Home Indonesia North Sulawesi Lembeh

Dive resorts Around the Lembeh Strait, Indonesia

There are around nine resorts spread out along either side of the strait. Most of them are relatively isolated, with no other resorts or other amenities about. They can be like being on a live-aboard, only without the motion sickness. If you're traveling with non-diving friends, a resort on the Sulawesi side of the strait may provide more diversions (with less travel time) than a place on Lembeh Island.

Two Fish Divers
Comfortable, if not posh, resort in its own small bay on Lembeh Island. The also have a larger resort on Bunaken, making Two Fish one of the best choices for those that want to dive both locations.
Lembeh Resort
Lembeh Resort consists of 14 cottages located on Lembeh Island. Their web site features some fantastic photographs.
Kasawari Lembeh Resort
Rather luxe resort on the Sulawesi side offering 10 air-conditioned villas. Also has a pool and spa services, featuring a special "after dive" massage.
NAD Lembeh
Nice, mid-priced resort on Lembeh Island around the middle of the strait. See the Dive Happy Review for more details.
Kunkungan Bay Resort
Sited in an old coconut plantation on the Sulawesi side of the strait. Claims to be the only resort in the strait with it's own exclusive house reef. A bit pricey, but it looks like it might be worth it.
Sulawesi Dive Quest
Located on the Sulawesi side of the strait near the main town of Bitung. Not the fanciest place on this list, but definitely easy on the budget.
