My daughter and I stayed at Lutwala in July. Originally for 3 nights but liked it so much we stayed an extra night. We dove every day and loved the dive staff - professional - concerned about safety and lots of fun. Thanks to our fellow Canadian, Todd who took good care of "mom".

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
