Alor Divers

Located between Flores and Sawoe Sea, Alor Archipelago is one of Indonesia’s last untouched frontiers. The main islands of Alor and Pantar and the strait between the two is a world class dive attraction. This intimate resort is situated on a perfect stretch of white sandy beach on Pantar Island . The resort is beautifully integrated into its natural surroundings and a wonderful base to explore the pristine Alor archipelago.

The eco-friendly resort boasts a friendly ambiance and incredible personalized service allowing a maximum number of 12 guests. The spacious thatched roof bungalows are built in the traditional Indonesian architectural style with large screened windows and high ceilings.  Shaded by swaying palm trees and perfectly situated to catch the cool sea breezes, the bungalows have no need air-conditioning.  Each bungalow has a large private verandah facing the sea, in room bathroom with hot and cold running water and 24 hour electricity.

The restaurant is a relaxing area to enjoy a drink or crack open a book. Three main meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are generally served buffet or family style and feature healthy produce from the local market as well as fresh fish caught by local fishermen. Complementary tea and coffee are available at all times and in the afternoon we offer a selection of sweet or savory snacks.

The coral reef diving in Alor is nothing short of delightful since reefs of Pantar Strait are some of the most conserved marine systems in Indonesia. Apart from the prolific coral growth and staggering color palette of corals, sponges and anemones, diving in Alor is also well known for great variety of reef fishes and rich macro fauna. Frogfish, leaf scorpionfish, pigmy sea horses, eels, sea snakes and great varieties of colorful nudibranches. Alor is a place for remarkable surprises by passing pelagics such as hammerheads, reef sharks, sunfish and even whales. Alor is becoming a muck diving destination as well. The volcanic black sand and coral rubble offer a perfect camouflage environment for unusual critters like Rhinophias, devil fish, hairy frog fish, sea moth, snake eel, zebra crab, coleman shrimp, solar powered nudibranch, harlequin pipefish, velvet and robust pipefish, different seahorses and many more.

Alor is easy to access with two airlines connecting Alor to Kupang many times a week (Lion Air and Trans Nusa). Kupang itself is daily connected to all major Indonesian cities. The Alor staff will welcome you upon arrival at Alor airport and from there it’s a 50 minute car drive from the airport followed by a 20 minute boat ride across Pantar Strait to reach the resort.
