    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.

    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!

    ... I was not sure what to do. She seemed pretty busy and I had no idea how long the practice would last. I decided to go and look for swimming trunks. That seemingly simple task took forever. I just could not find any trunks in my size! Finally, I braced myself and walked into the Billabong showroom. I got my size, but it cost a small fortune. Oh well, they do last a long time. Don't they? I got back to the hotel, and waited for Caroline. It was most logical ...

I was soon bed bound for the rest of the day, feeling exhausted, dizzy and sick I decided bed without dinner was absolutely fine with me, so the girls went out themselves. Throughout the night I was sick many times, and this is by far the most I'll I've been this trip, all off one dodgy ...

    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'.

    Jago's perspective; This morning we got up and had pancakes. After my mum and dad said if I go on a snorkelling trip with them I could have some special treats. On the boat we headed for Gili meno where we would see beautiful fish and a gigantic ship wreck. When my dad was in the ocean snorkelling I spotted the first turtle it was pretty small. Chris's perspective; Following the normal breakfast of fresh fruit, pancakes, omelettes and delicious Lombok coffee the negotiations began ...
