Wakatobi Dive Resort
The award-winning Wakatobi Dive Resort is the perfect choice for the dive traveller demanding high standards of quality and appreciating exclusive solitude, tropical surroundings, and the impeccable service of a high-end resort. Transfer to the island is via Bali and takes approximately three hours by private charter plane. The island is located in south-east Sulawesi. It is the only resort for miles around. In former times the journey there required travelling by boat and via several stopovers and was both tiring and time-consuming. Today a private charter flight brings you paradise much closer!
Guests are accommodated in 18 bungalows and villas that are embedded in tropical gardens. The rooms differ in location and features but all of them are spacious and lovingly decorated. The garden bungalows are a little away from the beach and amidst palm trees. The beach bungalows are front row to the beach and offer a great view of the southern beach. Thanks to the nice breeze one may even turn off the air-conditioning. The Select Beach Bungalows are located on the north beach and are equipped with outdoor showers and spacious patios with seating areas – here you can enjoy gorgeous sunsets. The Wakatobi villas are slightly elevated on rocks and boast even more space. The view from their verandas is nothing else but stunning and truly a great experience. All villas are decorated in noble woods and with a passion for detail.
The chef lays special emphasis on healthy dishes and prefers to use fresh local produce. The menu includes both local and international delicacies. Marvel at the creativity and resourcefulness of the chef and the excellent food quality in the open air restaurant. Please notify the personnel in advance if you have any dietary restrictions or prefer low-carb, vegan dishes or if you need to have lactose-free or gluten-free food. Lovestruck couples may enjoy their breakfast in the privacy of their villa. Have a romantic dinner on the beach and sweeten your perfect diving day with dessert under starlit skies.
The bar “The Jetty” is situated on the far end of the landing stage and is truly a unique location to have a drink. The bartenders pamper guests with wonderful drinks and cocktails in a breezy, extraordinary setting. Sunsets offer a spectacular array of colours and you will be fascinated by bright yellows, intense orange and dark purple. Take some time to have a nightcap…or two…or three…
