We bought tickets online for a round trip fast boat ride from Sanur to Nusa Lembongan. We were initially skeptical about booking with them since we saw a negative review, but we were so glad we did! Not only was the boat ride organized and efficient, the very reasonable price included being picked up at our hotel in Seminyak, dropped off at our hotel in Nusa, picked up again from that same hotel, and then driven to our hotel in Ubud after our return to Bali.
Very good service.
We booked the boat to lembongan from Ubud using Dangap dangap tours. The pickup and return were included in the price (200k per person each way) and we were picked up from outside our hotel at 10:15 (exactly when they said we would be). The journey from Ubud to Sanur tool about 40 mins and the fast boat takes about 30 mins to get to lembongan. I would recommend this company. Everything went smoothly and was very professional. They whatsapp you frequently to check there are no issues.
My wife and I paid around $112 for the boat and hotel pick up and drop off. The island itself is nice, but there isn’t much to do there.
We got picked up at 0730 and arrived for 0815. The boat doesn’t leave until 9ish so we sat around for an hour waiting. The boat was then delayed by 30 mins for an unknown reason.
The seating arrangements are cramped. There is pretty much no room for your legs (I am 5ft 10”) and it is very uncomfortable.
The last boat left at 4.15 and you need to be back at the waiting point at 1530 - this is pointless. The boat did not leave until 1645 so again, another hour of pointless waiting.
The drop off back to the hotel was a nightmare. There was not enough transport for the people who had booked, so drivers were doing shuttle runs then coming back to get people. 45 minute wait for transport after we were dropped off. Traffic was so bad we ended up walking the last 3km to the hotel. We didn’t get home until 1930 due to the chaotic transport
All in all, not worth going to the island let alone paying the price for an overcrowded boat.
Very good boat and service. Beach club on Lembongan was awesome. You need to pay additional for surfboards but overall a very good fast boat company.
We always use Arthamas when we travel to Lembongan. They are incredibly professional and take care of everything from pickup and drop of to and from our accommodation to carrying our luggage on and off the boat. Their boat is well maintained and the trip is smooth and comfortable. I always recommend Arthamas to friends.
