the behavior of the instructor was not good at all. there was no hospitality and I felt like cheated because i had to pay around 300 MYR as compared to other dive shops on the same beach.

In did my SSI open water @ Alu Alu divers. My experience was very good. All the instructors were well experienced and technically proficient. A little problem to understand the British accent of my instructor :) but that is fine. All the elements of the course were properly conducted. (book, video, swim test, float test, written test and 4 dives)... More

I undertook my Advanced PADI here (written a seperate review on the Bayu Lodge). They made my learning experience here a memorable one, Sam Beer my instructor was very patient with me given I was out of practice with diving), and in no time I had the confidence again to push through my advanced. Equipment was generally of a good... More

I took my SSI cert in early June with the support of the diving instructors at Alu Alu divers. I was admittedly a nervous first-timer but the team was super professional and helpful, and the whole experience was great. We saw shark, turtles, boxfish, "Nemos", barracuda, you name it... I can only recommend these guys, you won't regret it. Bayu... More

We made a return visit to Bayu Dive Lodge & took their package which included 8 boat dives each. The dive team were good - all English speakers, despite some of them not having English as their first language. All are enthusiastic & want the customer to get as much out of their dive courses or fun dives as possible.... More

I went snorkelling; the dive instructors were nice enough but the trip was very much focused on the divers - I was mainly left to fend for myself. The first stop was good for divers, and completely useless for snorkellers, being too deep and too rough to see anything from the surface.

If I had to choose between heaven and AluAlu, Id choose AluAlu. The beach is amazing, the staff is really nice, accommodations are very good (ac, hot shower, nice bed, towels!). Food isn't the best but the restaurant next to it has fresh seafood and there is a bar with everything you want. Diving in perhentians is really awesome. Go... More
