Explore the beautiful waters of Nusa Penida and Lembongan and enjoy spectacular views from your bungalow at the Lembongan Chalets. Few places in Bali enjoy such a view over the island where time seems to stand still. The locals farm seaweed and are polite but largely unconcerned with tourists. There are no pushy sunglasses sellers here!

To experience the best that a diving vacation in Bali can offer, and to avoid long and arduous daily road transfers, we recommend that you book a combination of resorts in Bali, to include the Tulamben area and Padang Bai to dive the east coast, Lembongan Island to visit Nusa Penida, and Pemuteran to dive the north west coast.
The poolside restaurant is an open air multi-tiered area meaning everyone gets to take in the splendid panoramic view - the beach where the seaweed farmers work, surfers enjoying the waves, and the mighty volcano of Bali's Mount Agung, all combine to form a view like nowhere else.
The menu is also pretty varied:
Various Indonesian appetizers and specialities
International main courses including satays, steaks and schnitzels
Seafood ranging from fish and chips to luxury seafood platters
Fruit and ice cream based desserts
Complimentary breakfast is fruit juice, coffee, tea, croissants, toast, fresh fruit and eggs - any which way.
The nearest re-compression chamber is Rumah Sakit Sanglah (Public Hospital in Denpasar) - approximately 2.5 hours evacuation time from dive site to chamber. We advise divers to have their own dive insurance policy for their vacation - see our insurance programme for a competitive quotation.
The boats have Emox (max. 1 hour usage) onboard and more oxygen back at the dive centre. 1 divemaster is provided for every 4 divers. All DMs are trained oxygen providers.
A minimum experience of 50 dives is required for those wishing to dive Bali's Blue Corner due to the strong currents.
The resort has room safes and fire extinguishers in each room. Security guards patrol 08:00-24:00 hrs. There is a police station and clinic in the local village.
"The menu is limited, but the food is good. It is a steep climb up a lot of stairs to most of the rooms. The dive operation is fairly far from the lodging, making the logistics less than ideal, but it's manageable. World Diving in Lembongan Island is a good operation. I have no complaints with them. There aren't all that many dive sites there, so if you like to do different sites, 5-6 days is plenty." - Robert E Gaensslen, USA, 8 July 2010 ...
"The dive operator was excellent. The staff were very friendly and very informative. English was very fluently spoken by all the staff. The equipment was of very high standards as was the safety. The boats were very well designed and comfortable." - TT Lim, Malaysia, 10 March 200 ...
