We did our Open Water Badge with Sylvain and it was honestly the most amazing experience ever! The under water conditions were perfect, and these guys really know what they’re doing & know all there is to know about the dive sites. In fact, we’re already making plans to go back to Gili Air and do our Advanced Open Water... More

Now, I can't compare with other dive centers on Gili Air - but I can compare with other dive centers around SEA. The staff at Manta Dive was friendly in general. What I didn't like was that the equipment was fairly worn - such as hoses, regulators and (some of) the BCDs. For example the air pressure gauge were sometimes... More

Nice bungalows and facilities, lovely and helpfull people and amazing diving! Dani was my diving instructor and I didn't feel unsafe or unsure at any time. Good communication and instructions. The food at the breakfast restaurant could be better or faster though. We waited a lot to receive our food after ordering, which wasn't good when we needed to go... More

We stayed at the Manta Dive Resort on Gili Air for the last leg of our Bali honeymoon. We are Open Water Divers with a few under our belt but we hadn't dived in over a year so we were looking for somewhere relaxed and fairly easy to get back into diving, that was also a nice accommodation to stay...

Patient and has a passion for scuba and the amazing encounters while under the sea. We decided to start diving towards our advanced open water cert and Therry was super knowledgable and excited! She got us... More

We've just returned to Australia and a chilly 4 degrees after spending a glorious winter escape at Manta Dive completing the Open Water certificate and just having a wonderful time. We stayed in one of the sasak bungalows located on the premises located 50m from the beautiful waters edge overlooking Mt Rinjani. Manta is 5 minutes away from the harbour... More

Manta Dive is located a 10 minute walk from the jetty, so it is away from the busy 'centre', but still surrounded by restaurants, bars and other accommodation. It has a small pool, which is cool mostly as it is shaded by trees. There is always a lot of activity going on, as the dive centre at the front teaches... More

Diving on the island can be relatively expensive to someplace on Bali. We booked 2 pax for a discover diving experience. The first half of the day was basics in the pool, somehow my wife who isn't that used to water sports couldn't really keep up the pace with the rest of the group. we went through the instructions in...

We absolutely loved Gili Air and had a great stay at Manta Dive. The location is great - a short walk from the harbor, and the beach has a great view of Rinjani. Bed was very comfortable and the staff was very helpful. There is great snorkeling right off the beach. No complaints!

This is a fine place, clean. Nice bed, helpful european staff. Very basic. Reviews are a bit overrated i think. Yes it is clean and nice, no comments on that. But we came from a stay at scallywags which has tv, robes, roomservice, design, breakfast buffet. So For a few pennies more i would choose them over manta. Unless you... More
