Getting a decent speed boat service to one of the many islands just off Bali is a lottery, just going off the reviews alone, it seemed to be this way.

Luckily Arthamas Express was flawless for us for our day trip to Nusa Lembongan. We had booked our tickets in advance via a third party website (12 Go Asia) and paid roughly £30 return for two people. We arrived at the port roughly 30 minutes before departure and showed our confirmation receipts to the staff at the desk and we were given our lanyards. Do note that the departure / arrival times are estimated, so expect slight delays.

Be smart and realise you probably will have board the boat in the water on both sides as there’s no dock at Sanur, and wear appropriate clothing, also if you’re in flip flops or any footwear, I’d recommend keeping this on your person and not in the basket.

The staff help you board the boat on and off each side, they were really helpful, the speed boat was brilliant and took roughly 45 minutes to get the Lembongan.

Professional, caring and safe.

We had a relatively smooth trip over, boat slowed down for debris in the water. Staff were professional, caring and it was not overbooked.

Trip on the way back was a little bumpy in spots. The wind and sea had picked up and I was quite nervous. Staff checked on me several times during the trip.
There were only 29 of us on the return trip and they used their bigger boat, despite the smaller one sitting at the Lembongan port and the small number of passengers.

We’ve used scoot, D’Camel, Marlin and Rocky previously.
Had some hairy experiences with other operators with engine trouble (and stuck out at sea) on what should be a 30 minute give or take journey.
I’d always thought they were all pretty similar in their offerings.

However I was super impressed on boat/service and safety and would highly recommend these guys as your first choice.

We booked the boat to lembongan from Ubud using Dangap dangap tours. The pickup and return were included in the price (200k per person each way) and we were picked up from outside our hotel at 10:15 (exactly when they said we would be). The journey from Ubud to Sanur tool about 40 mins and the fast boat takes about 30 mins to get to lembongan. I would recommend this company. Everything went smoothly and was very professional. They whatsapp you frequently to check there are no issues.

My wife and I paid around $112 for the boat and hotel pick up and drop off. The island itself is nice, but there isn’t much to do there.

We got picked up at 0730 and arrived for 0815. The boat doesn’t leave until 9ish so we sat around for an hour waiting. The boat was then delayed by 30 mins for an unknown reason.

The seating arrangements are cramped. There is pretty much no room for your legs (I am 5ft 10”) and it is very uncomfortable.

The last boat left at 4.15 and you need to be back at the waiting point at 1530 - this is pointless. The boat did not leave until 1645 so again, another hour of pointless waiting.

The drop off back to the hotel was a nightmare. There was not enough transport for the people who had booked, so drivers were doing shuttle runs then coming back to get people. 45 minute wait for transport after we were dropped off. Traffic was so bad we ended up walking the last 3km to the hotel. We didn’t get home until 1930 due to the chaotic transport

All in all, not worth going to the island let alone paying the price for an overcrowded boat.

Our hotel in Lembongan called the pick up service. We were informed that Arthamas car will pick up us up at 10:30 latest, the boat was scheduled to leave 11.
We were early and waited 45minutes. Hotel whatsapped Arthmas driver several times and driver anserwered that he is coming. At 11:00 the hotel driver drove us to the harbour. We noticed that Arthamas driver was already there (so they forgot to pick us up) and the boat was about to leave. Luckily we handled the transportation by ourselves, otherwise would have missed the boat.
the boat trip itself was tolerable, boat smaller than in the pictures, hard to fit three adults to next to each other. Luckily weather was ok, not too windy, but it was really really hot inside the boat.

We found Arthamas Express very professional and punctual. I was concerned about some of the reviews I’d read about other companies but we felt extremely safe with Arthamas. There were plenty of visible life jackets under the seats and the staff were very helpful both in Sanur and Lembongan. The transfers from the airport and back to our accommodation in Seminyak were great too. Would definitely use them again. Thanks so much guys. 👍🏼👍🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Can't rate this company enough. As I was travelling solo I didn't want to leave anything to chance as I read you have to wade in from the boat to Nusa Lambongan. I was worried how I would carry my big suitcase😅
I got the hotel pick up option and they were on time and so efficient. You were driven, checked in and your luggage was on the bait when you boarded. The boat itself is lovely and then they drop you to a place and a transfer comes to pick you all up and drop you at your hotel.
All my luggage was carried for me at all times.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
I am so glad I choose them and would 200% recommend to a friend.

Good place, has even a lovely swimming pool with a view to the beach and ice cream while you waiting. They also pick you up on your hotel for a small extra cost. In my case they didn’t even charged.

Travelled with Arthamas to, and from Nusa Lembongan last week.
The booking process was quick, and communicating with them before the day was easy.
Sanur port is chaotic, but the check-in and trip itself, both ways, was smooth and enjoyable.
Their staff are friendly, and the boats are clean, and not overloaded.

Highly recommend them, and will definitely use them again.
