The Ocean Bungalows are located directly on the beach, they all have huge front porches with comfortable lounge beds / cushions with uninterrupted views and possess the same comfortable fittings as the palm bungalows as well as Asian style outdoor showers. Located on the northern end of the resort beach and nestled on a small ledge just above the beach, the Villas offer unobstructed views over the ocean and sunset, even from the bathrooms. Each villa is classically designed and constructed of earthy materials such as wood and sandstone.

At the highly professional and experienced dive centre they offer three different types of diving; boat diving on one of our specially designed, locally-crafted dive boats, shore diving on our fabulous house reef and taxi boat diving on the further points of the house reef. You can participate in any one or all three of these options on any given dive day. They also offer night diving (unguided) on the house reef and 1-2 guided boat night dives. And you can experience Fluo diving, fluorescence is the absorption of one wavelength of light (or colour) and the re-emission of another, totally different wavelength of light (or colour) showing animals and corals as they have never been seen before.
Snorkellers are as well looked after as divers and Wakatobi offers them the same chance to see the beautiful marine world, either on the house reef, or snorkelers are always welcome aboard the spacious, sheltered dive boats, which are staffed by knowledgeable and accommodating guides, and amply stocked with snacks and drinks. Snorkelers have the flexibility to jump aboard on any of our dive boats to ensure they snorkel a reef with excellent snorkelling.
