I was there for one week to go scuba diving. The hotel has beautiful bungalows built out of wood. Drinking water is provided. The dive center tries to make all trips possible and is very flexible. Getting to the hotel from the airport takes about 1.5 hrs. Everything was well organized and the fisherman brought me to the island in... More

it is always risky to go back to a place you liked. It could have gotten much better in your memory after all and be a disappointment once back. Not so Gangga Island Resort and Spa in Indonesia.

The bungalows are very comfortable and clean and all the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Each bungalow has their own sunbeds and a shaded platform at the beach. For lunch and dinner you can choose from a daily changing short menu and it was always excellent and plentiful. The diving was great and the guides know their work......

I spent three nights at Gangga Island Resort & Spa May 16-19. Main purpose of my trip was diving. I stayed in bungalow 10-B, which is a 250 to 300 meter walk from the resort's main building (open air with fans) which has reception area and restaurant. It's a hike, and at night it's easy to get a bit lost... More

Upon your arrival on the island, our staff will welcome and assist you to settle down in one of the fifteen wooden bungalows built on stilts with high ceilings and a spacious veranda overlooking the beach.
