We’re back for another 10 days stay and we arrived to a wet Manado. The drive and boat transfer was uneventful. Sunny skies prevailed as we approached the island and were greeted by whole resort staff at the resort’s jetty with a welcome local song & dance. The Resident Manager w

Mein Mann und ich möchten im November 2018 unseren Urlaub im wunderschönen Gangga Resort verbringen. Mein Mann taucht und ich bin leidenschaftlicher Schnorchler. Ist es möglich vom Strand aus direkt mit dem Schnorcheln zu beginnen, oder muss man mit dem Boot rausfahren?? Habe bei Google Earth einen Steg gesehen, ist das noch aktuell? Viele liebe Grüße Gudrun
Hallo. Man kann vom Strand aus schnorcheln. Ist auch sehr schön. Besser sind die schnorchelfahrten morgens und nachmittags für 10 Dollar pro Tag zu unterschiedlichen Spots in der Nähe mit Guide. Echt super. Sehr schöne Korallen . Besser als hausriff. Lihaga nebenan ist super. Schnorcheln insgesamt also super möglich.

se i teli x la spiaggia sono in dotazione se nei bagni ci sono shampoo e bagnoschiuma sono previsti alimenti gluten free
Ciao Antonella, Provo di risponderti. I teli per la spiaggia disponibile in camera poi anche alla piscina. hanno shampoo e bagnoschiuma . per il cibo del glutine free è necessario informare il resort in anticipo. cercano sempre del loro meglio per fornire il necessario da parte del cliente.

"For traveling with family, the resort also has triple room with three separate beds in one room."
"Ask for the recently renovated bungalows"
"Hight number rooms (past 8 or so) are further from the central body and jetty"
"Bungalows 1-5 are close to restaurant, pool, offices, as of nr 6 expect to walk a bit and nr 15, the last one, is about 10-15 minutes walk"
"Every Bungalow is in an awesome and quiet position"
$293 - $475 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
