The most enjoyable part of my Bali trip! Ketut is a very sincere and down-to-earth man, same goes for his family. His eldest son Bayu took good care of us when snorkelling, his wife's lunch was heavenly, and Ketut himself shared with us many things and that gave us a deeper insight into Bali and Indonesia.
When we reached, I left my camera in my driver's car. Ketut assured us that he will get it while we sat resting at his hideaway enjoying a coconut drink. He waited for 20min at the carpark without complaint and finally got us our camera.
The snorkelling was a comfortable 400m stretch with absolutely clear waters and plentiful marine life. The lunch was extraordinarily tasty and wholesome. It even catered well to a vegetarian like me :)
After lunch, we chatted with Ketut and family. Through the conversation, we got to know that he only set up this business 6 months ago. By his estimation, it would take about 5 years to breakeven the cost of renting the land. He has previous experience with other commercial snorkelling / diving companies in Bali, but he felt that those were not personalised and encountered complaints from customers.
All in all, this is DEFINITELY the snorkelling place to go in Bali as it is priced very affordably, good food, warm and sincere people.
Thank you Ketut and family. We are very touched by your hospitality!
