Meet our activities manager

We can’t wait to show you around our reserve.

I have been working at Bawah reserve for 6 months as an Activities manager. I enjoy being close to water, in the company of the beautiful sea creatures, or hiking around our islands, sharing my knowledge, experience and passion for the array of activities and environment we are surrounded by.

I am experienced dive instructor for both SDI (Scuba Diving International) and PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors). My first Scuba Diving Experience was in 1998 doing a PADI Discover Scuba Dive at Tioman Island, Malaysia , where I fell in love with diving.

i look forward to meeting you at bawah soon!
