Anthony’s Key Resort

Four decades ago, the creators of Anthony’s Key Resort envisioned a small, tropical hideaway that would allow adventurous travelers the opportunity to experience the beauty of Roatan and the Caribbean as nature intended. Today, the resort still retains an intimacy with its surroundings that are reminiscent of a peaceful island village. Charming, wooden bungalows dot the resort’s palm studded hillside and rim its shimmering lagoon. You can reach the tiny islet on a brief boat ride from the resort’s main grounds, where you’ll find more private bungalows and spectacular ocean vistas. While a favorite pastime among guests is lazing in bungalow hammocks, more active visitors can enjoy various watersports on the key’s small beach.

Wakatobi November 23-December 10th, 2018

No automatic alt text available.

Wakatobi is a luxury dive resort in southeastern Sulawesi, Indonesia. In a tranquil island setting far from crowds and cities, with no other divers for at least 100 miles, Wakatobi seamlessly blends five-star amenities and civilized comforts with a pristine natural environment; a pairing that has secured its reputation as one of the world’s finest resorts.  World-class diving is at your doorstep. From shore or by boat, you have exclusive access to miles of pristine reefs, where diverse and dramatic undersea landscapes harbor the highest level of marine biodiversity on the planet.

Wakatobi was created with the vision to deliver the ultimate dive experience and was established following an extensive search to identify the perfect location for a dive resort in terms of geography, climate, oceanic topography and marine biodiversity. To ensure its future we then created one of the world’s largest privately protected marine reserves. That gives you some idea of the extent to which we will go and the attention to detail that goes into every aspect of the Wakatobi experience.

Having identified the premier location, we developed a resort that, despite its remote position, offers a plenitude of facilities and comforts to make a dive trip, and all that surrounds it, an experience that you will cherish.
