Got loads of really helpful information from Marjan prior to our arrival on Pulau Weh, ...very useful as Sumatra is a difficult place to navigate on a backpacker budget. Special mention to Rosa who went above and beyond to guide a fantastic dive for my boyfriend and I who were struggling with confidence after a few bad experiences with currents...

Superb diving with beautiful diving spots with lots of opportunities for micro photography (lots of nudis). Our favourite was the underwater hot springs. Room is large and comfortable. Toilet basic. We requested the reception to call on some masseuse to our room - Well entertained. A few restaurants nearby - nice food reasonable prices. Very secluded area - which we...

Went to Pulau Weh with my boyfriend in May 2015 and did OWD with Lumba Lumba Diving Center. We were the only ones in our course and got really intense and individual teaching. We were lucky to have the best instructor as you could ever imagine, a woman called Titta :) She was a devoted and patient teacher and thanks...

Nice resort in Pulau Weh. Cosy rooms with beautiful garden. But no aircond! 2 dives a day. Not enough for hardcore divers. People are nice. No kitchen. But few family owned restaurants next to the resort by walking distance. Recommended pre-offer as long waiting time.

Very competent and caring staff- felt well taken care of. Refresher course with Sarena- she is very patient and an excellent teacher. Diving again next day with Stefan- saw school of 20 devil rays and scores of other fish. There was a strong current- they are very safety- conscious and helpful. The room was superb and well-built.

Extremely impressed with this dive center and staff! Everyone was so welcoming and friendly from the first pick up at the airport until the day I left. Had only planned on staying one week, but extended my stay for one more. The dive groups were small, and were arranged on the experience levels of the divers. Can't not compliment the...

Enjoyed one day diving at Lumba Lumba. Quite big dive center at a nice beach! Competent staff! They help where they can and are open for questions and chats. Snorkeling for non divers possible with no problems! A lot of rental equipment, some of it seem to be a bit older like the suits (wholes and scratches), but well serviced...

I did my divemaster training on Pulau Weh at Lumba Lumba, and that was the best choice I made my entire trip. Driving up to the beach for the first time was like a fairytale, crystal clear water and beautiful white sand. Arriving in the shop, I was greeted by the lovely Tari, who works at the desk, she showed...

I didn't arrange this trip, a friend of mine did all of the research and then had to cancel unexpectedly, so I ended up going on my own. Every thing was organized well, I was met at the airport by a very charming man, Mr Firdaus, who got me to the ferry on Dec 26th and the ferry departed for...
