I've visited more than 5 diving resorts but Gangga is THE best. Yes, it is expensive but it is worth especially if you go there with "special" people. Yes, I've been there twice with my families coming from Korea

End October, I spent 6 nights in this beautiful resort. All the rooms are of the same kind, the only choice you have to make is the location, near the restaurant and the swimming pool or at the end of the resort for more privacy (room 15). I stayed at the bungalow 12a and it took me 5 minutes to... More

I stayed there about 5 years ago and it was beautiful. The rooms are large with a huge bathroom, lovely balcony and two private beds on the sand overlooking the sea and even a place to lie out of the sun on the beach. I went snorkelling every day, free, with staff and other guests. It was spectacular with the... More
