The Lembeh resort is a boutique style diver's resort on Lembeh island itself, making it arguably is one of Manado's best known dive hubs, Life here revolves around the diving and is especially popular with underwater photographers - muck, critter, macro and wide angle.... the Lembeh resort has it all! Experience critter diving in Lembeh Strait that is second to none!

There are 2 different room grades at the Lembeh resort - deluxe cottages or garden view rooms. All have air con, en suite bathrooms, king size double or twin beds, a water dispenser, tea and coffee, fridge and electronic safe. The traditional deluxe cottages are fully detached with glorious sea views and open air showers. They are traditional in design with a covered wooden veranda. 4 of the deluxe cottages can sleep up to 4 people, with a separate living and bedroom area. There are 4 deluxe cottages that are nestled in the cliffside and are a touch more modern. Enjoy spectacular views over the Lembeh Strait with open air showers. The newer garden view rooms are located close to the dive centre, surrounded by the tropical gardens in resort. The rooms share a veranda. These are smaller than the cottages but ideal for single travellers.

If you are not underwater at Lembeh resort, you are relaxing! The restaurant serves a mouth watering mix of local and international dishes, all freshly prepared. Tuck into pastries or home made bread at breakfast, a tantalising buffet at lunch and al la carte evening meals - all included in your holiday package! The spa is a must for aching muscles or if you are feeling adventurous, a wide range of land activities can be arranged locally.

The diving in Lembeh straits is usually referred to as muck or critter diving. This is a unique experience, driven by the desire to find those unique and strange beasties that are so common in this part of Indonesia. Enter a world underwater filled with mimic octopus, flambouyant cuttlefish, every kind of frogfish and pygmy sea horses... to name but a few of the special sightings.

A typical dive day at Lembeh resort includes 3 boat dives, returning back to the resort for lunch. You are sped to your dive sites in one of the 7 custom built dive boats. Each has plenty of storage for dive kit and cameras. Most of the 30+ dive sites are found in calm bays within the Lembeh Strait and can be reached in only 15 mins! Or why not jump in and discover the house reef for yourself. Guided house reef dives are available early morning or late a night as well as unguided house reef diving all day long.

  • 3 boat dives & house reef diving on offer

This is just a quick word of thanks for helping me and Tina out with our trip to Lembeh. We had a really good time and Tina was able to chill out and read plenty of books by the pool Dougie Souness

Thanks, the holiday was really good! Lembeh Resort was a fantastic and extremely well managed place. Fantastic muck diving in Lembeh Straits. Dan Sigvardsson

January 2015

Great place to stay, good quality food and excellent service. Staff are very helpful and always smiling. Management team shared our table at lunch and dinner with stories of experiences under the waves. Diving staff do everything for you and enjoy finding your requests. Hairy Squat Lobster requested and found on first dive. It's a long way to go but the diving is worth it. Rooms were clean and comfortable, lots of power points in camera room. Dry towels every day. Great location in forest. Lots of wildlife noise. Tim

The resort is truly beautiful and the facilities are first class. The restaurant is so well run, the menu varied and the food is very delicious. We loved the cute messages and treats from housekeeping that were laid on our bed for us to find each night. Critters@Lembeh really looked after us too. I really like the way they compile a list of all the animals found on each dive. Ross Pooley
