We sign up for the USAT Liberty Shipwreck Dive from Ubud Sunrise Tourist Service We stayed in ubud and the journey to Tulamben (east of bali) was about 2.5hrs. We took the Introductory course cause both of us do not have the diving open water certificate. Therefore this was a good exposure and experience if we are really keen on... More

I've been many times in Matahari Dive Resort, and every year is going better. I'm diver, underwater camera, 33 years diving, in Matahari they do the best to offer me awesome dives and great video shots. Harlequim Shrimps, Pigmy sea horse, Humphead parrot fishes in the Liberty. Great hotel, very comfortable, best value of money. Staff are always friendly.

We stayed for two noght and were very happy to leave afterwards. The staff at the reception is friendly - the rest is not. We saw them spitting around the premises and felt unwelcomed in the restaurant. By the way: don't try the pizza - but the chicken burger and nasi goreng are ok. The room is very simple and... More

I am very sad to read this comment because normally my staff is really friendly. And I love if the guests talk with me direct when they feel not comfortable. Holidays are the most important time in the year and I can not understand if people destroy this time by themself with unhappiness.... For the room, sorry. If you book... More

This place never fails to meet up to expectations. Able to maintain it's excellent service from the reception area to the small but cozy restaurant. Diving staff are very professional and friendly. 5 star diving. And Suci is forever the gracious host. Would definitely be back and highly recommended for someone looking for a simple, comfortable and affordable resort.

We stayed at Matahari for 2 nights specifically to dive the USS Wreck. The room was basic, but clean. The mattress was uncomfortable though. We stayed across the street at the guest house which is cheaper, but you still have access to the pool and hotel amenities. The pool was sure nice to use on warm afternoons. It met our... More

Nice, clean room with AC and modern bathroom. It's all you will need of your room really, because the rest of the day should be spend out in the ocean, looking at the beautiful coral and fish!

We stayed here two nigts for under 20 euro per night. The room is good, well functioning airco and a nice bathroom. Breakfast is served at the waterside with a beautiful view. Snorkeling is very nice at this place. Equipment can be rented at the hotel and you can just walk into the sea and discover the underwaterworld.

We stayed here for a week in October with our two boys aged 12 and 16. The little one didn't know if he would like to dive so we signed him up for a trial session with one of the dive guides who took him in the pool and then to the open water at the beach which is literally... More

I travel twice a year to Bali, and when I do, I try to get in a week or so of scuba diving. Bali has several areas with good diving, but none has the variety and ease of Tulamben. Where else can you walk into the ocean from the beach, swim 2 minutes, and see the wreck of a World... More
