Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Sanctum Dive Center was offering a good packet of diving and sleeping and relaxing. Divesites were sadly with "not good visibility" but every time we met what we wanted; Manta, nice current etc.

The Big Mola-mola was something what I was looking for, but with no success. Ok, I understood that January is not the right season for Mola-mola. At least we saw Mola-mola's fin passing by the north divesite. The boatboys told me that you can see the difference between fins and the style of swimming. Mola-molas swimming is looking like duckwalking. Indeed that's true.

Also big hug for the Sanctum's accomodation; the hotel was beautiful, clean and gosy. Ketut was taking care of the hotel and most of all carrying me with his scooter everywhere I wanted when ever I wanted.

Thank you a lot lot lot.
Hugs and kisses.

The right place to carry out diving activities, where the service of the diving crew and instructors is very professional and supported by complete and modern facilities, on the 2nd floor ada tempat makan siang sehabis diving dan ada pasilitas untuk musik

The dives were beautiful! The crew took me to manta point and SD where I saw amazing mantas at the first site then drift dive with sea turtles on the next.

The crew was helpful and did a short briefing before each dive. They were friendly too, which made my solo trip to this island more memorable.

DO NOT GO THERE!!! DANGEROUS!

Worst organization and diving experience of my life. I went for a dive in Crystal Bay and one in Manta Point. Being an open water, therefore the max dept I can reach is 18 meters. Well, they made me go to 37 METERS in Crystal Bay and the dive master was laughing about it. I do no have my own computer therefore I did not realize we were that deep. Once on the boat, they asked me not to tell anyone about this..

Very unprofessional and dangerous.

They took us to Manta point and SD in north. Really good spots for diving. But that’s the only positive thing I could say unfortunately. First if all, when we were leaving from the shore with the boat, they have no markers made so every time it’s a gamble how many corals are going to get broken. We literally run over the coral with our boat. Then, we were 10 divers on the boat, 3 instructors. Seems ok, but, instead of dividing us into three groups we were diving as one 10 people group. Which is a big mess under water and you depend on 9 people instead if 2. If someone runs out of air we all had to go up even though I still had half a tank. Also, our dives lasted for 30minutes only. It was beautiful, but very rushed. Last, but not least, in SD point we found a turtle which was eating from the coral. Our instructor was pulling it by its shell to get out of the coral so we could see it better. That was absolutely unnecessary. Rule number 1 is not to touch anything under water and be respectful for the marine life. And this diving centre did not show their respect at all. I hope that corals there will remain, but if they keep acting like that, they will lose them very fast. All in all, they took us to good spots but I did not enjoy my dives as I was in a big group, it was super rushed and disrespectful for nature.
