Guests can enjoy a full breakfast, lunch and dinner served in the dining room at the communal dining table. We serve an assortment of dishes influenced mostly by tropical Indonesian and Asian style, but also international cuisines. Local beer and wines are available for purchase.

Each day generally starts with a family style continental breakfast setting of cereals, homemade bread or pastries, spreads, tropical fruits, coffee and tea. There is also a daily a la carte menu for cooked breakfast dishes such as eggs and hash brown potatoes or Indonesian breakfast of fried rice or fried noodles.

Lunch and dinner are served family style and include a variety of local vegetables, fish and chicken, accompanied by freshly made salads, soups and desserts.

We check in with each guest before their arrival regarding special meal requirements and are easily able to accommodate special diets such as vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and so on.

The guest lounge and sundeck area is a comfortable place to relax in between dives. At the end of the day, it is a meeting point where guests can enjoy a lite snack and local beer or bottle of wine while they discuss the day’s dives. Non-divers can spend their day enjoying a book in the lounge or lying out on the sun loungers underneath a parasol.
