Two more superior cottages have been completed in Lembeh, bringing the total number to four.
All our standard cottages are being renovated during the low season: the wooden walls are removed and then sanded, the wooden floor is repaired/sanded, and then all is put back together and re-varnished.
We are also extending the balconies so that there is even more space to swing in the hammock!
Its taking about 7-10 days per cottage, and we have already finished two cottages.
All the standard cottages should be finished in a few weeks, as you can see the final result is great!
We installed our first hot water system into Standard Cottage 1. This is just a trial for now, we want to see how the loading on our electricity is affected. We installed a new & larger generator a few months ago but the power need of a hot water unit is very big and so can affect the rest of the resort.
If all goes well, we will be putting in hot water into Bunaken in the first quarter 2009. This will make night dives much more enjoyable!
Sybille has spent more than 20 years in the travel business and has dived all over Asia, and understands very well what guests want from a resort.
“Having spent alot of time as a muck-loving guest at Two Fish Divers in Lembeh, I am incredibly excited to start working here”, Sybille says, “My aim is to ensure that Two Fish is the best budget/mid-range dive resort in Lembeh Straits.”
As part of our renovations at our resort in Lembeh, we completed the new staff quarters end of Aug 2008 (see top right).
In early Sept we started refurbishing the budget rooms (see bottom), this will be completed by 1 Oct. We will then start to refurbish the dive center below the budget rooms and add a camera room, dry & wet equipment rooms, and a reception area. All this work should be finished by end-Oct 2008, so check out our web site after this time.
