Wakatobi Your Way

Diving is still the most popular activity at Wakatobi Resort, but there’s much more to do, or—if guests so choose—little or nothing. To provide maximum flexibility, guests are able to choose the number of days they spend in the water, without being charged for the days they decide not to dive or snorkel. The daily activity fee covers all boat dives and shore diving support, or for something different, it also applies to our new kite surfing program.

During the months of May through September guests can try kite surfing with an onsite instructor; we offer one instruction session free of charge. Experienced kiters can enjoy speed runs in the flat waters inside the reef, venture into open water to play in the waves, or arrange for taxi boat service to set up long inter-island downwind runs. All other activities such as kayaking, paddleboards and beach and resort activities are included in the standard accommodation package.

Personal attentions

The staff and management of Wakatobi Resort are committed to the highest level of personal service. In addition to the warm welcomes and attentions lavished on all guests, we can provide a number of additional services, from nanny care and children’s programs to butler service, private dive/snorkel guides, private boat charters, dive instruction and a range of underwater photo and video classes for everyone from beginner to pro. An additional indulgence available to all our guests are the soothing and therapeutic treatments offered at our on-site spa.

The Wakatobi Spa is open every day from 9am to 9pm. Treatments can be carried out at the spa boutique or in your villa or bungalow. Photo by Marco Fierli, marcof8.com

Mealtimes have always been a favorite with our guests. Our chefs and restaurant service team take pride in presenting a delicious and varied array of offerings each day, but they are equally accommodating of special requests, be they for dietary reasons or simply a desire for a favorite indulgence. The waterfront dining room offers a great al fresco ambiance, but guests can also enjoy their meals on private decks and verandahs, request a picnic basket for a quiet lunch on a secluded portion of the beach, or schedule a private beachside lunch or dinner.

One of our great pleasures is creating special moments for guests looking to commemorate and celebrate landmark life events. Over the years we’ve welcomed honeymooners, and played host to birthdays, family gatherings and anniversary celebrations. Groups can also be accommodated with perks such as organized activities, special dinners and dedicated dive boats.

Ultimately, our goal is to provide each guest with the widest range of choices and the greatest degree of flexibility in the water, at the resort and during their travels. We invite you to contact our guest experience consultants and begin planning your own perfect and personalized visit to Wakatobi Resort.
