Your Home in Lembeh
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.
NAD is also Owner-Operated, almost all year Simon and Zee are present on site, if they aren't at the resort they are off on a photographic adventure or diving. This also makes us different from any other resort we know - we still go on diving holidays. Our Dive Team is second-to-none, with 14 guides who between them have over 100 years of diving experience in Lembeh.
The fastest and most comfortable “big” boats in the region
A good place to hone your skills.
Local and International food cooked freshly for you, all dietary requirements welcome!
Not just Muck diving, we have great ‘normal’ diving too.
Beautiful Sunsets in the Lembeh Strait.
I'm very happy this very moment as I sit on my private balcony in bungalow B3. Cool breezes with the Lembeh waters in view, tantalizing us for our night dive in a few hours. The diving is well organized, good boats, talented, local dive guides find lots of critters, Nitrox available, well staffed with courteous care, good food, low key, etc..,
We've met 3 sets of repeat guests.... That says a lot.. If you like muck diving, you'll be in heaven..
This was our second diving trip to the Lembeh area and our first to this resort. Simon, the owner, purchased it a couple of years ago and has completely transformed the place. His attention to detail is evident everywhere from the food to the rooms to the diving. The resort is continually being upgraded - for instance, they have just added a floating dock and were building a canopy over it while we were there.
The resort is small in size but big when it comes to being looked after. For any serious UW photographer or for anyone just getting into UW photography NAD is the place to be. The services offered by the very experienced and knowledgable guides are the best I have encountered on my travels. No worrying about getting a space for your camera as the purpose built camera room can easily accommodate everyone's rigs. The rooms are not luxurious but they are very comfortable and practical. The boats that take you out for your dives are the best in Lembeh.
I was a part of a group of underwater photographers who spent six days at NAD and loved it. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. The dining area looked brand new and was very comfortable. All the staff at meal times were excellent and could not do enough for us. Each meal was delicious with mainly local dishes. The meals were the best food I have had in my life and would recommend the resort just for the tasty food.
Spent more than 2 weeks of my holiday at NAD, and I could not have choosen better destination: the rooms are nice and clean, with own patio and view of the Lembeh Strait; the food is yummy and there's lot of variation.
We made a second trip to NAD in December, and once again they exceeded our expectations. Simon and Zee just make everyone feel so welcome, and if you're a photographer, they've thought of and provided every convenience down to the smallest detail.Even Better the 2nd Time
