We dives in more than 7 schools through southeast Asia and there is no comparison to Buddha. All the instructors there are great as instructors, but most importantly great persons. We created an amazing bond with them and we will do everything to come back next year.

Did a refresher and 3 fun dives and it was great. Diving instructors give you the best experience possible. Small groups and very individual guidance. Ask for Pedro, he is great and will teach you a lot. When diving the instructors make it their mission to show you as many animals as possible. Will definitely come back.

I completed my open water with Buddha dive. Best place, with awesome instructors! So much better than the bigger ones on Gili T!

I took one diving trip with Buddha Dive during my visit in Gili and I loved it! The instructors are really friendly, most of them spoke English but the one who briefed us was pretty fluent in Bahasa. We have never dived before so we were required to join a short 1-hour course in the pool. The instructors were pretty... More

Sure, snorkelling is quite good on the Gili islands but scuba diving was the most amazing experience of my entire trip to Indonesia & I'm so glad I did it with Buddha Dive! I had never scuba dived before and the sign out the front said I could do a quick intro course and be in the water within two... More

We were a group of 3 people and our dive master (sorry forgot the name) but I guess starting with N, was great. We felt always in good hands and the equipment was good as well. We definitely can recommend Buddha dive school.

We had a diving lesson with Theresa (the blonde Swedish girl) and it was just awesome. I was worried in the beginning but she trained every skill until we felt save doing it. The underwater world you see in gili is just great!!

Well, it was the second time for me to stay in there. Therese the diving coach was really awesome! But; the water run off when I was staying there; which is really annoying. But; it's fine... I still in love with this hotel. Quite near from the crowd and really cool swimming pool:)))
