Divers Lodge Lembeh is situated on the south west tip of Lembeh Island, North Sulawesi, Indonesia on a ridge and is this oasis of tranquility and natural beauty, surrounded by 25 hectares of protected area.
The resort consists of only nine houses. Six of these are guest bungalows. Divers Lodge Lembeh is a small intimate resort which can accommodate a maximum of ten guests. This means guests needs’ are catered to and the staff provide excellent attention and service. The bungalows are scattered around the hill and each has its own path and private access, affording every guest guaranteed privacy.
Each bungalow has a spacious terrace with chairs and a living/bedroom with a choice of either a twin bed or two single beds, a work table and a sitting area. The ensuite bathroom is equipped with a shower with running hot and cold water, a western toilet and a washbasin. They are well ventilated and located to catch the cool sea breezes. If needed, a ceiling fan provides extra cooling. Air-conditioning is not needed.
All guests enjoy the wonderful meals created with fresh local produce together with the owners Linda and Rob at the long table. The restaurant with an open air lounge has a beautiful view of the bay and the sunset behind the volcano, Mount Klabat. The lounge is also the perfect spot to review your diving pictures or films, play games, read a book or enjoy a chat with fellow guests over a cold drink. A widescreen HDTV with surround home theatre sound system, a wide range of novels, DVD movies, music and marine life identification guides are provided for your use and enjoyment.
Wireless internet access is available in the restaurant and lounge area for free. There’s a Laptop with CD/DVD burner, which guests can use to access the internet. There is an excellent wireless GSM telephone network reception for those who have the facility on their cellular phones and also a GPRS network.
The unique underwater world of Lembeh Strait deserves a unique dive facility. Nowhere else will you find eight dive guides, one instructor and six boats catering for a maximum of ten guests. In total, Divers Lodge guides have clocked up more than 10.000 hours of diving in the Lembeh Strait. Very few places on the sea bottom are unfamiliar to them, and even fewer creatures can hide from their experienced spotting eyes. This PADI facility’s policy ensures that there are never more than two divers with one dive guide, unless of course guests specifically choose to dive in a larger group.
English speaking guides show you creatures you may never discover on your own and allow you to take your time to observe them more closely. This is ideal for photographers and videographers, since patience is the key to a good result. There is no time limit imposed on your dive, provided you stay within your computer limits and have enough air! And if you book a non-limit dive package in advance, you and your buddy will have a boat to yourselves, so you decide how many times you want to dive, where and when – this is true “no limit” diving!
Diver’s Lodge boats are specially designed for diving. They all provide good shelter, an on-board toilet, a spacious working area, 220/230 volt electricity, a fresh water tank for camera equipment and all necessary safety devices. Cold soft drinks, water and hot tea and coffee, as well as cookies and fruits, are available as snacks after diving. A delicious lunch is also served on board.
Diver's Lodge Lembeh is the perfect place for someone who likes privacy, while at the same time providing the opportunity to get to know other guests and make new friends.
