7 of us stayed in these bungalows and all had the most fantastic time. The bungalows are gorgeous, spacious and fully functional (good a/c, safe, comfortable bed) and have the nicest outside bathrooms attached to them. Pool is ok but predominantly for divers... You can still paddle and chill in most areas though. You're right by the port so easy... More

Plus points - rooms and facilities are on the upper side of good. flat screen with multi channels and huge sleep quality beds. Ambience is good. Service is good, nice mannered people managed the property. Very clean and punctual housekeeping and the mini bar is of reasonable pricing and not overpriced like other properties. Booking of these bungalows are eaSY,... More

Lovely bungalows in a very pleasant setting. Chose to stay in the bungalow furthest away from any noise. Close to all the action of course and if you are a diver then this is the place to stay. Water and boat is not far at all. Restaurant serves excellent breakfast and included if you stay. Reasonable prices for all snacks.... More

Wow, these bungalows are incredible, they are super clean, have great Aircon, huge beds, awesome outdoor shower, I honestly would find it hard to fault the bungalows. However, the noise pollution at night from the surrounding bars is almost too much to handle. This is literally the only drawback of the place. If you stay here request a back room.... More

I did my advanced diving certificate at Manta dive and stayed there 5 days, which were the most relaxing days of my life! Manta Dive resort is really geared towards the diving community, with the bungalows fitted to dry your equipment out front, and the open showers round the back are perfect to wash off the sand and salt upon...

We spent 2 nights at Manta bungalows (although were not diving) and would recommend if you are looking to stay somewhere of good value in the heart of the nightlife on Gili T. The lovely Sasak style bungalows are clean and comfortable and showering in outdoor bathroom was a rare experience! The pool does seems to be used primarily for... More

I booked this hotel using an online booking site based off the photos. I should have known better and did more research. First, they pre-charged my credit card for my stay (making it nearly impossible to get a refund). After the weather turned and all the boats were cancelled for the day (with the exception of the 8:30 AM boat),... More

We stayed at the Manta Dive on Gili Trawangan. The rooms here are beautiful, we loved it. They are quite traditional hut style with a outside bathroom. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was a nice selection. The location was great as it wasn't far from the ferry and easy to find. During our stay we looked into... More

Nice accommodation and friendly staff. The room was great and if you are after GTs nightlife you will be perfectly located. Only downside was it was a bit noisy but that comes from its location - would have stayed here longer if there was availability.

We stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed the bungalows. They are well located, both in terms of being close to where the fast boats drop you off and centrally within the main 'strip'. The rooms are large enough, the air con was hard core (although a little hard to control), which you can need on Gili, and you... More
