Introducing Alam Batu Beach Bungalow Resort

0

A beautiful and comfortable dive resort in North East Bali. Alam Batu is also an outstanding place for macro photographers.

Most people know Bali for its culture &  party tourism and as a airport hub for many exotic dive destinations in Eastern Indonesia. Very few people know that Bali has fantastic diving to offer in the North East of Bali, especially for critter lovers.

The muck diving can absolutely be compared to the Lembeh Strait in North Sulawesi, and most critters can also be found in North East Bali.

The underwater world in Bali offers a great variety of species. Located in the southwestern part of the coral triangle, the richness of the coral reefs is unique. More than 3.500 species have been discovered here. The Indonesian current is in charge of transporting plankton to the reefs around Bali. This very important current transports the water from the Pacific Ocean, via Java and Banda Sea, to the Indian Ocean. This optimal geographic situation guarantees the great diversity of fish, coral, and critters; including nudibranchs, rhinopias, ghost pipe fish, cowries, boxer crabs, mimic octopus, wonderpus and many more.

The resort fits perfectly into the landscape, some of the bungalows are near the seashore and others are located in a higher area. The garden invites you to enjoy nature, read a book or be swept away in one of the numerous ”bale” (small pavilions with comfortable reclining areas). You can also enjoy a swim in the overflow pool with a beautiful view of the sea.

The RESORT  consists of 11 generous bungalows, 1 single bungalow, three villas, a restaurant, a spa and a great dive base with extra camera room.

The spacious Dive Center offers everything you need. Enough space for your equipment, a class room, a camera room, air and nitrox (Nitrox EAN 32). Dive equipment can also be rented.

The Alam Batu dive guides are great at spotting the unique micro critters such as pygmy sea horses and other small species. Up to 6 boat dives are offered daily.

Dive sites

The Alam Batu house reef, situated directly off the resort, is a wonderful and mostly untouched reef of over 800 meters. The coral diversity varies from soft corals, black corals, table corals and gorgonians up to 2 meters in diameter. The corals shelter a fantastic underwater world with many schools of fish (including juvenile barracudas, snappers), reef sharks, sea horses, harlequin shrimps and other critters.

Aside from the beautiful house reef, there are numerous nearby dive sites that offer a variety of diving options including coral diving, muck diving and wreck diving. By Boat it only takes 15 minutes to get to the “Liberty” wreck or to the famous dive spots “Drop off”, “Ulami” and “Coral Garden” in Tulamben.

Night dives and fluo-diving are also offered. Equipped with a blue light and a special filter for your mask, the fluorescent animals glow in different colors; providing a glowing underwater experience that you will love.
