Wakatobi Dive Resort
Sulawesi - Indonesia

Welcome to Wakatobi Dive Resort - a destination where you can dive the most pristine reefs in the world, and experience remoteness from everyday life in total comfort. While enjoying a superb diving vacation, you help us ensure that the marine wonders in the area will be around for the future.
Situated on the beautiful tropical island of Onemobaa in the remote and peaceful Wakatobi archipelago in the Banda Sea, Wakatobi Dive Resort offers what may very well be the best reef diving in the world. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff take great care of you and your friends, our chefs create tasty meals, and our bungalows are very comfortable. But, there's more. What makes this resort so unique is the extent to which it envelops the surrounding area into a sustainable marine protected area.

Blessed with a house reef where you can begin your dive only 20m (60 feet) from the resort, our resort is often described as a live aboard with a built-in beach! In addition to the spectacular house reef, there are several dozens of easily accessible dive sites offering incredible marine life diversity, color and natural splendor. With three boat dives / day and unlimited shore diving included in the very comprehensive resort packages, you're ensured total diving freedom!

With miles and miles of pristine, breathtaking drop-offs, walls and slopes to ridges, caverns, caves and seamounts; Wakatobi provides unlimited underwater exploration in the epicenter of marine bio diversity. If you're looking to dive the most pristine reefs on the planet - Wakatobi Dive Resort is your place!

Swiss-founded with an international management team, the resort was carefully constructed with traditional methods for a small number of select guests embracing sound eco tourism principles. The native architectural style of the main building and bungalows was hand crafted by local artisans using traditional, manual tools. Although one of the world's most remote resorts, Wakatobi Dive Resort offers all the usual western amenities; hot and cold fresh water throughout the property, 24-hour electricity, satellite communications, in-room LAN ports with 24 hour internet access, and more. Our team of gourmet chefs create wonderful local and international cuisine.


The traditional architecture of all our buildings has been combined with comforts of the western world's, such as 24hrs reliable electricity (from our own 220 kw power plant) and fresh water from a Reverse Osmosis system (which we have nicknamed "Wakatobi Springs"). All our bungalows will this year have both air-conditioning AND ceiling fans.

The Loungehouse
The main house that in the past contained several guest rooms has been converted to public space. Here you can find our lounge and library space for the enjoyment of all guests. It also houses the dive center (with separate equipment and camera room that offers both 220v and 110v charging stations, fridge for film and more). There is also a rental equipment room, bathrooms, dining area, kitchen, lounge area with marine life reference library, and storage rooms.

The Bungalows
We have three levels of Bungalows. All are of equal floor size. What sets them apart is location and interior equipment / decor standard. All come with a King-size bed as standard but two twin beds are available upon request as an alternative. For families or three friends wanting to share a bungalow (whereby a 5% pp reduction applies) a third bed is also possible. All bungalows are equipped with a sofa, coffee table, wardrobe, minibar with fridge, a bathroom with (of course hot and cold) shower, LAN internet connection, ceiling fan and a spacious balcony as well as private sun chairs and umbrella in front.

The Garden Bungalows
These very comfortable "cabanas" are located slightly behind and in-between the front-row bungalows amidst beautiful palm trees and other tropical plants. Available both on the south and west section of the Resort.

The Beach Bungalows
Front row with an ocean view on the beach facing south. See the fish jump, hear the gentle waves and listen to the birds - all while seated on the balcony or in one of the comfortable lounge chairs in front of your Bungalow. These are the units with the best breeze from the ocean and is an excellent choice for those who prefer to enjoy a holiday in the tropics without the use of air conditioning.

The Premium Beach Bungalows
The Premium Bungalows are of the same construction and size as the Beach Bungalows, but are located on the western beach facing the sunset. A little extra care has gone into their interior and they have small upgrades such as own marine life library, torch for walks at night, in-room orchids and more.

Our "First Class" - The Cliff Villas
Each year we raise the bar and introduce new facilities and services. 2005 will be no different. One of them is a new level of accommodation called The Cliff Villas available from September 2005. Located on the northern end of the Wakatobi Dive Resort beach these Villas will be perched on the cliffs with superb views over the ocean and sunset. They will be far more spacious than our existing Bungalows and equipped for even more luxurious comfort and relaxation. For couples of even families of up to four (one king and double-decker twin) these are the nicest rooms we have.
