My wife and I have traveled to many dive resorts but have to admit, this small boutique dive hotel is a top resort for comfort, intimate, and overall a must do place to go to if you want easy diving but bountiful sea life. The 10 villas are roomy with both an inside and outside shower. The air conditioning works perfectly and there is plenty of storage. The views from the dinning level are spectacular as the sky is ever changing along with the various boating life on the straits is fascinating. The dive shop is undercover with freshwater rinse tanks and a really great camera cleaning.assembly, storage room. The food is either Asian or Western. However our policy, when in country, eat the local food that is served on the menu. The staff is great and very responsive to your requests.
I would also take a day off and take a town tour. It includes everything from a large open market to see the various types of fruits, meats, fish, grains, etc are not only sold but various dishes are prepared and sold. The shear number of fish brought in at the sea food landing is amazing. It comes from all over and consists of just about everything that you can imagen is available. We also saw temples, and the local zoo which was unique.
The diving was as expected, as you can't ask for anything more. I spent 10 days in Bonaire and saw 2 frogfish. On one dive here, I saw 7 frogfish. There are more critters that you can ever expect with one of our favorites being the coconut octopus.
I would suggest if you think about traveling to this resort, spend 5-7 days in Singapore, it's worth it. Also go on line and pull up Lembah Straits video's to see what you can expect, especially if you are a photographer. Enjoy the trip if you go because there is no other place like this.
