Selayar Island Info

Selayar, a secluded island, far away from mass tourism, lies in the Celebes Sea to the south of the Indonesian Island Sulawesi. Myths have been kept alive on this small island which once lay on the Chinese trade route. The west side of the island is mainly inhabited by fishermen, who live in small villages that continue to follow their traditions largely unaffected by western influences. Besides traditional fishing, the growing of vanilla and tangerines generate the main sources of income on the island.


Selayar Dive Resort

we are the first resort on the island, established in 1997.
Selayar Dive Resort is a fascinating destination owing to its unique landscape, unusual rock formations – full of caves and waterfalls – and its beautiful unspoilt beaches. The almost uninhabited east side of the island, where our resort is situated, is still covered with original rain forest. It is possible to find numerous species of birds, small reptiles, marsupials, varans and even wildboars. Furthermore, when one is lucky, the world’s smallest monkey, the tarsius, that is in danger of extinction, can be seen in his habitat.
This eastern side of the island is surrounded with a reef – and our resort is proud that it owns this longest house reef in Indoneisa.

The bungalows have been built in traditional Indonesian style using local raw materials and perfected with western know-how. Each one stands in its own secluded grove of trees and has its own beach.
guests have a fantastic view of the beach, the sea and palm trees, even lying in bed. There is a ceiling fan in each bungalow – some even have air-conditioning – a minibar, soft comfortable mattresses and mosquito nets. The bungalows are furnished with solid wood and rattan furniture and on the terrace there are beach loungers.

Our restaurant is the heart of the resort. Not only do guests meet here for breakfast, lunch and dinner on the big veranda but at night they can also enjoy cocktails at the small bar – served by the boss himself. Our chef offers both Asian and international cuisine, including a hearty steak from time to time. For breakfast, traditional brown bread is served. Lunchtime is mainly vegetarian with fresh fruits and for dinner, a full three-course-menu is the usual fare including soups, fresh fish, Asian or European style chicken.
