I went diving here in April. I was very nervous following a bad experience elsewhere some ten years ago and hadn't been in the water since but the friendly manager Tori put me at ease assuring me I could have an instructor to myself and take all the time I needed. She put me in Chris's very capable hands. He... More

Went to Lutwala to get a refresher dive since it had been a while since I went diving. Instructor Chris was simply fantastic with his calm demeanor, vast knowledge and friendly approach. The dive sites were fantastic and you never have to travel especially far away to get to some really interesting and wonderful sites. I ended up doing 5... More

We were recommended to dive with Lutwala as they offer small dive groups, I was pretty scared of the unknown but the crew here all put me at ease. Tori on the front desk was really friendly and helpful. Chris took my partner and I for our Discover scuba training and dive, he made us feel comfortable and explained everything... More

Great dive service. Friendly staff and dive guides. Low guides to diver ratios. Careful and caring boat operators and dive guides. Good service. Not the best dive locations or diving, but that is Gili. Good gear. Recommended.

I did my open water certification with Chris. The experience was fun and super informative. I like to geek out so was psyched that, as a trained marine biologist, Chris dropped regular "knowledge bombs" about the underwater ecosystem, evolution, and regional flora and fauna. I highly recommend this dive center. They were fast and efficient. And I got plenty of... More

We had an excellent experience,diving 5 times with Chris Laurent around the Gilis. The service is really customer oriented, diving is in small groups with 2-4 persons/dive master,logistics are really easy,the boat is in front of the diving center. I am a beginner diver and made my open water dives with Chris and also passed the exam. My fiancé as... More

We went to Gili without doing much research on the diving, and came across Lutwala upon recommendation. We were not disappointed as the instructors were friendly, easy going, and very professional. The dives were in small groups meaning you got extra attention from the instructors, and we were all able to dive together despite being mixed abilities. Overall, it was... More

We were looking for an escape from China during Chinese New Year and wanted a place that my younger daughter (10 yrs old) could finish up her OW certification. We chose Gili T as an alternate to Bali (have dove North East Shore, but not appropriate for a fresh OW student). Having checked the diver operators, we decided on Lutwala... More

Just back to HK after a week in Gili T which our group spent the majority of time diving. Lutwala came recommended by the villa we stayed at and it didn't disappoint. We were able to knock out the PADI Open Water and Adventure Deep Dive during the week thanks to the incredible staff at Lutwala Dive. Highly recommend them... More
