Sebuah tempat yang terpesona, setelah melakukan perjalanan petualangan kita di suatu tempat dengan pasir putih, surga antara dua desa di Gangga Gangga Satu dan Dua baik didedikasikan untuk desa-desa nelayan di pantai.

We were there specifically to take underwater photographs but to do so from such a super location was a real treat. Completely isolated from the usual tourist trail, it was a perfect haven with excellent facilities for the underwater photographer. They have a number of ongoing environmental projects with tutles and reef protection which they are pleased to show you.... More

overall we had a lovely stay at Gangga Island. the island itself is beautiful - sandy white beaches with clear blue seas. the accommodation is also lovely and well looked after. BUT we felt the staff need more training, and the island itself needs managing better. given that the resort only had 30 bungalows, we expected to meet the manager... More

Trip was actually 2009. I cannot disagree more with Tante -Rini from Nuernberg. We enjoyed our trip SO much that we are returning in a few weeks time. Perhaps she should have read the information first if she expected local cuisine only. The rooms were axactly as you would expect with aircon but you have to accept that the generator... More

I read so many good reviews about this place - and was ready for my dream vacation. Beeing really tired and overworked, I thought spending 200 US/night was worth it, to have perfect service and a dream environment.j I wonder if people are really honest with themselves writing reviews. Maybe the idea of having waisted a lot of money and... More

I have been to the Gangga Island Resort 3 times. It is simply splendid. The diving off Banka Island, Thalise and Gangga is superb. This place is truly amazing. True the visibility does change but the marine life equals Lembeh Island. When its green you go macro or take a short boat ride to Bunaken. (Lembeh is also close by).... More

Who could write a negative review about this place?? Gangga Resort is a gem. The facilities, location, food, staff - everything is perfect. The surrounding areas provide perfect snorkelling with colourful corals and varied sea life. Couldn't ask for more. Go to Gangga!

I have just come back from Gangga, where I spent part of my honeymoon. Let me say that I am not the kind of person that falls easily in love with "this kind" of places: I am no diver, I had never practiced snorkeling, and usually I feel that too much time spent relaxing and sunbathing is a loss!
