    Lovely family business

    I went to Matahari Tulamben to do my Open Water Diver certificate.

    The thing that made it special was that it was obviously a family business. It didn't feel like the impersonal conveyor belt of getting tourists in and out as quickly as possible, I felt that they cared about providing a good service.

    The staff were genuinely friendly and helpful, the dive instructor made everything feel safe, the room was clean and comfortable (the hot water even worked, which is a novelty in Indonesia!). There's nothing to do if you don't dive though, but that's the location and not really the fault of the resort. I even liked the massage at the spa, which I only took because it came free with the package - I rarely find one I like.

    Would recommend it to anyone who dives, but don't bring along kids or friends who don't want to join in unless they're content to sit in a hammock reading or get massages all day.

    Clean, Great for Diving

    They have standard with NO hot water and Deluxe with for an extra 50,000 IDR. Spend the extra, since after diving you want to take a nice hot shower. Otherwise convenient for diving the wreck. Atlantis Divers (French) use it as their hub.

    Dive Paradise!

    This place is absolutely amazing! We wanted to splurge and spoil ourselves after a 4 month backpacking trip throughout SE Asia, so we booked a package with Matahari. There are many packages to choose from and it ends up being a great deal, so we chose the 10 dives within 5 days and 4 nights. The staff accommodated to our needs constantly and we felt very well taken care of. I highly recommend the 10 dives in 5 days to anyone going to this dive resort, because there is the option of 10 dives in 4 days and I don't see how that is possible. We also had a blast on every single dive, especially the night dive to the US Liberty wreck (spooooky!). That is the main attraction out there so we dove the wreck another 2 times, and each time was totally new and interesting. Our dive master (who's name I cannot recall) was the best, as he would point out all the coolest things (esp nudibranches and tons of macrolife). It is black sand beaches so visibility was extremely clear and the water was always a great temp. The resort itself kicked butt. Our room was beautiful with a huge shower and big comfy bed. The food was decent, but always filling after a long day of diving. Once again, I highly recommend this place to anyone heading out there. Just cough up the dough and treat yourself!

    ... that being 15 meters below the ocean breathing a tank of compressed air might be a bit scary the first time you do it.

    I've had a phobia of entirely submerging my head in water since I was about 8 years old and got trapped under a rope during a swimming lesson. I was only trapped for a few seconds (how stuck can you get under a rope …

    ... Racky was chuffed that she'd been healed by a Balinese witch doctor haha. We found a few stalls with street people selling clothes and found some more small people harems, so we went for food and promised to come back. We found somewhere where we both had delicious lasagne and after as promised head back. The lady's name was Elo and we made a deal on two pairs of harems and a loose beach dress for Racky. It's unbearable having clothes on you that ...

    Two wrecks in Tulamben

    ... Ness had lost some confidence with snorkelling around fish, but she managed to overcome her fears and got straight in to the water and was relieved to learn the fish were not inquisitive here and didn't pay much attention to us. We also got sight of a tower from a Balinese temple that stood on the seafloor. The locals have aptly named it the 'submarine mailbox'.

    The Gili Islands!

    A travel blog entry by maddyaw on Oct 22, 2014

    Arrived on Gili Trawangan and won't be doing much except sleep sunbath and go out in the evenings! No culture here. Only here for three days luckily! Think Malia or somewhere along those lines but full of Aussies! Went snorkelling on our first day, paid to be taken out on a boat. It was absolutely amazing! We saw so many colourful fish, and two sea turtles! Coral reefs everywhere and the clearest blue waters I've ever swam ...

    ... various paths circumnavigating the island. Some were packed dirt, some cobble. Others were literally just sand which, unless slightly compacted, lacked the grip to cycle through. Wheeling heavy bikes through deep sand in thirty degree heat is not too fun! Thinking we were less than halfway around, we suddenly found ourselves at the beach marking the top end of the strip. Surprised with our own speed and still hours of sunshine left, we settled down on the sand. Oscar and I ...
