Gangga Island Resort and Gangga Divers are a real treat. I have stayed there 3 times now and I look forward to my next stay. The cottages are wonderfully appointed, clean and the bathrooms are spectacular. The food is great in the Restaurant. The staff always has a smile on their face and are willing to give that little extra...

There are many wonderful things about this resort - dive program, rooms, pool, spa, grounds, but I have to say the best of all was the service, which was just incredible. We were celebrating our 15-year anniversary and they arranged a special dinner on the beach for just the two of us complete with live music and prepared a special...

Once in a while you come across a resort that delivers on all counts and when that happens you experience the unforgettable joy of a perfect holiday. The Gangga Island Resort is one such place. We were there primarily for scuba diving, which was very good. The dive crew are experienced and outstanding. Safety, briefing, instructions, facilities everything is top...

The location, service, food and diving are great! The food, both Indonesian and European fare, are of very high standard and we had difficulties deciding what to eat! The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Everything was working which is a miracle considering that the resort is on a relatively small island. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The...

Wow, wow and wow, respectively the staff, the resort and the diving. I work in the diving and hospitality business, we have our own accommodation and dive base, and Gangaa has shown me that we have so much more work to do. The staff are plenty and always smiling, to be honest I have never had someone fill my water...

This is a true four star resort on a tiny island in the middle of some great diving. You have numerous dive sites within 10 minutes of the resort and can also get to Banaken and Lembeh with a 60 minute boat ride. The Diving is superb. The food, service, beach, accomidations and staff were all great. Would return again.

Beautiful resort, spacious, nice bungalows, excellent food, staff is knowledgable and helpful, beach is fabulous. Diving is great with helpful guides, boats are comfortable, dives are relatively shallow. Nice air-conditioned room to keep camera equipment in between dives, personal dive gear is well maintained by staff during visit. Great place to see many small marine creatures.

We were met and transported, first class, from the airport to ferry to Gangga resort. Buy water at airport for the over one hour drive.

“Room 9A was fabulous and one of the closest to the beach front (although all area max 50 steps so this is not a big deal). Lower room numbers are closer to amenities and in hindsight this would have been helpful. Forgot something before diving and had to run back to the room could take >10 mins round trip!”

“All on the beach front are the best, the lower the number the closer to the restaurant you are but even the last ones are only a five minute walk to reception, bar and restaurant”
