We stayed here for 2 weeks in August/September. We stayed in a bungalow room, and there was a nice patio outside of our room with lounge chairs and an umbrella. Every morning, we were provided with a sheet of the daily activities.
Breakfast is delicious. There are many options and includes a free coffee beverage (options like cappuccino, tea, etc). My favorite breakfasts were the pineapple pancake and the tulamben sunrise breakfast (plate of fruit, two eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes, bread basket with butter and jams). There were also options like cereal for those pickier eaters. The restaurant also had delicious options for lunch and dinner. We ate at many restaurants in tulamben while we were there, but this resort restaurant was our favorite.
We had friends that stayed at Matahari. I’m glad we ended up staying at Tauch though. If you are looking for a cheap room just to have a place to stay, then Matahari is a good choice, but if you want a nice resort to relax on with beautiful views and delicious food, then I would recommend Tauch.
Most of the diving is shore diving. The shores here are very rocky so be sure to have booties. There are also options for boat dives, but they are small boats. I enjoyed the boat diving though as it was such a unique experience.
Overall, this was a great resort. Especially if you are travelling with people that don’t scuba dive or children. The service was excellent, and we had a lovely vacation. We will stay here again.
