Nad Lembeh Resort

One of the best places to stay and dive Lembeh Strait.

NAD Lembeh Resort offers just ten Poolside Rooms, three Seaview Bungalows and two Executive Bungalows. The resort boasts a beautiful open-air restaurant and a newly built bar. It’s the perfect place to wind down after a day’s diving enjoying the beautiful sunset overlooking the Lembeh Strait together with a cold beer, a glass of wine or delicious cocktail.

Outside the restaurant, and directly facing the Straight is a lovely little shaded grass area where you will find a small pool, jacuzzi and sun loungers, a great place to be off gas! Should you have more energy than you expected though you can always take advantage of the free of charge kayaks and take yourself for a paddle around the peaceful bay.

NAD also is proud to be the first dive resort in the world which is growing its own produce in the most ecologically friendly way possible with approximately 125m2 of growing space and Aquaponics. Aquaponics is the marriage of aquaculture (fish farming) and hydroponics (growing plants in water). It also involves a fair amount of science and geekery.

Camera Room NAD Lembeh has one large camera room featuring individual workstations for each room, and overspill benches for those who like to spread.

Each workbench has a shelf for your chargers, 8 (yes, eight!) power points (Indo / European 2 pin plugs – adapter strips available and plentiful), a mini spotlight, towel hangars (for camera towels, not your speedos), a rubberised matt for your camera and a mouse-mat style camera mat for your delicate’s. There is also space for the largest pelican cases underneath and a lower shelf for your additional charging needs.


Accommodation All rooms at NAD have hot water, air conditioning and WiFi as standard, they also all look over the clear sea.

Beachfront/ Poolside Room Ground level, no stairs or hills to climb. These simple rooms are available as twins or doubles. All provide a view over the jetty and beach, and all have a small patio with chairs and a drying rack. These rooms are perfect for those who travel in a small group.

Seaview Bungalows These wooden Minahasa style bungalows can be found in a secluded section of the resort, a short distance away from the restaurant and bar. With an impressive view over the bay, these bungalows are all double bedded, and are ideal for couples who want to spend their evenings sitting on a private deck with the best view in the Straits.

Executive/ Family Bungalows Also built as wooden Minahasa style bungalows, these rooms provide you with all the features of the Seaview Bungalows, but with the addition of an extra room that can be used as a day room or additional bedroom. Great for those travelling with a child.

Daily Schedule Diving the Lembeh Strait is something that all divers should try at least once, these black sand bays and coral outcrops hold an outstanding amount of marine life. If you are an underwater photographer, then the Lembeh Strait should be on your must visit list, likely multiple times!

Divers visiting Lembeh are likely to have a vast list of must-see critters, such as frogfish, mimic octopus, rhinopias, a huge array of nudibranchs and other octopus, the blue ringed octopus being a highlight. But at NAD Lembeh is not just muck diving, they will also explore all over the Island and beyond to find some of the best reef diving in SE Asia.

Dive packages are available as 2 or 3 dives per day. Night dives, mandarin and black water dives can be booked and paid for locally.

House reef For those who opt for the 3 dive a day package on a minimum 5 night stay, access to the house reef is free and it is open for 12hours a day, otherwise the price locally is $10 per dive.
