Divers Lodge Lembeh
Lembeh Strait Indonesia
Divers Lodge Lemben is a small resort on the south end of Lembeh Island devoted to providing customized services for its guests.
Underwater photographers who visit Divers Lodge Lembeh will want to book an unlimited diving packaage which includes Nitrox fills, a private boat and guide (for 1-2 divers), accommodation in a private bunglow with good views over the sea (and for some volcanos!).
Single divers / underwater photographers are welcome.
Divers Lodge currently has 6 cottages. All have private bath (hot & cold water), a desk for working on cameras (they will set up another if 2 photographers in the room).
Dive packages also include airport transfers, all meals and snacks (tasty food!),
We depart April 30 aboard the liveaboard SMY Ondina for our dive/photo cruise from Lembeh Strait to Halmahera and Raja Ampat. The ship will pick up guests for that trip at the resort, so no drying or packing required!
The package includes:
- 7 nights, 6 days UNLIMTED NITROX diving
- all meals and snacks
- 1 dive guide/1 or 2 divers
- private boat
- airport transfers
- free laundry service
- tax & service
I chose this resort for my small group of underwater phtoographers (and for individuals too) for 4 reasons.. the size ... the ratio of boats/divers.. the ratio of guides/divers.. plus the unlimited diving (and free Nitrox). It doesn't hurt that people I've sent there came back with rave reviews and extended their stay as long as possible.
Their boats are comfortable. Shaded and with a toilet and shower. I understand you can even charge batteries aboard some of them. They look to be the best dive boats in Lembeh.
BTW, there is no reason to dive Lembeh from a liveaboard. You can get more diving, more comfort and more great photos during a stay at Divers Lodge Lembeh.
The resort is at the end of Lembeh Island, right across from Bitung.
So, you can choose to go muck diving in the Strait, or go the other way (weather permitting) and do some reef diving. Also understand they have some Mandarianfish right outside the resort (and no surcharge!! for the Mandarianfish dive).
All the comfortable and very private, but not luxurious, bungalows face seaward and have great views over the southeast end of the island.. which they own, so it is pretty hills and a nice bay.
1 or 2 bungalows have views in both directions (toward N. Sulawesi and the volcanos). The staff will carry your cameras to and from the boat for you.
Tarsiers live on the property. We saw them when we were there in May! They claim to have more birds there than in Tangkoko.. but I'll never be able to verify that!
The food is good. Not fancy but very tasty and served at one long table in the dining/lounge building.
Downside? The "pool" is only the inflatable one used for the kids.
