We had high expectations for this incredible place and they were all fulfilled and more. From the moment we arrived in Bali they started taking care of us. On the short flight over to the resort the next day things got even better. Upon arrival...More
Beware. I was injured at Wakatobi. No doctor. No nurse. No sat phone. Bad wifi. Trapped for days. Finally emailed my daughter stateside for help. I had to be air-evacuated by Divers Alert Network. No refund on fees paid. No response from management.
Everything was well thought out - if a thought crossed your mind, then you can be assured it's crossed their minds! If there was one word to describe our experience, it would be "Effortless"
The diving was spectacular and dive operation crew were all very...More

Dear Madeline, your question is quite strange for me as I live in Europe and we have a different system about tips. When you book your trip to wakatobi you pay an all inclusive plan: all meals and dive packages. Just beverages are excluded. When you check out, they provide you an envelope for tips that are equally distributed. The percentage is up to you. I hope this answers your question. 😁

Thank you for reaching out.
Yes, Wakatobi is very snorkel friendly. In addition to our amazing House Reef, which is just steps from your bungalow or villa, the reefs surrounding the resort are ideal for snorkelers, as coral formations at a majority of our sites rise to within a meter or less of the surface. Our boats go out to these sites, snorkelers are included on the boat excursions and have a snorkel guide, who provides a comprehensive briefing of the site and accompanies you in the water to assist, show you marine life, whatever are your wishes.
If you would like our guest relations team to answer additional questions and provide information, please inquire on our website - click on the link at the bottom titled: Enquiry and Booking. Of course, there is no obligation, we are here to help.
There are also some great snorkeling articles on our blog, which can also be accessed from our website. Click on Blog at the top right.
If I can be of further assistance, please ask.
We hope to see you at Wakatobi in the future!
