Patuno Resort Wakatobi is a locally owned establishment and is under new Western management since October 2010. This Wakatobi resort began receiving guests in December 2009 and our high-quality, comfortable facilities along with our tastefully designed natural hard wood rooms have not failed to delight our guests. We are committed to keeping things natural without compromising on comfort and as a result we offer high quality, luxury accommodation located in the beautiful Wakatobi Marine National Park.
We are located in the heart of the Wakatobi, only a 10 minute drive from the Wakatobi airport on Wangi-Wangi Island. Our Wakatobi Resort stretches along a long white sandy beach which is ideal for sunbathing on, snorkeling from, strolling along, or organizing an impromptu barbecue on. A long barrier reef in front of this Wakatobi resort offers great diving and snorkeling opportunities. The breathtaking overhangs and steep walls of colourful corals are teaming with schooling pelagic fish and hammerhead sharks have recently been spotted here too.
All of our staff at Patuno Resort Wakatobi are committed to providing top quality service to all guests from the moment you arrive until the time of your departure. This includes a free airport pick up and welcome drinks upon arrival. Throughout your stay we will do our utmost to ensure your comfort and enjoyment of our Wakatobi resort.
