Bayu Dive Lodge is a very nice Lodge. The diving schools good and has some good facilities. The restaurant is pretty good but we will prefer the neighbours. On Bayu Dive Lodge the "restaurant people" were very slow. Sometimes we have to wait for 1 hour or more. Sometimes also the bill was not good, and are some thinks on... More

Everything is good except the food! You can try the food in the restaurant just few steps away besides the lodge. The rates of this lodge is slightly lower compared with others lodge / resort hence please do not expect much. Overall rooms are comfortable.

I guess I have never written a review that bad, but Bayu Dive Loge is definitely not the place to be on this beautiful island. Already in the first night we had a RAT in our sea view lodge bedroom!!! After talking to the staff they managed to catch the rat the following morning and tried to fix the leaks... More

Didn't stay at the Lodge - but dined at the restaurant. Service was extremely slow - one hour wait for hamburger at lunch and it wasn't busy. Staff not helpful at all. Wouldn't bother going there again

Upon our arrival we were given rear bungalow near a generator, or compressor. We naturaly complained, and manager finaly agreed to have the machine turned off during night. Room was basic and small, but clean, and a/c was working ok. This side of Besar island is not the best, either for snorkling or swimming because it gets very shallow at... More

There's another recent review entitled "Good, but..." I totally agree. Here's our experience, modified on a shameless cut & paste here. Both good and bad here - please read....... Diving (unknown): When we were here last week, Alu-alu was understaffed and overbooked. Dive master Guylan was friendly though understandably swamped. He recommended us to the dive shop at Arwana for... More

We booked two rooms for two couples, one for 3 nights and the other one for 2 nights, via Agoda.com. A week before my partner and I decided to stay a third night, booked it on Agoda and I even emailed Bayu Diving Lodge to make sure the booking was confirmed. They replied to say the third night was confirmed.... More

Both good and bad here - please read....... Diving (Good): Organised, professional, decent kit, decent knowledge of the local environment (which, incredibly for Asia they are keen to protect) lots of dive sites and small dive-group numbers. Accommodation (Good): Decent chalets/huts that are sensibly priced but have no hot water - fine though as normal water is warm. Cleaned only... More
