I was the other guest with Myrna B at the Dive Lodge and can back up her experience . Her recount is completely accurate. It is such a shame that when left to themselves, without any management at all at the resort, the dive staff took it upon themselves to sexually harrass us. We were the only guests there and felt uncomfortable the whole time. The staff used all the resort facilities, sleeping and lounging around. The television next to the office was blaring every night with their programs while staff surfed the internet and generally enjoyed a vacation themselves at our expense. WE tried to ignore the sleezy come ons by the dive staff, then we asked them to stop, that we were not interested but that just seemed to egg them on. Non stop they continued even when we were at dinner. Constantly telling us they wanted sex with us for fun! Touching and grabbing us, it was disgusting. No management to complain to and stuck on the island for a week. We asked several times for the name and contact info for management and were told they were in Bali. This beautiful place was ruined for us by the staff. We had travelled from Mexico for 3 days to come and dive here , a very expensive trip, to be treated this way was just unbelievable! How unfortunate in this beautiful place, some of the best diving in the world, this was how guests were treated. The facilities are very nice and when management is onsite these problems are probably not an issue but I CANNOT in good faith recommend this resort, especially to women travelling alone. We are very experienced divers from the Mexican Caribbean and are involved with the tourist industry and have never experienced anythng like this before. When we complained to our travel agency, they were very good at informimg the management for us and we did receive a visit and a fruit basket from the Dive Lodge on our last day in Bali before returning to Mexico. So a $3000 US week of harrassment for beautiful diving. Now I need a vacation.
