Staying at Sea Breeze Dive Resort was like living the dream.
I'd read review before going but found that even though there were commets about electricity etc that that was the same for everywhere on the island. In fact, Sea Breeze has a new generator and the island is providing almost around the clock electricity now. Having travelled to other small islands in Indonesia I found the biggest perk was that the shower water was fresh water not just desalinated. Terry has an internet stick for those who need to stay in touch, but the setting is such that the idea of connecting to the real world is something to be actively avoided.
The staff within the hotel spoke exceptional English & Ronald's willingness to help & try to anticipate what we would need was greatly appreciated. The food was yummy and always enough even for those logging more than 4 hours bottom time a day. (The Smirnoff Black they had at the bar was also delicious). And always there were smiling staff cleaning, doing grounds work, maintenance and general upkeep.
The diving was superb. The bottom time was dictated by NDL & air consumption, not some arbitrary 1 hour dive. The dive guide (Charles) was able to show me some of the smaller critters that I may have overlooked and the boat crew were always helpful & picked us up as we surfaced. There is a brand new light & airy compressor room and they are in the process of renovating the Dive Center. It is also now one of only 3 places in Indonesia where you can try Tech diving & Marc the instructor was obviously very experienced & knowledgeable when he gave me the opportunity to try the rebreather. They have 4 speed boats which are all very comfortable, well maintained & set up perfectly for diving from.
