One of the world’s most remote kite spots with miles and miles and miles of shallow flats, reef breaks, beach breaks and untouched expanses of tropical bliss.

In the sport of kiting there are generally two kinds of places to ride. Either it’s spots easily accessed by a variety of transportations near urban centers. They are often very crowded and offer only one kind of rides. Then there are the far-flung remote locales with pioneer experiences that’s rarely or never been ridden before. The trick with those spots is that they’re extremely difficult to reach and generally come with very limited luxuries.

Wakatobi is different as it combines both worlds.

There’s the easy access by a private flight from Bali, then there’s the resort with all the amenities and comforts to delight even the most discerning traveler. And right in front you have an immense area with a fantastic variety of kite spots seen only by a handful of other kites. You can live in the lap of luxury and kite as if you were on your own planet.

Wakatobi Kiting Week

Over the years a few kiters carried out exploratory kiting around Wakatobi. In 2014 we held our first Kiting Week - response was overwhelming - so good that a second week was held a few months later. Now a regular component in Wakatobi's events schedule, Kiting Week is a firm favorite amongst kiters who want to experience top quality conditions, along with first-class accommodation and service.

Comfort, Luxury, Expanse, Pioneer, Remote, Vast, Wicked.

As an added bonus the flight from Bali out to Wakatobi is exclusively chartered for the resort guests so there’s no arguing about luggage. While you can use the gear at the resort you’re welcome to – within reason – bring any gear you desire, no questions asked! Now how’s that for red carpet treatment?

One week at Wakatobi including return flight from Bali starts at USD 3800 including accommodation, ALL amazing meals (and yes they truly are!), a substantial conservation contribution, kite taxi boat support, and a variety of excursions to remote beaches, reef flats and pristine downwinders.

Act now or you’ll miss out - and then what are you going to think next year when you read about how awesome it was?
