Kalimaya PADI 5* Dive Resort offers to you the newest and most exciting Indonesia diving holiday opportunity. Almost every little place on earth seems to be established, discovered and explored – this speaks for above and below the water level…
We have been fortunate enough to find one of those last untouched places, in the heart of Indonesia. Kalimaya is located right on the doorstep to one of the most exciting new dive destinations on our planet – East Sumbawa, West of Komodo.
“My husband and I chose Indonesia this year for our annual dive trip, and couldn’t be happier with our decision to stay at Kalimaya. Between the unbelievable diving, incredible food (seriously, the chef should teach cooking classes and bottle that sambal!), and family-like atmosphere, my husband and I regretted not staying longer. Diving in Bali after seemed like such a letdown. Additionally, Justin’s beautiful photography from the Sangeang Volcano will allow us to share our memories with our family. Thank you to Stu, Tiegen, and the rest of the team for a truly unique and wonderful experience.”
