The dive sites around this resort was superb. Even when dive in front of the resort you can find many nice creatures. The dive center staff are friendly and informative. I think this resort really need some maintenance and renovation.

Located in Pom Pom Island, a peaceful place, beautiful sea, variety of marine life, reef and corral, sea-stars, sea turtle. The resort is a simple and casual guesthouse, basic facilities, but nice people. The resort provide a morning trip to different islands nearby for snorkelling or driving everyday which is fun. The worst are having rubbish and plastic bottle all...
