I am a non diver but the staff and service here are exceptional - nothing was too much trouble and Thomas checked every day that everything was ok. The hotel has a beautiful pool area and the food was well prepared and to a high standard. I would come back again!

I stayed at Bastianos Dive Resort Bunaken as part of a group of 30 divers and 4 non-divers. To say the least, our large group taxed the entire facility. We used Bastianos for both Bunaken and Lembeh. The organization of our transfer between facilities, and from and to the airport, was well managed. This resort is on a hill with...

What a treat. From the moment we arrived we were very well looked after by the staff, who even turned into a music playing singing group during the evenings. The staff even shared their local 'palm based' alcohol on our last night; which for some was until the early hours. The food was great, the rooms too (even though many...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched idyllically on the west coast of Lembeh Island, overlooking the strait is Bastianos Dive Resort at Lembeh Island (then it's called Bastianos Lembeh). The key feature of Bastianos Lembeh is that it has surprisingly good facilities yet retains a very modest price. The resort has an elevated swimming pool and large open-air common room with superb sea views, free wi-fi internet connectivity, satellite TV and spa room - facilities one might expect from a mid- to high- budget resort and not one of such clear affordability. The rooms are also of a relative good quality, with Superior cottages that can be rented as air-conditioned or fan only, and Standard rooms for those looking for the cheapest deal. The cottages are stand alone properties for more guest privacy, whereas the Standard rooms are adjoining but close to the water's edge. The resort prides itself on its social atmosphere. It is a popular choice for regular divers just wanting to dive, have fun and meet people, not really for 'hardcore' diver photographers that want to do nothing but spend their time underwater. Divers will, however, appreciate our dedicated camera room and the well-appointed dive center complete with DIN/Int compatible tanks as well as nitrox and the full range of rental equipment. ... more   less
