Ideally located right in the heart of Tulamben village is Bali's Tulamben Wreck Divers Resort. It is a very well run, comfortable option for those who do not need all the frills of a high end place to stay. This value-for-money feature is recognised in them winning the Dive The World 2011 Dive Resort of the Year. The rooms are clustered around a swimming pool, and a stroll through the reception area, past the complimentary internet terminals will bring you to the road that runs through the village.
The scuba diving is conducted in small groups and each room or group is assigned its own dive guide so the service is very friendly and personal. The famous Liberty Wreck is only a short stroll across the road to shore so it would be difficult to be closer to the best dive sites in the Tulamben area.
The resort facilities also include a laundry service, email and internet access as well as a continental breakfast. For lunchtime and evening meals you can choose from the many restaurants located nearby along the main (only!) road.
Tulamben Wreck Divers Resort is clean comfortable and is great value for money considering the alternatives in the same price bracket. A great feature of this vacation option is that you only need to pay a 20% deposit to secure your reservation, and you can pay your balance on arrival! It is also a very friendly resort as you might expect from its jovial Australian ownership. For singles or those on a budget, it is our recommendation for diving in Tulamben - Bali.

"We did our PADI open water dive with the operator and it includes all training, the equipment that was provided to us were of good condition and often checked each time before we embark on our scuba journey. The staff were all friendly and helpful and they were joyous to chat with.The instructor that was with us throughout, Erik Sanjaya was extremely patient, pro-active and excellent. Always provided tips on how to make our diving trip more memorable and were very accommodating." - Shazlina Sahlan, Singapore, 18 December 2014 ...
"Very good equipment, excellent and professional staff (Erik), very good facilities, excellent location - close to the beach." - Nadya Valcheva, Bulgaria, 21 July 2014 ...
"Staff at Tulamben Wreck Divers were very attentive and informative. The dive guides, especially Jaya, were very good and made sure you got good value for money on each dive. The guides are on commission and do an almost constant charming, but hard sell. If you have your own equipment, I'd recommend taking it as not all of the rental equipment was in good working condition (eg depth gauges and compasses were faulty and/or broken), rental wetsuits and boots weren't always available in your size etc." - Clare Phillips, Australia, 6 May 2011 ...
"The place was much better than I expected, equipment is in good order and staff is very friendly and helpful. Everyting was organized in a very professional way." - Natalja Sirokova, Latvia, 23 March 2011 ...
"Staff were extremely friendly, very welcoming and helpful; facilities were clean, organized, and all that we needed; instructor was very patient and professional; the equipment provided was fine overall, apart from the wetsuits, masks, and boots which were very worn out." - Jorge Cordova, Singapore, 21 November 2010 ...
