The Maluku Divers Resort in Laha is the only dedicated dive resort in Ambon. The resort was built specifically with divers in mind and boasts the most unique and comfortable accommodations in the whole of Maluku. Each individual bungalow is over 60 square meters, with private bathroom, hot water, air conditioning and a large covered private wooden terrace. Each bungalow also has the unique feature of individual editing desks for each diver. The ten bungalows look out over Ambon Bay and the incredible muck diving and critter sites to be found there, the ultimate location for diving Ambon.
The Photography Facilities
The Maluku Divers resort has a wide array of topside facilities which are focussed to assist photographers on the hunt for the elusive perfect shot.
The placement of the dedicated camera rinse tanks is close to the expansive camera equipment area so that it is possible for photographers to soak their rigs in fresh water while showering and changing after the dive. After that, a wet camera area has convenient tables upon which to dry housings and remove the majority of water from the set ups, with the use of the camera towels which are provided by the resort, or with compressed air if preferred.
Once through the wet camera area, photographers enter the large dedicated camera room, to the individual stations on the work benches. Multiple charging sockets line the walls, along with shelves and racks for the multitude of equipment and cases required by photographers. A number of reading lights also allow divers to focus light on exactly the right spot.
This camera room is also a great setting for discussions on editing techniques and for presentations by workshop or shootout leaders.
