Built in 2003, Lembeh Resort is an attractive new property just across Lembeh channel from Kungkungan Bay Resort. Remarkable for its thoughtful design and the way it has been so cleverly and seemingly naturally integrated into the cove and hillside of its setting, Lembeh Resort's lush gardens, careful landscaping, and waterfront vistas make for a truly spectacular little scuba resort. Built with stone and exotic local woods, the spacious guest rooms have good beds, efficient European-style air-conditioning systems, large semi open-air Balinese-style bathrooms, and a wide oceanview balcony. Public spaces include the pleasing two-story dining room, infinity swimming pool, dive shop, dockside gear storage hut, and a large, well-lighted camera preparation area with individual cubicles each equipped with charging facilities. A definite asset is the fact that Lembeh Resort's diving services are handled by Murex Divers. Their capable boatmen and highly experienced divemasters, coupled with efficient western-minded management, guarantee you as good a scuba diving experience as is to be had in North Sulawesi. If there is any downside to this property, it is that the hillside setting requires a bit of walking up and down stone pathways between the rooms, public spaces and scuba dive areas. I quickly got used to it, but someone with difficulty walking might prefer a different option.
