The natural serenity of being set amongst, mountains, rice fields, and ocean is enhanced by the Spa, that offers the ultimate peace and tranquility. Whether you want shopping, activity, or just relaxing and daydreaming, we have it all.


  • Padang Bai / Candidasa
    Padang Bai is a small, scenic and busy fishing village and port. The reefs in the area all have white bottoms and the diving can be absolutely stunning.
  • Tepekong  &  Mimpang
    A short boat ride from Padang Bai and an even shorter hop from Candidasa, Tepekong is a volcanic hump rising of the water.
    Underwater this area is covered with medusa-like coral heads absolutely adorned with blood-red sea fans, tunicates and various sponges. The competition for space is unbelievable
    A drift dive, Tepekong can have strong currents but you are often rewarded with the sight of big pelagic and sometimes, sunfish. Grey reef sharks are also common in these two areas.
  • The Blue Lagoon is only a 5-minute boat ride from Padang Bai harbor and both north and south sections are excellent dive sites. The southern part of the reef drops vertically to 20m and continues in a sandy area. The underwater landscape is dominated by up to 4m high soft coral and ledges hiding large spiny lobsters.
    On the northern side, the dive starts in only 3 to 5m deep water and you can either explore an interesting slope dropping to 30m with plenty of ‘fan’ worms and feather stars or it is possible to dive the sandy area while drifting between beautiful soft coral piles.
