Villa Markisa is a must for all serious divers lucky enough to visit Bali. Situated on the East Coast of Bali, it is a diver's paradise. First of all, the resort is impecable, beautifully landscaped and comfortable. We stayed in the Master Bedroom, which I understand is the largest room. We had a very large private balcony overlooking the sea...

This secluded villa is beautiful, elegant in its simplicity and serenity, and run very well. The scuba diving is easily accessed on the premises, the dive shop does all the work topside, and it is a good location for relatively easy diving. Meals are communal, so you get to make new friends and talk about the day's underwater adventures and...

Room: We stayed at Room 4. Spacious bed room, huge bathroom and sea viewing terrace. Air-con worked very well :) The room was cleaned after our 1st dive and night-make was done while we were out for Dinner which made our 6-day stay very comfortable. Diving: You are required to reach the dive boat from the shore, and you need...

Villa Markisa, set on the coast of East Bali is nothing short of a really classy special experience. This is a very meticulously maintained property. Everything is crisp, clean, professionally looked after from the comfortable rooms to the excellent service from everyone at the resort. The main dining room is elegant.

Where to begin with the superlatives for this gem of a dive resort.... I returned to Tulamben for two days of diving after 15 years away and I could not have picked a better place for this reunion. Christiane and Pedro (co-managers/owners) run a tight but very caring ship. The little boutique resort looks brand new, even though it has...

Coming back from our Australia-trip on the way home we stayed 6 days at Villa Markisa, Bali; a extraordinary and beautiful resort, not only for divers. Several dive areas are in a 10 minutes boat distance, including the wreck of "USS Liberty". We have had up to 2-3 dives a day with very helpful dive guides. Beyond the dives we...

This place is awesome! I've been to several places, but this place has been my favorite. We stayed in the Master Bedroom and it was amazing! Looks just like the pictures and it was very clean and large. Very comfortable stay with an awesome bathroom. The spa tub was awesome too and there was a mini bar in the room...

Everything is great about Villa Markisa, the room; the food, the diving, the staff. I stayed there with my family, and really enjoyed my stay. Siving wise, tulamben has dive site everywhere, every corner. You could just walk out on the beach, 5 meters from the hotel; dive and get an awesome macro dive. The wreck is very nice too!
