Ocean Sun Dive Resort Tulamben
Ranked #2 of 14 Tulamben B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 11, 2014

This was my second time visiting Tulamben and diving with Ocean Sun, and I was really impressed by how it has grown and developed. You can tell that Ricardo takes pride in his business, and the attention to detail shows in the beautiful rooms, sparkling clean dive shop and high quality restaurant. All of the staff are friendly and helpful, the dive guides are experienced, and the price is right. A perfectly low key way to experience Tulamben. Get the sausage with breakfast...even when you're burping it into your reg all day, its still delicious!

We come back here again time after time! Ricardo and his staff provide a very cozy, laid-back yet very professional atmosphere. The diving is just great in the area and Ricardo always has some secret spots up his sleeve if you're up to some adventures. If you are more of the non-diving kind then Ricardos dad Dieter is a very knowledgeable tour tour guide for Bali and Java. The garden of the new resort turned out really nice and the pool is just perfect to cool off after a day on the scooter or after diving. The bungalows are spacious with a nice outside shower.
On top of it all you get great food and drinks at the restaurant. Best of it all, everything comes at a very reasonable price for diving, accomodation and food! I can highly recommend this little gem!

Room Tip: Choose the rooms to the right, as you want to get as far away from the neighbours roosters as possib...

A small hotel with only 10 rooms, which are big and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They also serve great food and because of the german origin of the owner Ricardo, they also have Snitzel and Bratwurst. :) All for very reasonable prices! The only bad thing were the many flies.
The attatched dive center is well equiped and the staff is professional. It's only a 5 minute walk to the beach, either to the wreck or the other dive sites (also very nice). They will bring your equipment by truck, so you don't have to carry a heavy tank.
After the dive you can take a dip in the nice pool.

Great place to stay for a few days of diving!

We were back at Ocean Sun Dive Resort again in February. What a gem it has become! Simple yet real cosy. The new garden's well-kept and there's an inviting pool to refresh ourselves. The restaurant served such a wide range of flavours we were spoiled for choices - at very affordable prices too. We think it's a great value-for-money option especially for any divers looking to go to Tulamben - needless to say, they have a very well-equipped dive center! Ps: Great underwater world around there!

A place far away from the hustle and bustle of cities and crowdy beaches.
You live in spacious bungalows with air condition and semi open bathrooms.
The resort is quite new and managed by Ricardo, a German. You can relax at a small pool, however with only a few loungers. But you are there for diving and Ocean Sun Dive Resort is a place where you can perform diving at its best. Ricardo, the owner is an experienced diving instructor and provides all the equipment you need. It is just a short walk of 3 minutes to get to the beach with pretty good diving spots like the wreck of the USS "Liberty" and an artificial coral garden.
Moreover Ricardo organise daily trips to surrounding sightseeing spots on request and provide scooters to rent for some 3 Euros a day.
There is also a small restaurant within the resort with good choice of dishes for reasonable prices.
In summary it is worth the money there and even if it is a resort you feel like home. And to boot, if the weather is good you've got a beautiful view at the Mt. Agung.
I highly recommend Ocean Dive Resort.

Thanks to Ricardo and all of his staff.

If everything matches, see you again,

Ocean Sun is one of the most beautiful accommodations we have enjoyed in Asia.

Lining a meticulously landscaped courtyard with an infinity pool at one end and Gunung Agung, Bali's highest volcano, at the other, the spacious, high-ceilinged, air conditioned bungalows, each with a porch, indoor-outdoor bathroom and stunning shower, are a perfect respite from hours under the sea.

Directly across the street and down a dirt path to the stony black sand beach is one of two shallow coral gardens about 30 meters offshore with plentiful numbers and good variety of fish for snorkeling. The other is about 500 meters north along the beach near the wreck of the USAT Liberty, one of the most accessible wreck dives in the world.

The dive shop out front of the hotel organizes dive trips and rents equipment; the snorkeling gear we got was good quality, but a bit pricey.

Rick, the somnolent German owner, his Balinese partner Yeni (luckily she handles the money) and their young staff create a friendly, family feeling. They also installed a strong router, which gives Ocean Sun great WiFi, even in the farthest rooms.

The price includes the standard Balinese western breakfast choices: Eggs, fruit, pancakes, toast, coffee, tea. Nothing to write home about, but a good start to the day.

Sadly, for a town built around a sport as strenuous as diving, the food in Tulamben is nearly universally awful. One notable exception is Warung Wayan, not quite 1km north of Ocean Sun on the sea side of the road. Ask for a table upstairs (it doesn't look like there's an upstairs but there is) and you'll get a great view of Gunung Agung as you eat.

We stayed at Ocean Sun Dive Resort in May 2013 and were more than satisfied. My wife and me (in the thirties) wanted to stay two day for some dives. We are a kind of picky and used to high standards so we had high expectations. Our at least 5 days at Ocean Sun Dive Resort were the best days at Bali.

Ric and his team are very friendly (5*), the food very good (4*), the Dive Instructors very experienced and the dive spots just fabulous (5*). From the resort it is just a 5 minutes’ walk to the dive spots which was not a hurdle at all. The Houses of the resort are new, clean, roomy and the bath spectacular. In total this is a cosy, friendly and familiar place. For sure the resort and the Diving have the best value for money in Tulamben / Bali. After Tulamben we stayed at the Oberoi in Seminyak which is the best place to be at Bali – to be honest we had enjoyed the time at Ocean Sun Dive Resort at lot more … We recommended the Resort to friends and they were very happy too.

Thanks for these unforgettable days!
Ps.: We also did 2 trips with Dieter – we could also highly recommend this nice guy. 5 * for Dieter for sure!!!
