"The most amazing week!"
The whole experience, right through from my initial enquiry back in February, was seamless.
Yoga with Kawi was inspirational, I've learnt so much from him and feel so much more at peace with life and myself.
Diving was awesome. I had the please of diving with Jacob, Jos and also Putu and all of them were fabulous guides and teachers.
The whole team were fantastic, made me feel really welcome, and made this a very special holiday. I can't recommend them highly enough.
A huge Thank You to all of you, and hope to see you again!!

"Excellent place to find zen "
The instructors were awesome and very friendly and accommodating! The dive sites were wonderful. The yoga instructor Kawi, took a different approach to yoga than I was used to but it was wonderful nonetheless. He brought in more history and tying in yoga with your life which made the whole experience great. You also get massages with your stay so take advantage of that :)

"Everything was just perfect!"
I had the most amazing time with Zen Dive Bali! I completed my online course, did my pool sessions and ventured into the ocean with the instructors and felt very safe and in good hands the entire time. The dives were amazing, and the schedule of events was prefect! The hotel is absolutely wonderful and I'm having to go on a post holiday diet immediately! My partner did a different course than me, and our instructors were so accommodating and made everything work out perfectly!
Thanks to Jacob and Jos for the amazing memories and relaxing week!

"The best people and the most beautiful place"
The dive team is very responsible, knowledgeable, caring and fun!! The yoga instructor taught me a lot about the history of yoga and how it is done Bali.
I always felt safe and I really enjoyed the experience. A+++

Diving: Both instructors were professional, energetic, knowledgeable, motivating, and patient. The other staff were just as pleasant. My first dive was rocky, but I got through it with having skill and patience from the Instructors. Every dive after that was amazing. From sea turtles to nudibranches, I would not trade this experience for anything and therefore highly recommend Zen Dive. I will return myself!!
Equipment: No need to bring anything as the shop has all the gear. Bring a camera- you will need it!
Hotel: Very friendly and accommodating. The Spa, the view, and food was incredible.
Location: The location of this retreat is in a quieter part of town, which is great if you are trying to get away from the big city noise. You are walking distance to the town full of restaurants. Some restaurants will even pick you up and drop you back at hotel for free.
Driver: Having a driver pick up and take to airport was great and stress-free. They were waiting for me upon arrival.
Yoga: The Yoga instruction was very different than what you are used to, but if you keep an open mind, Kawi (Yoga Instructor), was one of the best I have ever worked with.

"An amaizing experience"
The Diving teachers are very professional, friendly and patient there only goal is to make you feel comfortable and happy.
The Yoga teacher is also amaizing and gives you a lot of insite into the yoga history and poses.
The massages are also good and an experience that can not be missed.
The accommodation exceeded all my expectations being an amaizing experience.
All the staff are very friendly and nice. I was traveling by myself and felt very welcomed and at home.

"My experience with Zen dive and the Rama Resort was amazing."
From the pickup by the driver Wayan, it was great. He was very helpful, and great to communicate with. The hotel is located with amazing views. Very nice room, I did upgrade to ocean view after 3 nights, highly recommend that. The pool was great. Breakfast was okay but had amazing views. Yoga is not that great. The hote only offers two classes during the week and rest of time, you have to go to the Ashram which has great views but not much for interaction and the instructor wasn’t great. The times also were from 4-5:30. The diving experience was amazing. I got to do some learned meditation and a dive in first day with Jos. He is a great person to know. The next day, the Manta Ray was also great and I also did three more dives to include USAT Liberty. That’s more than enough diving, but I did get a cold on day 5. Jacob in the dive center was a great help, easy going and gave advice on live music and restaurants, came even out to celebrate my birthday with me. It’s a really laid back atmosphere, different then the nightlife in Kuta. The tour we got including to see the water palace as great and we spent two days on a white sand beach which was relaxing. This is an excellent place to relax, avoid the crowds, do some diving and a little yoga and sight seeing. It tends to be a little older crowd. I would highly recommend it to experience authentic Bali.

"Great time at the zen dive Bali "
Jos and his team were pleasure to work with. They made diving trips fun and safe. You get your yoga as part of the activity in the hotel or local ashram, but since I am the beginner it suited me just fine.
