NAD is situated in the beautiful Lembeh Strait region of North Sulawesi. Famous the world over for its peerless macro and muck diving, the Lembeh Strait region offers more than just face to face encounters with weird and wonderful critters. Our resort is nestled between two hills inside a tranquil bay on Lembeh Island, a short boat ride from Bitung Harbour and minutes away from all the top dive sites of the region. Despite our proximity to Bitung we have a clean beach with some nice corals and lots of wildlife at the waters’ edge. A sunset Kayak trip can lead to close encounters with Kingfishers, Egrets, Sea Kytes to name a few.
With ten rooms and four bungalows on site, the resort blends seamlessly into a beautiful green backdrop of native flora fronting a small beach and wonderful house reef dive. Our “Eco Friendly” design allows us to keep our rates reasonably low and our standards high while enabling us to show a high level of personalized service in all departments. If you are planning your first trip to Lembeh Island or have been here many times over the years, please join us at NAD for an experience you won’t soon forget, both below the water and in the comfort of your new home away from home. Our food constantly gets fantastic reviews, prepared fresh from ingredients you are sure to find every meal a delightful surprise.
Lembeh Island is famous for it’s critter diving in the Muck. Muck and Critter Diving usually takes place in areas with Black Sand substrate which is a haven for small ‘macro photography’ critters. You will find many species of Octopus, Frogfish and Seahorses here. Bitung is a small port town situated on the South Coast of North Sulawesi, or Sulawesi Utara as it is known here. About 1hours drive away is Manado international Airport, and a further 30 Minutes from there is Manado City.
Here at NAD Lembeh Resort, we offer our guests 24hr electricity with all airconditioned rooms, along with free WiFi Internet Access in most areas. All our Rooms feature hot water showers which are ideal after a long critter dive in the muck! We also offer Nitrox Diving for a small surcharge if people wish to use enriched Air Nitrox.
We also run a blog where we post regular updates… Please take a look at http://nadlembehresort.wordpress.com to see what is going on in Lembeh at the moment, and of course, you can contact us with any questions you might have.
