We based our choice of this resort on it's Tripadvisor rating..that being number one in Tulamben and that rating was spot on. We arrived at the resort exhausted around 7 PM after flight straight through to Bali from the east coast..about 26 hours flight time... and then a 3 hour car ride from Denpasar to the resort. We were escorted... More

Not sure how to sum up this place. Not at all like Bali. On the plus side the food was excellent. The diving is good. The accommodation looked attractive, but: 1)The pillows were flat and I was really uncomfortable 2) The air conditioner was either not functioning properly or the controls had been deactivated. Difficult to say which. But the... More

We just spent 4 nights in the Master Bedroom #6 on our first trip to Bali for diving and we enjoyed every minute. Christiane and Pedro run a top notch resort. The resort is beautifully laid out and the staff are friendly and attentive. The dive staff are great as well and they couldn't be more accommodating. Bali diving was... More

Simply incredible. I would return to Bali just so I could stay here. Everything is superb, the rooms are incredibly well designed with comfort and convenience in mind, the service faultless, the food outstanding and the setting sublime. I can honestly say that this is the best place I have ever stayed in my life and I have traveled extensively.... More

Our first visit to Villa Markisa was in December 2012 and then we experienced the warm hospitality extended by Christiane, Pedro and their team. Nothing has changed. Christiane, Pedro and the Markisa team were still warm and welcoming. We stayed in Room 4 which afforded easy access to the Camera area and dive centre. The room amenities were excellent and...

We returned to Villa Markisa for our year-end dive holiday because we knew we would be well-taken care of. And we were not disappointed. The owners are great hosts, always warm, interested and interesting. This time, we chose Room 4 which is a great location because it is flanked by the pool, dining hall, dive centre and main house where... More

My companion and I was part of a Dive group from Aquatic World in Syracuse N.Y. (see separate review from group leader Sharon C). Arriving in the dark and shown to our spacious accommodations, it was a great delight to wake to the roar of the ocean and the lush setting that surrounds the Villa Markisa.
