Here is another amazing resort on the Island of Alor.

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.
