Just came back from Tasik Ria, and the resort was great. My friends and I were there for 8 days. We were given a package of 4 days diving and a highland tour. I must comment our highland tour guide, Cliff. His hospitality during the tour was out of the world, patiently explaining the queries that was put forth to him by us. He even helped to run an errand for us during his non-working day and ensured that we got what we wanted and giving us calls to keep us updated on the outcomes. The hotel staffs are all very friendly and helpful it, drivers who drove us out to town made sure language was never a barrier... ordering food for us, translating and explaining things to us... Everyone there wore a smile and it felt good to be there. On our departure day, the staffs gathered in front of our bus and sang a folk song which left us with an unbearable feeling to leave the place.
Some improvements are needed for the cooking there. Other than that, we had a wonderful time there.
The diving was awesome, our dive gears were surrendered and were found on the dive boat rigged up ready for action every single day. All we needed to do was to check the gears, put them on and leap into the waters. Their dive boat is great, everything is convenient on board. With experienced dive guides from Tasik Divers, especially with Nordy, we get to see everything at every corner of the walls, corals, sand... Lots of macros to take, abundant sightings of mantis shrimps, nudibranches and lion fishes, a giant resident Frogfish, turtles, the fire clam at Lembeh, octopus and many more... I had my most memoriable dives at the house reefs which is just 2 min boat ride from the Tasik Ria Sunset Jetty...
