Conceived to offer diners the next level of sophistication in modern dining brings innovative ideas together with a curated menu that introduces the flavors of Asia interwoven with distinct hill tribe influences.

The Dream Wall dive site on Menjangan Island’s northern coast is a vertical wall that weaves in and out with lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Fusiliers dart up and down the wall while smaller reef fish are to be found within the coral heads. Very large fans adorn the wall from around 10m and deeper, along with lots of brightly coloured soft corals and feather stars.

Each year, between August and November, the Ocean Sunfish or Mola Mola come to the clean, clear waters off the East Coast of Bali near the island of Nusa Penida to be cleaned and groomed. These are volcanic islands, and the sea bed is often hundreds of metres below. The cleaner stations are in Crystal Bay and Manta Point, which are both subject to tidal fluctuations and unpredictable current changes, with vertical walls where the swirling currents can drag a diver down before he can react. To dive there at all you should always take an experienced guide, which is why we've chose AquaMarine, the same outfit that will certify us.
Nusa Penida, Klungkung Regency, Bali, Indonesia
We'll be spending a lot of our time near Bali's beaches and dive sites, and much of the time we'd like to just snorkel in the shallow tropical waters.
