Just had an eight night stay in this beautiful property and loved it so much again. Everywhere was very quiet, nice for divers, but the almost total absence of Chinese divers has hit Tulamben businesses hard. The staff were are friendly and nice as ever, and the whole resort is immaculate.

I was lucky to have had the same guide as last year, Made. I learned so much from him last year about photography and did again this year. Many of the little critters are less than the size of a grain of rice. Guides like Made and his colleagues are rapidly turning Tulamben into the nudibranch capital of the world. I have been lucky enough to have dived most of not all of the macro top spots in Indonesia and the Philippines and the nudibranch spots are best in Tulamben by a mile. The macro spots are not just confined to nudis, we saw wonderful crabs and shrimps including several harlequin shrimps, Donald Duck shrimps, a bobtail squid, a long arm octopus and a hairy octopus.

The Liberty Wreck is of course a wonderful dive and we had it to ourselves for a quarter of an hour on a dawn dive, highly recommended. I first dived the wreck in 2011 and have never seen so many bumpheads as on this trip.

The resort itself is absolutely beautiful with a wonderful garden visited by kingfishers, bee eaters, a squirrel and numerous dragonflies. I loved chatting to Made, the head gardener, about his beautiful plants and lawns in the morning, chilling by the pool in the afternoon and watching the moon and stars little bats after dark.

All in all a wonderful experience at a very affordable price.

Place was beautiful. It did help that we pretty much had the area to ourselves. 3 Pools, great messages. The food was OK but we didn't go hungry. Liberty Wreck was some great diving and the guide for my wife and I was just right.

We have just spent 4 days at Liberty. As newly certified Open Water Divers we were very excited to test out our skills. The diving was quite incredible. We did not have to travel far to experience the Liberty Wreck Dive, coral Garden and Drop off as well as some diving in Kubu. Tama, our guide was really helpful and conscious of our newbie status. Diving was extremely reasonably priced.

The resort itself has an incredibly friendly staff who are very hard working. The gardens are just gorgeous. The restaurant has great simple Indo and western dishes. The prices are so affordable and the food so tasty that we ended up eating there 3 out of 4 nights.

We did our diving in the morning and spent the afternoons lazing by the pool and getting in room massages.

It was the off season during our visit but we were not troubled by rain, our Dive Master told us that visibility was not as good as it usually is but we were certainly not disappointed.

We will definitely be back.

Just returned from an enjoyable and relaxing 5-day break at the Liberty Dive Resort. My family and I stayed in the Deluxe Family Villa which was well apportioned and maintained. The resort’s villas are surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens that are meticulously maintained every day.

As a diver, I found the resort’s rental equipment to be in good condition. The divemaster-to-diver ratio was high, with 2 DMs to 3 divers, and the dives were conducted safely. I enjoyed the Liberty Wreck dives most, and the sunrise & night dives at the site produced sighting of large schooling bump-head parrotfish and Napoleon wrasse.

The staff were warm and very attentive to our needs, particularly Dwi and Adi at the front desk, and helpful in every way. We enjoyed the meals at the resort’s restaurant (other options were within a 10-15min walk if desired) and the spa, massage and day-tours as well. I would return to stay here again.

My second trip back to Liberty this year and I wish I had more. As usual the service and friendly staff make this place shine along with the great diving. This place is consistently good and that is why I return here each time. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the food is great value and plenty of it. It’s a great place for macro and wide angle as far as underwater photography goes. Can’t wait to get back here.
