Patuno Resort Wakatobi
Reviewed 12 June 2017

Patuno Wakatobi Resort gave a good first impression for me. Good view and good landscape.
The reception was nice as well and helpful. However, please do lower your expectations. As (perhaps) it is the only big resort around the island of Wangi-Wangi, the service was not excellence.
I had a standard room, since I booked via dive operator in Jakarta and this is the resort they picked. Please note this is not a complaint. Just a mere experience I've had. The standard room was enough. It was a clean for my standard. No mosquito, no bed bug, everything was exceptional for me. However, standard rooms location were located far from the front office. When I say it was far, IT WAS FAR. More than 300 metres, I reckon. My dive operator always dropped me using car to my room. So, I hope you have the big picture.

The breakfast was enough to give your energy in the morning. I had dinner once in their restaurant, it was okay. Not exceptionally good though.

Overall my opinions are as follow:
- If you have the dough, ask for cottage room. It is closer to the frobt office, so it is easier for you to access when you need something.

- No room service. Which can cause a bit of problem when you're hungry in the middle of the night.

- The resort is a bit run down. They really need to refurbish all room and start thinking about accessibility gor their guests.

- SOP like warm greetings, smile and so on from their staff needs to be improve.

- It was not a bad experience, but improvement needed to give the guest maximum experience.

I stayed here with my family for four nights for business meeting. From airport the resort was about 15 minutes. The resort area was very big. Me and my family stayed at a room with balcony facing to the sea. The room was big enough even after we added one extra bed. Our sleep was comfort. There was a jetty juts above the sea. Here was the best place to spend time and talk with friends.
Unfortunately weather was too bad when we stay so we couldn't go snorkeling. But there was a swimming pool that actually sea water dammed behind the resort area. We swim and playing cano there. To spend time we also went to city and Bajo Traditional Village.
The breakfast, lunch, dinner was OK but there was not many choice of menu. Room service took very long time even only for fried banana and coffee.
Anyway, overall we still enjoy our stay. On last day finally the weather was good enough and we could go snorkeling at spot Pantai Cemara, around 10 minutes from resort. Before flying back in the morning we went snorkeling again to another spot that called colloseum, also near Pantai Cemara.
This is not a perfect resort, but the best in Wangiwangi Island, Wakatobi.

The room was huge, the bathroom is so big I'm sure I can hold a party in there. Beds are comfortable. Could do with a little more cleaning and better TV reception. Otherwise, they have good seafood and the service is good. They helped us arrange boats in the nearby public beach to see dolphins in the morning. The dolphins are especially nice because they're still out at 8AM and very close to the beach (5-10 minutes by small motorboat), unlike other places that require you to wake up before sunrise to see dolphins. Plus, the public beach is also free to snorkel in.

I stayed in Patuno Resort one night in November 2016.
The Standard rooms are big, clean and quiet.
In my room, the air conditioner was broken. It was running in full power mode, I could not even turn it off. After informing the reception, a service guys showed up and after 2 hours, everything was fixed.
The standard rooms are quite far from the reception and restaurant, nearly 1km to walk.
The breakfast buffet was my personel highlight.
It seems that there are quite often big tourist groups. This is not my style of holidays - so I checked out after one night.

One more thing: in the Trip Advisor App, it seems that this place is quite near to the center of Wanci, the main city on Wangi Wangi where you reach by boat - this is not true; it's about 20 km from Wanci.

Room Tip: choose a room with sea view. the "cave view rooms" are not first choice.
