Black Sand Dive Retreat
Black Sand Dive Retreat is a small six-bungalow quality dive resort located on a sheltered bay in a natural setting on Lembeh Strait, Indonesia’s Exotic Critter Capital. The resort specializes in personalized service both above and below the water, offering an exceptional dive holiday experience for discerning guests. Management with extensive experience in both the diving and hospitality industry in the area for over a decade, ensure that personal touches as well as individual attention will result in a stay as memorable as the incredible diving that draws visitors to Lembeh Strait.
Each of the six coconut-wood bungalows offers excellent views over Kambahu Bay and Lembeh Strait, and is equipped with both A/C and a ceiling fan for your comfort, with complimentary drinking water, coffee and tea close at hand. Each unit also has a walk-in closet to keep your bags and belongings organized and out of the way, as well as a walled open-air “Bali-style” garden bathroom with a hot water shower to help reheat you after long repetitive dives. The spacious restaurant offers a mix of local Indonesian, asian and western cuisine, with a well-stocked reference library as well as a TV room in which guests can review video footage, watch DVD films or international satellite television.
The Resort’s strategic location means that most of Lembeh’s 40+ dive sites are within 5 minutes of the resort by speedboat. Each boat holds a maximum of 4 guests only. Black Sand guides and Bruce Moore have thousands of dives logged in the strait, which means that the team knows about and can find those special critters you desire. Nitrox is available and the spacious Dive Center has a dedicated camera room with individual charging stations. Right off the fine black sand beach is Black Sand Dive’s spectacular House Reef, offering shallow, calm and current-free conditions on one of Lembeh’s very best sites. Open day and night, guests commonly find marquee critters such as wonderpus, veined octopus, a number of frogfish species including the famed hairy frogfish, sea horses, devilfish, bobtail squid, bubble shells, monkeyfish, stargazers, stonefish, and numerous varieties of ghost pipefish, stingfish and waspfish, along with much more.
