She is a really beautiful boat, with the added bonus of a truly beautiful location too! After sleeping in a spacious, elegant room, enjoying a tasty breakfast and thorough but excited dive briefing, we went to look for manta rays at a cleaning station – and we weren’t disappointed! We had two great dive sites including white and black mantas; and even experienced a very close encounter at the end of the second dive as manta gracefully floated right above my head!


If you like fantastic diving, excellent crews and a super relaxing boat, the Arenui is the place to spend time on.


The Arenui is the first ever liveaboard where I felt like extending my trip for another 11 days. The most comfortable boat, friendly staff, fantastic food and most importantly excellent diving. I will return.


Arenui is a new but a very well set up & run diving operation. Gerry, gives very informative and entertaining dive briefings with lots of details and clear diagrams. The boat is well set up for diving & very comfortable for relaxing between dives. Up to 4 dives per day are offered (including night dives) which sometimes are better than diving during the day. Overall a highly professional Liveaboard that I would recommend very highly.


Absolutely a fantastic week!

All the staff were amazing, very personable and learned our preferences right away.

Can’t say enough about Famhi he gave us 110% all week. I loved the Coral Garden and Batu Bolong, best diving ever!

The Arenui as fabulous accommodation and dive set up.

The food was so tasty, I ate too much!

Thanks for an amazing week!
