It is the incredible diving that draws visitors to Lembeh Strait , but we are committed to providing an equally memorable resort experience.

The Location in Lembeh Strait

Our superb location in Kambahu Bay means that we are right in the middle of Lembeh’s best dives and most of the sites in the strait are within five minutes by speedboat. Directly off our fine black sand beach lies our exceptional House Reef, offering calm and current-free conditions so that dedicated critter hunters and shutterbugs can have fantastic dives at whatever time they choose.

The Bungalows

Each coconut-wood bungalow offers wondrous views over Kambahu Bay and Lembeh Strait. The bedroom is equipped with both a ceiling fan and a/c for your comfort, with complimentary drinking water, coffee and tea close at hand. Each unit also has a walk-in closet to keep your bags and belongings organized and out of the way as well as a walled open-air “Bali-style” garden bathroom with a hot water shower to help reheat you after long repetitive dives.
