Initially booked for a week with my partner for some chill time and diving ended up staying for 3 weeks. The hotel is located conveniently on a central area of a beautiful beach. During the day, the banana chairs and day beds are perfect for some relax time between dives or simply soaking up some sun.
The staff are all very accommodating and friendly. Sven the owner and Soren the GM were super helpful and friendly during our stay. They even dove with us on several occasions to see the thresher sharks!
Ocean Vida also provides currency exchange, and the rate they give was better than several banks in Singapore. Make sure you book directly through them to get a better rate than Agoda!
Happy Hour - Drinks at the bar during the evening after some diving action is nice...The Mango daiquiris a must-try.
Although Ocean Vida is operated independently of Sea Explorers, they have a great little setup going together. I did my Advanced Open Water with them. My instructor Ms Dish was awesome and patient throughout the course. I highly recommend her as an instructor. Boat crew and guides simply fun and we had an amazing time.
Looking forward to coming back.
