Sulawesi Dive Resort

 

Sulawesi is a luxury dive resort in Indonesia’s Southeastern part. The dive resort is located on a peaceful island far from crowds and cities, and most importantly, with no other divers for at least 100 miles. The resort seamlessly blends five-star amenities and comforts with a pristine natural scene; a pairing that has ensured its reputation as one of the world’s most beautiful resorts.

 

Sulawesi dive resort is an exclusive diving resort, with only 4 Villas, 15 Ocean Bungalows, and 9 Palm Bungalows. Accommodation is within an easy walking of the beach and all the amenities of the dive resort.

 

A dive experience that will fascinate and will be remembered. Sulawesi was created with the vision, keeping in mind geography, climate, oceanic topography and marine biodiversity. The ultimate dive experience that resulted from an extensive search to identify the perfect location, which now is one of world’s largest privately protected marine reserves. That gives you an idea of our total attention to details, which reflects in every aspect of the Sulawesi experience.

 

Imagine sitting at Sulawesi’s Jetty Bar with your favorite drink, sharing the highlights and experiences of a day diving or snorkeling. Add a jaw-dropping sunset through to the stars and the milky way lighting up the tropical night sky – does life get much better than this?

THE ACTIVITIES

LUXURY DIVING

 

A dive experience that will fascinate and will be remembered. Sulawesi was created with the vision, keeping in mind geography, climate, oceanic topography and marine biodiversity. The ultimate dive experience that resulted from an extensive search to identify the perfect location, which now is one of world’s largest privately protected marine reserves. That gives you an idea of our total attention to details, which reflects in every aspect of the Sulawesi experience.

Having identified the premier location, we developed a dive resort that, regardless of its remote position, offers stunning facilities and comfort to make a dive trip, and all that surrounds it, an experience that you will cherish.

 

MARINE LIFE

Sulawesi island is located at the world’s epicenter of coral reef biodiversity. The greatest variety and diversity of marine life every time you dive. New and unregistered species continue to be discovered at Sulawesi.

 

Unlimited diving on pristine, protected coral reefs it’s all at your doorstep. Nowhere else do you have such an easy to access to miles of pristine reefs with diverse topography, life, and highlights. In other locations, you collect the good dive sites together over large areas with perhaps long and arduous boat journeys in between and might not even get close to what Sulawesi offers out there right at the doorstep.

SNORKELING

Sulawesi is a snorkeler’s paradise as well.

Sulawesi is an excellent place for snorkelers and freedivers. The house reef offers a convenient and beautiful snorkeling spot, which offers views of myriad marine beings and a lot of dive sites hold exquisite shallows on the coral tops.

If you feel a desire to go deeper, you can take a Scuba diving course at our dive resort to become certified (PADI) as an open water diver. The course only takes four days and will allow you to open new vistas on the underwater world.
