Great service, from the dive crews to the resort staff.. just some comments; the room is a bit pricey for a non-airconditioned room. It's located on a cliff, so expect lotsa stairs (at least for me). Lighting should be improved, especially where there are stairs - safety hazard. But overall it was an amazing experience! Thanks!

Bastianos is not a place for sunbathing, there is no beach and are quite a few steep steps to climb before you reach the resort. The bungalows are nice and in a flowered setting. Thomas, the manager, was happy to speak his berndütsch dialect. The place is dedicated to muck diving and that was a great experience. Our guide, Recky,... More

The hotel is very well located for diving on Lembeh island and basically for diving. It's not a 5 star hotel but has all the comforts like A/c, hot and cold *fresh* water, restaurant, pool, small spa etc. At the end of the day it's a welcome comfort. The staff are very courteous and nice and go out of the... More

One of my favorite hotels on Lembeh - good location, friendly staff, excellent dive guides. Comfortable wooden bungalows with balcony and nice view. A lot of flowers everywhere. Comfortable and big dive boats, well trained and helpfull divecenter staff, big camera room.

It is called the paradise of microorganisms, which it truly is. We find things in sandy places underwater. People there are incredibly nice and warm-hearted. They do host a farewell party at the end of out stay, and it was indeed lit.

2nd trip to Lembeh. Some great dives, but the hotel + dive ops was not exceptional to say the least Manager of the resort is not friendly and thats hows in the atmosphere (compared to friendly atmosphere of Bastianos Bunaken, it is hard to think that they have any connection). No real atmosphere, which is quite unusual for a diving... More

Bastianos got a nice little spot on their own island in the Lembeh strait. Make sure to book a room with sea view and air con that doesn't stop every 6 hour. For baby divers that tried muck diving for the first time, we missed amenities outside of diving, like maybe paddle boards or kayak rental. Would loved to have... More

The only thing I didn't quite like about this property is the long climb up to the dining and rooms. Other than that the experience was excellent.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched idyllically on the west coast of Lembeh Island, overlooking the strait is Bastianos Dive Resort at Lembeh Island (then it's called Bastianos Lembeh). The key feature of Bastianos Lembeh is that it has surprisingly good facilities yet retains a very modest price. The resort has an elevated swimming pool and large open-air common room with superb sea views, free wi-fi internet connectivity, satellite TV and spa room - facilities one might expect from a mid- to high- budget resort and not one of such clear affordability. The rooms are also of a relative good quality, with Superior cottages that can be rented as air-conditioned or fan only, and Standard rooms for those looking for the cheapest deal. The cottages are stand alone properties for more guest privacy, whereas the Standard rooms are adjoining but close to the water's edge. The resort prides itself on its social atmosphere. It is a popular choice for regular divers just wanting to dive, have fun and meet people, not really for 'hardcore' diver photographers that want to do nothing but spend their time underwater. Divers will, however, appreciate our dedicated camera room and the well-appointed dive center complete with DIN/Int compatible tanks as well as nitrox and the full range of rental equipment. ... more   less
