About Komodo Resort
Set on secluded Sebayur and away from the hustle and bustle of Labuan Bajo, Komodo Resort offers an unbeatable location for divers and nature lovers alike. The private beach bungalows are styled to blend in with the green, hilly landscape, with great options available for groups and families, while a small fleet of boats carries guests on daily excursions to explore the best of Komodo - including treks in search of its famous dragons, the flying foxes of Kalong, and world-renowned dive sites like Batu Bolong and Manta Point.
Just offshore, a kilometre-long house reef is packed with colourful coral gardens and marine life big and small - all steps from your front door. Further afield the Komodo National Park is a protected reserve with some of the best biodiversity on the planet, its seascapes offering everything from manta ray encounters to adrenaline-pumping drift dives. Back on land, you’ll find endless opportunities for relaxation with lush spa services, sumptuous meals and handcrafted cocktails, and a perfectly manicured beach ideal for swimming and sunbathing.
Explore the resort
This isolated resort was built to blend into nature, using local materials that highlight its natural surroundings. Spacious bungalows dot the beachfront, evoking a rustic Indonesian style but with modern comforts. The resort’s Sunset Restaurant is a small, open-air pavilion with options for both indoor and outdoor dining. Its a-la-carte menu incorporates produce fresh from the kitchen garden, quality imported delicacies, and fresh fish. The well-stocked Komodo Dragon Beach Bar sits right on the sand, creating a fun and social setting popular among guests. On this same stretch of sand, guests will find the spa, boasting a professional team of experts and offering traditional Javanese treatments and massage techniques dedicated to divers.
This place isn’t just a paradise for divers - nature fans of all kinds will love exploring this remote property, home to incredible wildlife both above and below the waves! Search for Komodo dragons on the islands of Komodo and Rinca, or visit Panti Merah, one of just seven pink beaches on the planet. If you’re up for an extended adventure, combine your stay with a trip aboard the resort’s liveaboard safari boat - the Komodo Sea Dragon. This spacious and modern vessel offers five to seven-day trips visiting the very best sites in Komodo and Alor based on the season.
Diving from Komodo Resort
Komodo Resort Diving Club offers a wide range of PADI courses, conducted by an energetic and international team of instructors. Students can also expect comfortable classrooms, brand new rental equipment, and boats designed for use in this region. Courses are held on the resort’s house reef - allowing guests to get up close and personal with the region’s most exciting wildlife - even during their very first immersions! This flourishing coral garden is also a great place for swimming and snorkelling, with plenty to see from the surface and anytime access to all the gear you’ll need.
Sebayur Island is the perfect spot from which to explore Komodo’s famous dive sites. Day trips depart each morning, hitting two or three different areas depending on divers’ requests for that day. From bucket-list places like Batu Bolong and Manta Point to lesser-known seascapes, Komodo Resort’s central location gets you there with ease. This dive centre’s guides have decades of experience in the region, managing the day’s diving safely and professionally - and also pointing out the park’s coolest wildlife including hard to spot macro critters. You’ll feel perfectly safe with these experts at your side, even in the park’s famously challenging currents.
- Combine your stay with a liveaboard dive trip for the ultimate Komodo adventure!
- Pack all the essentials from home and plenty of pocket money - you won’t find any shops or ATMs on the island.
- Plan at least one dry day for hitting above-water tourist attractions like the pink beach and a Komodo dragon trek.
- Komodo Resort Diving Club closes for yearly maintenance and renovations during January and February.
Designed with natural materials and minimal impact to the surrounding environment, Komodo Resort offers a luxurious retreat into nature, set on the private island of Sebayur. This resort’s focus on balance within its fragile ecosystem is evident not only in its construction but in each day’s operations as well. Komodo National Park - and its vast seascapes below the surface - is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Komodo Resort aims to minimise the footprint of tourism and sustain the region’s rich ecosystems. Plastic is eliminated wherever possible resort-wide, the property’s own desalination facilities provide fresh water, and solar panels are installed to provide sustainable energy.
