I just came at the welcome desk, it looks like a shop actually and felt very bad welcomed by the employees, (Man and female Caucasian) did not even say hello, just stared at me like an intruder. Their tone was really rude, and seems to work not very hard to attract customers. Their business might be already too fruitful that... More

I did my Nitrox course with Lutwala Dive a couple of weeks ago and was very happy to choose them! Fern was my instructor and she was great, very thorough and keen to make sure I learnt everything properly, followed by a couple of awesome dives. Lutwala is a great dive shop with a great vibe. Well organised, good gear... More

We were so lucky to get into this adventure with the amazing professionals that work on the center! Without having dived before, within the 1st dive we were already feeling great underwater. Furthermore, you are sure to get all the information and attention you want as we had 2 teachers and 1 trainee taking care of the 2 of us... More

My wife and I did a PADI Open Water Course with Lutwala. Our dive instructor Caspar was amazing! He created a really relaxing atmosphere. He taught us the diving skills very well! The overall experience was that this diving school wants you to dive as relaxed as possible. Other diving schools at the Gilis, like Manta, are 'dive fabrics' in... More

Bryn took us out over 6 days + was probably the best diving experience I've ever had. He perfectly hit the balance of making every dive awesome + no more complicated than it needed to be, smoothly organised + completely professional. The diving there was fairly good, specifically for turtles, but definitely worth going to for the staff + the... More

Did my open water at Lutwala on my honeymoon, and the thing that made it an amazing experince was the guys that work here, they want you to have fun while you're learning. The mighty Bryn taught me and was a real hero, big shout out too to Roland, Adi (trainee dive master, so didn't 'really' work there) and Vanessa... More

If you want to dive on GiliT, you really should go to this dive center. The people there are very friendly and very helpful. I did my open water course there and it is an experience that I will never forget! My dive instructor was very competent and I even made some friends there. I can only praise this dive... More

I was with Lutwala for the 8 days + Rescue package and the entire trip was an AWESOME experience. Ramadan ended right smack in the middle of my trip. Even operating with only a skeletal staff for over 3 days and Lutwala made my stay fully enjoyable and relaxed. First, the rescue course was conducted by Roland, a very professional,... More

Oh where to start. - Boat didn't turn up, so had to do a shore dive. - They charged 40USD per dive when all other dive centres on Gili T have a 35USD fixed rate. - Inexperienced divemaster. - No briefing (especially when there was a strong current) - Really run down dive shop and resort. - No organisation what...

Went for 2 dives with this company. I'm not PADI certified so my first day was learning the ropes before a dive. The instructors, on both dives, were Europeans - both super professional, smart and safety conscious. This centre has a large pool so you can actually swim underwater not just dunk your head and move around a little. I... More
