My boyfriend and I had the best time completing our PADI Open Water with Adrian, Amanda and the whole team at Reef Seen. The resort is lovely, perched right on the shore in Pemuteran, and Adrian's tuition was second to none. We had three fantastic days of diving completing the open water course - the reefs and project work in... More

Dear Constance Thank you for your kind and enthusiastic words about Reef Seen. You were model students which made it all the more pleasure to teach you and Henry to dive. All the staff here look forward to when you can come back. Keep on blowing bubbles! More

This centre is quite small, but friendly and professional. Clearly deserving their 5 padi stars. They do regular trips to many dive sites around Menjangen island. The equipment is slightly older, but well maintained, and the staff friendly and helpful. They have a handful of rooms for people staying multiple days, which would have been a hood alternative than an... More

We had a couple of nice diving trips with them. Amanda is awesome. Looks like she know everything. And Botok is a very relaxed and calm guide. The equipment is good too. And a love what they are doing for the turtles and the reefs. If you go there you will support a good thing!

We stayed elsewhere for the accommodation but did all our 10 dives with them. Our guide Tony was with us for all of them and was great! He was very friendly and helpful, we had a fantastic experience with him. Amanda organised everything perfectly, working with so much enthusiasm. But describing Reef Seen only as a great dive resort would... More

We booked in for a last minute couple of days diving. Firstly the positives are that Amanda was extremely helpful and we got everything booked up quickly. As other people have said, there is a bit of bleaching on the coral at the moment, but that's due to all of us as a species needing to take better care of... More

Dear gh0stly Thank you for your comments. Reef Seen started back in 1991 as a dive centre only, and it is still our primary business. The few rooms we have in the grounds of our beach front property were added from 2006. The accommodation walls are solid, but constructed in Bali style with air space at the roof, through which...

We came to Reef Seen Diver's Resort for the Turtle Hatchery Project and came back almost every day to feed the little turtles and the two grown up ones. Our little son loved to throw in the fish and watched as the turtles ate "his" food. We would have loved to adopt a turtle and let them free but while... More

I was in Pemuteran for a week on an impromptu visit. At the last minute, the day I arrived, I emailed a couple dive centers to see if it was possible to get my PADI scuba certification. Reef Seen was the first center to email me back, and from the get go the experience was wonderful. I'll just reel off... More

Our family of four - 3 divers and one pony mad girl enjoyed the service at Reef Seen. We stayed elsewhere as they didn't have family accommodation but it was a very short walk along the beach from our hotel. Our main guide,Tony, was very attentive and helpful.

What a place, what nice people. I can't sum up all the wonderful sides this place has as there are so many. Let's try anyway : First of all the fantastic people and diving instructors like Amanda Spencer, the extraordinary turtle project and the reef rehabilitation project and then the simplicity and "feels like you're home" feeling you get when...
