Comments This was our third trip to Lembeh and we liked this resort best of all. We booked the cliffside suite, which features its own infinity pool, which we loved, loved, loved--a gorgeous view, and the pool was heavenly after diving. Our friends in other rooms also enjoyed them but the cliffside suite (which comes with a butler, Nespresso machine, outside and indoor showers) was really decadent. You do earn your decadence, however, mounting 80 or so steps from the dive deck to the suite. The resort managers, Petra and Morton, are not just personable and effective, but engaged in the local community and the planet. They do all they can to minimize waste, and the local school kids come to the resort to perform.
The dive operation excels, as each guide is highly trained as a naturalist, and possesses x-ray vision. How the guides find so many creatures is amazing. I appreciated that they not only write down the names on their erasable slates, but also record sightings on a slate you can photograph at the end of the dive to jog your memory when logging the dive. Each pair of divers has a guide, and the resort offers the option of private boats and guides for a fee. I'm not detailing the diving since I'm assuming you already know its character; if you have the chance to do the cleanup dive the resort sponsors every week, do it. We found that looking for garbage made us even more observant than usual, and on that dive, we found great creatures (most notably a cusk eel in a hole with a fimbriated and giant moray).
Food is very good, with Indonesian and western options at each meal. We would happily return here.
