This resort is conveniently located. My cottage room is very spacious and spotless clean. What I mean clean is even all shelvings inside the wardrobe and under the working table are dust-free. They also changed fresh towels on a daily basis too.
Restaurant is airy and is located next to the swimming pool. Staff is very friendly. They have a big selection of food and drinks on the menu. However, quality of the food is average. Simple local dishes like Nasi Goreng and Mee Goreng were not cooked properly. Fried rice and fried noodles were to the wet side. If they can make it drier, it would be perfect.
The receptionists are friendly as well. However, their organization skill is very disappointing. I booked a car to go to Candidasa 24 hours in advance. When I approached the Reception 3 minutes before the scheduled pick-up time, the lady behind the counter gave me a blank look. She even asked me a stupid question like “Did you book the car for 6 pm in the morning or in the afternoon?” Long story short. Though my request was clearly written on the whiteboard, the staff forgot to arrange the car. I ended up waiting for 23 minutes for them to call in a car on the spot.
My main purpose to Tulamben is for diving. It is good that they provided free Nitrox. Their dive guides are very good in spotting tiny critters. Other than that, they are very attentive during every entrance and exit of all shore dives. My gears were properly washed everyday after I finished the dives.
Despite of the minor flaw mentioned in paragraph 3, this will not stop me from returning to this resort in the future.
