As an avid diver and a big fan of critters a trip to the Lembeh Straits to experience what it had to offer was always high on my list of "must go" places.
I finally got around to going in September and was joined by two close friends of mine. We had heard from friends that Two Fish Divers Lembeh was a great place to stay so we opted for that. I'm so glad we did.
From the pick up at the airport, the welcome at the resort, the cleanliness of everything, the service and the diving, everything was top notch.
Couple Matt and Dani run an excellent ship with the staff they have under them attentive, eager to accommodate and just plain happy - never have I heard a group of staff laugh so much and it brightened every day.
The accommodation was excellent; clean, spacious and very comfortable. The presence of a hammock on the balcony was a welcome sight too! Can't beat some good hammock action after diving.
There was also complimentary tea, coffee and water in the room too.
The food at breakfast, lunch and dinner was delicious and there was plenty to go around which is vital when diving morning, noon and night. My only criticism, as a self-confessed carnivore, was a lack of meat at lunch time but it is only a minor quibble!
As for the diving, I was not disappointed with what we saw! Our dive guide, Doan, was with us for the entire week and I love the policy of small groups and long dives. The long dives are necessary as there's so much to see!!
Doan was a truly superb dive guide; his ability to spot things was second to none. The boats were comfy and practical and we were well looked after by the staff on the boat, making us cups of tea or coffee and supplying us with fruit and biscuits.
After the day was done, our equipment was washed and stored for us and was waiting for us on the boat the next morning.
We also had the chance to do a free clean up dive which was a chance to do something good for the underwater environment and see some cool critters at the same time.
Matt & Dani are excellent hosts and were happy to sit and have a beer at the end of the diving day.
All in all it was a brilliant trip and I will definitely be returning!
