The diving is fantastic all year around here in the Komodo National park with over 50 dive sites to choose from! Due to the fact that our Komodo Beach Resort is situated in the very middle of all the dive sites, it means that our guests can enjoy all dive areas on the North, South and Central Komodo. Plus due to our location the boat trips to the dive sites are much shorter, which means more time to dive!!
We have written some dive site descriptions for you but there are many, many more than this so if there is a particular site you have heard about that you would like to visit just let us know on arrival and we will do our best to get you there. We of course want to take you to all the top dive sites but there are so many more amazing sites that are as yet undiscovered in the park as the area is so vast so we often do exploratory dives for those who are interested.
The Beach Restaurant
Our chef will prepare for you a delicious buffet of Indonesian and other Asian food using all local ingredients and fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables (currently we do not serve any sea food in our resort because being just on the edge of the National Park we cannot be sure that the fish are being legally caught).
We try to buy most of our products from the local village of Warloka as once a week they have a market. All else is bought from nearby Labuan Bajo.
Once or twice a week we have a bon fire and BBQ on the beach and normally once a week the resort managers like to give everybody the option of a bit of a western fix and cook some well know favorites such as Chili con carne or a roast dinner! You are very welcome to join us but of course there will still be Indonesian options available for those that want them.
Our chef really does aim to please and if there are any special dietary requirements you have please let us know in advance. All meals are included in the package including a snack between dives 1 and 2 and at 5:00 PM. Tea, coffee and water is also included.
