We booked this resort early in 2015. Correspondence by email was with Alfret and Priscilla. Our trip got off to a bad start when the flight was delayed by almost 6 hours. This was after we’ve checked in! Notification by airline was very late and reason - lame. Quick phone-calls were made to the resort to confirm availability of transfers... More

First time ever visiting Sulawesi and decided to stay in Gangga. What a way to set the tone for future visits to Sulawesi as Gangga Resort has set the bar pretty high. I signed up for Tripadvisor just to rave about this place. At first, we decided that this was going to be a relaxing, beachside trip. Once we saw... More

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
