Deposit Payment Terms
We require a minimum of 30% deposit on the booking total to confirm a booking, full instructions will be provided to you at the time of your booking. You can either pay online via credit card or by bank transfer to our bank in Indonesia. We cannot guarantee your booking until this deposit has been received.
Bookings will be held for 7 days. We reserve the right to release the booking if no confirmation of deposit has been received by then.
Changes of dates to bookings after the deposit has been made can be done but will be subject to availability.
Balances will be paid at the resort on departure.
PAYING DEPOSIT BY BANK TRANSFER
Whether you are inside or outside Indonesia, you can transfer money to our bank account in Indonesia. You can transfer the minimum deposit of 30%, or you may find it more economical to transfer a larger amount, say 70%, and then settle the balance when you are here.
Full transfer instructions & bank details will be provided to you at the time of your booking, and when you make the transfer please let us know so that we can check this end. It normally takes 4-5 working days to reach us and we will notify you when it has arrived.
Paying Deposit by Credit Card
Please enter the amount below, you will then be taken to further screens to add your name, address and credit card details. We do not store any of your personal or credit card details.
The online form above provides a secure online way of paying with your credit card through Stripe (www.stripe.com), a global online payment processor that is trusted by thousands of businesses across the globe. The payments are managed by our payment agent Skypex Management (www.SkypexManagement.com).
Is there a charge for paying with my credit card via Credit Card?
Yes, we are charged 5% by Stripe and we will pass this onto to you.
Are packages changeable?
If you end up diving/staying less than your original package (e.g. because you are sick), in these cases we normally re-calculate the package at check-out, using the number of dives/nights you have actually done. However we reserve the right to levy a cancellation fee of up to 50% for late cancellations.
We highly recommend getting travel insurance to avoid these kind of problems, and we are happy to provide company-headed letters that can be used in the case of any insurance claims.
CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY
We realise that there is alot of stress about making a deposit for a booking in light of the corona-virus issues, we are therefore adopting a very flexible cancellation policy that will allow you to re-book at a later date at no extra cost:
For any existing bookings that are cancelled:
- We will offer a credit to be used for a new booking (the same as the original one) within 24 months from the original arrival date. The credit will be non-transferrable and the new booking will not incur in any cancelation or extra fee.
Please note that bookings that are re-booked for 2022 & 2023 may be subject to price increases due to the normal annual price reviews undertaken by us and many of our partner-accommodations.
- We realise that the global situation is changing rapidly, we will be constantly reassessing the situation and will adjust our policy accordingly.

For paying balances, drinks, extra dives, etc. when you are here, we accept the following methods:
- Cash – we accept most major currencies such as S$, US$ AUS$, GB£ and € as well as IDR (Indonesian Rupiah). This is the cheapest payment option, and to give you peace of mind we have a safe to lock away cash as well as other valuables if required whilst you are here.
