Comments [None]world class dive sites 10-20 scenic minutes from resort; walls, slopes, some muck and rubble diving, interesting creatures and big fish too, turtles every dive. Special Mandarin fish dive. Good boats, back roll into water, fresh towels, sun deck or shade, fruit and drinks during surface interval, one guide for 4 people max. All guides seemed very knowledgeable, some had better grasp of English than others. Resort rooms clean and very well appointed, bures at water edge are best. Food is superb in quality and quantity by Italian head chef, variety at every meal including always Indonesian dishes , buffet if full of guests or else plated dinners. Breakfast buffet changing dishes and excellent baked goods daily and also cooked to order eggs, fresh homemade fruit jams. Dining is on beach weather permitting or in beachside pavilion. Wakatobi influences.
Spa is first class with Indonesian massages, body treatments,facials and nail services.
Very reasonably priced packages compares favorably or less cost than Caribbean dive resorts. Ana and Miguel are hands on customer service oriented and all staff follow suit.
Effort to make all guests - divers and non divers - welcomed and happy. Many sites can be snorkeled and dived simultaneously. Can't wait to go back.
