Gangga is the first of the Sangihe Islands that lie between Sulawesi and the Philippines. Of volcanic origin and covered with rainforest, it is surrounded by coral reefs and white beaches.
The Gangga Island Resort is perfectly situated. With its more than 25 world-class diving locations, the waters around the island offer a wonderful variety of marine life. The island is the home of the Bajau fishermen who colonized the coast and some of the surrounding islands in the distant past. These friendly people live in two villages called Gangga Satu and Gangga Dua. They continue to live in the simple way of their traditional culture, in close relationship with the sea which provides support for their daily lives.
Located east of Borneo is the equatorial paradise of Sulawesi. Largely unknown to the outside world, this special island offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience mystical highland beauty and dive into some of the finest Indo-Pacific waters in a region that still is relatively untouched by major tourism. The friendliness and warmth of the local Minahasan people will make your visit to Sulawesi one to remember for many years to come.
Tondano, the capital of the Minahasa district, a town near Lake Tondano, is renowned for its remnant of an active volcano, Mount Lokon. It is situated on a plateau approximately 700 meters above sea level, surrounded by a magnificent country view with cool mountain air. The local Minahasa people believe that they are descendants of Toar and Lumimuut, two legendary divinities of Minahasa mythology.
Built under shady palms and surrounded by tropical gardens running directly down to a beach of pure white sand, the Gangga Island Resort is located on the tip of the small island of Gangga. With the highest international standards of service and comfort, the Gangga Island Resort is the perfect place for travelers, honeymooners, and diving enthusiasts. The resort is only 45 minutes by car from Manado International Airport, then half an hour by traditional Minahasan boat.
The Resort features wooden two-room bungalows and built in the local Minahasa style, with a spacious veranda overlooking the beach and neighboring islands. All rooms are equipped with every amenity expected of a first class resort.
