Comments This was our third visit to Lembeh Strait. I generally do not like to repeat the same locations or see the same creatures, but Lembeh has never disappointed me. I keep seeing new things, particularly tiny critters. Our diver-to-guide ratio was excellent 2:1. Lembeh is a very popular destination, but we didnít see any divers from other resorts under or above water.

All rooms were a stand-alone bungalow, each with an outdoor Japanese onsen-style bath tub. Unlike some other Lembeh resorts, there were no stairs to climb (a big plus for us). Our room #5 was not the closest to the dining or diving area, but within easy walking distance. A/C in our room could have been stronger.

Respectfully, when leaving a report a more detailed information would be much appreciated. As it shows now, I can't even see the name of the place you stayed at. Cheers

The name of the place is "Dive into Lembeh" as shown on top. I skipped details, because this place has been reviewed many times in the Undercurrent's Chapbook. If you have specific questions, you may email me.
