“My first taste of Bali”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

A warm generous, friendly, happy sort of people. Liberty Dive Resort in Tulamben is so lovely, quiet location, 2 minute walk to the sea, nice food, fabulous family cottage at very reasonable rates, clean pool, and the massages are to die for extremely cheap, i've only been here 4 days and have had 2 already, more to come :) The best part is the dive guides, so talented, and helpful, some of the easiest diving i've ever done, and i've done some. The beach isn't easy because it's pebbly, so the guide will carry your kit, take you into the surf, help you but the gear on in the water, then you go, SIMPLE! My husband is into serious photography including macro, his guide is Wayan Jhon, excellent at spotting subjects he would never have found, me and my daughter like pleasure diving and Tisnu, has a special place in our hearts.Well done Bali. We will be back.

Room Tip: The family cottage is superb and very reasonable.

Small town with generous people, great seeside and ofcourse best dive resort for divers and also no-divers. There are also very nice views. On one side there is oceanview, with very very black sand and wonderlful sunrise, where you can see Rinjani (Lombock) On the other side there is a magnificent vulcano M. Agung..
When you live Tulamben and Liberty dive resort you will just say: I`ll be back!!!!!!!!

Our group of 6 divers stayed here for 4 nites in early August.This is our 2nd stay at LDR in 3 years.
This time, we stayed in the new standard rooms which were large, clean and brightly lit. It has a big table where we could lay out our camera equipment. The hot shower works perfectly. Besides new aircon units there are ceiling fans in the room and porch area.
The diving was great. Our guides Wayan, Suar and Tisnu were all very enthusiastic and hard working ... starting the daily dive routine at 6am at our requests and searching for the special things we like to see. You decide where and when to dive, and pay only for the dives that you make. After every dive, you are offered hot drinks and watermelons !
The expanded resort is very spacious with nice, lush landscaping and very relaxing. The pool is cleaned daily. Wifi signal is strong and available throughout the resort
I booked by emailing Wayan the owner directly who is very prompt in his response.
The only dislike was the rather soft bed in my room which did not provide enuf support.
Overall, it was the best resort during our Bali holiday and we will be back.

This is the third time I have visited Tulamben and decided to stay at Liberty Dive Resort. There are so many reasons to keep coming back. The hospitality is wonderful, this extends from the people who clean out the rooms everyday to those serving in the restaurant as well as front of house. The owners are available and helpful much of the time. Beautiful and well kept gardens surround a choice of two pools. One of the pools kept for diving training and both with comfortable sun loungers. From the balconied upper rooms you can see the sunrise and watch the birds and butterflies. There are many well qualified, friendly and smiling dive guides to assist in finding all you could hope to see at the wreck site and beyond at there are many other dive sites available. I recommend taking a local fishing boat out to other sites, the view of the volcano behind is fabulous. If you finish diving and fancy a massage you can always get an hour of massage for just 100.000 rph.
The restaurant has a varied menu and caters for all. The menu boasts a range of pizza and seafood as well as nasi goring, satay and so much more. It is fresh and delicious. More than anything I valued being able to eat in pleasant surroundings, many other restaurants seem to be close to the main road. Comfortable, friendly, good value, clean and above all else, owned by Indonesians, putting everything back into the local economy for the benefit of the community.

Room Tip: rooms for single, couples and families are all available

This is a wonderful little place, away from the busy Bali spots such as Kuta. Seminyak and Ubud. The dive site of Liberty wreck is close by but the dive-entry is not the easiest. As you walk in the sea from the beach, you will find yourself walking on pebbles and boulders of increasing size. This, along with the waves make it quite hard to put the fins on. My guide(Nyoman) was extremely patient with me and I still remember the way he used to say, "It's okay!" with a smile! He pointed out several critters on my dive and I am very grateful for that. I also tried my dive camera here for the first time and Nyoman was very helpful in my gear management!
The hotel itself is excellent and there are two swimming pools. Very clean and everybody smiles. (No I don't mean the resort smile. They really mean it! Happy people?!)
The food was lush too. However there is a joint called wayan's at a distance of 4 mins and the food there is cheaper but simple.
You can have a great massage at just $10 in the resort and it is done out in the open, on a raised platform with thatched roof, overlooking the pool! Think Balinese King!
The only thing I would say is they don't have their own divers' insurance so make sure you are insured before you go. Having said that, everything runs pretty smoothly and I soon stopped worrying about it.The best thing is you can pay all your bills at the end of the stay with a debit card!

Room Tip: All rooms are good! We had the cheaper ones and they were fab!

We were hesitant to even to go Tulamben because we have young children but we really wanted to get our advanced open water certificate and get a chance to take a look at the USAT liberty wreck. From day one when we contacted the LDR we could perceive the excellent customer service. We arrived and were not disappointed. We stayed in a two bedroom villa and truly enjoyed the food and service. The boys loved running around in the perfectly manicured gardens and loved splashing in the pool. The staff was very friendly and quickly learned their names. The resort arranged for us to get our certificate. Our instructor, David, was amazing. We learned a lot from him. The gear is in good condition and we were very happy to be able to travel as a family and do some diving. The beach is not sandy so not ideal for kiddos but the pool and the beautiful gardens kept them entertained.

We stayed 5 nights here, which in retrospect was far too long, 3 would be plenty.

We had a bungalow which was spacious, spotless and very comfortable.
I had my Advance open water and my partner had never dived before so he decided to do the open water course. The dive staff were so relaxed and friendly, and there were no problem with anything we wanted to organize.

The hotel staff were just as friendly and the service was excellent.
if you have a lot of spare time (like we did) you can go snorkeling and still see lots!

Its is the perfect place to relax in the sea/by the pool if you have had a hectic few weeks traveling and enjoy diving!
