Resort Description

Kalimaya Dive Resort is right on the doorstep of one of the most exciting new dive destinations on our planet.

Designed and built by divers for divers, nestled away in a private bay, this unique resort offers the luxury of a boutique diving resort, and every bungalow has a direct ocean view. The restaurant and lounge are in a beautiful open space, where you can enjoy a drink by the pool, relax after a diving day and dine with other divers around the giant tables.

You'll be conveniently located only a boat ride away from some of the most pristine dive sites in the region, including West Komodo Island, Gili Banta, and Sangean Volcano and Kalimaya is the only dive centre operating in this area so the waters will be all yours to explore.

Dive Center

Highlights

  • Unlimited dives on the 400 meter long house reef 
  • Orientation & boat dives are guided by the diving staff
  • Speed boat to Eastern Sumbawa, Gili Banta, Sangean Volcano or Western Komodo
  • Spectacular macro/muck diving, current diving and coral diving  
  • Shaped by the vision of 6 diving professionals
  • The Kalimaya crew have established a Marine Protected Area in front of the hotel
  • The area is free of other divers and resorts to ensure privacy and satisfaction

Description

Kalimaya Dive Resort offers daily boat diving throughout the year to three world renowned locations, in addition to the incredible house reef.

Only a boat ride away are the treasures of Komodo National Park, and Kalimaya also offers day trips to Gili Banta and Sangean volcano where the biodiversity is overwhelming. The house reef alone is already worth several dives as it's full of macro life. Kalimaya are passionate about protecting the environment and have worked hard to establish a Marine Protected Area directly in front of the resort.

They now have around 50 dives sites, 90% of which have been found and named by the Kalimaya crew themselves. Most dive sites are between 5 minutes and 1 hour away. There's also a nearby Manta cleaning station, and white and black tip sharks are regularly spotted in these waters.
