Prince John Dive Resort, Central Sulawesi
Situated by the romantic picturesque Bay of Palu in Central Sulawesi, the Prince John Dive Resort will make you forget about everyday life and enjoy life to the full instead! Located 70 km south of the equator in the driest part of Indonesia, the dive resort does not only inspire by its paradisiacal holiday flair, but also by being one of the world’s most speciose dive sites. Macros like pygmies or ornate ghost pipefish offer a manifold variety of motives for any underwater photographer, and strong-current reefs invite you to exciting drift dives!
Prince John Dive Resort’s 15 picturesque bungalows provide comfortable accommodation of three different categories of Classic Bungalows, Relax Bungalows, and Comfort, each bungalow including mosquito nets, a European toilet and a so-called Mandi, a traditional Indonesian bath using a small container to scoop water out of a large container and pour water over the body, and a terrace. This is the perfect holiday resort for guests who are looking for recreation, passionate divers, and those who want to learn to dive!
