We bring dive groups to destinations world wide. We are owners of Aquatic World Dive Shop in North Syracuse New York. We recently brought a group of 13 to Wakatobi and followed our week there with four nights at Villa Markisa. We work hard to deliver great diving, accommodations, food, and service. Our stay at Villa Markisa was an uplifting... More

My wife and I travelled from the USA to Bali, and we loved Ubud very much. However, Villa Markisa is the reason we will return to Indonesia. The diving was wonderful, and the resort was perfect. The staff was great and very accommodating. The rooms and food were great. The rooms are very modern, yet blend perfectly with the grounds.... More

The resort is well maintained both the rooms and the beautiful garden. The dive centre is efficiënt and most of the dive guides are very helpfull and experienced. Mainly critters and muddiving. The coral is not great or special. The food is good and sufficient but could be more authentic (Asiatic/Indonesian). Obviously totally orientated the Western tourist (in majority German... More

Villa Markisa is located near Talumben on the northeast shore of Bali. From the Denpasar airport it is about a 60 mile trip to the resort. Due the traffic and road conditions, allow at least 3 hours for this journey. The accommodations are spacious and nicely appointed with very good air conditioning. My bungalow had a large veranda overlooking the... More

We have had an outstanding two weeks at Villa Markisa. The diving was always tailored to our individual requirements and echoed the high standards of service we found throughout the resort. It was all so different to the big group 'diving by numbers' we have become used to in Egypt, the USA, and even some swanky Caribbean operations. We pretty... More

Villa Markisa provides a safe, high quality dive experience in a well run comfortable resort in rural East Bali. The resort offers great safe diving for beginners as well as interesting and diverse dive sights for more experienced divers. As opposed to Nusa Panida, an island in the south with great drift diving, Tulamben is much calmer and safer. Many... More

Stayed 4 nights in a bungalow and we could immediately tell when we arrived that this would be good. Located on top of the black Tulamben beach with a muckdive site just outside, the resort is very well planned and every detail is perfect and well organized, the garden is beautiful with the pool area and restaurant in the center...

For our family Villa Markisa was as close to paradise as one can get! Everything was just perfect for a relaxing 8 days we spent there. Both the divers and non-divers loved the time we spent there. It is located in a very quiet local area few kilometers south from Tulamben. Only one other (dive) resort is located in the... More
