“Great retreat in beautiful setting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

We stayed at Manta dive during Chinese new year and had a great time. Our trip actually got extended by a day when the boat we planned to take back was canceled due to bad weather. We had never scuba dived before and I was more nervous than my husband. Our instructor Thomas was excellent, very calm and explained everything thoroughly. The sites were great and the staff were all very professional. When planning the trip, all of my emails were answered promptly and everything was very clear. Breakfast was AWESOME. Our bungalow was lovely and loved the outdoor shower. Definitely the highlight of our honeymoon, especially with the message written in flowers when we got there!

Stayed here for 4 nights after a cycle trip around Bali. We thoroughly enjoyed the accommodation and atmosphere at Manta, and Rob was a superb instructor for our Advanced course and all the staff were uber friendly and helpful - from booking over the net through to checkout.

Aside from the fantastic dive program and friendly yet professional service, Manta resort sits in front of possibly the best coral reef and snorkelling on the island. This was confirmed when we swam around the entire island one afternoon: nothing came close to the quality of snorkelling out the front of Manta!

We can't wait to come back to Manta Gili Air some day.

Room Tip: Sasak room in front of the pool was great.

We (I, my husband, 5 yo son) stayed at Manta Dive for 3 days. We did some researches before finally chose Manta Dive. And we don't regret our decision. The location is close to the beach, not so secluded and not too crowd, since we are close to public places. We love the outdoor shower, just need to pay attention when there are some people fixing other place's roof. The people, service and breakfast are great.
They have tv but not channel. To entertain my son, we played some film with dvd player (available).
Overall, it's a worth visit and stay place :)

We stayed 8 nights at Manta Dive and we didn't want to leave. Staying in a beautiful sasak bungalow, with hot water, fresh towels and ample breakfasts at whatever time you choose. Manta should be most proud of the wonderful crew of people that they have working with them, office, cafe, dive shop, boatmen and security. Always smiling, always saying "hello, how are you?" it makes a difference when you can feel people are happy to be there. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Thank you all at Manta Dive, Anne Marie and Tom
