's not forget the famous, and simply stunning, flamboyant cuttlefish!

Another superb stay at Lembeh Cottages, Cary and Jim and all of your staff , thanks...! Amazing critters and Amazing people. Truly one of the most enjoyable, fun packed dive trips I have ever had, Never a dull moment above or below the surface..! Will bring my skipping rope next time......... Thanks again Alan Johnson
Thanks for sorting out trip, it was all that I expected. The hotel was excellent. The welcome was terrific. Carey were very good hosts and spent a lot of time with me and other guests. Diving at Lambeh because it was so different and unpredictable. Muck diving is a must if you want help your bouyancy, I went from 8kg done to 4kg which improved thing vastly, there may be scope to drop further but ran out of time. Saw most of what I wanted to see and others I didn't know existed. The Nudibranchs are brilliant, so many different colours and shapes. I would recommend night dives at both locations Tim O'Malley
A great base for critter crazy divers. Great for photography. Stuart Patterson
I had a fantastic time in N Sulewesi, in particular the Lembeh Cottages. I loved it so much I am already planning to return in Oct/Nov Tamer
