A King Size bed provides relaxing and restful sleep.

The roomy bathroom is contemporary with decor and equipment, featuring a rainforest shower and vanity fittings.

DELUX CABIN

Perfect accommodation for a couple or dive buddies looking for their private space. The cabin features two beds; one wide enough for two people, the other comfortably accommodate one person. Ample cupboards and a small loveseat provide a place to sit, read, and maintain your diving log. The cabin also has a spacious bathroom with a shower and a toilet. Air-conditioned with private controls.

SUPERLUX CABIN

The Superlux cabins offer bright spa-like environments for guests. From the large floor plan to the wall art and the tiniest decor details, the cabins evoke a feeling of tranquility and restfulness. Both cabins feature a walk-around, queen-size bed and a separate day bed/generously proportioned extra bed.

 

Conviniently hanging bedside tables as well as floor-to-ceiling wardrobes, not forget to mention large drawers under the beds. All of these offer guests ample space to store personal belongings. Adjustable reading lights hang from the headboards for comfortable night-time reading. Beautiful bathrooms feature a glass shower area, a significant vanity with spa-like fixtures and nice lighting. Of course, the cabins are air-conditioned with private controls.

ESSENTIALS CABIN

Diving punctuated with chef-prepared specialties

Every day’s culinary experince begins with breakfast, prepared to your order and usually served on the aft deck. When you go back to the boat charter for a break in between  a couple of dives, a welcoming selection of hot drinks and the chef’s freshly prepared snacks will be awaiting you. Our experienced chef creates à la carte menus for lunch and dinner; a tasty selection of Indonesian specialties along with Western favorites. A fine wine selection and spirits are available as well as soft drinks and juices.

THE ACTIVITIES

Luxury Diving

 

A dive experience that will fascinate and will be remembered. Wakatobi 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 Wakatobi 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 Wakatobi offers out there right at the doorstep.

 

Luxury Dive Charter

 

The Wakatobi dive charter’s two custom-made 18ft rigid hull inflatable dive tenders are equipped with double 50HP four-stroke outboard engines, secure stainless steel ladders, and tank racks. These tenders are comfortable and easy to enter and exit.

 

Diving is always carried out from the tenders as they let us transport divers directly to the dive sites more precisely than would be possible from the main charter boat. Tanks are quickly filled using whips from the main dive charter thus there’s no need to take the dive gear off the tenders until the very end of the cruise. Our helpful, camera-aware crew is always ready to lend a hand.

 

ITINERARY

A varied itinerary of bays, walls, and critters

 

Wakatobi Dive Charter’s sorties will show you a different kind of diving to that seen at the resort. If you’ve dived sites around Wakatobi Dive Resort before, you would definitely want to expand your dive adventures to the reef systems beyond the island of Tomia.
