    Indonesia- Lembeh

    Dive Indonesia with Family Dive Adventures Lembeh & Bangka 

    Indonesia, Empty Nesters, Wakatobi, Family Dive Adventures, Family vacationsWe are hopefully exploring Lembeh Indonesia 2021:  We traveled to Indonesia to see the Murex dive resorts and totally fell in love with Lembeh.  

    We spent a night in LAX to see some friends and then a stopover to enjoy a night in Singapore on the return. We spent  Bangka and Lembeh.  I will say we were pleasantly surprised for sure how genuine, friendly and service-oriented the dive staff were.  Banka Resort is a boutique-style resort sitting literally on the water’s edge.  Family-style dining and Indonesian customer designed cottages all made of incredibly unique Indonesian hand-carved hardwoods. Did I mention, this resort has a billion-dollar view of 4 volcanoes on the mainland.  It was majestic, to say the least.  The diving here was spectacular with large populations of turtles and big schools of fish.  We enjoyed pristine walls and reefs.  Mostly drift dives here.  The dive shop has a nice photo area with charging stations and total valet full-service diving. 

    On to Lembeh Resort, this was a 5-star luxury resort with fine dining and service.  The boats and dive operators are the same so expectations were high and well met.  Lembeh is perfect for divers and non-divers as the spa is world-class along with the national park and village tours, there are lots to do in this area other than diving. Lembeh has a Backscatter photo center that is one of the best I have seen. You can look at all my photos in our photo gallery, just click the link on the left side menu and got to Indonesia and enjoy. 

    Most of the diving here is macro. Although it’s the largest population of large seahorses I have ever seen; green, yellow, red, and brown. Many different kinds of octopus to photograph as well as ribbon eels, snake eels, and moray eels. The reefs are crazy with color and life. Just a perfect destination for couples, singles, or photo nuts like me. The rooms here are incredible. The oceanfront is the best view and most luxurious for sure. This is the Hilltop suite, which is like a mini Jade mountain with a private pool. Perfect for a romantic stay.

    Location: You will enjoy the tranquility and secluded area of Wakatobi; no traffic noise, no pollution, no other dedicated dive resort for hundreds of miles.

Located in Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia (Southeast Asia) Wakatobi is easily accessible from the US or Europe. Many airlines offer flights to one of the major cities in Asia with the transfer on to Denpasar, Bali which is the gateway (as well as the most amazing and beautiful stop on the way) to Wakatobi.

    The private air charter brings you from Bali to the resort’s purpose-built airstrip in a two-and-a-half-hour flight over breathtaking tropical island scenery, after that it’s a short drive and boat ride to the resort. A light meal is served on the flight and you will be assisted with all checked baggage.
