1. WHY KALIMAYA DIVE RESORT
Kalimaya Dive Resort in East Sumbawa Island offers muck, reef and drift diving opportunities just a short ride away from Komodo National Park, and is the only dive operator providing diving day trips to West Komodo, Gili Banta, and Sangeang Volcano, so their fortunate guests can expect diving away from the crowd of divers/snorkelers that visit Labuanbajo in day trip.
2. ACCOMMODATIONS & FACILITIES
Kalimaya's eco sustainable bungalows
We have 2 different room types, Beach front bungalow or Hill side bungalow. Each room sleeps 2 x guests in 1 x queen bed or 2 x twin beds with en-suite open air bathroom, air conditioning, private balcony, and beach front access.
Please note, our rooms are sharing rooms. If you are a single traveler alone and would like to not share a twin room with another guest, then a 60% single supplement surcharge will apply. We encourage you to not be dissuaded by sharing a room as the rooms are large enough to share and the experience is as the same as sharing a room on a liveaboard.
Wifi is currently not available at Kalimaya Dive Resort. It is possible to use a local sim card to have phone signal and sometimes internet connection in some areas of the Resort. Please note that even this way, the internet connection is not very reliable. With the world being so busy and connected these days, we hope you can use the time at Kalimaya Dive Resort to enjoy a digital detox.

3. RESORT ACTIVITIES
Only a boat ride away from the treasures of the Komodo National Park, Kalimaya Dive Resort offers day trip diving to West Komodo, Gili Banta, and Sangeang Volcano. Twin this with our macro filled house reef with macro life, and a nearby Manta Ray cleaning station, Kalimaya Dive Resort offers an excellent array of options for the new and seasoned diver.
What we, and we hope you, find very exciting is that we are the only dive resort / dive centre operating in this area, and as such 60% of the dive sites presented below have been found by us, and named by us. Many of the larger liveaboard companies have asked for our dive site co-ordinates – but guess what, they aren’t going to get them anytime soon. Our guests have the luxury of 99% of the time being the only dive boat on the site in its purest form!
