We spent a really good time, even if rain was sometime there. Dives were outstanding with really smart local instructors. Anyway, all the staff was on top. Food is excellent, bungalows are well made and ideally located on the beach.

We were a group of 10 people and spent one week at Sangat island five resort. We have no complaints and spent probably our best family holiday! Even though the weather wasn't always perfect and Mosquitos were part of the party (normal during this time of the year), the staff helped us continuously to make our stay a perfect moment.... More

I stayed there for a night last Tuesday not knowing what to expect. But the place turned out to be a paradise and the staff was amazing! Just make sure you bring mosquito repellent during the rainy season.

We had a great stay at Sangat Island. I celebrated my 50th birthday there and they went out of their way to make it special for me. My husband organised a private banca to go snorkeling and have a picnic on Pass Island and then we had a massage when we got back. To finish off we had an amazing... More

My husband and I stayed just under a week at Sangat and booked based on the reviews we saw here. They were all right on point. This is a great place if you want to be truly "off the grid" and away from it all. Internet/cell connection is very limited but quite frankly, that is exactly what we were looking... More

We chose to stay at the Sangat Dive Resort as it is so close to the WW2 wrecks and as a special birthday treat. We've read many of the reviews and whilst we agree that it’s not ‘cheap’ it is good vfm. It’s almost a shame that ‘resort’ is in the name because the beauty of Sangat is that it’s... More

In line with most of the other reviews, top marks to JoJo for providing such personalised diving experiences, unforgettable. His social efforts each evening really go beyond what many dive resorts offer and help bring guests together. The proximity to so many wreck dives works well and the surrounding limestone geomorphology makes the location unique. I'm a frequent traveler to... More

sangatking, Owner at Sangat Island Dive Resort, responded to this review

Thanks for your feedback and sorry that you did not sleep well during your stay and maybe we could have moved you to a cooler cottage closer to the beach or added more electric fans in your cottage if you had mentioned it while you were here? We have just built new beach side cottages that have an open roof... More

Such a peaceful resort on the beach with well organised diving of various wrecks within easy reach of the beach. I however am not a diver but my daughter is an experienced one but I throughly enjoyed snorkelling in the bay seeing corals and multiple coloured fish while she explored wrecks. The bar is great and the whole place remarkably... More

We had an amazing stay at Sangat Island, we hardly saw anyone around except for drinks during the evening or when it was time for lunch/dinner. The food was surprisingly good(would have loved if they had a BBQ night for guest). The service was excellent as they staff was very attentive. The wreck diving was good with visibility around 10m.... More
