Wakatobi Resort is a world-renowned diving and snorkeling destination. And it's not just for adults. Though located in a remote island setting in southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia, the resort is family friendly in many ways. Direct charter flights from Bali to the resortís own airstrip and terminal-to-room concierge services make travelling with youngsters easier. Travel begins with a light breakfast at Bali's VIP airport lounge, and by lunchtime, everyone is settled in at the resort. Wakatobi's culinary team can provide kid-friendly menus and special dietary requests, all of which are prepared to the same high standards as the five-star cuisine adults enjoy.
Wakatobi's spacious bungalows allow families to stay together while maintaining personal space. Larger groups can reserve one or more of the oceanfront villas to enjoy a second bedroom and bath, private decks with plunge pools and ocean views. Young children can be left in the care of the resortís nannies while parents enjoy diving and snorkeling, relaxing spa treatments, sunsets at the jetty bar and restaurant or patio dining with an ocean view. Wakatobiís Kids Club for children five to 12 offers a range of age-appropriate activities that can include kayaking, kite flying, treasure hunts, nature walks, sand sculpting, snorkeling and more. These programs are supervised by attentive counsellors, with a maximum ratio of three youngsters per adult.
