Five-Star Pleasure - - PUBLISHER’S NOTE -

The pre­miere des­ti­na­tion for crit­ter div­ing, muck div­ing and

un­der­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­phy.

The spec­tac­u­lar Lem­beh Re­sort, a bou­tique-style re­sort, sit­u­ated on Lem­beh Is­land and perched above the beau­ti­ful Lem­beh Strait of north­east Su­lawesi of­fers beau­ti­ful views of the strait, es­pe­cially at sun­set. Lem­beh Re­sort is the pre­miere des­ti­na­tion for crit­ter div­ing, muck div­ing, and un­der­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­phy in Lem­beh Strait.

SLEEP: Guests at Lem­beh Re­sort stay in one of two dif­fer­ent Deluxe Cot­tage styles – Tra­di­tional Mi­na­hasan or Mod­ern Cliff­side – or the Gar­den View Rooms. The very spa­cious Tra­di­tional Mi­na­hasan Cot­tages stand alone and are lo­cated along the front re­sort gar­dens, which are di­rectly be­hind the wa­ter­line. Built from wood in the tra­di­tional style of the lo­cal Mi­na­hasan cul­ture, with long cov­ered wooden ve­ran­das, these cot­tages of­fer guests beau­ti­ful sea views as well sun­set views over Mount Kla­bat and other vol­ca­noes. All but one of these cot­tages in­clude an open bath­room com­plete with open-air shower as well as a closed shower. Four of these cot­tages are de­signed as two sep­a­rate rooms – liv­ing room and bed­room – al­low­ing com­fort­able ac­com­mo­da­tion for up to four people.

The more mod­ern Cliff­side Cot­tages are lo­cated high above the rest of the re­sort on the op­po­site side of a small bay which forms the heart of the property. Their lo­ca­tion re­quires walk­ing up steps, but guests stay­ing at these cot­tages agree that the un­in­ter­rupted, 180-de­gree views over Lem­beh Strait from each room’s pri­vate bal­cony are sim­ply stun­ning and worth the walk! The cot­tages also in­clude an ope­nair bath­room with open-air shower.

Con­structed in 2012, the Gar­den View Rooms are lo­cated close to the Restau­rant and Dive Cen­tre and are sur­rounded by and en­joy views of the trop­i­cal gar­dens. The rooms are per­fect for sin­gle trav­ellers or those on a smaller budget. Groomed walk­ways tra­verse the well-at­tended grounds of lush trop­i­cal gar­dens in­clud­ing many lo­cal fauna and flora found only in the trop­ics.

EAT & DINE: The Restau­rant & Bar is cen­trally lo­cated with beau­ti­ful views on the up­per level of the main build­ing. Break­fast and lunch are usu­ally a buf­fet. Din­ner is served a la carte, when the chefs pre­pare a wide se­lec­tion of in­ter­na­tional and In­done­sian cui­sine cater­ing to all tastes. Morn­ing and af­ter­noon snacks are also served, and tea and cof­fee are avail­able through­out the day in the din­ing area. The re­sort of­fers reg­u­lar In­done­sian BBQ nights where guests can en­joy a de­li­cious spread of sa­tays and In­done­sian dishes while be­ing ser­e­naded by the lo­cal Sun­day school choir.

Guests may en­joy a bot­tle of wine from the se­lec­tion, sip a re­fresh­ing cock­tail or sim­ply have a cold lo­cal Bintang beer while sit­ting at the bar. The new pool­side bar is one of the best spots to en­joy the view over Lem­beh Strait be­tween dives or to gather with friends for sun­set. You can chat with other guests and share your muck div­ing ex­pe­ri­ences, have a drink while watch­ing the sun­set, or sim­ply stargaze af­ter din­ner.

RE­LAX: Just me­ters from the sea, guests may en­joy stun­ning day and sun­set views across the Lem­beh Strait by re­lax­ing around or cool­ing off in the fresh­wa­ter swim­ming pool. Sunbeds and um­brel­las around the pool en­sure guest com­fort, and tow­els are pro­vided. Af­ter a hard day’s div­ing, guests can un­wind by treat­ing them­selves to a re­lax­ing mas­sage at the spa. Guests may se­lect from a range of treat­ments from a 30-minute re­flex­ol­ogy ses­sion to 2.5 hours of pam­per­ing.
