Atlantis Bay Resort
Atlantis Bay Resort is operated by the Scuba Corner dive outfit based in Singapore. Atlantis Bay Resort is situated on its own private beach. Mos of the time the resort will be unofficially closed when the weekend is over or when the dive trips are over.
They have friendly local represntative to welcome all the incoming visitors upon the arrival of the speedboats from Mersing. So you will be greeted by their warm welcome. Atlantis Bay Resort is suitable for backpackers as they offer quad-share bedroom for a well-deserved sleep.
Atlantis Bay Resort Facilities
The facilities provided by Atlantis Bay Resort is very basic. The resort is not for everyone, however, if you are used to the backpackers life style of staying, then Atlantis Bay Resort is for you.
Most of the room do not have air conditioning. You are close to the nature and you will be enjoying the natural air breeze.
The resorts also have a small cafe for you to enjoy a sip of coffee while enjoying the beach and sea view. All the packages are inclusive of breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have buffet style of meals ready to be served. So you do not need to worry about getting hungry on the island.
Atlantis Bay Dive Centre
One of the most important facilities they have here at the resort is the dive centre. So it is perfect for divers or people planning to do scuba diving. After all, prolific dive sites are why Pulau Aur is known for. So if you are travelling to Pulau Aur and not planning for a dive, it will be wasted.
The dive centre has:
- Two dunk tanks which are big enough to put your camera in. And since most people leave their equipment on board the boat, the tanks are fairly empty most of the time
- Showers sheltered in the dive centre area in case the outdoor ones on the beach are all taken
- Rods with hangers to hang your wetsuits. No knobbly things to hang your booties on though, so just place them on any flat surface to dry.
Diving at Pulau Aur is different and unique as you will need to leave all your diving equipment on the boat throughout your stay. So if you are planning to wash your equipment everyday then you will have to bring them on shore on your own. Then the next day, you will have to bring them back by your own. As they will be transferring from the diving boat via a rickety speedboat to shore, bring along your diving equipment back to the shore will be quite tiring and troublesome.
Atlantis Bay Resort Room
All their rooms come with attached bathrooms, and towels, shampoo and body soap will be provided to you. So if you want to have an easy going travel experience, you just need to bring your clothes, they have everything you need.
They also have twin-sharing room that can be pre-arranged at a higher rates.
The floor is wooden floor and with no carpets. So it nice and cool.
