Distinguished for its abundance of unique macro critters. This includes an extraordinary range of nudibranchs, hairy frogfish, ghost pipefish, and rare species such as the blue-ringed octopus.

Sampai jumpa (see you soon)!

We regret to inform you that we had no other option but to close our Weda Resort at Halmahera. The impact on nature from exponentially growing industrial activities has made Eco-tourism in the area unfeasible for the time being. However, our foundation will continue its educational initiatives and kindergarten programs. If you stay with us, you directly contribute to our education and conservation projects.
