About Proco Island Bambu Resort
Proco Island Bambu is a new diving resort, tucked away on its own island in the Patinti Strait, south Halmahera. This resort was created by one of Halmahera’s pioneering underwater explorers, who has been discovering and naming dive sites here since 2009. Born from many years of experience, and boasting great attention to detail, this impressive dive resort leaves nothing to be desired. Only opening its doors in 2023, Proco Island Bambu’s accommodations are clean and comfortable, its facilities are brand new, and the service is genuine and full of smiles.
Guests at this resort are accommodated in 12 cottages and two private villas, as well as the communal restaurant and bar, which feature bamboo heavily throughout the construction. As the only resort on the island, this property is surrounded by its own wild tropical garden of palm trees, sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, making it perfect for both relaxation and adventure. And, due to its remote location, in one of Indonesia's newest and best diving spots, the fringing reefs here are utterly outstanding.
