We have been coming here for around 5 years, and will be back again next year. My husband is an avid diver, myself a snorkeler. We BOTH look forward to this leg of our annual trip to Indo. Accommodation super comfortable, stunning gardens, 3 pools and great little restaurant. There are a few other options within walking distance if you feel the need. Our dive guide Rick has looked after us the last 2 visits & is excellent - very knowledgeable and helpful. Always happy to help you find whatever critter is on your list. The diving is so easy. Snorkeling is good too - the wreck just a quick swim out from the beach at the end of the lane. I enjoyed finding little nudi’s amongst the rocks too. Though the rocky entry & exit can be challenging at times!
I'm not a diver, but I was here as part of a tour of Bali and it was amazing even for a non-diver like me. I was excited to have my own little villa with a porch. The staff is friendly and I was able to just have some quiet time reading and relaxing by the pool. It's a short walk to the beach (but it's a rocky beach not a sand beach). I spent quite a bit of time there just watching the sunrise and taking in the soothing waves of the ocean. This is a town for divers mostly so there is not a lot of hustle and bustle. However that's just what I was looking for after being overstimulated in Ubud with too much going on. This resort is a nice quiet place to stay and relax whether you are a diver or not.
We're just at the end of our one month stay at Liberty Dive Resort. We made 63 dives, all for small critters on the slopes of Gunung Agung. What a wonderful place! Even after being here quite often! The LDR is perfect. Nice quiet rooms / bungalows in the garden. Perfect food, very friendly staff and excellent dive guides.
The staff at Liberty run a very efficient but relaxed diving operation. Upon arrival in the afternoon we were immediately assigned our own personal dive guide, and were diving the USS Liberty within 30 minutes of putting our bags down. The sites and timings of our dives were completely up to us. All sites are just a few minutes ride away in the back of little trucks, and most are shore dives which really takes the hassle out of it. The dives had heaps of fish life and coral, and there is another newer wreck which has some great swim throughs. We only stayed 2 nights, but wish we stayed for longer, as there were lots more dive sites to explore and a nearby volcano to investigate.
Built by divers and for divers, this place was a dream. There is nothing else going on in this village other than Diving. However the resort was very comfortable and the rest of my family greatly enjoyed their time at the pool and fantastic massages. It was the favourite part of Bali for all of us. Everyone is assigned an individual dive guide. Extremely knowledgable guide and happy to do any dive any time. The facilities for divers are super convenient with place to store equipment and easy transport to all dive locations. I will highly recommend to all divers.
