Tulamben, Bali

Dive Resort & Accommodation

Welcome to Villa Alba

Located on the Northeast coast of Bali in the small village of Rubaya, Alba Dive Tulamben is the perfect place to relax, scuba dive, or just enjoy the countryside around the foothills of Mount Agung and Mount Batur. We call our main dive resort secret garden, and here you will find everything you need to make the most out of your time in Bali.

All our rooms are en-suite, and our restaurant serves a choice of western, Chinese, and Balinese food, cooked with fresh local ingredients. Within the main resort you will find two swimming pools, a bar, a gym, and a health spa, providing a range of massages and other beauty treatments. We also have additional accommodation in Tulamben, which includes a restaurant and a coffee shop, and a villa in Sanur so that you can break up the journey to or from our main resort and explore Sanur and Denpasar.

Our diving facilities are considered the best in Indonesia. We provide fun diving at stunning nearby dive sites such as the USAT Liberty wreck either by shore entry or via chartered speedboat, and offer day trips to popular dive spots such as Nusa Penida, which is where you will see manta rays. We can also arrange for you to dive from our Sanur accommodation.

In addition to fun diving, we also offer try dives, high-quality dive training, and open circuit and CCR technical diver training and fun diving, from beginner to advanced.

We are a PADI gold resort, offering great recreational diving course and technical course for PADI student.
