From start to finish, the most perfect dive holiday I could have ever asked for!! Wakatobi run the smoothest, slickest operation I've ever encountered!! I'm a dive professional myself, working in the industry as a dive instructor, and to date no dive shop, centre, boat or resort has come close to the luxury and personal attention provided by the Wakatobi...

A smiling happy Stijn from the Wakatobi team met us & arranged transport to our hotel and briefed us on our visit to the island, when we returned on the Monday he took over all arrangements and the next time we saw...

Wakatobi has been at the top of my bucket list sine I first was introduced to it at the Long Beach CA Dive Show 7 years ago. To my delight, I convinced my husband and two friends who also dive to spend 10 days there last month. It met my extremely high expectations in EVERY way! The attention to detail...

We recently made our second trip to Wakatobi and loved it as much as we did the first time. Our first trip was 10 years ago and the resort is as lovely as it was then. The accommodations are very comfortable and relaxing. The food is delicious, plentiful and there is a good variety of options at every meal. I...

We stayed in Wakatobi Dive Resort for the New Year celebration.... The trip and transit arrangements made by the team (in Bali and Wakatobi) made the whole trip such a memorable experience... Just to be safe, we opted to stay a day in Bali, before the following early morning flight to Wakatobi. The Resort is located in opposite island of...

I have been to Indonesia six times and this was my second visit to Wakatobi. Little has changed since my first visit in 2013 and that is a good thing. The service is excellent and the diving is well managed. The large staff is anxious to please and will offer just about any service to make your stay a good...

This was our most expensive holiday ever even without taking into account the first time long haul business class air fares! We are primarily snorkelers so this was how I found Wakatobi from "10 best" lists - I had previously always said that we were "Maldives spoiled" for beautiful reefs but Wakatobi certainly excelled. We had great customer service from...

This was our 5th visit to Wakatobi and we have already book our 6th trip. We found every aspect of our visit (diving, dive guides, food, people, accommodation, etc.) well above our very high expectations. We celebrated our 600th dive during our trip and we have experienced many, many other dive operations. We can say with complete certainty that Wakatobi...
