After enjoying the beautiful underwater world of Wakatobi off to Mamasa.
Makassa is easy to reach from Kuala Lumpur .From Makassar there is one flight a week to Mamasa, the airport has just opened 2 month. The 5 day trekking with guide Dominggus +6285242253959was great. The unspoiled nature of Mamasa, close to Toraja is the best place t
to get fit and rested again. The area is very hilly with breathtaking vieuws from
the tops. We stayed over in the traditional houses in the small villages. The
meals are simple but nice and always enough and the coffee is from the
The diving and hiking is a very nice combination of a full holiday
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The traditional cottages are built on stilts facing the beach and the sea, each with their own balcony and hammock for relaxing. On the beach there are also hammock areas where guests can read a book, meet for a cold beer and watch spectacular sunsets. The resort has electricity from 6pm till 10pm. Two rooms share one traditional mandy bathroom with water from the well. Often served on the beach, meals are varied and generous and are made with fresh ingredients including the catch of the day brought in by the local fishermen. Wia’s chips and spaghetti are famous as well as her traditional Indonesian dishes! When not diving, Hoga Island also offers other activities such as exploring around the island, a visit to the local sea nomad village, a trip by motorbike on nearby Kaledupa Island. We also have a small library of books in various languages as well as marine life reference books. The dive sites are all within a short boat ride from the Resort and include fantastic pinnacles, ridges, walls, ledges and overhangs which together, make this an unforgettable, underwater paradise. Due to Hoga Island’s remote location we do not have to compete with other divers for nice quiet dive sites and, whatever the weather, there is always a great choice of varied locations. Asrul, our local dive guide has a great eye for the small creatures on the reef, easily finding creatures such as pygmy sea horses and the orangutang crab in the bubble coral. Some sites have a superabundance of fish, where you can hang out at the end of your dive at 6 meters in utter bliss. ... more less
