At Lembeh Resort guests can stay in either Deluxe Cottage (traditional Minahasa or modern Cliffside) or in Garden-View rooms. All guest rooms have 24 hour electricity, en-suite bathroom with hot water, air-conditioning, king-size bed or twin beds, hot/cold water dispenser as well as complimentary tea & coffee, mini-bar, free Wi-Fi and electronic safe. Accommodation is complemented with the full board meal plan – 3 sumptuous meals daily along with snacks.

The very spacious Deluxe Cottages are fully detached and located along at the front of resort’s gardens, directly behind the waterline. Traditional Minahasan style cottages are built in wood and offer the beautiful sea view from their covered wooden verandas. 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 modern Cliffside Cottages are situated high above the rest of the resort. Their location does mean daily ascent and descent, 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.



Diving in Lembeh Strait 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.

Lembeh Resort is ideally situated at the midpoint of Lembeh Island, allowing for easy access to the majority of Dive Sites in less than 15 minutes by purpose built Dive Boats. Divers are divided into small groups with guest to guide ratio of maximum 4:1 therefor everyone is ensured a personal service.

Critters@Lembeh divers are brought to the dive sites in comfort with one of their numerous twin-engine dive boats. Each boat is fully covered with plenty of padded camera & accessory storage. Each guest is provided with a “locker” to store their equipment in a spacious covered gear area.

Photo Facilities:

Critters@Lembeh Resort provides guests with a spacious “Camera Room”, with individual workstations with 100/220V voltage-stabilized power sources. Towels are provided, as is a compressed air blower. The camera room, located just steps from the dive area, is locked each evening. In addition to the camera room, there are also three large freshwater camera rinse tanks, reserved specifically for cameras.

Cameras@Lembeh Resort (started in 2010 by renowned Photo Pro Steve Fish) is the first and only dedicated photo and video center in Lembeh Strait with a full-time on-site photo pro. It is located at Lembeh Resort and operated in conjunction with Critters@Lembeh Resort. All of the dive guides and dive staff understand not only what divers are looking for, but also what it takes to successfully photograph in such a specific environment. The professional team can provide the support you need to maximize your underwater photography experience in Lembeh
