Charming, eco-friendly and drenched in authenticity, Komodo Resort offers unparalleled access to the surrounding national park and all the natural wonders that it is home to.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Komodo National Park is an incredible destination for visitors who enjoy diving, snorkelling and trekking. This unique biosphere contains almost 6000 Komodo dragons, deer, monkeys, lizards, birds and biodiverse, turquoise waters. Pay a visit to this pristine landscape and you'll be blown away!

Komodo Island is an adults-only retreat, providing the ultimate in wild, Indonesian escapism. In your traditionally designed lodge, you'll find a large comfortable bed, an enclosed bathroom and a private veranda with seating- ideal for lazy afternoons and soaking up the breath-taking sunsets. Follow the path from your room to the beach and you'll find your own partially shaded wooden beach deck with a pair of sun loungers. Just a few steps down the beach, you'll find the open air restaurant, hosting a weekly pizza night. When you aren't diving, don't miss out on a trip to the pink beaches, Padar or Komodo Island or to see the flying foxes take off every evening from their mangrove home to fly together towards Flores!

Best dive sites in Komodo

Tatawa Kecil – The small island of Tatawa Kecil has a big reputation with divers. In fact, this underwater playground is a Komodo classic. There’s a mix of swim throughs, small caves, bommies and valleys which harbour huge numbers, and a huge diversity, of fish including reef sharks, jacks, batfish, snappers, groupers, sweetlips and occasionally a passing ray. Cannibal Rock – A firm favourite with macro photographers and those wanting to see some of Komodo’s more unusual marine life, Cannibal Rock is home to frogfish, pygmy sea horses, nudibranchs and coleman shrimp. This seamount dive site is famous for invertebrate species and colourful soft corals and, being quite sheltered, it’s a good site if you want a break from drift diving. The Cauldron – True to its name, The Cauldron looks like the top of a boiling pot and the crater offers many nooks and crannies to explore. Explore the macro life down one side, then be prepared for the contrast when you reach the bottom and find yourself surrounded by big fish. You’ll leave The Cauldron via the channel where dense schools of small to medium sized fish congregate. Only after you’ve dived here will you truly understand why it’s so iconic. Batu Bolong – Marine life gathers here as though the huge rock pinnacle is a magnet drawing them in. In the blue, you’ll see sharks and tuna hunting while schools of smaller fish dart around in synchrony. On the pinnacle itself the colours will astound you along with the sheer number of small reef fish swimming in and out of corals trying to keep up with the action. Pillarsteen – Pillarsteen boasts incredible topography including a number of caves and swim throughs. Peering into many of the crevices don’t be surprised to find something looking back at you! Marine life highlights here include a range of crustaceans, moray eels, often a passing shark or turtle, and plenty of reef fish. If macro is more your thing, take a close look at the soft corals and you won’t be disappointed – this site has something for everyone.

What to see

Komodo might be most famous for its larger inhabitants – think manta rays, sharks, eagle rays, tuna, jacks, trevallies, bumphead parrotfish and Napoleon wrasse - but the abundance of smaller fish is phenomenal – prepare to be amazed.
