Wakatobi Dive Resort
Pristine, protected, dramatic and diverse. These are just some of the reasons why Wakatobi is known as Indonesia's premier diving destination. The resort's private marine preserve encompasses some of the best-protected and most pristine coral environments in the Indian Ocean, providing exclusive access to more than 40 unique dive sites. The underwater landscape is diverse, with precipitous walls that rise to within a meter of the surface, dramatic offshore seamounts, critter-rich inshore seagrass beds and colorful shallow reefs that are ideal for both divers and snorkelers. Wakatobi’s marine eco system is one of the most bio-diverse on Earth. With a fleet of large, custom-built dive launches making three daily excursions, divers–and snorkelers–enjoy the freedom of flexible schedules and hour-long bottom times made possible by multi-level profiles on sites that start shallow and run deep. In addition, resort guests enjoy day-and-night access to the House Reef, which has been named one of the world's best shore dives. These daily opportunities are supported by a service-oriented team that handles all details of gear and logistics, along with attentive and experienced guides who are experts at finding rare and interesting wildlife, or providing support for photo and video work. Ashore, guests stay in a collection of upscale bungalows and villas, and enjoy gourmet meals in a luxurious, relaxing oceanfront environment.
