Angel Island Resort


Angel Island Resort - West of Labuanbajo, Flores, Indonesia

Angel Island Resort has been created to give discerning guests a beautiful, peaceful place to lay their heads after a wonderful day in Komodo National Park. Each villa has a waste water system that allows the flowers and plants in your garden bathroom to take out the nitrates from the grey water and enable us to recycle this to water our gardens. The Water in the resort is made from Sea water with our Desalination plant, so as not to take any water from the small water table that exists on the island.

We did not destroy any trees in the building of the resort and have planted many more to enhance the natural beauty of the island, we have already see an increased amount of birdlife on the island. The Island is a breeding area for the migratory Pacific Black Duck during the months of October – April these are now protected on the island. The island is also a turtle nesting area during the same months, any nests found will be closed off to protect the nest from being trampled inadvertently and are now of course protected from local egg collectors.

Angel Islands birds were indiscriminately killed by local poachers, but they are now fully protected. We have the local Government license to protect the islands reefs and beaches, no fishing or collecting of marine life is allowed around the island.

Reefseekers Diving has been operating in Indonesia for over 16 years, our passion for Diving in this area is still as strong, with this in mind we wanted to offer a complete package to our guests and provide beautiful Accommodation in a friendly, peaceful atmosphere to compliment the Fabulous surrounding area of Komodo National Park.

Our eco-friendly resort is set on the beautiful peaceful island of Bidadari, located on the West coast of Flores Island, in the Eastern part of Indonesia. Indulge yourself and stay with us on Angel Island, 10 villas set in gardens of Hibiscus flowers in 15 hectares , on a private island on the edge of Komodo National Park, with 3 white sand beaches, 20 minutes by boat out of Labuanbajo. Flores.

Our Vision was to set up an Eco friendly Resort to compliment Reefseekers Diving and provide the ultimate place for Relaxation with accommodation in a peaceful setting for Divers, snorkelers or guests who just want to chill.

To cause as little negative impact to the Island itself and to protect the surrounding reef and beaches. To secure the local Government license to protect the reefs and beaches of Angel island, to stop destructive fishing practices, reef gleaning, capturing of local wild birds including the Pacific black duck which migrates here to breed and taking of white sand from beaches

To protect the local flora and fauna, to plant more endemic trees and plants to encourage the continued healthy habitat for birds, butterflies and insects.

To employ only staff from the local areas and enable staff working in Bali in the Tourism industry to return back to their homes here in Flores to be closer to their families.

To help better inform our divers and snorkelers about good, safe diving practices and with our daily marine life briefings transfer our knowledge of the underwater water world.

To benefit the local communities

Angel Island resort is a small island to the West of Labuanbajo, Flores, which is in the Lesser Sundas province, East of Bali

The name Indonesia has its roots in two Greek words: “Indos” meaning Indian and “Nesos” which means islands. It is an appropriate description of the archipelago as there are estimated to be a total of 17,508 islands, of which only about 6,000 are inhabited, stretching for 5,150 km between the Australian and Asian continental mainland’s and dividing the Pacific and Indian Oceans at the Equator.

Five main islands and 30 smaller archipelagoes are home to the majority of the population.

The main islands are Sumatra (473,6O6, Kalimantan 1539,400, Sulawesi l 189,216 sq. km), Irian Jaya (421,981 sq. km), and last but not least Java (132,187, home to 70 percent of the country’s population. Indonesia shares Irian Jaya with Papua New Guinea and two thirds of the island of Kalimantan with Malaysia and Borneo. The islands and people of Indonesia constitute the fourth most populated nation in the world. As a democratic republic, Indonesia is divided into 32 provinces, special territories and classified geographically into four groups.

First are the Greater Sundas, made up of the larger islands of Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan and Sulawesi. Second are the Lesser Sundas, consisting of smaller islands from Bali eastward to Timor. Third is Maluku which includes all the islands between Irian Jaya and Sulawesi. The fourth and final group is lrian Jaya in the extreme eastern part of the country.

NATIONAL PARK ( Komodo National Park

The National park of Komodo is one of two National heritage sites in Indonesia and was set up in 1980 to protect the unique species the Komodo Dragon, it is run by the Director General of Forest Conservation and Nature Conservation (PHPA). The park now encompasses the surrounding waters which are home to one of the richest fish faunas in the world. Also involved in the Park in the US based non profit organization The Nature Conservancy (TNC) they are assisting the Parks authorities with the development of the marine component of the Park’s 25 year management plan. The park includes 41,000 ha of land and 132,000 ha of marine waters.

The diversity of life in the park is enough to more than satisfy anyone coming to observe the life above or below the waters, be it for any type of Flora and Fauna, the Park and surrounding area has wonders abound.

THE KOMODO DRAGONS (Varanus komodoensis)

You really feel like you are stepping back into a lost world that time has forgotten when you first encounter a Komodo Dragon, these huge monsters belong to the Protected Species Varanus Komodoensis and are the largest lizards in the world, they are meat eaters, although you can be tricked into thinking that these animals are harmless by the way they lazily lounge in the mid day sun renewing their energy.

Once they start moving they can run faster than a human over a short distance and one swipe of their tail breaks Deer and Water Buffalo legs, or a bite from them leaves the victim full of deadly bacteria that spreads throughout the body, after a few days they will collapse and are instantly jumped upon by the stalking dragon (not a very pleasant way to go).


Our Dive Team are committed to giving you the experience of a lifetime whilst diving with us in Komodo National Park. Whether you are a new diver or a Salty sea dog, we have dive sites to suit every experience level

Getting to the Dive Sites
A leisurely journey through Komodo National parks many islands with beautiful views of deserted beaches, mountains, mangroves and sand banks.

Our traditional boats have plenty of shade and also places to catch the sun, we usually leave around 8am then after 2-3 dives and lunch return to between 4:30- 5:30 depending on the sites we have visited. Boats are equipped with Radio, Oxygen, hand phone and First aid and comfy mattresses.

What you can expect

A days diving includes 2/3 dives with a Padi Divemaster, lunch and refreshments.

Marine Life Briefing Our Divemasters will give an informative talk about the local Marine life on the journey out to the dive site, a different topic every day you dive, we’ve lots to learn about our oceans and these briefings help us to appreciate all that swims, crawls or just sits in our Seas.

JohnbriefingWe are here as visitors to the underwater world and expect our guests to treat the homes of all marine life the same you would treat the home of a friend, we have a strictly no touch, no take policy.

When to dive
We dive the whole year around, with the exception of a few days during the rainy season (Jan-Mar) where we can not get out of the harbour because of strong winds, this used to be always in February, but, over the last couple of years February has seen us with wonderful weather and diving, the weather is changing all over the world and is very hard to predict now.

Water Temperature
The temperature of the water varies from 24 to 31 degrees Celsius, in the Southern dive sites upwellings can be as cold as 16 degrees from the Indian Ocean.

What to wear
Everyone feels the cold to different degrees, but we generally recommend at least 3mm full suits,

Rental Equipment
rental equipment is available to divers:

• Oceanic Regulators and gauges
• Buddy BCD
• Prescription Masks minus 1.5 up to minus 8
• 5 and 3mm suits, long and short
• Boots and Fins
• Computers

Hints and Tips for New divers
To get the most enjoyment out of your diving, it’s important to not only have good buoyancy but also the right amount of weight on your belt, if you are over weighted your position in the water will not be streamlined and you will have to use a lot of air to fill your Bcd, which will lift the front of your body, while leaving the lower half of your body sinking to the bottom, thus endangering yourself from stings, cuts etc., to damaging the fragile reef. Your breathing should be as relaxed as possible and remember, everyone varies in the amount of air they use, the most important thing is to enjoy the dive. The equipment should fit you well, not too big or too small and it should feel comfortable. Try not to use your hands too much as you will use a lot of energy and get tired quickly, most of the work should be done by your legs and fins.

New Mask
If you have a new mask always remember to clean off the silicone from the lens, with a little white toothpaste rubbed around the inside and outside of the lens and of course the normal Spit before you use it (Who said diving was a glamorous sport) Do not pull the strap too tight as this only distorts the skirt of the mask and is likely to let in more water.

If you are prone to ear infections (outside the ear) always wash out your ears with fresh water and dry them thoroughly, you can buy medication specific to drying out your ears which will help a lot. If you get an inner ear infection, you will need to take antibiotics (specific for middle ear infections), it’s good to get some from your doctor before you travel. Always take care to equalize your ears gently as you slowly descend, it’s a good idea to mention to the Dive guide that you normally have problems equalizing, so that they are aware that you might need a little extra time.

Haven’t dived for a while
If you haven’t dived in a while and have lost a lot of your confidence and skills, always do a Scuba tune up or Refresher course, once you have gone through the skills again you will really enjoy the dive much more and have time to look at the marine life, instead of worrying about your mask, buoyancy or whatever, it really is worth taking the extra time to do this half day course



If you have ever wondered what it’s like to float motionless beside a coral reef and watch the marine life go about their daily business, why not try an introduction to diving with this half day experience and find out for yourself. Just the thrill of being able to breathe underwater and the peace and quiet of this world make it enough reason to try. There is the amazing marine life you will see, from the shy clown fish hiding in its anemone to the ever hungry turtles enjoying lunch on the reef, it’s only a short step away.


If you haven’t dived for a while and are feeling a little rusty, sign up for the Scuba review with a Divemaster or Instructor. Refresh your memory of the basic theory and tables with an easy to use self study booklet, practise underwater skills until you feel safe and at ease under the water, relaxed and ready for your fun dives.


The first certification level with Padi, this 4/5-day course will teach you all the basic theory and skills you need to know to dive safely. After classroom sessions with video presentations and shallow water skills practice you will be taken on 4 amazing boat dives to complete this fun course. We take pride in the ability of our new divers so you can be sure your course will be of the highest quality. We have the theory books in most languages. After this course you will receive your internationally recognised certification, which is valid for life.

If you don’t want to spend precious holiday time in a classroom or shallow water think about an open water referral. Your theory and pool work can be done at home on those cold winter nights, leaving you to do the exciting open water dives here with us in the warm tropical waters of Indonesia. Check out this possibility with your local Padi Dive Centre.

If you want to get certified but don’t quite have the time, what
about this certification course. 2 days is all you require to be a certified diver able to dive to a maximum of 12 metres, this course gives you an International certification after completing some academics, shallow water skill development and open water boat dives.

For those of you who would like to try out some special areas of diving beyond entry level. Minimum of 2 dives, this course gives you an introduction to specialised areas such as deep, navigation, night, multi-level, naturalist, photography, drift and many others. You will spend a lot of time diving an only a little time in the classroom.

If you want to go on to learn more about diving, take the next step and become an Advanced Diver. This course is about getting into the water and learning more under the direct supervision of an Instructor. There is some theory but no quizzes or exams (”Thank Goodness!” we hear you say!) Five dives are required. You are required to do a Deep dive (max. 30mts)and a Navigation dive, where you will learn how to use the compass properly. You then choose at least 3 optional modules from the following list:

Night Diving
Multi-level Diving
Drift Diving
Underwater Naturalist
Underwater Photography
Boat Diving
Search and Recovery Diver
Peak performance buoyancy

This course can be done as soon as you finish the Open Water course, there is no need to wait.

This one day course teaches you medic first aid procedures plus CPR and is open to non-divers. First aid is a very important aspect of everyday life as who knows when you could be first to come across an injured person. The skills learned during this course could help save someone’s life.

Definitely hard work but a lot of laughs as well during our Rescue course. You will be taught a wide range of skills, from helping a tired diver to actually managing Rescue Scenes including the recovery of lost divers and unconscious divers. This is definitely the first step to a different way of diving. You start to think about others instead of just your own diving pleasure. An excellent course, especially if you plan to dive in areas where a Divemaster does not supervise you. A current First Aid Certificate is a prerequisite to obtaining the Rescue Diver certification.

If you are interested in a particular aspect of diving, why not learn all you can about it with a Speciality Course? Whether it’s PHOTOGRAPHY to get you on the road to rivalling Jacque Cousteu, NATURALIST to see what really is going on down there (fish that change sex????), DEEP, what is Narcosis and what does it feel like? or MULTI-LEVEL, Oh, so that’s how the wheel works! Learn how to plan your dives for maximum enjoyment, there will be a Speciality to suit you. Another hands on experience course could be exactly what you are looking for.

After your Rescue certification there are two options for further education. The first is the “amateur” route to “Master Scuba Diver”. After completing five Specialities of your choice, you will be awarded Master Scuba Diver certification, the highest Non-professional PADI level.

Do you want to turn your hobby and passion into a new profession, then this course will take you on to the first Professional level in the Padi System. In this course you will be taught how to assist an Instructor teaching different Padi courses and how to organise and guide certified divers on fun dives. This great learning experience will prepare you for the Padi Instructor course. Minimum of 2 weeks is required to complete this exciting and interesting course


Dive the best sites in Komodo National Park

Divers will be recommended dive sites to suit their experience. We are keen photographers and understand that a slow meander along the reef is what is required, to enable you to take in the breathtaking beauty that Komodo National Park has to offer, although currents can be present on some sites, we plan the dives to get the most enjoyment for every different level of diver.

North Komodo – Gili lawa Laut Area :

Crystal Rock is marked by rocks which just break the surface at high tide, a wonderful dive site with lots of coral of all varieties, a dive to see big and small marine life, white tip reef sharks, Giant trevallys with schools of fusiliers, hawksbill turtles and often an eagle ray can be spotted gliding in the current, a good place to spot many nudibranchs, scorpion fish and octopus, sometimes we get a quick glimpse of dolphins swimming in the current and checking us out.

Full Moon further north is a submerged sea mound. This site is covered in many varieties of hard corals, heading down, bat fish will come to greet you and try to swim between your fins and catch your bubbles as you exhale, you find Hawksbill turtles and processions of bright luminous blue fusiliers, it’s not a surprise to see white and Black tip sharks checking out the action for their next meal, a couple of big grey sharks hang out deep on this site and sometimes come into the shallower depths, dolphins again have been seen here, good place to see blue ribbon eels and Crocodile fish.

Lighthouse Reef A couple of Huge Napoleon wrasse make their home here, designated as a Coral Trout aggregation area there are certainly some huge specimens patrolling the waters, a huge underwater rock is the entry point of the dive going down to the depths, we swim along the wall and gradually make our way up into the shallows with groups of red tooth triggerfish and Palette Surgeons, often Mantas come into the shallows to be cleaned, you find a comfortable spot, then wait for the procession to begin.

The Cauldron as the name might suggest to you, it is really something to see when the current is running, it looks like the top of a boiling pot, once the current abates, we drop down into the centre of the cauldron onto a sandy bottom at 24mts the edges of the cauldron are rock faces with huge ledges gouged into them covered in every colour of hard and soft corals you can imagine, Black and White tip sharks play here, with huge giant, big eye and blue fin trevallys stalking us and glaring at us with their grumpy faces.

Stingray City again the name suggests lots of blue spotted mask rays and blue spotted fan tail rays, a big group of bumphead parrot fish live here and 2 giant frog fish, off the steeper slopes we often see white tip reef sharks, lots of anemones with their colourful clown fish, sometimes Mantas feeding in the shallow water.

Coral Garden Steep wall turning into a slope of coral then up to a sandy ledge with big coral heads leading up to a wonderful coral garden in the shallows, we often see white tips sleeping in the sand with many varieties of rays including jenkins whip rays, porcupine rays, blue spotted and of course everyones favourite the Manta. Good place to find crocodile fish and leaf scorpion fish.

Aquarium a ledge at 5 mts shelters us from the current we stay a while and watch the fusiliers feed, we’ve often had manta moments here with them staying most of the dive and feeding in the current then swooping in to take a look at you, we spent one dive in the same place here for 105 mins, never moved and only went up as we were running low on air; but if it’s quiet, we swim over into the current and take a ride to end up in a sandy plateau at about 12mts and spend the dive searching the coral heads for leaf fish and critters of every variety, white tips sleep in the sand with the smaller ones hiding under table corals, bumphead parrot fish always seen here, hawksbill turtles, pipe fish and garden eels popping up from the sand like a field of wheat.

Gold passage a drift dive starting in the shelter of the bay with slope leading to a steep wall, then moving along to catch the current which sweeps us along at some rate of knots passing giant trevallys, bumphead parrot fish, schools of fusilers to end up on a sheltered coral slope to look for the crocodile fish, leaf fish and any other little critters that catch our eye.


  East of Komodo Island :

Sebayur kecil walls and slopes of every kind of coral you can imagine, with a wide variety of marine life to be seen at this site, a great place for macro photography with leaf scorpion, Ornate ghost pipe fish, robust pipe fish, banded pipe fish, blue ringed octopus, crocodile fish to name a few.

Tetawa Besar
Orange Grove a gentle slope runs the length of this dive site with an orange soft coral garden changing to hard coral along towards the end of the slope, lots of schooling fusiliers, usual to see a lot of Hawksbill turtles and white tip reef sharks, lots of Mantas in the rainy season and a huge variety of beautiful coloured nudibranchs.
Manta Corner another nice coral covered slope with the hope of spotting mantas in the rainy season, nice coral with leaf scorpion fish, blue ribbon eels, turtles, white tips and lots of nice coral heads in the shallow to check out the smaller critters.

Tetawa Kecil
a small island that is in an area that gets a lot of current in Komodo so not an easy site, but it’s another that is among one of the many world class sites here, schools of pelagic fish patrol the waters, a huge school of bat fish live here near a coral encrusted overhang, Napoleon wrasse, bumphead parrot fish with nurse sharks and bamboo sharks found hiding in cracks and crevices in the coral encrusted boulders, the shallows again are a vibrant colourful picture of hard corals that hide the sea snakes, coral file fish and baby sharks.

Batu Bolong
A small rock outcrop with a hole through it is the surface mark of another world class site, these giant slabs of rock which disappear into the depths are an amazing sight to see, covered with every form of marine life and patrolled by giant trevally, Napoleon Wrasse, sharks and turtles with many pelagics sweeping in to check out the divers.

Siaba Kecil Beautiful coral slope with currents along the edges which bring in the bigger fish, lots of life, water is sometimes chilly here, black tips, white tips, barracudas and a host of nudibranchs and flat worms.

Airstrip the strangest dive site in the park! a very long stone rubble road stretching forever along the East coast of Komodo, it gently slopes off and has big coral heads at intervals along the road, we tuck in behind these to hide from the current and to check out the marine life there, then take off in the current again, often seeing manta rays, white and black tip sharks, nurse sharks and bamboo sharks under coral ledges and one sighting of a leopard shark, dugongs have also been seen here, it is a manta cleaning and feeding station, bumphead parrot fish like the area and many strange nudibranchs can be found.


Batu Tiga
3 huge rocks in the middle of the strait between Rinca and Komodo island marks the spot of this site, current swept, it offers the chance to see everything from tiny pygmy sea horses to sharks and barracudas, not a site to be taken lightly and sometimes totally un-diveable, but well worth it if you can get in, the topography of the site is really amazing to see and covered in short encrusting coral, no other coral could take the currents, this I think is the most challenging site to dive in park, situated in the strait between Komodo, Padar and Rinca it gets water movement hitting it from many different angles. Two huge fish eagles have their home on the rocks.

Nidihang A coral covered steep slope, Napoleons like to hang here, many scorpion and nudibranchs amongst the coral, bamboo and nurse sharks hide in the rock crevacies, one of our sightings of a Dugong was at this site in the beautiful shallows, another site that has very strong, strange currents.
Rinca Area

Penga Dead mans island. Stunning coral covers the reefs of this small island, sea snakes, turtles, frog fish, Leaf fish, nudibranchs, long nose hawk fish, octopus sometimes Eagle rays and a wide variety of the usual reef fish.

Wainilu Critter hunt special at this sandy slope, frog fish, seahorses, juvenile Zebra bat fish, mandarin fish, picture dragonets, ghost pipe fish, ribbon eels, zebra crabs, fire urchins, you never know what will pop up.


Diving The South, Pulau Padar :

This site at the southern side of Padar, is often affected by big swells coming in from the Indian ocean, cooler water and visibility usually not as good as the more Northern sites, it has an interesting topography of sheer black walls, swim throughs’ and caves, with lots of interesting hidden places to find strange and wonderful critters, Giant Trevallys. hawksbill turtles, nurse and bamboo sharks hang out here, sea apples and many varieties of nudibranchs.

Nudibranchs Galore
This site was found by Ernest who decided to drop in and take a look, the amount of different Nudibranchs was unbelievable, definitely a superb site for Macro photographers. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore.

Three Sisters
This site has underwater mountains coming to within 5 mts of the surface on one pinnacle. Covered in life of soft and hard corals, very beautiful site, with an abundance of marine life of every variety, white tip reef sharks, bumphead parrot fish, frog fish, sea apples, nudibranchs, again cooler waters from the Indian ocean with reduced visibility most times, but definitely worth a visit.

Nusa Kode
This small island in the bay off the southern coast of Rinca has many different dive sites, some sheltered and some open to the elements of strong currents and cold upwellings, but all this adds up to some fantastic sites, with a profound wealth of small and large sea life which will leave you totally in awe.

Cannibal Rock
Another Macro photographers dream, this sea mound is home to vast amounts of invertebrates and wonderful soft coral, but it can be a bit chilly here with the area catching the upwellings from the Indian Ocean, frog fish, ghost pipe fish, octopus, nudibranchs, turtles, stingrays and the wonderful crazy looking sea apples.

Nurdins spirit Dropping into a dark sandy bottom it looks like there is nothing to see, but you will be amazed at the amount of life to be discovered at this site, frog fish, nudibranchs, sea pens, sea apples, leaf fish, rays, ghost pipe fish, seahorses, your camera battery will run out before you end the dive.


We are lucky that we only have a Rainy season and not a Monsoon season, so an occasional afternoon or evening downpour is what we usually get during our Rainy season of November – March, Our dry season really starts around end of April/May and ends with a sweltering October just before the rains start.

You can dive the whole year around, the month for wind is usually August and heavier rain is February, but over the last 2 years Feb has not seen much rain?! The sun is fierce in Flores so do bring plenty of sun screen and a hat.
