Villa Alba is certainly a little out of the way as is located on the Northern corner of Bali with a 2+ hour drive from the airport. It was certainly not what I expected but what I got was a perfect place to have a diving holiday. Alex, Jessica, Made and the entire staff treated us as welcome guests and the stay seemed to fly past and was over all so quickly.
The rooms are of excellent quality with very few hiccups and are cleaned and refreshed every day. From reading all the reviews I certainly agree with them. The food from the kitchen is good and there is a variety in dishes from Indonesian, Chinese and Western - had a certain home cooked quality that was good.
Diving was great to good depending on the waves and the dreaded rocks on entry and exit. The boys certainly looked after us and provided good photo spotting of little things. I completed 34 dives all on Nitrox and there was never a real drama and Alex provided me with a set of boots and fins when my proved inadequate for the job.
I certainly will be a return guest to Villa Alba
