Jinny Lee

Live Aboard Event coordinator

The CEO of of Divebnb platform. Her narrative begins with the passion of one woman who traveled the world, one tank at a time, before launching DIVEBNB with her friends, who are similarly scuba diving enthusiasts. That lady is no less than the CEO of DIVEBNB, Soon Jin Lee (a.k.a. Jiny).

Jiny began her career in the travel industry as a Hilton Hotel’s Guest Service Officer for Korean and Japanese clients in the Philippines. She would visit nearby provinces in her spare time to explore the country. She found her passion for scuba diving on a trip to Boracay (a popular Philippine tourist destination). After she earned her certification, Jiny quit her job to pursue scuba diving full-time, and the rest is, as they say, history.

Jiny and four others served as Directors in the initial launch of DIVEBNB in July 2017. The company had a challenging start. The company spent the first two years building the DIVEBNB platform, getting the word out about the new system, and meeting with new partners. DIVEBNB’s management team was restructured in the fourth quarter of 2019, and work on rebuilding the DIVEBNB platform began. Before it could attain formal recognition in the scuba diving sector, DIVEBNB, like many other businesses, was forced to endure significant losses during the two-year hiatus caused by the pandemic.

I've attended both yoga and pilates classes with Lotte. Lotte has a calming aura which makes you feel comfortable and enjoy the flow. I personally did not enjoy yoga, but Lotte was the only instructor who was able to put me at ease. Her pilates class were also easy to follow but a great sweat. I felt sore after. Would really recommend Lotte if you're trying yoga or pilates for the first time.

Lotte has an energy like no other person I know! Her aura and her ability to put others to ease makes her very special. I have attended Lotte's yoga charity session to raise funds to help school kids in Philippines. Her flow yoga concept of infusing dance with yoga made the class so beautiful and fun, yet ensuring a great workout. Lotte is very poised while conducting her classes and she has a unique gift of versatility, where she can adapt her style to the audience providing the personalised services.

Lotte is an amazing instructor and by far the best Pilates instructor! She has taught me the right posture in every move and stretches and these have helped me to manage aches and pains in my body. Now I feel much stronger not only in body but mind! And I like that she is very encouraging and pushes me to my fullest potential. Love you Lotte!

Diana Yeo - UBS SG Pilates Client

Before starting yoga, I had chronic lower back pain and my body was very stiff that I couldn't even reach my toes when standing. After attending my very first yoga class with Lotte, I was given hope. Lotte is really encouraging and so I decided to have private lessons with her. It's one if the best decisions I did for my health and wellness. She really helped me with my weak areas. Being very patient with me, encouraging me that I can do it. Now, I can't believe that at 40, my body is even more flexible than I was in my younger years. Truly grateful to God that he gave me Lotte as my yoga teacher. Now, I'm living a happier and pain free life. Forever grateful to you Lotte! Love you!
