Very nice resort with swimming pools at 29+degC all year round and confortable rooms with all European standards. The diving facility is a true technical dive facility and is even rebreather friendly with all kinds of bailouts, 2 or 3 liters tanks. Great

I have stayed at Villa Alba several times and I can only praise what a fantastic Resort Alex and Jessica have created. The accommodation is superb with ranging from 4* luxury to premier economy at very reasonable prices. The food is superb with probably the largest menu choice in Bali. One of my favourites is the Chinese Chicken and cashew...

We absolutely loved this place. It was an oasis in paradise. Whether you are relaxing and doing nothing (like us) or want to dive, fish, snorkel or take a tour this is the place for you. The rooms are gorgeous and the air con works a treat. Two pools to choose from and both are immaculately maintained. The restaurant is...

Highly recommend doing scuba diving in the Tulamben area through these guys. Very professional & good equipment/team. The Resort itself is beautiful, great location and views with fast WIFI. Massages, food & diving made for a great experience

A perfect place to stay for people staying around Tulamben! A beach front property with nice rooms, beautiful garden and pools on beach side. Cool sea view restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner! The location is not so far from the Liberty ship wreck.

My son (15) and I chose Villa Alba for our first-ever diving trip, and this proved to be a great decision that has sparked a passion for the sport in both of us. Alex Ford, his wife Jessica and the entire Team will treat you like royalty from the moment you set foot on Villa Alba. Alex will take you...

Awesome resort, Alex and Jessica are very accommodating and flexible. Anything you need, you can get. Stayed there with my parents, wife and two kids ( 2 and 4 years old). Pools are great but too deep for children below 8 as they are more made for dive training. Food is very good and going into town to look for...

Villa Alba came recommended from the Sydney dive community, so our family of 3 booked in for a week in mid November. We were very excited when we got picked up from Denpasar Airport and had a lovely 2 1/2 hour drive up to Tulamben. Our driver was great, and changing money along the way was not a problem. We...

Great trip! We were collected at Denpasar by a lovely guy in a comfie, air conditioned car for the 2.5hr drive to Tulamben so all very easy & stress free. Then Alex (owner) took us around to show us where everything was so we knew what was what for our stay – Villa Alba will rival anywhere for its dive...

Overall not very good. We called direct to the hotel to book a room - we originally asked about an annex room, but were told that because it was low season we could have a standard room for the same price as an annex room. When we arrived, we were told that the standard room was the same as the...

Right then where to start. I do apologise for that initial lack of attention to you having to wait so long and in response to this the television has been removed from the kitchen area and the staff reminded of their duties. That is a definite fault in our part. On the lack of diving it should have been explained...
