A bunch of smiling staff will greet you as you walk into Tulamben Dive Resort — it was newly opened in April when we visited in May 2016, and they were all very keen to please, which they do— this is one of the better flashpacker options in the area.

Photo of Tulamben Dive Resort
Right on the main road in the centre of town, (though not beachside), Tulamben Dive Resort offerers spacious and spotless light-filled bungalow style rooms surrounding a large inviting deep blue swimming pool. The garden is yet to be established, but a few trees look like they will offer good shade in time.

Tiled air-con rooms are appointed with modern-style black wooden furnishings which smartly contrast with the neutral walls and floors and crisp white bed linen. Ceiling fans offer the option for naturally cool breezes. Tea-making facilities, a small safe and a minibar are all part of the deal and an alcove in the L-shaped room sports a lounge bench and coffee table, overlooking the garden, or enjoy the outlook from the furnished verandah. Gleaming, tiled hot-water bathrooms continue the black and white theme.

Sun lounges around the pool will be shaded when the trees grow, but for now are great for sun worshipers. There’s free WiFi, and included breakfast is served in your room (until a planned restaurant is built). We think Tulamben Dive Resort is an excellent value flashpacker option and have seen similar rooms for a much higher rate in Tulamben. As the name suggest they can sort you out for a dive too. Recommended.
