The diving here at tulamben, Bali is perfect for a beginner as the water calm and excellent visibility. Exploring the ship wreck on my third and forth dive was such... More

They were quick to respond to my initial inquiry and all arrangements were made within a day The instructor, Made was great, he made someone who had never dived before comfortable and kept the pace tailor made...

Here comes Made Sumata, my dive master for second and third diving session. IT IS TOTALLY A NIGHTMARE IN MY DIVING EXPERIENCE! Let me tell my unpleasant experience with him. - Firstly, he has a very bad attitude during the both sessions. - He talk in a very rude way. - He is sarcastic tho. For instant, he want me... More

This month I did my advanced open water diving course in Tulamben, Bali. I used TripAdvisor to find out which school / instructor was the most popular (as there are many dive shops there!) and I noted that Made Sutama came highly recommended. Therefore I made contact with him through his own website. Made was punctual in his response to... More

Last year (September 2016) i went to Tulamben to get my PADI open water course and Made was my dive instructor. I told him that i was a bit afraid about diving (because i never dived before). He gave me some instructions and knowledges about diving skills, also about how to manage my fear and it made me not too... More

A friend and I came to this resort based on a recommendation and it was the best decision we made! The hotel over all was great, the staff was pleasant, polite and always accommodating and the prices were reasonable. The true reason we chose this resort though was for the dive school and this is where they excelled. I was... More

My boys, 10 and 12 years old, did the JOW with Made Sumata at Matahari Dive Centre - although I think Made is a free agent and moves around dive centres instructing. I can't speak highly enough of him. My boys loved him and he was a friendly, relaxed teacher. Because one kid was under 12 I had to accompany... More
