Hotel Overview


South-eastern Sulawesi, Indonesia, reached by private charter flight from Bali in just under 3 hours, followed by a short boat ride.

Rooms at Wakatobi

The hand-crafted villas and bungalows (there are 15 ocean bungalows, nine palm bungalows and four villas) are mere steps from the ocean and are comfortable and spacious, with indoor bathrooms and Asian spa-style outdoor showers, air conditioning and Wi-Fi, alongside stunning sea views – relax on the porch to make the most of them – you can order room service from the restaurant, if you can’t bear to drag yourself away.

Food and facilities

At the Beach restaurant, enjoy delicious freshly-prepared meals throughout the day, inspired by both Asian and international cuisine, and linger over a gourmet dinner by the ocean.

Activities at Wakatobi

Dive and snorkel amongst colourful protected coral reefs teeming with marine life. Wakatobi’s luxury dive yacht, the Pelagian, will take you out to remote corners of the Tukang Besi archipelago, where you’ll come across unique and rare species and have the ocean all to yourself.  There are endless other options here too, including snorkelling, kayaking, kite-surfing and paddle-boarding. Explore the shallows and mangrove forests, home to exotic birds as well as fish. Back on land, walk the Onemobaa nature trail to spot monitor lizards, and visit local villages on neighbouring islands, including markets selling handmade arts and crafts. The hotel also has a kids club to keep the younger members of the family entertained.  After a day exploring by land and sea, relax in the spa, where East and West come together in a variety of European and Asian treatments – choose a Balinese massage or an almond and honey body scrub. Afterwards, sip a cocktail in the Jetty bar as you enjoy the spectacular sunsets.
