Dive Review of Lembeh Resort in
Indonesia/Lembeh

Lembeh Resort: "Lembeh, Better than ever.", Apr, 2015,

Reporter and Travel

Dive Experience Over 1000 dives
Where else diving Australia, Belize, Bimini, Bonaire, Caymans, Curacao, Galapagos, Indonesia (Wakatobi, Raja Ampat, Komodo, Lembeh, Bali, Banda Sea), Philippines, Red Sea, Southern Bahamas, St. Thomas, Turks & Caicos
Closest Airport Manado Getting There My international flight took me into Bali and, from there, I took a Lion Air flight to Manado with a brief stop in Makassar. From the Manado airport it is about 1.5 - 2 hours to the resort by car/boat.

You may find that this may change in the future as the number of flights in Indonesia is exploding.

Comments This was my 3rd trip to Lembeh Resort. In my last report (2014 Chapbook) I had a number of complaints. I had heard that they had made a number of changes and I was anxious to see for myself if things had improved. The answer is a resounding YES. On the resort side the main building with reception downstairs and the restaurant upstairs has been opened up. Reception is now just a small corner instead occupying a big portion of the room. The rest of the downstairs is open with couches and chairs to sit in while you read the books and magazines from the library. Ups ... Subscribe to get the full story.
