This place is THE BEST for underwater photos especially for UNUSUAL critters. 1-3 divers per dive master . 5 star Indvidual "villa" room with in-room WIFI. Great food. Order off a menu. no crappy buffet. Friendly staff all around. Wonderful value for the price. But the best part is the "muck" diving and the fabulous photo opportunites, Was my second trip. Met two couples who it was their thrid and fourth time to this resort. I am going back again very soon. If you are into Photos, you MUST COME HERE!!!

The grounds are beautiful and so are the rooms. Full baths, a/c, TV, coffee/tea maker and small safe.
Food is varied and is well prepared and taste great.
The diving is very nice, but mainly macro critters.
The dive personnel carry your gear and cameras as well as clean your gear at the end of the trip.
I cannot say enough how this resort is top notch.

There is not a lot to do around the resort than dive, relax or swim in the pool. The town nearby is just a small village. No shopping or night life.

Unfortunately, that the every tail is end and we lwent out there. We leaved there with my daughter as much as 3 weeks and it was realy unbelievable. Pretty, cute and nice personal. Great comfortable number. Royally delicious food, individually for each person. And it depite that this hotel specializes on proffesional diving. The pool next to the hotel is clearing everyday. With great pleasure we come there again with the first facility. Lots of love to wonderful personal from this great hotel!

my overall experience at the resort is excellent.

the resort provides pick up and drop off at the airport free of charge. the driver drove very cautiously. our bags were handled with much care from the airport to our room.

our room is about 50-60 square meters and it is very clean. there are tv, music players, iPod dock, kettle for boiling water, coffee and tea and small fridge in the room. the internet was fast and free. water is sufficiently provided everyday and we could get more if needed. the a/c works well. we are quite comfortable at 24 deg C all day. the king size bed is comfortable.

food here is super. the menu covers varieties of indonesian, thai, and western style of cooking. we never feels hungry or dissatisfied. alcoholic beverages can be purchased with extra charges. services are provided all day until 10 pm.

diving service is great. the dive guides have eyes with GPS. fruits, water, hot face towels, dry towels are provided when we get out of the water. the dive guides carry photographic gears for divers. at the end of the dives they also rinse off and hang the wet suits up.

highly recommend this resort.

I have lived in Kasawari for 4 nights and did 8 dives in late November 2016 during my second single photo-dive trip to Lembeh Strait. Enthusiastically engaged in underwater photography since 2012, I of course chose the Resort, precisely focused on underwater photographers. 11 spacious cottages (two of them right over the water with a stunning sea view) are located around the main two-storey building with an outdoor restaurant, bar and a cozy chill-out areas on both floors. On the site I met a middle-aged couple already underwater photo enthusiasts, for whom it was already the 30th visit Kasawari Lembeh Resort. I think that says a lot ...

I will list only those advantages that are in my opinion, is isolated Kasawari competitors
- The interior of all rooms of premium with good design and quality finishes (windows, high ceilings, heavy drapes, powerful air conditioning, extra shower in the open air
- Landscaped garden with professional landscaping and night lighting, infinity pool with an artificial waterfall
- I love quiet places and it is a place Kasawari. There can not be heard cock dawn shouting and ringing of church bells))
- Head dive boat is very spacious and fast (. 2 x 150 HP !!!) whisk you to any of the most popular dive sites in less than 15 minutes. High concrete pier. Two slightly smaller bot
- A good security system with video surveillance and night security guard allowed me not to worry and to leave for the night all my expensive equipment in the spacious room the air-conditioned chamber at 20 tables
- A huge area dive center with its highlight: it was so nice to take a hot shower after each dive site just above the high tide zone. 5 or 6 huge desalination baths, each of which accommodates up to 10 boxes

Cons (quite difficult to talk about the disadvantages, but I still try hehe)))
- Nitrox must be ordered in advance, at least 1 day
- Sandy beach only at low tide to 50-70 meters from the Resort (pool available compensates for this moment)
- Internet connection was slow (I was assured that this will change soon ...)

Summary: Kasawari Lembeh Resortis perfect for experienced and discerning underwater photographers. And it does not matter whether you are traveling alone or with family. It can be successfully used for workshops and contests. The price is slightly above average, but in the opinion of all guests could be even higher, given the level of service offered

Room Tip: Villa #1, Villa #2 (Lembeh Strait view)
