Solitude is an excellent resort. The hospitality is top notch, starting from when they pick you up from the airport and lasting throughout the entire stay. They check all the boxes most high end scuba resorts do: good dive briefings, good food, nice rooms, good bar at the resort...Then we get to the 5-star area, which includes an amazing pool, spa, turn-down service in the rooms, your dive gear being carried to and from the boat without you lifting a finger, and the large and air conditioned camera room, full of workstations that have outlets and towels for you to do whatever is needed (I observed they locked the room at night too which I loved).

What I really appreciated about Solitude is the small touches. Like, refreshments, snacks, and hot towels after your dive, even though you're still immediately going back to the resort to relax in between. Or the sandwiches and waters provided at airport pickup for the long drive to the resort. Or how the dive guides would help underwater with the extra tools on the camera, like a snoot or macro diopter, to focus and get the best picture possible. They really made us feel at home throughout the entire process, and it was a great experience.

The diving operation was very professional and well run. The boats are quick to reach the dive sites and are incredible easy to assemble gear then enter, plus exit the water via the ladder. They also include a rinse bucket both on the boat and on the dock for cameras. Before each dive, a detailed dive briefing was visualized and discussed. I appreciated their flexibility to accommodate a Mandarin fish dive on one of the days, which involved shifting dives earlier in order to do the night dive earlier. The dive guides were fantastic.

I would 100% go back to this resort next time I am in Lembeh.

Solitude Lembeh is an excellent dive resort. The resort and dive staff are very friendly and they have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The transfers are easy and they even brought water and a snack box for the hour long ride from the airport. Meal times are a blast as the menu is extensive with both local and western dishes. After your scrumptious meal, you choose what you want for your next meal. Lunches and dinners include a starter, main and a dessert. They even arranged a BBQ and a song and dance on our last night as we came with a group.
The camera room is large and has at least 20 camera stations. There is an infinity pool next to the restaurant/bar, and there is also a spa which offers very reasonably priced massages.
The dive operation is excellent with great guides and good air fills. The dive boats are fast with one of their boats having two 200hp engines and the other boat having two 150hp engines. After the dive, a hot face towel is presented to everyone, which is an amazing touch. Water, fruit and bath towels are also available on the dive boat. All surface intervals are done back at the resort which is great.
