Diving Holidays in Indonesia
The world's largest archipelago with over 17,000 islands, Indonesia lies across the equator stretching from the Asian mainland in the west into the Pacific Ocean in the east. Unity in Diversity is the country's motto, accounting for the myriad of ethnic, linguistic and religious groups found amongst the people of this vast and populous nation. The spectacular underwater world includes some of the best diving in the world and is well known for its marine biodiversity. This rich volcanic area combines miles of coastline, warm equatorial currents, nutrient-rich up-swellings and a tropical climate that come together to create a biological wonderland. The superb reefs and magnificent aquatic life attract the international diving community to the crystal seas.

Yes! We saw the pygmy seahorse! Now in Ubud, the hotel is an Indiana Jones temple scene - so unique. Must recommend the Bali cooking school. It was a superb setting by the rice paddies and included a tour of the food market and making flower offerings to Hindu temple on top of an extensive cookery class - it was such wonderful experience.

Thank you for arranging our honeymoon in Bali and Lombok. We had a fantastic time, and I am pleased to say Ashley loved diving so hopefully we will booking more diving holidays soon! Gili Trawangan was great - the diving was brilliant with so many turtles and gorgeous reefs! Thanks for all your help.
