I saw barracuda, starfish, swordfish and few big and small fishes. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Stanley, Abdul, Iwan, Ali are the best helper as this is my first time...

We found Stanleys homestay very comfortable. The family were warm & friendly and made great vegetarian selections! Stanley was very welcoming. He invited us to visit a school he has set up (and financed) for the children on the island who wouldn't otherwise receive any education. The sea around his place is beautiful, you can snorkel over the coral reef,...

The staffs are extremely friendly and definitely value for money for the stay. Diving equipments are in good condition. Although the food variety could be improved further otherwise its all good.

We (14 of us), had a great time being offshore and able to dive with dive masters Stanley, Azahar, and Andy. We were so amazed to see a huge variety of exotic undersea creatures like the schools of barracudas, jack fish, huge fishes, large squids, turtles and much more. At the Spheredivers Homestay, we also had the best deals plus...
