Everything is great about Villa Markisa, the room; the food, the diving, the staff. I stayed there with my family, and really enjoyed my stay. Siving wise, tulamben has dive site everywhere, every corner. You could just walk out on the beach, 5 meters from the hotel; dive and get an awesome macro dive. The wreck is very nice too!

we spent a week at villa markisa, just one person of our family was actually diving but this was not problem at all. initially we thought it will be boring for the rest. but it was not. even if there's not much around. villa markisa itself is worth it to spend time there. we all loved the family atmosphere, eating...

I spent 15 days in Indonesia on a diving and sightseeing vacation (ten dives). I only spent two and a half days at Villa Markisa and wished that I’d planned a longer stay. Villa Markisa has won the trifecta of vacation destinations: location, facility, and staff. Location – the north shore of Bali. The diving is awesome. We were scheduled... More

My family dives so picked this resort because they dive. I don't and expected to be a bit bored. NOT AT ALL. This is place is worth staying at even without the diving. It is the most fabulous place I have been to in my long life. I loved, LOVED my bathroom, which was outdoors with plants galore, my dream... More

We just returned from visiting Villa Markisa in Bali. The grounds are small and beautiful and very well kept. We stayed in Room 6 (Master Bedroom in main building) and loved it. Great view of the ocean off the balcony and very comfortable and well equipped. The diving was great as were the dive guides. Two of my favorite things... More

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

A friend who dives recommended this property to me in Bali. I was expecting a typical dive resort. I was so pleasantly surprised. Small property, exquisitely managed, tranquil, great food, very attentive staff who were great in assisting with local tours as well as making our trip memorable. Great muck diving and the dive staff were just amazing finding tiny... More

If you want beachside beauty, or a quiet, peaceful, intimate place to stay in Bali, this is your place. It was ABSOLUTELY amazing and the feng shui impeccable! Christiana and Pedro and their entire staff gave us a 5-star experience from the wonderfully prepared meals, to scuba diving with native guides able to find and pick out the tiniest of... More

Beautifully set in tropical gardens with a wonderful restaurant serving a range of local foods. Diving is great, straight off the beach is home reef with lots of macro muck diving as well as many other mainly muck diving sites nearby but topped off with a great wreck dive that you will have to do at least twice. Staff are... More
