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...

Hi ElPasoMaker Thanks for your great review! Yes I agree, some times 1,5 hour drive from the airport can be long. I am proud of all my staff that you give them such great ranking . Haven't been here in the resort was on a marketing trip in Europe. Greetings from Lembeh Thomas

I travelled to Lembeh in October 2016 and stayed and dived with Bastianos. I stayed in a budget room and honestly I was surprised on how nice the room was (for budget). there was a fan, air-con (which i never need but worth mentioning), private bathroom, and, I guess that was the best part : a balcony overlooking the bay....

Great service, from the dive crews to the resort staff.. just some comments; the room is a bit pricey for a non-airconditioned room. It's located on a cliff, so expect lotsa stairs (at least for me). Lighting should be improved, especially where there are stairs - safety hazard. But overall it was an amazing experience! Thanks!

Bastianos is not a place for sunbathing, there is no beach and are quite a few steep steps to climb before you reach the resort. The bungalows are nice and in a flowered setting. Thomas, the manager, was happy to speak his berndütsch dialect. The place is dedicated to muck diving and that was a great experience. Our guide, Recky,...

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
