The thing a lot of people don't realise about Lembeh is that it's not just muck diving, the daily double dives generally go to a reef/wall location as well as a muck location.
The staff at Two Fish Divers are awesome - Dani and Matt run a location that has a relaxed atmosphere for guests - the boat crew, general staff and dive guides are friendly and efficient.
I dived here in January and had my own guide for almost all of my dives. January is the low season and the maximum number of guests at the resort while I was there was 11 people.
The budget rooms are clean and basic, but I was there to dive not stay in my room, so they were more than adequate. The shared bathrooms were clean and the hot water showers are great after a day of diving.
My dive guide, Sandy, had a keen eye and knew where to find lots of the wonderful and weird Lembeh critters. Robust ghost pipefish, ornate ghost pipefish, pygmy seahorses - Pontohi and bargibanti, painted frogfish, hairy frogfish, mantis shrimp, coconut octopus, wonderpus, demon stingers, scorpion leaf fish, wasp fish, ribbon eels, a bazillion types of nudibranches and the tiny Lembeh seadragon were amongst the highlights of my 18 dives at Two Fish. I need to return to see the Mimic Octopus - the only thing on my list that I didn't see.
I would return to Two Fish Divers Lembeh in a heartbeat - with the afternoon dive, if I was the only person who wanted to dive then the boat went out - none of this minimum number of divers caper.
The resort has wifi and Dani is currently in "negotiations" with Indosat to obtain the bandwidth that the resort pays for.
If you want a massage, room service and to lay by the pool then this is not the place for you - but if you want to dive, dive and then dive some more this is the place for you.
