PADI IDC Dive Resort Oceans 5 Gili Air


Gili Air in Indonesia

The 3 Gili Islands, small paradises, are located east of Bali, reachable in 1 hour and 30 minutes by fast boat.

The 3 islands have different characteristics, but Gili Air is the one which can provide the most enjoyable stay for everyone! 

Of the three Gili Islands just off the coast of Lombok, Gili Air is located closest to Lombok and is known for its tranquil atmosphere.

Gili Air means “Water Island”, which refers to the lush vegetation on the island. White sandy beaches, no motorized transport (the only transport on the island is by horse cart or bike), friendly local villagers, a good variety of restaurants and accommodation ranging from basic homestays to luxury private villas make Gili Air a serene place for a relaxing, yet adventurous holiday.

Diving around the Gili Islands

Our dive resort is situated in the harbor and has access to more than 20 different dive sites around the Gili Islands. Our house reef is located right in front of the dive shop, all the other dive sites are only a short boat ride away. Multilingual instructors can teach you in Dutch, English, German, French, Spanish, Chinese, Finnish, Turkish and Bahasa Indonesia


Studying at home

We provide the opportunity to study at home for your course. This way you safe more time in our tropical paradise without studying under the palm trees. You can do the theoretical part online and now even offline before you arrive in Indonesia. The offline version is a perfect way to spend your study time in the airplane instead of the classroom. Have a look at our eLearing programs.



Our Environment

Every week our dive resort at Gili Air organizes free beach and reef clean ups. Divers as non-divers are helping us to clean the harbor of Gili Air. It is a fantastic way to meet new people while helping us to preserve our beautiful island.

We organize presentations about marine life. Last year Manta Watch, Shark Guardian, Gili Eco Trust, Aquatic Alliance and Mola Research Lembongan gave us a visit.

At last we are a supporter of the Ocean CleanUp project, a fantastic project that hopefully will solve the plastic problem in our oceans.
