Air Paradise future uncertain future
Nov 24, 2005

SYDNEY – Australian holidaymakers in Bali were busy rearranging their flights home today after the failure of Air Paradise International, Bali’s home-grown carrier.Both Qantas and Australian Airlines have committed to repatriate passengers booked on Air Paradise.Passengers holding Air Paradise tickets who have yet to leave Australia will have to wait for the result of an investigation by corporate recovery specialists, KordaMentha, who have been called in to assist the stricken carrier.KordaMentha said the airline was not in administration or liquidation, but conceded it could not guarantee that pre-paid tickets to Bali would be honoured.Air Paradise ticket holders due to depart in the next fortnight are being advised to book flights on other airlines at their own expense or reschedule their holiday bookings until the review had been completed.The airline has also suspended payments to all of its creditors

Wakatobi Resort and Pelagian Quarterly Newsletter

As the year-end approaches, both Wakatobi Dive Resort and the Pelagian wish to thank all those that have visited us in 2005. On several fronts, 2005 will be remembered as one of our best years ever. We’ve been honored with environmental initiative awards by both PADI and Scuba Diving magazine. We were also nominated for two World Travel Awards for world’s best dive operator and Indonesia’s leading resort. In addition, the Pelagian liveaboard is now fully integrated into the Wakatobi family—and already starting to get rave reviews. And finally, we have had several returning guests comment that the reefs and marine life around Wakatobi are as healthy and robust as they have ever been—a testament to the years of marine conservation work we've pioneered at Wakatobi.

With 2006 right around the corner, we can't wait to see what the new season will bring (for a hint, keep reading).

Guest Comments Just In from the Pelagian
We’ve had many questions about the diving in the Wakatobi region aboard the Pelagian liveaboard. Here is a small sampling from our most recent guests:

“We spent an hour in the water with three minke whales; watched 100 +/- dolphin on the hunt; dove with turtles, cuttlefish, stingrays, morays, banded sea snakes, not to mention all the little critters muck diving. I took two 1 GB cards for the camera, laptop and a dozen CDs and used them all.” Dennis Pfeffer Pelagian guest, September 2005

"The Pelagian experience was fantastic! The boat is beautiful, the crew fantastic, and the diving is excellent." Nancy Boucha Pelagian guest, September 2005

Another Couple Reasons Not To Delay Your Wakatobi Trip
Reading over guest comments in the last month, we were amazed by the number of “world traveler” divers that were awestruck by the Wakatobi experience. Here's a sample:

"In the 13 years I have been diving, Wakatobi is the best resort I have ever visited." Douglas Armstrong September 2005

"I have traveled all over the world and have seen beautiful places & beaches, but nothing compares to Wakatobi Dive Resort, absolutely breath taking.” Lachelle Koester September 2005

"I've been to PNG, the Red Sea, the Coral Sea - Wakatobi beats them all!!” Michael Canzoneiro September 2005

"We've been diving for 20 years+ this was the best total experience ever, diving, macro + micro flora + fauna, hospitality + responsiveness" Ray Peacoe October 2005

And, remember…you don’t have to travel the world before you discover Wakatobi. It’s ok to start at the top!

Looking Forward to 2006 and a Special Offer
With only a few months left in 2005, the end of the season at Wakatobi is quickly approaching. For those coming to Wakatobi in 2006, here are a few highlights of what is coming in the 2006 season:

  • The resort’s new restaurant will be open by the start of the season.
  • A second Cliff Villa will be completed, offering guests another finely appointed accommodation with 80 square meters (860 square feet) of comfort.
  • The Pelagian will be featuring special Komodo Island cruises during select months (Feb-March and June – August).

One-third of Wakatobi Resort dates for 2006 are already fully booked, with another one-third approaching fully booked. There are still many dates available but the numbers are dwindling.

2006 Pelagian cruise dates are beginning to fill as word is getting out. Given the success of our inaugural year with the Pelagian, we look forward to really impressing guests in 2006 with even more spectacular diving and vessel upgrades.

Finally, Sayang Holidays and Singapore Airlines have teamed up to offer special pricing for a limited number of resort and liveaboard dates. The package includes international airfare to Bali from San Francisco or Los Angeles and two nights in Bali. If you've always wanted to dive the incredible reefs of Wakatobi but needed a good excuse, be sure to check out their offer.

Thanks again to all those that have visited us in the past year, and over the past years. It's your feedback, your word of mouth, and your support of our conservation efforts that continues to inspire us to give you a holiday diving experience beyond your dreams.

Sincerely, • The Wakatobi and Pelagian Team.

News from Tandjung Sari for 2005

Welcome to the last edition of ‘News from Tandjung Sari for 2005'.

As one of our most important guests, we wish to keep you updated on the happenings at Tandjung Sari and around Bali. We wish all our guests and friends a happy, healthy and safe Year End 2005, and a prosperous 2006.

The festive season and New Year celebrations are around the corner! It is time to share with close friends and family. However in our time of celebration, we do not forget the suffering that has touched the lives of so many people in Bali last October. Thank you to those guests who sent emails of concern.

Bali now remains a quiet and peaceful island, with extremely friendly and gentle people, awaiting the opportunity to welcome tourists back to the region.

What’s New?

  • Our Two-Storey Bungalow is under renovation. We are looking at another 3-4 weeks of completion, and it will be fabulous! For further information about special rates for other bungalow types, please contact us.
  • A “face-lift” is also being done for our Pool Deck area, nearby the swimming pool. This is planned to be completed early December.
  • We have a SPA!!! Tandjung Sari is proud to announce that we have signed a working agreement with Jamu Traditional Spa. Hotel guests will be able to enjoy Spa Treatments in Tandjung Sari. This will take effect early 2006.
