The resort has 10 beachfront rooms and 5 more upscale bungalows. Every room has A/C. The restaurant is buffet style and there is a full bar to relax in as well. There is a camera room with a spot for everyone including plenty of charging ports.

The diving in Lembeh Strait is world-famous for its critters: rare nudibranchs, hairy frogfish, rhinopias, blue ring octopuses, hairy shrimp, squat lobsters, orangutan crabs, etc. You’ll think you’ve entered a whole new macro universe! The diving here is muck diving, so excellent buoyancy and situational awareness are important.

There is generally little current, maximum depths are about 80 ft, and water temperatures are expected to be in the low 80s. The resort gives a guide/critter finder to every two divers, nearly unheard of in diving! Since
you only have one other person diving with you and your dive guide, your dives can last as long as you still have air and bottom time on your computer... some dives can last an hour and a half!

Your cost includes your room, lodging, 3 dives per day including nitrox, airport transfers, and your 2022 CSM Sustaining Membership (required of all participants). It doesn’t include airfare, visas, tips, or optional extras you may choose to add. If our group is large enough, we will get an additional discount from the resort. Your costs may end up being LOWER than what’s quoted.
