My husband and I had an amazing vacation at Kalimaya. We were looking for a dive destination away from all the crowds with great accomodations, amenities and diving. Kalimaya exceeded our expectations and looking forward to going back. The managers (Tegan and Stuart), staff and dive crew were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed Tegan and Stuart's conversations at meal time; it creates a great family/friend atmosphere. The rooms were great; bungalow style on the beach. We could see the sunrise over the water from our room. AC in the bedroom and outdoor shower in the back. Meals were served at a common table. Breakfast fare consisted of fruit, cereal and several choices for hot items. Lunch is 2-course and dinner is 3 courses; again options available. There were homemade snacks

Thank you very much for your review. We're very glad that you had a great time. I'm glad you loved Jimmy and Marco's talent for finding the small critters! Nudibranch are also one of my favorite animals to find, and i think over the years i've spotted nearly 150 species... on the house reef and surrounding sites alone! Hope you are well and we can welcome you back again soon! Best regards, Eric.

How can I possibly put in words what I think about this place?!? The resort lies nestled into this private bay in the middle of nowhere on the north east tip of Sumbawa. It's beautifully landscaped. It features the best sunrise in the world. The bungalows are specious and super clean. The food is just excellent! And the diving unreal. Talk about being away from the crowd!!! The corals are just stunning. I don't think I have seen such a biodiversity and healthy coral life anywhere else. The muck diving is to die for! Spool many different species of nudies, octopus, frogfish etc. And let's not forget the mantas and sharks! A-mazing. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful in all areas: dive crew, housekeeping, chefs and waiters and of course the managers! Job well done. I

The location of this resort is incredible, with breathtaking views from each bungalow looking out across the beach. You can even watch the sunrise over Komodo from the comfort of your own bed. These same views follow through to the open dining area and pool, just a few steps away from the bungalows. The bungalows themselves have ample space, including a balcony, bedroom and outside shower room/WC (all with AC). All is tasteful decorated and feels like great quality throughout. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served each day. There are a couple of menu choices for each course and we very much enjoyed every single meal. By far the best food we have experienced on any dive trip. The diving was exceptional. We dived on 7 days and did not once see any other divers or dive

Hi Matt, Thank you so much for the awesome review! It was a pleasure to have you at Kalimaya and chatting with you and Kat around the dinner table, not to mention our awesome house reef dive! I hope the photos of the pair of ribbon eels in the hole turned out well. Hope you had a safe trip home! Come back soon! Eric.

Our family of four just spent 5 days at Kalimaya. My wife and I have been diving all over the world including in some of the most highly rated spots. In my view, Kalimaya ranks at the very top of all of our dive experiences. We completed about 12 dives and they were all incredible. The coral is both alive and abundant. The diversity of live is exceptional. The dive masters (Jimmy and Marco) were phenomenal. Our two boys are new to diving and both Marco and Jimmy were scrupulous in terms of following all safety procedures and watching out for them. Both of them know the dive spots they are guiding incredibly well and their knowledge of the life on the reefs is almost scientific. The accommodation is not opulent but very comfortable particularly for a dive focused resort.
