And, with diver-friendly details at every turn, you’re guaranteed to make the most of your time in the water.
Part of the prestigious Solitude family of resorts and liveaboards, Solitude Lembeh Resort caters to adventurous guests seeking exclusivity and individuality from their experience.

On-site upgrades such as indulgent spa days and private candle-lit dinners are easy to organise, allowing guests to spend less time planning their stay, and more time wandering the white sand beach, spotting Lembeh’s coolest macro critters, or daydreaming by the ocean-front infinity pool.
Explore the resort
Solitude Lembeh Resort is set right on the water’s edge, enclosed by jungle gardens and boasting luxury facilities throughout. The restaurant and bar are located on the upper floor of the main building, where a dedicated team of chefs serve up both local and international cuisine. An a-la-carte menu compliments the full-board meal plan with lunch buffets also available. Weather permitting, guests can dine beside the pool under the stars and dietary preferences or restrictions can be accommodated. The infinity-edge swimming pool features a built-in Jacuzzi and overlooks the resort’s sundeck and jetty, creating a peaceful and relaxing space with views of the Lembeh Strait.
From perfectly appointed villas and rooms to babysitting services, resort-wide wheelchair accessibility, and flexible custom dive schedules, every detail of the resort’s facilities and operations are designed to cater to discerning guests. If you want a break from the first-rate scuba diving, check out day excursions to the Minahasa Highlands or Tangkoko National Park, explore the village fish market and Bitung town with local guides, or up the ante with an exciting rafting or trekking trip. Snorkelling is also possible on the house reef.
Diving from Solitude Lembeh

Attention to sustainability isn’t just a feature of Solitude Lembeh Resort, it’s a core principle and operating standard for the entire family of Solitude resorts and liveaboard vessels. Plastic is minimised wherever possible with fresh drinking water dispensers placed resort-wide, including in each room. Complimentary toiletries are also offered in stylish ceramic dispensers, rather than individual plastic packaging. This resort partners with the Lembeh Foundation, a fantastic local organisation that works to empower rural communities across the region, and to preserve the unique nature and culture of Lembeh.
