Overview

Dive Into Lembeh is located in Kasawari Bay on the Sulawesi mainland, towards the northern end of Lembeh Strait and away from Bitung and its busy port. The resort is laid out across a beautiful plot of land guaranteeing plenty of peace and quiet and sea views for each of the resort bungalows. Unusual for Lembeh, the resort also has a big pool and a beautiful black sand beach for guests to use, right in front of the resort. The resort’s location on the mainland means transfers from Manado and its airport are very easy , and side trips to places such as Tangkoko are simple to arrange - guests can dive Hairball in the afternoon, then head off in search of tarsiers in the early evening.

The resort has been designed and set up to cater for muck divers enthusiasts and photographers. The dive centre has a fantastic camera room with plenty of space for working on equipment and charging batteries, and dedicated wash tanks. As the resort management likes to say, “Dive Into Lembeh was built by divers, for divers - a tailor-made resort for diving in the Lembeh Strait” - the prefect resort for those looking for an amazing muck diving experience in Sulawesi.

Rooms

SEA VIEW BUNGALOW

The 9 spacious bungalows are equipped with satellite TV, air conditioning, ceiling fan, minibar, safe and ensuite western-style bathroom with walk-in shower. Drinking water is provided in all bungalows in the form of a five gallon hot & cold water dispenser, with tea and coffee facilities available for use. Each bungalow has a private balcony with private ‘onsen’ hot tub, comfy bean bags for relaxation as well as a drying rack.

Resort facilities

The resort has been cleverly designed to ensure that every room, and the restaurant and bar, all have a great sea view looking across the Lembeh Strait and to Lembeh Island. The resort restaurant is open air and serves a fantastic selection of Indonesian and Western dishes. Comfortable seating and a beachside fire pit encourages guests to hang out and share their experiences of the day’s diving. The resort also has a large 18m pool with spacious sun deck - perfect for sunbathing between dives - and a spa that offers a range of luxurious Indonesian treatments.

Each of the 9 beautifully appointed bungalows have been carefully placed to provide guests with stunning ocean views of the Lembeh Strait and has its own private Japanese-style ‘onsen’ hot tub on the veranda - an ideal place to warm up after a long muck dive. All materials and labour for the construction of the bungalows was sourced locally to ensure the resort puts as much back into the local community as possible.
