This was our most expensive holiday ever even without taking into account the first time long haul business class air fares! We are primarily snorkelers so this was how I found Wakatobi from "10 best" lists - I had previously always said that we were "Maldives spoiled" for beautiful reefs but Wakatobi certainly excelled. We had great customer service from...

This was our 5th visit to Wakatobi and we have already book our 6th trip. We found every aspect of our visit (diving, dive guides, food, people, accommodation, etc.) well above our very high expectations. We celebrated our 600th dive during our trip and we have experienced many, many other dive operations. We can say with complete certainty that Wakatobi...

Note: If you are looking at diving in Indonesia, I'm not going to spend this review talking about that because you already know that you are going to one of the best areas in the world for diving. Instead, I will tell you why WAKATOBI is the best place to go. This was my 2nd trip to Wakatobi. I went...

We spent 7 nights at Wakatobi in January 2017. The accommodations, food and service surpassed our highest expectations. We stayed in Villa 3 and enjoyed our morning coffee and afternoon drinks looking on the sea view deck. The room itself was large and comfortable with good AC. Food was always exceptional. Diving was very good, the staff made it easy,...

We stayed for 8 days at Wakatobi in October 2016. In a truly remote location, Wakatobi offers very much an untouched feeling. The accommodation is extremely comfortable. We stayed in the 2 bedroom villa. Absolutely stunning. The buffet style food is excellent. The staff are very friendly and do all they can to accommodate your wishes. The diving could not...
