This hotel is the closest one from the airport. The hotel was good, food was ok. beach area wasn't good for swimming nor for diving. If you want to do diving, you need to drive about 15 minutes to a nice diving place. To go to Hoga island, it takes about 30 minutes drive to the port to take a... More

It is probably considered the 'most proper' place to stay in Wangi Wangi island mainly because there is no other big 'hotel or resort'. And they said it is where all 'VIPs' would stay when visiting the island. But there is no other facilities within the premises except for cottages (they have 3 types), one restaurant (which can be used... More

We stayed only 1 night (end of April 2014) at the end of our diving trip from Tomia island since we will not be able to catch our plane ride after our boat ride from Tomia island. It takes about 45 minutes from Mola harbor to reach Patuno. Pro: 1. Free pick up from Mola harbour and to airport/ The... More

In summary, Patuno provided the worst scuba diving service I've ever experienced. With its price, I deserved to be treated with better service. Funny how we told the dive center/crews what to do, instead of they guided us and gave us comfort and pleasant diving experience. Read below for my worst diving experience; happily we are still alive. To be... More

I am not sure what previous reviewers are expecting for approximately $100/night for a double room and $35 for a dive with all gear included, and criticising the staff for not be able to speak English. Ahhh this is Indonesia and a remote corner at that, maybe it is time these people brushed up on a little Bahasa Indonesian before... More

The reality of Patuno is far different to the information on their web site. As a dive site, it is excellent .The resort is isolated, with nothing to do and no facilities. There is no beach and no place to swim when the tide is out. During my week there in November, 2013 there was no music or cultural dancing,... More

The Patuno Resort is located on the island of Wangi Wangi, the "WA" part of the Wakatobi marine park. The flights in/out of Wangi Wangi are quite limited so one must carefully plan one's itinerary. I flew out of Denpasar after a 2 day layover on Bali then spent the night in Makassar before getting a connection to Wangi Wangi.... More

"Home" reef too rough and far away, I had fear of getting into trouble and no one would even notice. - Good snorkelling and diving trips away...at a price. - Do not... More

The rooms are nice but this where the good things end: the hotel has no beach and snorkling is nearly impossible due to high waves on the reef. The staff is clueless and does not speak English even though the hotel pretends to be of international standing. Finally: the food is horrible and made me sick. I threw up all... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Patuno Resort Wakatobi is the Wakatobi's most accessible FOUR STAR Resort, situated only a 10 minute drive from the Matahora Airport in Wangi-Wangi. The Wakatobi National Marine Park encompasses over 12 thousand hectares of protected marine park and is made up of four main islands; Wangi-Wangi, Kaledupa, Tomia and Binongko. Patuno Resort stretches along a long white sandy beach which is ideal for sunbathing on, snorkeling from, strolling along, or organizing an impromptu barbecue on. A long barrier reef in front of this resort offers great diving and snorkeling opportunities. The breathtaking overhangs and steep walls of colorful corals are teaming with schooling pelagic fish and hammerhead sharks have recently been spotted here too. The resort is designed with natural building materials such as bamboo, teak wood, coconut wood, rattan and palm leaves, adding to the natural ambiance of the island. ... more   less
