5 day diving packages with four friends. Very friendly diving instructors and a short distance to USAT Liberty. Great food selection at the restaurant on site and a relax spa after diving. We enjoyed the entire stay at Matahari Tulamben Dive Center! Thank you! Job well done!

Didi was a great diving instructor. Using his flawless english, Didi could clearly and efficiently pass on his diving knowledge. He was detailed and focused even when there was only one or two students in the class. We enjoyed the SSI course and stay at Matahari.

Matahari offers 3 shore dive sites they repeat every day. These are great sites but don't need to be repeated more than 2x in my opinion. The USS liberty wreck is interesting but currents can be a little strong. If you want to pay a little more you can travel by boat or car to a few other sites that... More

Placement, team and facilities are conditions to select a place to dive. Hotel Spa in the same place helps you to choose Matahari as your diving holidays resort in Bali. USAT Liberty very near of Matahari Tulamben Dive Center is a good thing too. Nice Spots very near of Dive Center and facilities to go and return.

The driver arrived in time in Sanur and we went to Tulamben. We got a great introductory for the diving and it seems already like we got a small private dive course. Then in... More

The Liberty is a brilliant dive. Could not be much easier and the coral and fish life is outstanding. Our dive leader was Wayan - great chap. We shared the dive with two rather obnoxious folk but we just didn't have to deal with them. Fully kitted up with 5 mm wetsuits in water 29c.... Very well organised. If I... More
