Wakatobi Warm-Up

Published November 4, 2021 in NEWS, RESORT

Bali has begun the process of opening up to travelers and while we can’t yet put a firm date on Wakatobi’s reopening, it shouldn’t be much longer. Many of our guests are reserving their spots for the 2022 season and beyond. As you make plans for your own travels, we thought it would be nice to share a few reminders of what makes Wakatobi such a special place. Think of it as your Wakatobi pre-trip warm-up.

Arrive relaxed
From the moment you arrive in Bali, the Wakatobi team is dedicated to providing a pleasant, efficient, and personalized travel experience. We partner with a number of hotels in Bali to provide relaxing layovers prior to our morning flight to the resort.

Our Bali concierge team can coordinate a wide variety of additional services and experiences–from dinner reservations and shopping trips to island tours and cultural activities for guests who opt for a longer layover in Bali. > Read more

Following a stopover, you’ll take our guest flight from Bali directly to the resort’s own airstrip. Our partnership with a national Indonesian carrier enables us to provide a fast, comfortable flight aboard a 70-seat ATR-72 that cruises at a speed of 500 km per hour, cutting the flight time to just over two hours.

Nature at your doorstep
Imagine a place where your wake-up call is birdsongs and the gentle rustling of palm fronds in a sea breeze, and your morning ritual begins with coffee and freshly baked croissants enjoyed on an ocean-view verandah. Those moments and much more come standard with a stay in the Bungalows or Villas at Wakatobi. > Read more

A foodie favorite
A number of things can transform a good vacation into an exceptional experience. And one of these is food. +In keeping with our desire to make every visit an exceptional experience, mealtime becomes much more than just a chance to fill up before the next adventure. In fact, many guests consider the dining to be a truly memorable element of the Wakatobi experience. > Read more

It’s almost like being there
Nothing can match the wonder of a dive on Wakatobi’s reefs, but this video of memories produced by guests of Gigglin’ Marlin Divers comes close.

The underwater footage showcases a wide and dynamic range of marine life and will leave you wanting to pack your wetsuit and catch the first available flight once the resort reopens. Watch and see what you can expect to encounter on our reefs.
