Wakatobi, Southeast Sulawesi Itinerary

It’s a truism that the more remote the destination, the more staggering the experience. Wakatobi – a private, chartered plane trip from Bali – is certainly remote. The island is also claimed to be one of the world’s most astonishing dive resorts; not least by the privileged few who have visited.

Specify Wakatobi as the dive highlight of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Indonesia and you will soon understand why the resort has won such acclaim, and so many awards. Its villas and bungalows have a level of comfort uncommon at dive resorts. The food is definitely gourmet. And then there is the sea itself. Expect a multi-coloured house reef fringed with spectacular dive spots. Expect knowledgeable dive guides and the new sensation of fluo-diving. In short, expect the ultimate.
