Lodge to Luxury

Levels of luxury

With several levels of accommodations now available, Wakatobi is able to provide guests with accommodation packages to suit a range of individual needs and budgets.

The most cost-effective option, known as The Essentials, puts guests in the updated Palm Bungalows, which feature separate sitting areas and porch, and a full range of amenities on par with the finest hotel suites. From rooms nestled among palms and luxuriant tropical landscaping, guests can savor nature’s music: birdsong, the waves lapping a stone’s throw away and the breeze rustling in the trees.

As with all accommodations, guests on The Essentials package enjoy the resort’s renowned and personalized service, attentive staff and chef-prepared meals.

Guests seeking an optimal blend of luxury and value can select the Gold Standard package, which places them in an Ocean Bungalow with views of the beach and the reefs beyond. These upgraded bungalows offer separate sitting areas, as well as indoor bathrooms plus spacious Asian spa-style outdoor showers.

Service to match

Upgrades to Villas and Bungalows are an ongoing process at Wakatobi, and so too is the emphasis on ever-higher levels of service. Resort staff have always prided themselves on providing warm, personalized service, and on exceeding guest expectations. To aid this process, Wakatobi offers ongoing training and education for all staff members–from butlers and guides who interact directly with guests, to other support staff such as the restaurant team, maintenance crews and office personnel. As a result, guests receive the benefits of the smooth, expert execution of these unseen services, which include a well-maintained infrastructure, professional administration and gourmet meals that are just that much more fresh and delicious.
