Comments NAD Lembeh is a resort with the best camera facility I have ever seen, plus knowledgeable owners. Our dive guides were awesome, I requested a tiny shrimp and it was produced by my guide a couple of days later. On every dive I saw a tiny nudi or shrimp I had never seen before. The diver/guide ratio was at most 2:1, often I had my guy to myself, we were usually first in and last out and we rarely saw another member of the group, great for extended photo-ops trying to shoot a macro subject too small to see without the camera lens.

This was my second trip to NAD Lembeh and the resort has vastly improved the grounds and the menu. It now sports a small pool and delightful landscaping. The rooms are small but comfortable, the only negative being a temporary sewage odor in the bathroom downstream from someone using theirs. This is not a comfort resort, but an excellent small dive operation. Non-divers and non muck-divers would not be happy anywhere in Lembeh. It is off the beaten track, not easy to get to but worth every minute to me, a muck-lover.
