I got a special internet offer of a 5 night B and B stay, with 10 shore dives and return transfer from anywhere in Bali for a very good price.
Pick up from the airport was efficient and the drive, whilst long was very interesting. Tulamben was very quiet and the resort even quieter, with only three rooms occupied on the first couple of nights. After a little bit of negotiation I managed to move from the older block by the restuarant to a far newer and better room by the dive centre.
I had a wonderfully relaxing stay. The accomodation is absolutely beautiful: a large perfectly appointed and beautifully furnished room with decking leading onto the the garden , the pool and the sea beyond was fantastic to wake up to every morning.
The dive arrangement was great , all of the equipment was prepared and rinsed by the guides. All of the other guests were from Germany and being very experienced divers they did self-guided dives on the Liberty wreck and the sites in front of the resort. This meant that for virtually all of the dives I did it was just me and a guide. It was such a treat to have the wreck and the reefs virtually to ourselves and to have 60 minute plus dives every time. The guides were incredibly cheerful and kind and helpful, and we saw so many beautiful creatures. I did 4 night dives on the wreck which were fantastic, we saw the bumphead parrotfish heading out for the night, more coming back into the wreck for the night , others falling asleep , and more waking up ! Other highlights were the four relatively friendly black tipped sharks in residence on the reef opposite the resort, massive groupers inside the wreck and a cute turtle posing on the wreck's coral-covered gun.
After the night dives I often had a 10 USD massage on the terrace under the starlight from one of several lovely massage ladies.
If anything could have been a little better, then perhaps the food might have been a teeny weeny little bit better, but the menu was very varied and the service was incredibly fast. However the resort is in a very isolated area and the standard of accomodation, the wonderful diving and the lovely staff more than made up.
After 5 lovely days of Balinese sunshine . relaxing, pampering and diving with wonderful marine creatures, I was dropped off at Sanur, truly feeling like a new me.
