Highlights of Diving Sumbawa

- The only dive operator offering day trip diving to the Sape Strait, West of Komodo Island, Gili Banta, and Sangeang Volcano
- The house reef and Sangean Volcano offer some great muck/macro diving.
- The Sape Strait and Gili Banta offer pelagics including blacktip, whitetip and grey reef sharks, reef manta rays, mobula rays, eagle rays, marble rays, tunas, and even whales when in season!
- Tropical island dive resort right on the beach in a private bay close to the dive sites, with wooden bungalows constructed using a combination of Teak and Mahogany sourced from local farms.
What can I see?
With over 45dive sites (and counting!) to explore you will see everything, and as they are the only operator in the region the they are private-sites for you to enjoy the pristine reefs without the traffic!
Muck/macro diving can be found on the house reef as well as some other reefs, these offer Shrimps, Rhinopia, Crabs, Octopus, and Bobtail squid among others. Another great site is Sangean Volcano that provides a breeding ground for every nudibranch possible – we counted 35 species on a recent visit!
The Sape Strait and Gili Banta offer pelagics including blacktip, whitetip and grey reef sharks, reef manta rays, mobula rays, eagle rays, marble rays, tunas, and even whales when in season!
You will also have unlimited House Reef diving, a site that they consider one of the best scuba diving sites in Sumbawa for muck/macro diving!!
What is the dive service like?
They offer a similar “Two-Fish-type” of dive service that includes:
- Nitrox available on-site
- Small groups of max 4 guests to 1 dive guide
- Dive groups are organised according to air consumption and dive experience
- Expert dive guides who have done thousands of dives, and are minimum of a PADI Rescue Diver trained
- Oxygen and first aid on every dive boat
- Friendly crew and dive guides – tourism is so new to the area that they understand and can say few words in english, but they learn very fast!
- All our dive guides are trained to assist photographers, spotting amazing critters and helping with carrying accessories
- Wash and store service – all dive gear is loaded onto boats in the morning, and removed and washed after your diving, so all you need to do is DIVE
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. Thank you to Stu, Tiegen, and the rest of the team for a truly unique and wonderful experience.

Kalimaya Dive Resort is located in East Sumbawa Indonesia- to the east of Bali and Lombok and to the immediate west of Komodo National Park and Flores island.
Getting to Kalimaya Dive Resort is surprisingly easy. Located only 20km north of the Sape ferry terminal (a 15 minute drive), and with multiple airlines offering daily flights from Bali Denpasar (DPS) to Bima (BMU) within 50 minutes, 40 minutes from Lombok (LOP), and Makassar; we can help you get to the resort and into your vacation as quickly as possible.
What is the accommodation like?
Kalimaya offers 10 rooms which are all located on the beachfront with stunning views over the ocean so that you can wake up to the sun rising over Komodo Island and Gili Banta, and fall asleep to the sound of waves lapping on the ocean.
They all have large queen sized beds (twin in some), air conditioning, private bathrooms including an open outdoor shower, plenty of storage space, a work desk and chair perfect for photo editing, and a beautiful private covered terrace to relax after an amazing day of diving.
Accommodation is on a full board basis and you’ll enjoy three homecooked meals a day. Produce is locally sourced and fish is caught using traditional fishing methods. The accommodation has been built with a sympathetic eye to the local environment and the resort aims to be as sustainable as possible in all operations.
On top of an amazing 400m private beach where you can spend your day relaxing, you can also take advantage of the beachfront pool, snorkelling on the house reef and SUP.

Indonesia Dive Safari
We offer 8 dive locations around Indonesia, visiting us means that you can book a Dive Safari of more than one dive location with the same operator in one holiday.
With many flights arriving into bali you can start or finish your dive holiday by diving in Bali. Our dive resort in Nusa Lembongan is only half-hour fast boat ride away from mainland Bali, and our dive resort in Amed is just a 2hour drive from Bali airport. If you are only here for a few days then take advantage of staying in Sanur and make day-trips from our Sanur dive center to Lembongan & Amed and save the hassle of moving accomm!
You’re in Indonesia already – why not explore some more exploring by diving in Lombok?! With direct flights into Lombok and fast-boat transfers from Bali its very easy to add on a trip to our center in South Lombok that offers relaxed reef and macro diving in the South Gili’s, or challenging adrenalin dives with pelagics in Belongas Bay. Both of these destinations are away from the crowds, but if you like a bit less remote then visit our dive center on Gili Air in North Lombok where you have 95% chance of turtles on most dive sites!
With direct flights from Singapore as well as Jakarta & Bali, diving in Manado could not more easy or accessible. Our dive resort in Bunaken offers incredible dives on the majestic walls of the Bunaken Marine Park, and our dive resort in Lembeh Straits offers diving in the muck diving capital of the world. They are also only 3hours apart so are easy to combine in one trip.
Our newest addition is our partnership with Kalimaya Dive Resort, the only dive operator offering day trip diving to the Sape Strait, West of Komodo Island, Gili Banta, and Sangeang Volcano! The 40-50mins direct flights from Bali, Lombok and Manado (via Makassar) makes it very easy to add Sumbawa diving as a combo with any of our other locations!
