HOTAL UYAH AMED AND SPA RESORT
The Uyah Amed & Spa Resort is located in an area known for its beautiful environment, fantastic dive sites and traditional Balinese lifestyle. Hotel Uyah (the Salt Hotel) is built on and around existing “fields” for traditional sea salt panning and aims to preserve this heritage.
The airconditioned Ocean View Bungalows are all sea facing. Each bungalow is 30 sqm including a bathroom plus a terrace of about 9 sqm. The four poster beds are equipped with mosquito nets which, in fact, serve much more as a design feature. Due to the salt panning the soil is quite salty and therefore not suitable for mosquitoes to lay their eggs so there are few mosquitos.
Diving Highlights and Bucket List Dive Sites:
Bali is has excellent macro and muck diving with many critters about. Diving here is very easy and a relaxing experience as there is no current (or very light at the most). Due to its proximity of the Mount Agung volcano, the sand is black and this makes a great and unusual contrast with the colourful coral.
Situated in Nusa Penida this excellent site offers incredible marine life. There is a slope with beautiful coral and no current which makes it an easy dive. The highlight of this site is definitely the manta rays. The best chances to spot them are from March to June but with luck the manta rays can be seen all year.
LIBERTY POINT WRECK
The most famous site in Bali, the USS Liberty Wreck is one of the greatest sunken ship wrecks in the world! The liberty ship was hit by a Japanese torpedo then was beached near Tulamben. In 1963, the eruption of Mount Agung caused the vessel to slip off the beach, and it now lies on a sand slope in 9 to 30 m of water. The wreck is about 130 m long with the shallowest part at about 5 m deep and the deepest on the other side of the wreck at about 30 m deep.
JEMELUK BAY & FISH PYRAMIDS
The Reef is an excellent site for both divers and snorkellers. To the right of the bay is the Wall and a gentle slope. Jemeluk offers easy diving and is an excellent spot for underwater macro photography. Spot the rare ghost pipefish and the mimic octopus here. The Drop Off on the right side is rich in gorgonias, the reef coral offers shelter to a multitude of nudibranchs and reef fish. On the cliff, you will encounter turtles, black tip and white tip sharks, groupers, napoleon fish, parrot fish.
The reef is also known as pyramid because of the shape of the reef and very rich in nudibranchs, Leaf scorpion fish, leopard moray eels as well as the wasp fish can also be seen on this site.
At Bunutan Point you will find large schools of garden eels, along with other macro subjects. Schooling barracudas and other pelagics are also found at this site. Drift along the incredible coral garden, and keep an eye out for larger sea life as you move along this 500 meters long reef.
One of Bali’s best dive sites, the Japanese Shipwreck lies in Lipah Bay. Further down the coast from Amed and is surrounded by a rich reef. This site is a 20 meter sunken wreck of a Japanese patrol ship which sunk during world war 2. Lying at a depth varying between 2-12 meters, this wreck is teaming with colourful soft corals all over the surface. This is an excellent macro observation and photography spot.
This is one of Bali’s least visited dive sites and is a great place to spot some of the larger pelagics. The north of Gili Selang offers excellent dive site, but it must be noted that this site is for the more experienced diver as the current can be tricky. It a is a good dive site to see bigger sharks such as the grey reef shark and sometimes the famous Hammerhead.
