Gold Standard: Ocean Bungalow with stunning sea view

In addition to stunning sea views, all Ocean Bungalows feature comfortable lounge-style beds, separate sitting areas, private indoor shower rooms and spacious Asian spa-style outdoor showers. For guests seeking the optimal blend of luxury and cost-effectiveness, an Ocean Bungalow is the best choice.

These fully appointed bungalows are located slightly behind and in-between the front-row Ocean Bungalows, nestled amidst beautiful palm trees and other tropical foliage. All guest needs and comforts are provided in a Palm Bungalow and, as with all accommodation types, guests enjoy chef-prepared meals and Wakatobi’s renowned and personalized service.

Amenities And Activities

Wakatobi offers guests the opportunity to create their dream dive holiday, including both in-water experiences and non-diving activities. Whether guests want to celebrate a special occasion, enjoy the most exclusive and personalised diving experience possible, or simply chill out in style, the team are able to custom-tailor your stay to create a truly unique vacation experience. Resort guests can choose from a range of additional watersports and beach activities, pamper themselves in the full-service spa, or stay entertained with the media suite, high-speed internet services and library. Other activities include Indonesian cooking classes, workshops, village tours and nature walks. Sports activities include kitesurfing, kayaking and wakeboarding. Wakatobi is family friendly, with childcare services and a kids club.

Private dive experience manager

A Private Dive Experience Manager offers the ultimate in underwater freedom and discovery. This personalised guide service, tailored to the guest’s wishes, enhances the diving and snorkeling experience by providing a deeper understanding of marine life behavior, assisting the guest’s underwater imaging, or guiding them through the unique experience of a Fluo dive, which is complimentary for those taking at least four days with a Private Dive Experience Manager.

Fluo diving

Guests see the underwater world like never before on a guided private or semi-private diving experience. At night, special ultraviolet lighting causes fluorescent proteins in certain fish and corals to light up in glowing colors. Fluo-diving is a second-to-none experience that guests find amazing, all while revealing the underwater realm in a new and enthralling manner.

Bali concierge

Guests can create personalised Bali layover experiences with the help of the concierge, who will take care of every detail of your visit. Private guides and drivers are available to transport guests to towering volcanoes, emerald green rice paddies, Hindu temples, dazzling beaches or a cultural dance performance - to name just a few. Bali also offers incredible value in art, furniture, silver jewelry, accessories, and tropical fashions! 

Private dive boat

Guests have the option to charter one of Wakatobi’s full-sized dive boats for personal use, either singly, as a couple or in a group of up to six. Private charters include the services of a captain and crew. This option allows guests to create their own itinerary, visiting dive sites of their choosing on their own schedule. Rather than return to the resort after dives, they can spend the day on the boat, enjoying breakfast and a catered lunch aboard.

Delectable dining

The executive chefs serve a savory mixture of Indonesian and international cuisines, which can be enjoyed in the ocean-view dining room, delivered to the guest’s villa or bungalow, or served by a personal wait-staff beachside. Full beverage services are enjoyed with meals, at the longhouse coffee bar or the jetty bar, which sits perched over the waters of the House Reef.

Family friendly

Wakatobi is a family-friendly dive resort, and children are encouraged to share in all appropriate resort activities. For times when guests are diving or relaxing, the resort offers a variety of adventures designed to entertain, amaze and educate kids. Children of any age are cared for allowing guests to fully enjoy their holiday, while also creating lifetime memories for the family.


East and West come together at Wakatobi’s Spa, which blends the best of Indonesian and European traditions. The original custom-blended oils and aromatherapies complement personalised massage and a variety of other treatments. With a caring heart and a pair of well-trained hands, the skilled therapists ease guests’ aches or stresses, leaving them relaxed and rejuvenated.


Recently, Wakatobi has gained recognition as a world-class destination for the exciting sport of kitesurfing. From June to September, seasonal trade winds provide ideal conditions for riders of all skill levels. Novices are provided with calm, sheltered waters right off the resort beach, while advanced riders can move out into the channel to play in the waves or make long distance runs. Wakatobi hosts a dedicated Kite Week each July, and has established a full-service kiteboard center, providing instruction, equipment and both shore and chase boat support.

Kayaking and wakeboarding

The calm lagoons near Wakatobi’s beach are ideal for watersports such as kayaking and wakeboarding. Equipment for both activities is provided as part of the activities package. Guests can enjoy self-guided paddling excursions at any time, or join resort guides for a nature tour of the coast. To experience the thrill of gliding over crystal-clear waters on a wakeboard, guests need only contact the water sports center to arrange for a driver and towboat. All equipment is provided, along with basic instructions for novice riders.

Nature touring

Wakatobi isn’t just about the ocean. A network of walking paths provides hours of exploration for walkers and bird watchers, with trails leading inland and to quiet waterfront venues where one can relax and take in the views. Wakatobi also arranges regular tours of area villages, giving guests a unique opportunity to interact with local residents of the islands in a warm and informal setting. Also on the schedule are activities such as Indonesian cooking classes and presentations on the fauna and cultural heritage of the region.
