Comments The dive guides were excellent! Their ability and enthusiasm for finding critters made the dives truly outstanding. I could hardly wait for the next dive. We saw rhinopias, pipe fish (ghost, ornate ghost, robust, stick, etc), mandarin fish, seahorses (pygmy, giant pygmy, thorny, etc), eels (black & yellow ribbon, snake, moray), pygmy cuttlefish (including a juvenile), frogfish of various colors, as well as a hairy frogfish, octopus (long-legged, coconut and a blue-ringed!!!). The list goes on and on. Truly wonderful muck diving.

The resort has a fantastic view of the Lembeh Strait. Our spacious suite overlooked the Strait and I loved sitting on the verandah at night, watching the fisherman and enjoying the breeze. The food was great! Each meal had a number of menu choices and my husband and I enjoyed everything we ordered. My favorite was the coconut-cream mahi-mahi. Yummy! The cook is fairly new to Lembeh Resort and is doing a very good job.

My husband and I agree that the diving and resort staffs are very sweet and hard-working people. We thank them for making our stay there truly phenomenal.

UW Photo Comments Great. Couldn't get much better. Separate rinse tank at the dock for cameras, which are placed on the boat by the staff. The camera room next to the dive shop was spacious and well lighted.
