Bali has long been a popular destination for our divers, especially those on the hunt for critters muck diving. We are thrilled now to offer alongside this a taster of the incredible reef diving Indonesia has to offer. Hai Tide Beach Resort Bali is situated on Mushroom beach, Nusa Lembongan - it's the ideal home away from home a for divers! This 4 star beach front resort within 15 minutes to most of the world class dive sites in the area. Now you can mix up the small stuff with some of Bali's bigger reef residents!The Hai Tide Beach resort has 18 traditional villas called lumbungs. These are either garden view or beachfront. All have air-conditioned bedroom, private en suite (shower, basin, toilet), room service (11am to 9.30pm), complimentary bottled water, mosquito net over bed, king bed or 2 twin beds, fridge, in-room safe, daily housekeeping & turndown service and blackout drapes. If you are a larger group or family, then the lumbungs can be adapted with an extra bed. Or why not upgrade to one of the 3 two bedroom villas. The resort also offers free wifi. At the end of a sun soaked day, head to the Bali Hai bar and grill for fresh cooked meals on the sea front - there is even a wood fired pizza oven! There is plenty for non divers and families too. From banana boat rides to kayaking, mountain bikes and the mangrove tour - you can have an action packed holiday. Or if you prefer the slower pace of life, why not book yourself a massage and while away a relaxing hour.

Indonesia is around 15-20 hours flight from the UK and is made up of around 18 000 islands. It is the largest archipelago in the world straddling the Equator, between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Most travellers will enter Indonesia through Jakarta (CGK), Bali (DPS) or Manado (MDC) airports.
This is the stuff of divers' dreams. This exotic nation is the very definition of bio diversity. Find the big fish in Komodo, Raja Ampat or Kalimantan. Drift lazily along the walls of Bunaken and Wakatobi, watching turtles on coral drenched walls. While away the hours hunting for miniscule macro in Bali, Lembeh or Ambon. Cannot decide? Why not combine two locations into a single trip!
For British nationals, The Foreign & Commonwealth Development Office currently advises against all but essential international travel to Indonesia at the moment.
Indonesia is a vast country, and the weather can be hugley variable. The topography means that weather patterns can be very localised. This is the tropics! For Bali, Komodo & Wakatobi the weather is usually best from April - November, with July and August being some of the best months to visit. Between December and March the conditions can be a bit stormy. November to April is also the wettest month to visit Bunaken, Lembeh and Kalimantan but to a lesser degree than in other locations. October to April is historically the most popular time to dive in Raja Ampat.
