Manta Dive Gili Trawangan Resort


Manta Dive on Gili Trawangan is one of the longest running dive schools on the Gili Islands. During the last year, they have added additional facilities and upgraded their current location into a spectacular new resort. Proudly presenting 12 new Pool View Bungalows, a super-cool rooftop café and a stunning 20m swimming pool dedicated to accommodation guests only.

Located on the east side of Gili Trawangan, close to the harbour, Manta Dive offers a great combination of a beachfront dive school, as well as secluded accommodation. It truly is one of the ideal places to dive and relax, whilst still being in the centre of the action.


Their International team of highly experienced Instructors caters for all levels, from absolute beginner to instructor level. The diving is year-round and the fringing coral reefs that surround the Gili Islands support a phenomenal array of marine life that will captivate scuba divers of all levels. Manta Dive is the only SSI Diamond Rated Dive Center and Instructor Training Facility in the region.


Guests now have a choice of three room types, set in lush tropical gardens surround- ing the centrally located pool, perfect for sunbathing and relaxing. The rooms come with all of the modern day necessities; AC, Satellite TV, semi-outdoor bathrooms with hot, fresh water showers and WiFi. Their new Pool View Bungalows have a king sized double bed, as well as a day bed for lounging which can be converted into a single bed for a third guest. A great place for couples, friends or families alike. Their hugely popular Lumbung Bungalows (now also pool view) or their slightly cheaper Garden View Rooms are still available for reservation.

Café & Bar

The popular Manta Café is open for breakfast and lunch, serving fresh juices, smoothies, salads, baguettes and home-made cakes. Lounge in a bean bag on their beachfront deck or in the café’s new rooftop terrace. Ice cold beers always!■
