“Relaxed and fresh place to stay!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Nice and reliable place on the beach with amazing view over the sea. Bungalows are big and there are enough place for your luggage, nice and clean place. The staff is helpful and make you feel cosy. The main point of our trip was to go diving for the first time, and this is definitely the best place for doing that! For two days we studied and dived with our great diving instructor Nic who made the whole experience even more relaxed, safe and enjoyable. Instructors english was very clear and very easy to understand to us who don't speak english at home. He was nice to tell us what exciting marine life we were about to encounter so it was great to know and understand the creatures we saw. It was safe to leave your stuff by the reception while diving and you didn't have to worry about them. Overall, great place and great experiences!

We stayed there for 3 nights and dive with them. Jess the dive master, was really great and knowledgable about all sea creatures living down under. We enjoyed every dive we had and we will go back there again next time.

We stayed at Manta Dive Gili Air for nearly three weeks in Jan 2014, in both the traditional bungalow and garden room. Rob, the manager, is awesome and always willing to help out with any info you need (along with the rest of the staff). Both rooms were a really great value with a huge, comfy bed. The outdoor bathrooms were nice with salt water showers. No TV's in the rooms but you don't really need them when you are on Gili Air. Wifi worked better than I expected. Location is perfect, close to several good bars and restaurants and pretty close to the harbor. Breakfast at the Waterfront restaurant is included with the room and had a great selection to choose from. Also, if you stay at Manta then you get 10% off any diving that you do! I hope to visit again sometime and I'll definitely stay at Manta!

We recently stayed at the Manta Dive resort on a 3 night/4 day trip from Bali and have loved our stay. We originally called and booked over the phone a day before arriving, there was a slight confusion over our room when we arrived but it was quickly resolved and we got money off our stay. We stayed one night in the garden room which was really nice and the cheaper alternative, slight issue with hot water there but I think this was resolved. We then stayed in the waterfront room for our last 2 nights, these rooms have a tv and a lovely open top shower with plenty of hot water! I should point out that these rooms do not face the water though regardless of their name they are just a more luxurious accommodation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the staff are very friendly and you get 10% off the restaurant which serves AMAZING food and very cheap! Thanks all!!

Nice bungalow. One thing we weren't prepared for was that there was salt water in the showers. Worked ok, and it's understandable since they have to import the fresh water. Still, it would have been nice to know beforehand. Great service at the breakfast place - Waterfront. Especially from our favourite waitress Ani.

Spent a week diving with Manta. Stayed as a couple in one of the simple but great bungalows. We took the stress & rescue course with Anna (she's a great instructor!) and did some fun dives. The staff did a great job trying to get the best out of all the dives, especially considering the conditions that change swiftly during wet season, and we were really satisfied. In total, it was an amazing experience and we hope to go back soon!
