Reviews (1)


Thalassa Dive Resort in Lembeh, Indonesia, is a diver's haven that offers an unforgettable and unique underwater experience. Tucked into a small bay on the shores of Lembeh Island, this resort caters to divers of all levels and prides itself on its exceptional service.

The resort's accommodations are comfortable and well-maintained, with spacious rooms and private terraces that offer beautiful ocean views. Three new bungalows were under construction during my stay, and those look like they will be beautiful. The staff's attention to detail and warm hospitality add to the overall appeal of the resort.

Thalassa Dive Resort offers easy access to diving in the Lembeh Strait, famous for its macro marine life. The dive center is staffed with experienced and professional guides who ensure that divers have the best chance of spotting unique and fascinating critters. The resort's dive facilities, while small, are top-notch, and their commitment to responsible diving and marine conservation is commendable.

The on-site restaurant serves meals with both local and international options, catering to various tastes and dietary preferences. All of the meals I had at the resort were excellent. I think it is the only resort in Lembeh with a wood fired pizza oven. Overall, Thalassa Dive Resort is a fantastic choice for those seeking an unforgettable diving experience in the Lembeh Strait, complete with comfortable accommodations and outstanding service.
