“Great place for divers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

One of the best hotel to stay if You are a diver. Nice and spacious room. Great spa. Good quality of food and big choise for breakfast. Dive center is almost perfect....You can dive easily from the shore. I wish I could stay there longer.

Tauch was perfectly located directly opposite the wreck with a fabulous ocean view. The rooms were exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated and had views to die for. The staff were very friendly and we even had the Managers make us feel at home. They were eager to help. We also made good use of the Dive centre and our children, who had never dived before felt very at ease and comfortable with the skilled instructors. Overall, a wonderful experience.

I think in Tulamben...Tauch seem look like good place ...However....at the first we came Tauch....No one in the lobby...and Although the view is good the guide of diving is good ....but the service is not so good... the floor is dirty ..and there wasn't any roomservice ,no one will chean your room if you stay many days...and the food also bad~~have a lot gourmet powder in your food and not very healthy...and the manager here was unfriendly....Although Tauch has nice place ....but all this ruin everything....You can't see any balinese friendly ....It's very disappointed....

Tauch 在 Tulamben 算是地理位置不錯....房價在此區算貴 可惜管理不佳...我們到時 Check in 沒有任何服務人員在...我們住最貴房型 房間不小 但不適很乾淨 地板很髒...風景View我很喜歡 但服務態度卻很掃興! 住這裡幾天都不會有人清理房間 食物很不好吃 尤其添加物非常多 吃了很不健康 包你口乾舌燥一整天 ...尤其管理飯店的manager常高傲 說話正眼不看你一眼 很不友善...讓你覺得非常不受歡迎 ~~總體而言 本來被他風景吸引的我 還很開心 現在卻因為這些任人不舒服的感覺 想快點退房...太可惜~~!!

Me and my wife came here to enjoy the premises and for an occasional snorkeling trip. Staff was friendly and helpful, but the place was a bit boring when you wanted to do something else than spend time in the sea.

We also got a room on the upper floor even though we were booking a "bungalow". The room had a bed that was about to fall apart and it felt like the room needed some refurbishment.

Still, the place has a great location, just next to the see and there are two nice pools to swim in if you prefer that. The owners are present and enthusiastically encouraging your diving and snorkeling efforts.

We enjoyed our four night stay at TT. The food was excellent, the staff very willing to help, and the room was nice enough. Our only complaint was that our bed was probably the hardest bed we have ever slept on! We dove two days with TT and the diving was pretty good. We enjoyed two dive on the USS Liberty, one at Coral Garden, one at the Drop Off. Our favorite was the Liberty. Most of our stay we were the only guests, which was pleasant. Our guides were good, but some you could tell some were burned out, as there are only three guided shore dives at the resort Nice pool and bar and overall was a good value.

Room Tip: Get a room upstairs for a view and privacy.

After check-in reception woman told us "you must pay now." Air conditioning in our Bungalow was broken. Upgrade to a deluxe room #62. Oceanfront view blocked by a large tree. Balcony cushions stained and not cleaned from bird droppings. Pillows are hard. Bungalow faces pool bar. No oceanfront view. Ad photos are very misleading. Most staff employees seem bored, particularly restaurant employees. Spa charges are priced in Euros. No in-room complimentary plastic bottled water. Breakfast needs improvement. Pool towels are old and worn - need to be replaced. Access to a very small stone beach (no sand) for snorkeling.

Room Tip: If you like a direct and clear oceanfront view from you room go elsewhere.

This was a return trip for us to Tauch Terminal after a nine year gap.

The resort has had a lot of great improvements to the grounds and the accommodation in recent years. We would say that this is the best location to stay at in Tulemben for both divers and non-divers due to its waterfront setting, the nice grounds and its proximity to the Wreck – just a short walk along the rocky beach.

On a negative note, our arrival was not your usual friendly welcoming Balinese style. The staff were nice enough, but there was no overview of the resort or the diving operation given to us – we were left to our own self-discovery. As experienced divers and travellers we got ourselves sorted with the local dive staff who were on hand, but there did not seem to be any overall management going on of the Dive Centre, or the resort for that matter.

Things seemed to be functioning and staff were certainly friendly, but there was a noticeable lack of leadership at the resort.

Having said that, we still very much enjoyed our stay at Tauch Terminal and would recommend it to others.
