Booked this with the idea of my wife and daughter still having something to do while my son and I went diving, booked the family room which consisted of connecting rooms both with queen beds, which was OK on this occasion, but problematic as the kids get older and don't want to share a bed. Water is warm not really... More

We stayed for 7 nights in the manta dive hotel, and whilst there I completed my open water diving qualification and my friend did a refresher and fun dives. the hotel is beautiful, and the breakfast at waterfront restaurant looking out over the sea is magical. Mantra has an amazing family feel about it and the staff made sure they... More

We stayed at the Beach Club Hotel as all of the rooms were full when we were planning to be in Gili Air. Everyone here from the beginning (when we enquired about accommodation and diving) was very helpful and warm - although initially they were hard to get in touch with on the phone, Stephie did get back to our...

Spent 3 days with manta dive center. Beautiful dive sites and lovely view of mount rinjani. Had great dives with Opik and Tobi. They are fun, cute and experienced divemasters :) I'll definitely come back for them!!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Manta Dive during 4 nights and loved it. The rooms are perfectly clean (The cleanest room we saw in 1 month in Indonesia...no cockroaches ;)) and the service is good. It is well located in front of a nice beach where snorkeling is just tremendous. The restaurant "The waterfront" offers 10% reduction when you... More

We just left perfect Gili Air and even more perfect Manta/ Waterfront bungalow. They took care of every detail with help arranging our fastboat transfers from Ubud and Sanur, with scuba refresher course, thanks Emma!, and just creating the best chill out place on the island for our family of 4. The cafe was delicious and our 3 year old... More

First, I feel like I spoiled myself a little bit on getting the SSI Open Water certification here because I'm not sure anything else will live up to the Gili Manta Dive experience. Diving in the Gilis seems almost unparalleled; the conditions were always perfect, the water was gorgeous and I could not have imagined all of the aquatic life... More

We enjoyed our stay and our dives. They where so professional and organized. Equipment was maintained. I can highly recommend that place as well as Lucy. She is fluent in German, English and French and was the perfect guide for us.

Stayed here and completed our open water diving course. Rooms- spacious, clean. Aircon efficient and quiet. Breakfast- available at Waterfront hotel next door on the beach. Good variety and reasonable portions. No swimming pool (except for the saltwater pool full of divers) however you can use the Waterfront's pool. Only 6 sun beds round the pool but as everyone is...
