Indonesia has over 16,000 islands; come and experience one of the most beautiful of them. If you've been dreaming of white sand beaches and clear blue water, look no further - you've found it - Welcome to Villa Almarik.
Villa Almarik is on the island of Gili Trawangan, near Lombok, Indonesia. Originally home only to a handful of fisherman, it is surrounded by underwater coral gardens and covered in tropical blooms and trees. Whether you're looking to dive some of the best sites in Indonesia, snorkel, explore or simply relax in sun, Villa Almarik is the place for you. We will feed you the best of local and international cuisine, show you the best parts of the island both on land and under the sea, spoil you with massages and make sure you have everything you want and need.
No cars or motors are allowed on the island. The hardest decision you'll have to make while you're here is whether to walk, cycle or take a horse-drawn carriage down the island's sandy roads. Villa Almarik is only a short distance from an area alive with bars and restaurants where you can dance the night away or just enjoy the beautiful view of the mountains and sea as the sun sets and the skies light up with stars.
Gangga Divers have joined in partnership with Trawangan Dive, a PADI 5 star Gold Palm diving center located here on Gili Trawangan. Diving at Trawangan Dive, we guarantee that the quality of personalized service and attention to safety at our new resort will reflect the high standard that you have come to expect from Gangga Divers and according to the highest PADI standards.

Its very possible to make 2 or dives and still have plenty of time in your day for relaxing on the island's white sandy beaches.
There are over 3,500 marine species living in the reefs and seas of Indonesia. In comparison to the Great Barrier Reef (1,500 species) and Red Sea (600 species), 25 % of all reefs in the world are in Indonesia. The many drop-offs, plateaus and slopes around the Gili's reflect a good cross-section of what Indonesia has to offer. Dive in and be fascinated by a variety of turtles, White-tip Reef Sharks, Cuttlefish, Moray Eels, Angel Fish, Ghost Pipefish, Snappers, Mantas, Eagle rays and more.
