We spent the last week of our three week holiday in Gangga Island Resort and after two fabulous weeks on the mainland there was always the chance of being disappointed. However that was not the case at all. The bungalows are very comfortable and clean and all the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Each bungalow has their own sunbeds and... More

It was the perfect place for a honeymoon. The place is so relaxing, the staff so friendly and helpful. The rooms are well appointed and very clean, the pool has the most amazing view and its great to have tea and cake around it whilst the sun goes down. The massages are amazing with fantastic views over the sea. The... More

Stayed through Christmas into the New Year and while there for a longer period than most guests - it felt just about. There's little else on the island besides the resort and 2 local villages but we never felt bored or cut off. Set on an idyllic beach - it's picture postcard perfect with sweet huts where you're right on... More

Stayed at the Gangga Island Resort & Spa from the 25 to 29 of december, and enjoyed every minute of it. Laying on the beach, with beautiful surroundings the hotel was like paradise. Both the possibilities with scuba diving and snorkeling was used, and was a success. The guides at the Padi diving center were experienced, and showed us many... More

We stayed here 5 nights and had a wonderful time. We had a clean room with an enormous bathroom and a private beach (with loungers) just in front of it. Wifi was available all over the hotel grounds including room, beach and pool area which was lovely. Food was really good, not fancy but very tasty. We didn’t understand why... More

We had a great, although short, stay in Gangga. The beach is beautiful and the grounds are quite nice. The food was very good, we were happy to have local options on the menu at every meal. Our dive guide was very good as well and the boat quite comfortable, the warm fresh water to rinse off quickly is a... More

If you are looking to dive in the Bunaken area, this is the place to stay, hands down. I'm a PADI instructor with 200+ dives and this is one of the most professional and service-oriented operations I've ever been at. The staff is hyper organized and diligent. They rinse your gear every single day, and you only handle it when... More

It's a great hotel for divers because that's really all there is to do, although some guests had non-diving spouses who relaxed on the beach or pool all day. Most of the bungalows are beach front, some are set back and probably have no view. We stayed beach front and we had a nice sandy beach in front with two... More
