Bastianos Lembeh has relocated to a new location at formerly Froggies Lembeh

BASTIANOS LEMBEH has relocated to a new location

March, 10th 2022

Dear Customers, Colleagues and Partners,

First of all, we would like to thank you for your support to us in the past few years before the pandemic. We hope everyone is able to go through these difficult times and rebuild/restructure with the confidence that can offer your clients a better holiday experience.

We are pleased to announce that BASTIANOS LEMBEH has relocated to a new location at (formerly) FROGGIES LEMBEH.

Owner of Bastianos Lembeh Mrs Candy Bastiaan and owner of Froggies Lembeh, Mr Mor Bastiaan has an agreement of working together in the diving business by merging both resorts at Lembeh Island to be BASTIANOS FROGGIES LEMBEH and hence we will provide all management for the newly located dive resort BASTIANOS FROGGIES LEMBEH.

This merger plan has been prepared since 2015 and is finally being realized at this time and with our great experiences many years in the diving industry, BASTIANOS FROGGIES LEMBEH will provide an enhanced dive experience – closer to all dive sites, new facilities, dedicated camera room, beautiful sunsets, and a shorter boat ride from/to mainland. Of course, all existing bookings of both resorts will keep going and we will handle your booking at the new location.


We have started building a new swimming pool at this new location in early March and the target for completion would be sometime around July, and a new dedicated camera room will start to build on June.

We feel optimistic this step ahead will bring our business cooperation to be better in the future and we look forward to hearing from you should you have any questions about this move as well as welcoming your guests in the coming months and years!
