A dive experience that will enthrall and endure at Wakatobi Resort and aboard the Pelagian luxury liveaboard dive yacht.

Wakatobi was created with the vision to deliver the ultimate dive experience and was established following an extensive search to identify the perfect location for a dive resort in terms of geography, climate, oceanic topography and marine biodiversity. To ensure its future, one of the world’s largest privately protected marine reserves was created . That gives you some idea of the extent to which they will go and the attention to detail that goes into every aspect of the Wakatobi experience.

Having identified the premier location, they developed a resort that, despite its remote position, offers a plenitude of facilities and comforts to make a dive trip, and all that surrounds it, an experience that you will cherish.

Wakatobi is a 5-star luxury dive resort in southeastern Sulawesi, Indonesia. In a tranquil island setting far from crowds and cities, with no other divers for at least 100 miles, Wakatobi seamlessly blends five-star amenities and civilized comforts with a pristine natural environment; a pairing that has secured its reputation as one of the world’s finest resorts.

The property includes 28 exquisite seaside villas and bungalows tucked into a lush landscape to create a tranquil refuge where “barefoot luxury” combines with exceptional diving and snorkeling.  The resort maintains a four-to-one staff-to-guest ratio to ensure the highest level of personal service.
