Wakatobi's Guest Flight makes travel to the resort comfortable and convenient

Easy Arrivals

Published June 1, 2024 in RESORT

Travel to Wakatobi does not get any easier via a direct flight exclusively for guests of Wakatobi Resort and Pelagian Dive Yacht.

Many guests tell us that our Bali airport concierge services and direct onward flights to the resort are key factors that differentiate Wakatobi from other remote destinations. And thanks to our partnership with a top airline carrier, and a convenient weekly flight schedule, we provide guests with more flexibility when planning stays at the resort and cruises aboard the Pelagian.

It begins in Bali, where guests are greeted by a Wakatobi representative, who assists with all details of arrival, baggage handling, transfers, and overnight stays. Guests enjoy a similar level of attentive service on the morning of their flight to the resort, making the entire process seamless and relaxing.

Our experience with the service at Bali Airport was overwhelmingly positive,” says guest Jane Corbett-Jones. “After some trepidation about Bali airport customs and visa requirements, we were met by a lovely Wakatobi representative who gathered our luggage and assisted us through all the customs checks. Other tourists were fumbling and looked stressed, but not us… we sailed through.”

We were escorted through the airport by one of the Wakatobi ambassadors,” recalls Jane’s husband Jonathan. “She steered us through security and customs, even helped us pick up a SIM card on the way through, and then walked over to our hotel with us and helped us check in for the night. In the morning we were met at the domestic departures by yet more Wakatobi ambassadors in their bright blue shirts. They walked us through the domestic security barriers and then upstairs for a great breakfast. We got to chat with the other guests whilst waiting to board the plane to our magical island.”

Guest Russel Johnson writes “We recently returned from our second experience at Wakatobi and found that the service and care offered by the Wakatobi staff to be exceptional in all areas.”This personal attention started well before bags were packed,” adds his wife Joan. “It started with our Wakatobi sales representative, Linda. She has been absolutely fantastic in organizing our bookings, payments and so forth. She was competent and helpful in every step of the way.
