Alor Divers Resort - Alor Island, Indonesia

posted by Liquid Diving Adventures    |   May 26, 2013 15:14

Indonesia has become one of our favorite dive destinations because of the variety of dive sites.... wrecks, reefs, muck dives....you name it and you can find it in Indonesia. Here is another amazing resort on the Island of Alor. Our best package is 6 nights, 5 days with full board beach bungalow accommodations, 2 boat dives per day, unlimited house reef dives, airport, transfers for $1253 per person double occupancy ($969 Euro). A transfer package including R/T airfare from Bali plus a one night hotel stay is required and priced at time of booking.

Located between Flores and Sawoe Sea, Alor Archipelago is one of Indonesia's last frontiers. Alor and Pantar are the main Islands and the strait between the two is a world class dive attraction.

A long time considered too remote because of the lack of infrastructure, Alor and its capital Kalabahi are now much easier to access. Owing to the latest development of Indonesian airlines this paradise is just a small step further than popular destinations such as Bali or Java. In the Alor region, the local government is carefully planning and developing ecotourism as a part of a conservation strategy. Aware of the potentional of the Alor marine park, it is working closely with local communities, encouraging sustainable fishing techniques to keep Pantar strait an authentic underwater paradise.

 

THE RESORT - Alor Divers is an intimate resort situated on a 400m long white sandy beach; stretched layout, all the bungalows and restaurant seafront, spacious private terraces with view on spectacular Pantar strait; indoor bathroom with hot and cold shower, 24h reliable electricity.

The resort offers full board accommodation with a variety of healthy meals, succulent combination of Asiatic and International dishes.


THE DIVING - World class diving in Alor, virgin slopes and walls with generous coral growth, scenic underwater rock formation and pinnacles, excellent fish life, critters dives and more... Unlimited diving on pristine house reef, seasonal passage of whales. Dive locations chosen according to the tide to get the best conditions and safe diving; all the dive sites within 5 to 35m boat ride. Photos courtesy of Gilles Brignardello, Alor Divers.

Crystal Blue Resort – Anilao, Philippines

Your hosts are Mike Bartick, Anilao expert and owner of Saltwater Photo.com, and Liquid Diving Adventure's owners Greg and Gail Carter.

Anilao is also the nudibranch capital of the world!
