Wakatobi Luxury Resort, Getting there

A private charter flight from Bali gets you there by lunch

VIP Arrival Service

Our goal at Wakatobi is to make that experience as relaxing and convenient as possible. So, we’ve made your travel to us as easy, efficient, and comfortable as possible. We take care of you from the moment you touch down in Bali (even if you have a few days stop-over), guiding you through immigration and customs and helping you to collect your checked-in luggage - from that moment forward, everything is taken care of, so you can enjoy the worry-free trip of a lifetime. And we’re always thinking of ways to make your stay even more convenient and enjoyable.

We have included the following as part of the Wakatobi Guest Flight experience:

  • VIP Arrival Service when you arrive at Bali International Airport on your way to Wakatobi (even if you arrive a few days before your departure to the island). 
  • VIP departure lounge in the Domestic Terminal, including breakfast.
  • Wakatobi Guest Flights – Bali/Wakatobi/Bali (a 2.5-hour flight each way).
  • Inflight light meal, soft drinks, tea and coffee.
  • Full international luggage allowance on our private flight to the resort and return.
  • Return transfers from Wakatobi’s private airport to the resort.

Arrival in Bali

When you arrive at Bali’s Denpasar International Airport, you will be met and greeted by one of Wakatobi’s airport concierge staff. We'll do this even if you've arranged a night or two in Denpasar along the way. It's still part of our promise and service to you. Our concierge is there to assist with the details of your journey onward to Wakatobi.

Transfer to private guest lounge

Wakatobi’s flight departs from Bali International Airport early in the morning on Mondays and Fridays, depending on the time of year. 

Flight schedules

Guests can choose from 7, 10, 11, 14 nights or more based on the flight schedule.  For example:

  • 7 nights - *Monday/Monday or Friday/Friday 
  • 10 nights - Friday to the following Monday
  • 11 nights - Monday to the following Friday
  • 14 nights - Monday/Monday or Friday/Friday

On the morning of your travel from Bali to the resort, the Wakatobi team will either greet you at the airport or transfer you from your hotel, where you will be escorted to a PRIVATE LOUNGE. Here you’ll enjoy a complimentary breakfast and have a chance to get acquainted with fellow passengers before boarding our flight to the resort.

Our charter flight whisks you there in time for lunch. Your Private Charter Flight will be 2.5 hours (1,000 km) on a 70-seat ATR-72 600 aircraft providing generous luggage allowances.  Our partnership with a national Indonesian carrier enables Wakatobi Resort to provide guests with a fast, comfortable flight. This turboprop aircraft cruises at a speed of 500 kilometers per hour, cutting the flight time between Bali and the resort’s private airstrip to just over two hours.

Service is another high point of our flight.

A series of ongoing quality-assurance programs earned the carrier numerous awards and accolades, including recognition by the Centre for Asia-Pacific Aviation as Asia’s leading service airline. Because it is significantly larger than many aircraft used for regional service, the plane provides additional space and comfortable seating along with increased baggage capacity. Many guests have remarked favourably on the generous baggage allowances aboard the Wakatobi Resort flight, and photographers in particular value the ability to bring a full complement of equipment.

On Arrival at Wakatobi

The Wakatobi team will then attend to all details of luggage transfer while you can relax over lunch in the dining room, or maybe take a walk down the beach for some Wakatobi sunshine. There’s ample time afterward to unwind on the beach or to jump right into afternoon and evening snorkelling excursions.
