Comments This resort & diving is in Eastern Bali, the Candidassa area.
An excellent quality resort with fine dining and accomodations. Food
presentation and preparation was the finest we experienced in Bali
even though this was only a 12-unit guest facility. The guest facilities were nicely appointed, very clean and comfortable. The friendliness & service of the staff was superior.

The problem existed calling this a "diving" resort. It simply was not true.
Guests had to be shuttled by van to a sandy beach location sometimes
as much as one hour by a van. And then a small Balinese style skiff motored you to the various dive sites. You had to geared up in the water. This unknown issue made it impossible for me to dive since I am a handicapped diver. Peter Hughes travel agency booked this resort for us but did not explain the diving logistic to us. However, they did know I was a handicapped diver. We paid ahead for both our resort stay and diving. Yet, Peter Hughes Travel Agency refused to refund my money or offer me credit for all the days of diving that I could not use.

This turned out to be a big negative on our trip. Even though we liked the resort, we came to dive. We cannot blame the resort but we hold Peter Hughes Travel Agency and its agent responsible for their gross negligence.
