In my estimation, they have the best camera room in the world!    Every
photographer has a huge dedicated station with ample room and lots of
electricity.  The staff anticipates your needs with respect to cameras and
are readily handy to carry your gear for you.  They fully expect every
guest photographer to arrive with a wish list and get very excited watching
you cross items off your list!  Since our last visit they've added Steve
Fish, a wonderful photo pro, who's also a bit of a camera repair magician!

Returning to Lembeh Resort is like returning home.  They are warm and
welcoming to all, especially brand new guests.  They are fun to be with and
it's fun to watch their excitement both above and below the water when they
exceed your expectations!  The cottages are comfortable and have had all
new bedding/soft goods installed since our last visit.  Food is plentiful
and varied; they serve a combination of Asian and western dishes and can
accommodate even the pickiest of eaters!  We also loved the new
"divers relaxation area" complete with a wonderful cappucino

Diving with critters@lembeh is a joy and I look forward to every visit! 
The guides are all superb critter spotters and carry a slate to educate
"newbies" on the critters they're experiencing.  They also have a
phenomenal ability to spot from vast distances the habitats of the most
unique of their critters and make sure every guest gets the opportunity to
experience whatever they find.  They truly work as a well-organized team
and Kerri & Hergen are a wonderful addition to the critters crew since
our last visit there.  We're going back in 2013 and I can't wait!
