Perched on a stunning clifftop, Adiwana Warnakali is located a mere 15 minutes away from Toya Pakeh Harbour. The brand-new boutique resort, which opened 1 September 2020, invites guests to dive into a tropical adventure and explore the island’s iconic aquatic beauty. The resort is equipped with 15 spacious and comfortable suites, each room featuring an expansive balcony that opens to breath-taking views of the neighbouring Nusa Ceningan, the surrounding azure blue waters and the majestic Mount Agung beyond. The rooms feature a design with nautical elements, including decorative oars and blue bathroom tiles.

Diving enthusiasts will be pleased to know that Adiwana Warnakali is home to Warnakali Dive Centre, which has been accredited as a 5-star Instructor Development Dive Resort by Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI). This of course means that in addition to offering PADI courses and Scuba Diving Safari, Warnakali Dive Centre also offers PADI Instructor Development courses. The dive centre features a 3-metre deep pool for training and courses, a classroom, an equipment room, and a souvenir shop.

Presenting an elevated experience with their unique clifftop setting, guests can kick back, relax and enjoy a tranquil sunny day out lounging in the swimming pool, which is located adjacent to the semi alfresco restaurant. Laze all day on the daybeds or cool off in the swimming pool, the magnificent panoramic views of the vast ocean and Mount Agung right in front of you is like no other. Quench your thirst with their signature cocktails from the pool bar as the iconic sunset gradually disappears in the distance. If you’re lucky, you might catch a school of dolphins swimming in the ocean during sunset.
