La P'tite Kepa Bungalows & Diving
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We stayed 2 weeks here and would love to have stayed longer. It is a really unspoilt place, pure nature and beauty. The reefs are fantastic for diving and you are are likely to see many things you have never seen before- pygmy sea horses, frog fish, dolphins or even mola mola. Snorkelling in 1metre of water in front of our bunglaow we saw baby black tip reef sharks and blue spotted sting rays. There are 3 small beautiful white sand beaches on the island, the last you reach by climbing over the rocks.

It is extremely quiet here- we loved that. There is a small village on the island also and the people are very friendly. Cedric Anne and the girls are a lovely family, very laid back and took us in as part of the family.

We took the deluxe bungalow in the end as they were full but we stayed in it all the way through as we adored it so much. Really nice for a family with a big deck with sofa and hammocks out front. You have your own solar electricity and more of a breeze than the smaller bungalows.

Food is plentiful and healthy- fish and rice almost every day and lots of good veggies. You will need to enjoy fish or veggies to get the most out of your stay here as it is communal eating, not a la carte.

As I said, excellent diving, good kit, large comfortable dive boat. But, you need to feel confident in your own ability to dive here as no one will check your air, ask if you are ok or do your buddy check etc - it is very informal. Just worth knowing. I have only done 70 dives and I was fine.

After 4 months travelling in Indonesia this is our favourite place by far.

Owner didn't reply to our attempts at contact so we turned up on island to check out the situation. When we got there we were not greeted. We were instead told "full" and not to disturb or talk to her guests. Beautiful island but lots of rubbish on the beach. Wouldn't stay there.

Dear Harissgillian,
Effectively it was full when you came here. That's why we are surprised that you can give a value ("terrible"...) about our resort as you never staid neither dove with us. This is not relevant to our services, but only to the contact we had and your subjective feeling about it.
So I will just answer about this contact: you told me you could not beleive we will be full also the next days and asked to have a look at the bungalows. I answered we prefer not people walking through the bungalows when guests are relaxing on their terrace, to respect their privacy. I still think this is our role to take care about our guests' quietness.
With regards. Anne
