After visiting 14 of the best dive resorts on our recent Best of SE Asia trip, we decided to highlight 6 of them as being the top luxury dive resorts in Southeast Asia.


Villa Markisa

With its waterfront location at the foot of the Gunung Agung volcano, Villa Markisa offers natural beauty and a relaxing atmosphere. Personalized service, and a unique dining experience combine to make this a unforgettable experience.  Plus, you can’t leave out its perfect location, just minutes away from some of Bali‘s best dive sites!


Villa Markisa is an exquisite resort in design and atmosphere


Sorido Bay Resort

With only 7 cottages to offer, Sorido Bay Resort is built for a personalized, intimate experience.  Even between dives guests return to the resort to lounge on the jetty and soak in the remote, peaceful atmosphere.  If you’re making your way to Raja Ampat – I highly recommend you plan a visit here.

Lembeh Resort

This resort is hidden among a jungle landscape along the Lembeh Strait.  With its focus on extra treats like a pool overlooking the ocean and luxurious spa my list would not be complete without adding this gem.
