Lembeh Resort is nestled away in a private cove with a wealth of exotic flora and fauna in a central part of Lembeh Island. The secluded location of the resort ensures a quiet and tranquil experience, while the warm-hearted team offer service with a smile to make certain that your experience of Lembeh will be the best that it possibly can be. You will discover that despite of the seclusion on a tropical island in North Sulawesi you will not have to give up the comforts of a luxury ocean front resort. Our cottages are charming, spacious and comfortable with a wealth of modern amenities.

The Lembeh Strait is widely recognised by marine biologists as having the Worlds highest concentration of rare and unusual marine life. The practice of Muck-Diving, also known as Critter-Diving, began in Lembeh Strait in the mid nineties when marine biologists started to explore the black sand slopes of Lembeh Strait to identify the amazing diversity of animals that inhabit the underwater realm of Lembeh Strait. Today, 20 years later, divers who enjoy both macro as well as wide-angle underwater photography travel from all over the world to experience this magical place in North Sulawesi.

Perched slightly above the beautiful waters of Lembeh Strait and surrounded by lush tropical gardens Lembeh Resort was built to inconspicuously blend into the natural landscape. Westerly views of ancient extinct volcanoes and spectacular sunsets await you. Experience the warm hospitality, tropical beauty and unique wonders of our home, Lembeh Resort. We are committed to delivering North Sulawesi hospitality at its best and making our guests’ stay enjoyable and memorable both above and below the water. With a 4:1 staff ratio to ensure a high level of service, our team looks forward to welcoming you to Lembeh Resort soon.

AMAZING! Richard is able to make scientific talks hugely entertaining . I learnt so much, and every dive after the talks I found myself on the hunt for the new critters I had just learnt all about. Brilliant!
