I booked Manta dive directly via e-mail, I had a few questions before booking regarding the pricing of dives and the accommodation, all my e-mails were answered quickly and informatively. As those of you who dive know trust is most important when selecting a dive centre and the e-mails from Alex filled me with a huge sense of security. On... More

This is a wonderful dive shop and hotel! The grounds are lovely, the rooms are excellent value (the 2 person cottages are very nicely appointed and the family rooms have all the necessary facilities) and the diving is completely outstanding! However, what makes this place very special is the atmosphere amongst the dive crew which is mixed European and Indonesian.... More

Very clean, fantastic value for money at 750rp per night. The villas were basic, but had everything you need, and most importantly fresh water showers on a salt-water only island! The breakfast was great value and the staff very helpful, they will also help organise your fast boat from Bali.

We spent 5 nights at Manta Dive and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We had connecting rooms as we are a family of 4 (kids aged 9 and 12), rooms were very clean, bright and spacious - really great value. This is one of the main dive centres on Gili Air and is a hive of... More

We spent 6 nights in Manta and just loved it so much ! The island itself is so pretty , it really looked like paradise from the water and it sure was. The bungalow was amazing value and we loved the beautiful outside bathroom and the huge comfy bed. Breakfast was probably the best of our trip , beautiful fresh... More

We stayed with the Manta Dive team recently for five nights - the villas were large, with huge comfortable bed, air con and private balcony. We especially loved the shower under the stars and spacious bathroom. The rooms were cleaned each day and we enjoyed a large tasty breakfast overlooking the water every morning. Even better then the gorgeous villa... More

Stayed here for six nights. Enjoyed every single minute on Gili Air! Stayed at one of their sasak bungalows direct at the pool with view of the beach. Loved their open air bath and the bungalow had everything we needed. It is not very large but we were totally fine with the size. We did three dives and enjoyed them... More

I’m writing this hotel review a bit late as real life and work take over once you get home. My husband and I spent 3 nights in the family rooms with our two children, January 2011. We would usually go for a very simple grass hut type of affair, but at the time of travel dengue fever was rife throughout... More

I did my refresher and Advanced Diving Certificate with Manta and had sessions with all 3 instructors. Unfortunately I had Richard for my advanced certification. He was by far the worst instructor. He didn't check to see that my equipment was fine. I found out that my BCD was leaking on my first dive. He wanders off on the dive... More

Thank you for your review. I am glad that you enjoyed diving with Pia and Johan, in fact i even remember you coming back from one of your dives and saying how it was the best dive you had ever done, thank you.

Compared to the accomodations i have seen on gili air, this is one of the better options! Clean, spacious rooms, open air bathroom, efficient staff, nice gardens, though the swimming pool area is a bit small as well as the rooms are close together. IF you want to stay in real bungalows with enough landscape around better stay somewhere else.... More
