Comments Lembeh Resort is extremely well run; Chef is 4-star; accommodations are roomy (even though there are big stair-climbs from facilities to rooms.) Can't say enough about dive operations, staff and boats. Staff treats you like family. Dive Masters amazed us with new creatures on every dive.

Camera room is nicely setup with adequate room for each photographer. We had the entire resort and our group had several BIG camera setups... plenty of space to 'tinker'.

MUCK Diving ... not for the beginner; divers with poor boyancy; or someone not interested in going slow to find the small sea life. The critters are amazing and abundant. Nudibranch's abound. MACRO PHOTO. Few reefs, mostly sandy bottom.

Somewhat remote but worth the trip!!!
