Lembeh Resort


At Lembeh Resort guests can stay in one of two different room types- Deluxe Cottages or Cliffside Cottages. All guest rooms include 24 hour electricity, en-suite bathroom with hot water, air-conditioning, king-size bed or twin beds, wardrobe, table and chair, dispenser for cold as well as hot drinking water, complimentary tea & coffee, mini-bar and electronic safe.

The very spacious Deluxe Cottages are fully detached and located along the front resort gardens which are directly behind the waterline. Built from wood in the traditional Minahasan style, with their long covered wooden verandas, guests staying in a Deluxe Cottage can enjoy the beautiful sea view. All but one of these cottages include an open bathroom complete with open air shower as well as a closed shower. Four of these cottages are designed as two separate rooms- living room and bedroom, allowing accommodation for up to 4 people.

The more modern Cliffside Cottages are located on the opposite side of the property, high above the rest of the resort. Their location does mean walking up steps, but guests staying in these cottages agree that the uninterrupted 180 degree views over Lembeh Strait from the room’s private balcony are simply stunning and worth the walk! These cottages also include an open bathroom with open air shower.

Restaurant & Bar:

The Restaurant & Bar, centrally located on the upper level of the main building with beautiful views is open from 7am to 10:30pm for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is normally a buffet of fresh tropical fruits & juices, bread, cereals & yogurts, pastries fresh from the oven & home-made rolls, as well as cooked-to-order Western or Indonesian dishes. Lunch is also normally a buffet, and dinner is normally a-la-carte, where the chefs prepare a wide selection of international & Indonesian cuisine catering to all tastes. The chefs will happily do their utmost to accommodate any special requests and dietary requirements. Morning & afternoon snacks are also served, and tea & coffee is available all day long in the restaurant area.

At the bar guests can enjoy a bottle of wine from the selection, sip a refreshing cocktail or simply have a nice cold Bintang beer. Staff are more than happy to also serve drinks around the pool area so guests can make the most of the beautiful views.


Just meters from the sea, guests can enjoy stunning views across the Lembeh Strait and cool off in the fresh water swimming pool. Sunbeds and umbrellas around the pool ensure guest comfort, and towels are provided.


After a hard days diving, guests can treat themselves to a relaxing massage at the Spa. Open from 2:15pm to 10:30pm, guests can choose and enjoy a range of treatments from a simple 30 minute reflexology session to a 2.5 hour pampering session.

Land Excursions & Tours:

A full range of land-based excursions are offered ranging from a short 1.5 hour tour of the local village to the full day tour of the Minahasan Highlands. A very popular tour, perfect for the free afternoon of decompressing the day before flying, is the Tangkoko National Park Tour, where guests can see many land ‘critters’ such as the famous Tarsiers and Black Crested Macaques.

Dive Center:

The Critters@Lembeh Dive Center provides guests with all their diving equipment and souvenir needs. Open from7:00am until the last dive, the Dive Center is staffed by English speaking staff. There is also a full-time Marine Biologist on staff to help guests identify all their “critter photos”. Rental equipment from Aqualung and Apeks is available, as are LED torches for Night Dives.

Diver’s Lounge:

The Diver’s Lounge is located next to the Dive Center and affords Guests a comfortable atmosphere to relax between dives and enjoy a premium coffee from one of our two espresso machines. With a full library of Fish Identification books and Dive Magazines, the Diver’s Lounge is ideal for a quick break or passing an afternoon of off-gassing before your flight.

The Diving:

The diving in Lembeh Straits is commonly referred to as “Muck Diving” or “Critter Hunting”. This unique type of diving generally revolves around the search for small unique “critters” that inhabit the black sand slopes of the area. The majority of the diving is done in the calm bays or along the lush coastline of both mainland Sulawesi and Lembeh Island. The body of water that separates the two is known as the Lembeh Strait and is less than 3 kilometers wide at it’s widest point. Lembeh Resort is ideally situated at the midpoint of Lembeh Island, giving their Guests easy access to the majority of Dive Sites in under 15 minutes using their custom Dive Boats. Their local Dive Guides have an unmatched knowledge of the area, with a combined 60,000+ dives in Lembeh Strait alone. with Guests divided into small groups with a maximum of 3 guests per Dive Guide, their Guests are ensured personal service. Upon arrival, each Guest submits a “wish-list” of the animals they would like to see during their stay, which the Dive Staff then use to tailor the Dive Site program. Nitrox is available, as are smaller or larger tank sizes.
