Comments We just returned from an amazing trip to Lotus Bungalows resort and Gangga divers. The resort is run by Henrietta and the dive operation is run by her husband Jan but they both do it all. We were treated like Royalty at the resort. Our every need was met. Our rooms were lovely, the pool and views were wonderful and the food was great. The staff was amazing! They were always smiling and happy to help you! We loved the BIG couch by the pool and relaxed there every day!
Henri met us at the airport and made sure all was well before we got on our way to the resort! Henri and Jan add a personl touch that we have not found at many resorts! They make you feel REALLY welcome! Everything is run like clockwork! The dive operation is amazing! There is excellent attention to every detail. They have that dive operation down to a science! Our equipment was well taken care of and cleaned better than we do it. The boats were spotless and the dive operation precise! Everything was so well run and we were all quite impressed! Our dive boat had Nikko and Jan as dive masters and we were all PLEASED!!! Jan prints up your dive profile at the end on a really cool dive map ! What a great idea! EVERY worker on our boat worked their tails off!!
We saw 6 BIG fish !!! Can you say Mola Mola? I can not say enough good about Lotus Bungalows and Gangga divers! GO THERE and see for yourself!!!!
