We recently returned from our 3rd trip to Wakatobi Dive Resort. It was even better than we remembered. We were first there in 2009 and then returned in 2012. Each time we have visited we can see incremental improvements. They keep raising the bar on services, amenities, and the condition of the property. We truly respect a professional operation that...

We had booked Wakatobi after returning from our vacation there last year and we are about to do it again. There have been a few changes at the resort as far as staff is concerned - however, service, diving and everything else is as we remembered. The resort was not fully booked during our recent visit - big difference to...

Probably the best resort we've ever done in relation to the house reef. The snorkeling around the resort is so extraordinary that one is almost tempted not to go diving. The diving is anyway very beautiful with over 50 dive sites in a 15 minute boat ride radius. The dive staff is not really up to the level of the...

Wakatobi was an excellent experience from the correspondence emails prior to the trip, arrival at the airport and right down to the moment we arrived back in Bali. We were always greeted by name, asked how we could be helped, and given personal attention. The resort itself is focused on diving, it would be difficult for significant others who did...

We just got back from our second visit to Wakatobi. Our first trip was about 10 years ago and we were worried that the condition of the reefs and marine life might have deteriorated like we have seen in so many spots around the world. We were very pleased to see that both were just as pristine as they were...

We returned after a great holiday last year with our sons aged 14 and 17. When you return to place you are never certain the trip will be as good, or the standard maintained. We need not have worried. The service was consistent throughout, whether it be the superb restaurant, the attention to the rooms or the dive team, attention...

Wakatobi is a lovely resort to spend a dive or snorkel vacation, I suggest at least 10 days to see different sites in all their glory. The camera room is equipped with every thing you need to comfortably set up your equipment. I had a palm hut, it set back behind the ocean front ones. You have a deck to...

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...
