My stay in Lembeh will change how I look at a seabed and reef forever, and I only scratched the surface… take me back now!
As we hopped out of the 4x4 and strolled to the small jetty for the final leg of our outbound travels I was filled with excitement at what the following days would have in store for me. After arranging several successful photography workshops and sending countless guests I decided it was time to pop my own Lembeh cherry.
As our luggage was loaded aboard our transfer boat, I jumped on deck and climbed up to the roof to take in the view, and wow what a view it was, an island of dense jungle and very few resorts were ahead of me.
It was around 3.30pm, and within 10 minutes we turned into the bay where we would be spending the following 9 nights, NAD Lembeh Resort. We were greeted by resort manager Sonja as she handed us with cold towels and freshly made lemonade as we sat down for a quick resort briefing. We then headed to our room to unpack the essentials, freshen up, and be ready to join everyone for dinner at 7pm.
