We experienced that Lutwala is a Dive center that is well managed and offers friendly service - feels like diving with friends. Goods briefings and roll-calls, good and well functioning rental equipment, comfortable boats, small groups per dive master, on time. Very good experience and would advise Lutwala to every diver.

Where to begin my review...I simply loved everything here! The bungalows were simple but really comfy, cleaned every day and everything was working properly (Wifi, AC, hot water, etc...). I came here with my husband to dive and only dive and I was very well served. We stayed 6 days and we were able to dive/know 3 dives masters. Sergio,... More

Lutwala Dive was an awesome place to dive from. Customer service was awesome, equipment was nice and in good condition. Instructors were great! Very inviting and friendly atmosphere, made me feel very safe while diving and out on the boat. Instructions are always clear and easy to understand. Quinn was a great dive instructor!

I did a day's diving here with my wife in May 2016. The dive centre has a very impressive set up - a substantial building with a number of pools at the front. The equipment we used was in good condition. The boats leave from the beach opposite the dive centre which is convenient. We had two different dive masters... More

This was my first dive course and I obtained my padi open water thanks to the very skilful help if lutwala. I had a dedicated teacher and everything was extremely professional. Very good material, English speaking international diving teachers and great atmosphere. Highly recommendable. Special thanks to Quinn and Jack!

I will preface this with I would give this dive shop an easy four if not five, but for one instructor. Also just about any dive shop should get at least a four because the beauty of the Gili's dive sites. But Lutwala gets a two for employing this one insufferable instructor. I went diving with Joe once- awesome. Personable... More

What an amazing dive resort, situated at the opposite side of the island to all of the hustle and bustle. Perfect if you want to dive with a name and not just be another number amongst the masses. They had the best pool facilities I've seen on the whole island with a deep water pool to complete training without having... More

My boyfriend and I did about 5 dives each here and, our fault, we didn't reserve anything in advance. Lutwala gracefully received us and found a way to fit us into all the dives we wanted. You can tell the run a right ship among the instructors, but the place comes off as relaxed. We really enjoyed their new instructor,... More
