Ceningan Divers is an eco-friendly resort located on Nusa Ceningan, a tiny island connected to nearby Lembongan by the famous ‘Yellow Bridge’. Ceningan has retained a peaceful and secluded atmosphere, making it the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of south Bali’s tourism.
The resort is located on the edge of the mangrove forest that lines the edge of the channel between Lembongan and Cenida. The dive centre, restaurant, lounge and bungalows are all set in beautiful gardens behind the mangroves, and were build to minimise any impact on the natural environment of the island. From this beautiful location, you can head out to dive the incredible sites around Lembongan and Nusa Penida, explore the mangroves, visit seaweed farms and the local villages, or climb up the ridge behind the resort for an amazing sunset view of Bali.

The Ceningan Lounge and Mangrove Restaurant, both located next to the resort swimming pool, are the heart of the resort and provide a great space for you to socialize, watch a film, smoke a shisha, or take advantage of the resort’s selection of board games. The lounge also transforms into a yoga shala where daily yoga classes are conducted. The Mangrove Restaurant itself offers a range of both Asian and Western dishes, including plenty of vegetarian options and even some unusual Ukranian specialities such varenyki. Hidden away in the mangroves is the Jetty Bar where you can enjoy a cold beer or an amazing cocktail after a day spent exploring the islands.
Ceningan Divers is managed by an experienced team who believe their ‘commitment to providing guests with the best learning experience is apparent in our dedication and our passion for our ocean planet’. The award-winning PADI 5-Star dive centre strongly emphasises high standards of training and safety - reflected in the well-maintained rental equipment and compressors, the SMBs and GPS radios carried by the dive staff and the resort’s custom-made dive boats fitted with all necessary safety equipment.
The resort is perfectly located to explore all of Lembongan and Nusa Penida’s exciting dive sites. You will be offered two boat dives every morning and can also sign up for extra afternoon or night dives. Dive groups are kept small with 4 guests to every guide and the resort caters for just 16 guests at most, guaranteeing a more personal service from the dive centre staff. Ceningan Divers offer courses from Bubblemaker and Discover Scuba, all the way through to Instructor Development and Master Scuba Dive Trainer. And if you would prefer to spend your afternoons doing something a little different, the resort has kayaks and stand-up paddle boards for hire which can be used to explore the beautiful local mangrove forest.
