Reconnect isn't your typical luxury resort, it's more of an authentic island living experience.

The resort itself looks great.

But you don't go there for the luxury.

You go there for the experience of living on a beautiful remote island, far away from everything else.

The resort is actually quite simple.

I stayed at the Beach Villa room, which is the highest standard room there is.

And all the meals were included.

I had a snorkeling set to explore around, and really enjoyed the beauty of the reef.

I stayed for 3 nights, but next time I should stay for one or two weeks.

Other positive point, the island is the closest from mainland (Ampana), so you get the remote feeling but you can reach there in 30 minutes only!

Will definitely come back

I've been fortunate enough to travel to many great destinations and Reconnect is easily in my top 10%. Like many good things in life, a trip to Reconnect is earned - the journey to get there as a European traveler is probably the longest one can undertake. Getting to the island of Buka Buka itself is a sensational expedition filled with tasty experiences, like embarking on a ten-seat flight over the Central Sulawesi coastal reef or being escorted by a large pod of dolphins on the boat ride to the island. Once you set foot on Buka Buka, a new journey begins. One that is filled with breathtaking scenery - both above and below sea level - and extraordinary adventure. This is a unique opportunity to experience island life, with all its surprises and unexpected gifts, while being cared for by the warm and professional Reconnect team. This place is unlike any other I’ve seen, and I leave it with far more than just a new exotic passport stamp and few stunning snapshots.

Reconnect is truly a life changing experience. Having lived on different islands, there's a peace on Buka Buka you can't find anywhere else. I recommend anyone looking for something not touristy and more connected to nature to give it a try!

Totally recommended. The resort is amazing, beautiful beaches, white sand, lovely staff and fresh fish and coconut. The owner is super friendly and genius guy with a lot of energy and cool ideas.
We will surely back!
