Wakatobi Dive Resort
In the heart of the planet's most bio-diverse coral reef ecosystem, Wakatobi Dive Resort provides exclusive access to pristine reefs within a privately-funded marine preserve. The resort's waterfront bungalows and villas sit on a white-sand beach overlooking the House Reef, which has been named the world's best shore dive. A fleet of large, custom-built dive launches gives access to more than 40 additional sites, ranging from snorkelerfriendly shallow coral gardens to precipitous walls and dramatic pinnacles that can be enjoyed by novices and advanced divers alike. The dive centre provides a full range of support that includes the option of private dive guides as well as private boats, instruction and full support for photographers. They also cater to extended range and rebreather divers. An attentive staff offers personalized five-star service, and guests enjoy a casually elegant atmosphere that includes fine dining, spa services and a range of additional watersports and land activities. Private direct charter-flights from Bali take guests to the resort in under three hours.
