Bali is located in the centre of the Indonesian archipelago between the Indian Ocean in the south and the Java Sea in the north. With its 13,677 islands it is the largest archipelago in the world and connects Asia with Australia. The island with its 5,620 square metres is inhabited by almost 3 million Balinese. About 300,000 live in Denpasar, the capital. The majority of the population lives in small villages scattered all over the island along the paddy fields. From east to west a volcanic mountain range extends itself over the whole island with its highest mountain, the Gunung Agung (3,142 m). Bali, although only two kilometres away from Java, is mainly influenced by the Hindu culture, while the Moslem culture predominates Java. Almost nowhere in the world one can find such a fascinating blend of culture, religion, art and agriculture reflected in every day life.

The MATAHARI BEACH RESORT & SPA is the perfect place for both snorkelling and diving. At WERNER LAU DIVE CENTER all activities are planned. No matter whether our guests are experienced or not, if they like to use their own diving gear or one provided by the Dive Center, the instructor (PADI) will ensure that everyone is well prepared. Guests may have their first diving experience in our pool which has the ideal depth for training (3m).
And then they may enjoy the beautiful coral reef only 200 m away from our resort. The 10 km long untouched reef with its tropical flora and fauna (gorgonian woods, table corals, large horn coral fields) is ideal for snorkelling and diving: Even experienced and widely travelled divers will be enthusiastic about the diving at Menjangan Island, which is part of the Bali Barat National Park and is only 50 minutes away by boat. Here divers will find almost everything tropical waters can offer: Whale sharks, gorgonian woods, sea ferns, table corals, peaceful sharks, stingrays, tortoises and a lot more. An extreme richness of tropical fish can be observed. Steep face and current diving excursions are possible.
Only the MATAHARI BEACH RESORT & SPA and WERNER LAU DIVE CENTER has the exclusive rights for a direct access to Menjangan Island by boat. No other hotel and dive center in Bali can offer this privilege.
