Latuhalat Maluku Divers Resort


For serious divers there is not much choice in Ambon. The critter dive sites in Ambon Bay are only visited by two resorts. Maluku Divers have been in Ambon for a long time and since they have moved from their former resort on the south coast to the critter dive sites they have really started to go upmarket. The new resort is only 10 minutes away from the airport and offers accommodation in 10 spacious bungalows for a maximum of 20 guests who can share three speed boats. All critter-sites in the bay can be reached in 5 to 15 minutes. The diving area is spacious with big tanks to water cameras and dive gear. There is also a well lit and air conditioned camera room with plenty of plugs to charge strobes and lights. In each of the bungalows there is also a table reserved for cameras but is is not sufficiently lighted. NITROX will be available from October 2010 onwards. The dive guides (imported from Lembeh) know the dive sites and fishes very well. They have excellent eyes and you literally can order the animals you want to see. Of course there is no guaranty. The Balinese Chef and his team offer a tasty mix Western and Indonesian dishes. There is a choice of different breakfasts and three course meals for lunch and dinner. At the time of writing this report (April 2010) there was still work in progress at the resort. The garden area outside the bungalows was not ready yet. The plants still need some time to grow bigger. The air conditioned, spacious bungalows are a bit dark inside and the gray concrete floor needs to be tiled to look less depressing. The beds are huge and comfortable.
