Comments We only did one dive from Mimpi and that was the last dive of an extended trip that included a liveaboard stay. This last dive was to the patch reef just offshore of Mimpi Resort. The dive was a good one, the guide was helpful and knowledgeable. The dive crew back at the shop were extremely helpful and did a good job rinsing my BC and other equipment when I mentioned that was my last dive of this trip.

The resort is a good one. The accommodations are excellent. The food was just okay (we ate dinner out at an excellent resturaunt down the street that included a Balinese dance performance one evening!). The service is okay, but the interactions with staff were not the pleasant ones I came to expect from Balinese everywhere.

Mimpi has a beautiful pool just above the cobble beach and ample chaise lounges. Take advantage of the massages offered by local women--a massage on your chaise overlooking the sea is a wonderful thing and the cost is only $7 USD!
