I had gone down to Padang Bai for a few days of diving and stopped in the dive shop on the recommendation of a friend to possibly stay at Padang Bai Beach Resort.

My wife had not dived for years and was hesitant to try again but reluctantly agreed to do a refresher. She thoroughly enjoyed herself and actually went on the Tulamben Dive which she would not have dreamed of doing before. They built her confidence and competency. My 13 year old son needed to upgrade from SCUBA Diver to Junior Open... More

Had five nights there , just three diving days. Because I was the only diver in the resort the options were limited to local sites , which were fine.... More

Good English speaking and answered my questions well. I booked two dives for the following day. Small group with just one other guest, 2 dive masters and a camera... More

We did the PADI course. Indra gave us clear and repeated instructions. Being slow learners, we got a day extra for mastering some emergency skills. Doing the PADI was good fun and added a lot to our travel experiences. Thanks a lot guys!

Did two dives in the same day with Absolute Scuba. They were incredibly helpful in planning everything and very responsive by email. They even arranged to pick me up in Nusa Dua from the conference I was attending, which was fantastic.
