Dear guests and friends,

we hope you are well, although the times are very hard due to COVID19. Many people have lost friends and relatives. And many have lost their jobs and as a result their livelihood. Especially in countries without social security. Nevertheless, many of you have thought of us and made it possible for us to make some donation campaigns with food donations. We would like to thank you very much for this.

At the moment the situation is such that you can enter Bali with a valid health certificate but most of the airlines cancel flights. Therefore it is very hard for you to come to Bali. We are very sorry for that.

But for information: We have opened our company and diving is allowed again. Means we are ready to welcome guests.

We hope and pray that scientists will soon find a vaccine or antidote to the virus and that we can slowly return to normal.

For questions or bookings please contact us via email or WhatsApp or Facebook.
We look forward to hearing from you..............

Until then, all the best
Suci, family and team

We love to explore new Dive Sides and we found out that there are several great dive spots in BONDALEM - TEJAKULA area. Bondalem Village is around 1 hour away from Tulamben. The Government protect this area and the ocean with coral conservation, reef check and several underwater artefacts.
The dive spots are great for macro or wide angel photographers. If you are lucky you can see for example Hairy Octopus, Stillinger, Frogfish, Doto sp., Janolus, Theracera, Ghost Pipefish, Sea Horses and Nembrota. To see the website from our Dive Center please follow the link:

Matahari Dive Tulamben in BONDALEM

We offer this diving daily on request from Tulamben and between the dives you will have lunch in a beach front Restaurant. There you can see how the people traditionally produce salt in two different ways. And you can try the difference when you taste the salt.
On the way back we can visit LES Waterfalls on request.
We hope you will enjoy to dive with us in the new place :-)

Warm greetings from Suci and the TEAM
