We took the recommendations of other trip advisors who visited and were glad we stayed at Liberty Dive Resort. While it's about a three hour drive from the airport, LDR is a great place to stay whether you're a diver or not.

For those who dive, LDR is steps away from some of the best diving in Asia. The USAT Liberty wreck is a very short shore dive away from the resort. The huge amount of sea life in and around the wreck ranges from small crabs and fish to the largest groupers I've ever seen. My dive guide, Agust, is an expert on finding the smallest sea life among the coral that I certainly would have passed by on my own. On an early morning dive, Agust also led me to a school of bump head parrot fish and then reef sharks on two other dives.

For those who don't dive, there's plenty to see on land as well. Ricky from Tulamben Transport (www.tulambentransport.com) can personalize a tour that can last a half day, whole day or more and can take you anywhere in Bali. During a half day tour, we visited small Bali villages off the tourist path, the the King's main palace and two of his water palaces, a gold and silver smith with incredible hand made jewelery at very resonable prices, and ate a delicious Balinese lunch. Ricky also picked us up and took us to the airport. Since he's a family business, his prices are reasonable and better than larger tourist companies
can offer. The resort also coordinates tours and airport transportation with Ricky.

The resort itself is is 20 rooms, clean and quiet with incredibly friendly and attentive staff. Owner Wayan and his staff looked after us extremely well. When we arrived, the staff quickly moved our bags from the car to our room, offered us a menu for dinner and gave us a welcome fruit drink. The restraunt is clean, the food simple but well prepared and the service prompt, friendly and pleasant. As others have said, the banana pancakes are delicious. We stayed in a deluxe bungalow that was large, clean, comfortable and private. Though there's another resort being built next store, there's almost no construction noise. The whole resort is very peaceful and relaxing. It's a boutique hotel experience at very resonable rates

For those who want to dive, are interested in an alternative to the typical Bali tourist experience and also want a calm relaxing and peaceful stay, Liberty Dive Resort is great choice.

Room Tip: Bungalows on the North side have shade on their porch in the afternoon. they're also furtherst away from the construction on the neighboring site.

Stayed here for a couple of nights to dive.
Staff were fantastic, very relaxed and friendly.
Restaurant was ok.
Rooms were very good size, with safe and good bed.
No roosters were heard at the crack of dawn, which is a big plus.
Dive guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and relaxing dive partner.
Highly recommend this resort for both snorkelling and diving.
Easy 1 minute walk to water, or fall out of bed into the pool, and 2 minute walk to town.

Really enjoyed my stay. The hotel was great value and the staff outstanding. Two swimming pools were excellent. I did five outstanding dives with the resort and snorkelled in my spare time. Highly recommended

Our driver directed us to this hotel and we didn't bother to look at his other option. The room was spacious, clean and, for the price, in good condition. A few renovations are needed but generally it was comfortable. Two lovely pools and a passable restaurant. Their biggest plus is the diving. I only snorkel and was provided with very good quality gear for three days ($6). My companion dived five times always with the same dive master. Her gear was stored so she could access it easily and didnt have to retry and change straps every dive. She is a novice diver (30 dives) and declared this # 2,3,4,5 and 6 on her list of best dives. The Liberty wreck is only 30 metres off shore and can easily be snorkelled or dived. The water is brilliantly clear. Even 5 metres from the shore you see the most amazing fish. The walk from Liberty to the beach is about 200 metres. The term beach is loosely used as this is a rocky, volcanic, black sand beach. It's not the sort of place kids build sandcastles.

We spent in Liberty 9 days in November, 2012. Good room in the old part, 2 steps from the pool. Clean room with wardrobe, safe, refrigerator, aircon. Convenient bathroom, good bed. Dive centre is 10 meters away, restaurant - 25 meters. Best local food we tried in Bali (incl 4 other locations) Diveguide was very good. It is important for UW photographers. Real critter-spotter
