Resort Description

Blue Bay Divers Resort is an authentic Indonesian getaway on the stunning island of Sahaung, next to Bangka Island in the Gangga Bangka Archipelago.

With space for up to 16 guests, this resort is perfect for those looking to get their own slice of tropical island life. Lounge in a hammock on the beach or get some shade under a palm-thatched shelter. For adventurous travelers, why not arrange a trip to the Highlands of Minhasa where you can marvel at the regions impressive and dominating volcanoes.

The bungalows are built in traditional Sulawesi style and come with wooden terraces looking out over the beach and bay. In the open and airy restaurant, guests are spoiled with Indonesian cuisine. The beach bar APA KA BAR and the sandy beach are ideal for relaxing and enjoy the Happy Hour is from 6 pm to 7 pm. The resort often organizes seafood BBQs on the beach, bonfires with guitar music and various ball games on the beach. 

This family-owned resort takes steps to reduce its environmental impact in every way it can, including becoming a member of the No-Trash Triangle Initiative. It means that the authentic bungalows come without A/C and the bathrooms have an Indonesian mandi (scoop) instead of running water.  After each third dive, or when it rains, the resort will serve your bathroom with hot water.
