If you are going to go diving in the Perhentians then you owe it to yourself to stay at the Bayu Dive Lodge and dive with Alu Alu divers. I have stayed with them on several occasions and taken several PADI courses with them and received by far the best scuba instruction I have ever had. They may expect a lot from you but it will be rewarding and you will feel like you have aquired the skill level needed for the course completed. Martin, Saana, Maryanne, Riina, Flo, Donny and Paulo were patient, courteous, professional and thorough with equipment preparation, instruction, briefings and guidance. The equipment in top quality and maintained, the facilities are comfortable and the dedication to quality instruction and procedures is evident. Safety equipment and contingency planning is in place and is part of the emphasis during their diving. You will not be disappointed with your decision to dive with them. The entire staff make you feel welcome and will go above and beyond to make your stay fun and enjoyable.
I am currently living in Bangkok and prefer the dive atmosphere in the Perhentians over most of the Thai islands and beaches.....plus it is a very economical place to stay and dive. I just hope I can go back one more time before I have to leave southeast Asia.
