NAD Resort & Dive Center in Lembeh

Diving the Lembeh Strait is a huge drawcard for underwater sharp-shooters and Nomad Adventure Divers are focused on providing a photographer experience. The resort is managed by pro underwater photographers and they have planned the dive centre around these needs, with a logical diver flow after diving. There are lots of large rinse tanks, a camera drying room and a charging and editing room. Nitrox is available for qualified divers to maximise bottom time and photo opportunities. The clubhouse possesses a projector for photo and video shows.

Also available in the resort is a complimentary wi-fi internet, great for keeping in touch with family and friends back home. A free laundry service is an unusual welcome addition, allowing divers to bring their own equipment and not worry too much about packing lots of clothes for the trip.

The resort is easy to get to, being only a 15 minute boat ride from the arrivals pier over on the mainland. The dive sites too are only a few minutes away from the resort, so you can be gazing at stargazers, mimicking octopus and gawping at the jawfish, just as soon as you're kitted up and the dive guides have given you the '3-2-1' call.

Customer reviews: 

"Bernard and Julia can accommodate their guests (really well), it is almost like a family! The guides are very qualified and we made extraordinary meetings, we had in the possibility of choosing our sites. The rooms were simple but comfortable and very good food." - Coralie Ancelin & Eric Duchenet, France ...

"The food was fantastic, always enough, always choice, always diverse and always tasty. The New Year's Eve party was fantastic, not a single bad word and everybody, including staff, owners and guests had a fabulous evening." - Michel Engering, Netherlands ...

"Diving service was very personalised, probably because the resort is catered for a small pool of divers, so we had the chance to know the managers and guide well. Facilities met our expectations for what we paid." - Jeremy Chan, Singapore ...

"Very good staff, dive guides and boat men all very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly; efficient service, the same with the restaurant staff." - Philip Amswych, UK ...

"The service was great. All tanks were set up on arrival and divers had to do very little. Gear was even rinsed off for us and laid out to dry for departure. The resort is on the budget end of the scale so it is not the fanciest with all of the bells and whistles, but the value is very good and the rooms are functional." - David Probert, USA ...
