Has anyone stayed at any Bangka resorts? I'm looking at Blue Bay divers and Murex. Couple of things I need.....Hot Water...In suite bathroom and A/C or ceiling fan:smiley20:

Any info is appreciated!

Why don't you just stay in Lembeh the whole time? Tired of muck diving?

8 nights is enough....12 nights a bit much.....plus after 8 nights they have to kick me out of Rm # 5!

I stayed there 9 nights my last trip and I didn't want to leave. The only thing I didn't like was the menu repeats itself after 7 days. They need a bit more variety in their menu.

Yeah I can see that Menu becoming tuff to swallow after 7 nights.....LOL...the food was great and you had a few selections at each meal!

Now back to Bangka...still have not heard back from Blue Bay Dives or Danny!

I would like to point out to you two that your conversations don't generate much in the way of sympathy from the rest of us financially challanged and vacation deprived divers. :smiley11:

Art as long as the violin is playing for you aren't you going to do a 7 day live aboard out of Phuket in March. Yeah you need a lot of sympathy as well.

Hey where is the trip report for Palau and Yap? Come on Art! Don't tell me it's at ZD I already looked.

Not written yet. I was waiting to finish up my pictures. I got back just before Christmas and left immediately to spend Christmas with my daughter and granddaughter in the LA area. Since I was gone for three weeks, my desk was awash in major and minor panics that nobody had bothered to act on in my absence.

And quit trying to divert attention from you bad behavior. If you keep looking for sympathy about your conspicuous consumption dive travel, we will give you a time out. :smiley32:

Well it looks like Bangka and the Murex resort....the Bangka part of the trip centers around a Sunday flight from Manado to SoWrong....This is a new flight by Express Air....they have not started service yet. One person says the flight will be in Operation by late this month or the start of next month. Another person says do not plan anything until that flight starts and then it is still a 50/50 shot:smiley5:

If they do not start that flight my choices are to take a 6:15 AM flight on Saturday to Sorong and spend the day on Saturday.....Guess I could ask Chuck what to do in SoWrong for the day....one of his favorites spots to hang out!...NOT!!

You could ask but I wouldn't know what to tell you. There is a local arts and crafts store but after you spend 46 mins there what will you do? Luckily I never had to spend much time in SoWrong. When are you headed back to Rogers Armpit?

I figure if I call it Roger's Armpit less people will go and the prices won't rise and the diving will stay awesome. Plus it goes well with SoWrong.
