Ceningan Divers is a multi-award winning boutique eco resort that is committed to preserving the island’s natural beauty and offers some of Bali’s best diving.
The resort takes protecting the planet seriously and you can see their passion for eco tourism at every turn, from the metal straws and reusable containers in the restaurant, to its Green Fins approach to sustainable scuba diving. They run a weekly beach clean up program and are even opening a mangrove nursery on site to offset carbon output.
Turn left just after the yellow bridge, and enter a serene garden, interspersed with leafy vines, tropical shrubs and vibrant pink flowers. The resort has eight traditional, thatched-roof bungalows, each with comfy beds, air conditioning, hot running water and a balcony.
In the grounds of the resort you'll find the pool, the Mangrove Restaurant, Phoenix Bar, Ceningan Lounge (where you can enjoy some shisha and play board games) and the resort’s private jetty. There's also much on offer outside the resort, including cycling, massages, zip lining, sea weed farms and the Gala-Gala Underground House.
The diving around Ceningan Divers is renowned for the majestic manta rays that frequently visit for a feed or clean and the annual mola-mola (oceanic sunfish) season, which runs from July until October. The reefs around the island are teaming with colour and shimmering tropical fish, with average visibility at 20-35m.
