UW Photo Comments 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!

Comments 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 machine!

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!
