Explore diving around the Arsa Santhi Hotel

Resort Description

Arsa Santhi is a peaceful and characterful hotel on Nusa Penida, south of Bali.

You'll be comfortable here, and treated like family. It's a great little spot for marine-life too. Nusa Penida is one third of The Golden Triangle Archipelago and its pure, warm waters make for perfect diving, attracting manta rays, sunfish and sea turtles. The 5* PADI center is only a short walk away, or you can hire bikes from the reception which is open 24 hours. 

When you're not out diving or exploring on two wheels, the swimming pool and padded sun loungers are yours to make use of and you can grab a burger at the on-site grill restaurant, famous for its big BBQs. The rooms all have air conditioning, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels and a private ensuite with a bath and complimentary toiletries.

Best dive sites in Bali

USAT Liberty – Bali’s most famous dive site and a chance to see a resident school of bumphead parrotfish, black sand muck diving combined with a coral encrusted wreck. The USAT (United States Army Transport) Liberty was awaiting repairs on the shore when lava flow from an erupting Mount Agung pushed her back into the water where she now lays on her side. Starting at just over 5 meters and extending down to 30 meters this wreck is a marine life hotspot. Look out for barracuda, turtles, pygmy seahorses on fans, numerous species of nudibranch, sting rays and a wealth of critters. Gili Tepekong – These magnificent rock pinnacles are encrusted with a vibrant mix of hard and soft corals and offer stunning underwater topographies ranging from walls and slopes to canyons and swim throughs. Biomass here is exceptional with hoards of fish occupying the reef. It is a great site for spotting reef sharks, seasonal Mola Mola and when looking out to the blue - anything is possible! Due to mild-strong currents, Gili Tepekong is an advanced dive site and is recommended for experienced divers. Gili Selang – Starting out on the black sand slope you’ll be impressed by the variety of nudibranch and other macro critters as you head down to the top of the reef. The reef and wall offer gorgonian fans, rope sponges, branching corals, occasional bommies, colourful soft corals and barrel sponges in the deeper areas. Look out for moray eels, trevally, cuttlefish and pygmy seahorses camouflaged in the fans with schooling fusiliers and passing pelagics in the blue. Due to mild-strong currents, Gili Selang is an advanced dive site and is recommended for experienced divers. Eel Garden – This is a beautiful dive site which takes its name from a sandy ridge, populated by literally hundreds of garden eels which sway to and fro in the plankton rich currents. That’s not all though, this is a diverse dive site where you can spot passing pelagics and a wealth of critters on the reefs and sandy slopes. Underwater Temple – Also known as “Temple garden” or “Taman Pura” this site is an artificial reef designed to look like a traditional Balinese temple. There are sunken stone statues of Buddha and Ganesha behind ornate Balinese gateways. If there was ever a site that reflected Balinese spiritualism underwater, this is it! Bali is home to innumerable dive sites which offer diverse topographies and marine life. Other notable sites in Bali include: Coral Gardens, Napoleon Reef, Secret Bay, Jemeluk Bay and Blue Lagoon.

What to see

Bali is one of the most diverse underwater environments the ocean has to offer. Famous for sightings of mola molas, manta rays and sharks it would be easy to overlook the other riches available. Tuna and barracuda stalk the reef. Vibrancy comes from in the from the 2500 varieties of reef fish that make Balis reefs their home. Octopus, cuttlefish and scorpion fish hide in plain sight. Divers will often encounter turtles here. Play close attention for the macro and muck diving delights. Discover pygmy seahorses, mimic octopus, frogfish and an array of nudibranch. No matter how long you have been diving, unless you have been to Bali before, you are virtually guaranteed to see so many fish and critters that you have never seen before.
