Reef Seen Diver’s Resort Bali
Reef Seen Diver’s Resort in Bali is the home of Turtle Hatchery, Reef Seen Dancers & the Reef Gardeners of Pemuteran. Beside world-class diving and incredible snorkeling, Reef Seen offers calm beaches, loads of sunshine, fascinating culture, pony rides for the children, all to be found in the village of Pemuteran, North-West Bali.
The resort can be reached by a 3-4 hour trip from the Denpasar International Airport and Kuta region. It is one of the most beautiful drives on Bali, taking you up into the mountains via Bedugul, passing the 3 lakes around Bedugal (Bratan, Buyan and Tamblingen) and then passing the famous Bratan Temple.
Located in the bay of Pemuteran, situated only 50 meters from the beach, you will find yourself at one of the best dive locations in Bali. This dive resort offers its own comfortable and affordable accommodation. As the resort has just 8 rooms, Reef Seen’s policy of low numbers, good service and relaxed atmosphere can be maintained.
Reef Seen has 5 connected sea-facing rooms all with air-conditioning and typical North Bali open air, natural stone bathrooms with hot water showers and a large veranda overlooking the garden. The remaining 3 connected rooms were completed a few years later, offering slightly smaller accommodations with indoor en-suite bathrooms without heated water; for cooling you can choose between air-conditioning or simple ceiling fan. These aptly named Garden Rooms face the manicured gardens but you can still see the ocean from the veranda.
The resort owners primary objective is to provide clean, comfortable, on-site accommodation for divers and guests who wish to dive this beautiful area of Bali. They also welcome snorkelers or visitors who show interest in their projects and are looking for a laid back place straight on the beach.
The resort has a small restaurant where breakfast is served outside on the terrace every morning. During the day it serves sandwiches and snacks, while continuing into the evening the bar offers beer, soft drinks and fresh seasonal fruit juices. Open every day and evening the restaurant offers satellite TV and free Wi-Fi extends throughout the resort.
The longest trip to a dive site (Menjangan Island) is a 1 hour comfortable cruise along the north west coast by their 17 meter custom dive vessel, the Reef Spirit. The rest of the dive sites start from the shore or are within a 5 – 10 minute boat ride. Bali is on the edge of the greatest bio-diversity areas on earth. Diving this area, you will experience an incredible variety of marine life at their dive sites, from occasional whale sharks, eagle rays and schooling fish to beautiful nudibranchs and hard and soft corals decorate the walls and reef-tops.
As a 5* PADI Green Star Center, Reef Seen also specializes in helping you to enjoy your first venture into the world of diving, including introductory dives and PADI Open Water courses. If you’re already certified you will truly enjoy the diving in this area as well as the resort’s attention to detail to make your dive vacation a truly memorable one.
Reef Seen has different boats for different purposes. The traditional wooden outrigger, Reef Runner is ideal to go to the local dive spots. The larger Reef Spirit is generally the boat for the Menjangan Island diving trips. On the Reef Spirit you can sit up on the deck take in the breathtaking views of Bali or if the open air is not for you then there is a cabin for shade and cushioned seating. Reef Nymph, a single engine speed boat is capable for local and Menjangan dive/snorkeling trips as well.
