View from Manukan Island Dive Centre
Our PADI 5 STAR CDC Centre is located at the pool area of Manukan Island Resort next to the beach. Staying at the resort means no daily transfers out to the island, you wake up and spend the day scuba diving, joining our snorkelling safaris, or relaxing next to the pool.
During the day time Manukan island (outside of the resort) can be busy with day-trippers. However we limit the number of people at the dive centre and maintain a maximum 4:1 ratio of divers to PADI Instructor or 6:1 snorkelers to guide. Evening and night times are quiet, with only the one resort located on the island, guests enjoy peaceful sunsets, cocktails and beach walks.
Manukan Island Resort Facilities Include:
• Open Air Buffet & A’La Carte Restaurant
• PADI 5 Star CDC Dive Centre
• Volleyball and Badminton Courts
• Jetski, Banana Boats, Parasailing
• WiFi Internet
• Swimming pool
Dining is fairly casual with a “sand between the toes” kind of feel, perfect for us divers and island lovers. If you want to enjoy some exclusive luxury we offer fabulous sunset cruises for special occasions. We can also arrange special honeymoon packages and private beach dinners.
