A place where warm, clear water covers pristine reefs teeming with abundant and diverse marine life; where seas are calm, with little more than a ripple, and dive sites are just a stone’s throw from luxurious accommodation and delicious meals. And, of course, it’s all within magnificent natural surroundings that both inspire and relax the soul. This award-winning luxury eco dive resort in Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia is where you can enjoy a level of service, remoteness and tranquility rarely found anywhere else on the planet. Home of the world's most pristine reefs, Wakatobi offers what many claim to be the "best diving in the world."
There are 3 levels of accommodation types:
The Wakatobi Villas – for those seeking the best, perched on small ledge just above the beach, the Villas offer unobstructed views over the ocean and sunset, even from the bathrooms.
Ocean Bungalows – located directly on the beach with stunning views over the ocean.
Palm Bungalows - located slightly behind and in-between the front-row Select Bungalows amidst beautiful palm trees and other tropical plants.
Nowhere else do you have such an ease of access to miles and miles of pristine reefs with diverse topography, life and highlights - in other locations you collect the good dive sites together over large areas with long and arduous boat journeys in between and might not even get close to what Wakatobi offers out there right at the doorstep.
The house reef is world-famous. Some guests never go on a boat dive because the reef and wall right in front of the resort provides enough territory and diversity to keep them exploring for several days. There is no need to swim long distances. They even offer "taxi-boat" services to transport you to extended parts of the house reef.
Biodiversity is a measure of the variety of species that can be found in an ecosystem. Wakatobi is located in an area that encompasses the highest coral reef biodiversity in the world.
What does that mean for the average diver?
It simply means that at Wakatobi you will have the greatest opportunity to see the greatest variety and diversity of marine life. While diving at Wakatobi, you'll not only see beautiful vistas or pristine coral reefs, but also abundant colourful reef fish and rare and unusual cryptic "critters".
