Why we love Wakatobi

Published December 30, 2015 in RESORT

At your service

“The upgrades are beautiful.” say Donna and Tom Pannke. “You all have a precious gift for making each guest feel unique and special. We return time and again because of your incredible service and hospitality.” Diving may be a sport that emphasizes self-reliance while in the water, but at Wakatobi, that doesn’t mean you’ll be on your own – either in the water or ashore. The primary mission of our dive guides is to enhance rather than restrict the dive experience, and to provide support service in everything from critter spotting and navigation to assistance in entering and exiting the water. “Wakatobi’s dive guides seem to love their vocation; their enthusiasm is contagious. It’s a real pleasure to dive with them,” says Debi Brown. Ashore, the resort’s philosophy of ultimate service is manifest from the time you step off the aircraft until the moment you depart. “I never ran into any staff who was not operating at the highest level of customer service; this is a resort full of friendly and helpful faces everywhere you turn,” says guest Vanessa Trask.“Every possible inconvenience and headache was stripped away,” she says.

Unless you’d prefer to do so, you need never handle or assemble your dive gear, and there is always a helping hand available to lift, carry or honor a special request. First time guests are often impressed when staff members greet them by name, but they soon become accustomed to an atmosphere where hospitality isn’t just a job, but a way of life. From attentive nanny services to catering private dinners on the beach, arranging island tours to ensuring special dietary requests, our staff takes pride in anticipating and following through on your every need.

“The standards of Wakatobi resort are those you expect from a high end luxury resort including rooms, facilities, food, etc. Top that with the luxury diving experience and the wonders you will be exploring underwater with your own private guide, this is a five-star experience,” says Fatema Al Hameli.
