Wakatobi Hoga Diving
Ranked #1 of 1 Hoga Island B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Mamasa, Toraja,
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
plantations around.
The diving and hiking is a very nice combination of a full holiday

Room Tip: Bring a flashlight and a book

Was planning on staying for 3 night ended up staying 7 nights.
I travelled alone and was the only guest there but was not lonely at all.
Nice staff, good food, rice and fish everyday, if you like a snack you should bring them yourself, a clean beach at the resort so you can walk around in a bathing suit without all the locals staring at you :-).
Went diving twice, great place to dive with a lot of fish.

I had an amazing time at the Hoga Dive Resort. Every day you get great fresh food, fish from the sea and if you are lucky you even get a nice cold beer! Diving is amazing, there are so many fishes and the coral is colourfull and healthy.

I stayed at Hoga Dive Resort for 3 weeks and enjoyed my stay very much. The bungalows are comfortable and clean and all have a sea view. The beach is amazing, with golden sand and coconut trees and the snorkelling is paradise with beautiful soft corals, sea snakes and turtles swimming around.

Wiah who does everything, from looking after the guests to cooking is an amazing cook. The doughnuts and fresh bread I had for breakfast, was the best and biggest breakfast I ever had travelling anywhere and the other meals were amazing with more than enough food to eat.

The reef is very fat to swim to but is worth it and at night under the mosquito net you can see many firefly dancing around while listening to tranquility of the ocean waves.

I had an amazing time at Hoga and would definately recommend this resort to anyone looking for peace and tranquility and the beauty of nature

Room Tip: Front row bungalows are the best, but reserved for divers.

I stayed there in November 2013 with 2 friends.
The diving is incredible, prestine reef with lots of fish and the famous pygmee seahorse.
On the island we stayed in a nice cottage 25m from the beach with a stunning view.
Slept like a baby.

Hammocks all over the place for relaxing and great service from Geertje (the manager) and her local crew.
Fresh tuna sashimi, Bintang beer and a bonfire on the beach at night, wow..

Most amazing were our visits to the Sea Nomads.
Can't wait to visit it again.

I have been here twice and both times it was just an amazing experience. Such a special, small Island. You really have the feeling that you are in paradise. Far, far away from the 'regular' touristic places and big hotel chains.

Great people, great food and amazing diving sites. One word: WOW!

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
