Great Adventure, Nice to relax
I am a frequent traveller to Bali, but this year the traffic and chaos of Bali was a true annoyance so decided to get away from the island and the traffic. Most importantly my boyfriend agreed so we set off for a little adventure to Nusa Lembongan just a short 25 minute speed boat ride from Sanur.

We had heard from a fellow traveler that we met surfing that there was a new resort on the island that was gay owned and would be able to offer us a queit place to relax and get in some great scuba diving.

We were delivered to the dive resort by the speed boat company, the cost of the ticket included transportation to your hotel. We were greeted by 2 very friendly Canadians who quickly organized our check in. The Indonesian staff seemed surprisingly happy to carry the oversized luggage accross the garden to the bungalow!!

The rooms are new, and made of local building materials. The room is large with air conditioning and an open air bathroom which included hot water. The mattress was the best I have ever slept on in Bali!

We organised some dives with the boys and were AMAZED by the bio diversity and the reef health. We were fortunate to see Mola Mola's, mantas, baracuda, schools to snapper and a whole host of other colourful reef fish. The water was cooler then other places we had been diving but again seeing those large fish made it worth it! The meals provided on the boat were very tastey and changed daily.

There is a large pool in the middle of the property and offered a great place too cool off from the Indonesian sun. The pool also offered a spectacular place to sit and enjoy the sunset. The resturant and bar offered simple meals and a good range of local and imported spirits, the bartender's signature drink Gin Lemon Grass fizz was fresh and became my drink of choice for my stay at Blue Corner Dive.

We intended to only stay 4 nights but were so relaxed we booked in for 2 more nights and were able to enjoy Blue Corner's weekly friday night party. A mix of tourists and locals. There was an area for dancing and a more chilled atmosphere around the beach fire. My boyfriend and I felt comfortable with open displays of affection.

I will be staying with Blue Corner Dive again on my return to Bali and would recommend it to anyone looking to escape Bali for a few days of relaxation.
