Maluku Divers Ambon 2014 from Alex Yeo on Vimeo.
The Maluku Divers Resort in Laha is one of the must-visit locations in any diver’s Indonesian dive list. As the only dedicated dive resort in Ambon, Maluku Divers was built specifically with divers in mind and boasts the most unique and comfortable accommodations in the whole of Maluku.
At Maluku, ten bungalows look out over Ambon Bay and the incredible muck diving and critter sites to be explored. Each individual bungalow is over 60 square meters, complete with private bathroom, hot water, air conditioning, and a large private, covered wooden terrace. Every bungalow also has editing desks for each diver to optimize their photos and videos from the day’s dives. Maluku Divers is truly a diver’s paradise.
Maluku Divers was designed and configured to deliver diving-centric experiences. The resort focussed on providing convenient opportunities to enjoy Ambon Bay’s unique marine life, the primary reason thousands of divers flock to it every year. This reverberates throughout every aspect of the resort. The bungalows, considered the most unique accommodations in Maluku, showcase the character of Ambon while fulfilling the comfort and practicality needs of divers.
The Maluku Divers’ design echos its natural surroundings for as little impact to the environment as possible. It also amplifies the experience of absorbing the setting and taking in the fresh ocean breeze.
Despite its spectacular scenery and comfortable resort, the chief attraction of Maluku is the incredible creatures that call Ambon Bay and its surrounding areas home. Resort management continues its facility improvements to make it easier for divers to access the world-class muck diving, coral slopes, and topographical sites nearby.
Ambon Bay is most famous for the world class muck diving. A vast array of creatures that can be observed and photographed during long dives at shallow sites close to the resort. Regular sightings of resident marine life include: rhinopias, assorted frogfish, mandarin fish, ghost pipefish, harlequin shrimp, flamboyant cuttlefish, blue ring and hairy octopus, thorny and pygmy seahorse, stonefish, and inimicus, along with literally hundreds of different species of nudibranch. And, because the Maluku Divers Resort is the only dedicated diving resort within Ambon Bay, diving conditions are described as “Critters Without Crowds.”
Ambon City is on the southern half of Ambon Island. The city is the hub of central Maluku and a centre of shipping trade. Perhaps the most astounding aspect of Ambon City is the characteristic rush of an Indonesian city. Between the street sellers, the hustle and bustle, and the seemingly uncontrolled traffic, it’s a novel experience.
Full-day and half-day tours can be arranged by Maluku Divers so that divers can enjoy the experience of Ambon’s natural, historical, and cultural attractions.
Maluku Divers is situated on the island of Ambon, the capital of the Maluku Province in the east of Indonesia.
