Comments Well run dive resort with an excellent dive staff. DIvemasters know where and how to find the rare critters. Frogfish and ghost pipefish become common after a few days here. Lembeh lives up to its reputation. We were lucky enough to find a wonderpus and rhinopias on the same dive.
DIvers are transported to dive sites quickly and in small groups so there never were the crowds that you might expect even on some of the famous dive sites.
Restaurant food is good and staff is friendly and efficient. Lodging rooms overlook the strait and are large and comfortable. Outdoor Balinese showers are a nice touch. Video room has a satellite TV from which we were able to watch the Red Sox take down the Yankees in the 2004 playoffs.
