“Amazing location great value south sea Pearls”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

At the end of 800 metre bush track on the northern Bali coast is one of Indonesia's best kept secrets. Having spent most of life in Australia's Kimberley it was great to see the Balinese having a go at what Broome used to do best. Off the shore you can see the pearl netts from the end of a 40 mtr jetty. They look to be hanging in around 10 to 20 mtrs depth in beautiful clean water. The showroom here at Penyabangan is upstairs right on the beach. There is a selection of top quality round pearls ranging from 10mm to 15mm in size priced between $500 to $3000 in price. About 30% cheaper than what you would pay in Broome. There is quite a large selection of beautiful baroque pearls also but for me the highlight was the superb quality of the sterling silver jewellery that is on display. Luckily for me it was 70% off the day I visited. I will be back again next year for sure!

“on the fence”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

It was interesting to watch a video demonstrating how they operate. They even did a live demonstration of an "implant" in order to achieve certain pearls. I am not so fond of that. I will be looking for "natural" pearls if I am ever in the market.

“Really interesting and lovely pearls”
Reviewed 14 April 2013 via mobile

We didn't have any great expectations of this but really enjoyed the experience. We were treated to a private demonstration of how the oyster shells are seeded and there is a great documentary on how pearls are farmed, sorted and priced.

Very professional facilities and a lovely shop where you can purchase some pearls or jewellery.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

The shop is very pleasant although the approach road is a dirt track.The staff are very professional and friendly. We bought a pearl, but they are not cheap. The jewellery looks great, but you need your plastic. The demo of how a pearl is seeded and harvested is fascinating. The great thing is that Atlas are bringing jobs to the area too.
