About Alami

Alami Alor Dive Resort is located in Alor Island’s Kalabahi Bay and was designed with avid scuba divers in mind. Our goal was to create a small and personal dive resort in an area with exceptional diversity and beauty in the marine environment while having that “off the beaten path” and authentic Indonesian feeling.

The resort is now focused not only on hosting scuba divers, but also adventurous snorkelers and marine life photographers. After 5 seasons we have built up a great team of 30 local staff, experienced management, and we are now building a sister resort to Alami Alor at a new location on Alor Island which will be a great addition.

Groundbreaking | Alami Alor

During our time working in the dive industry in other and more well known parts of Indonesia we used to visit Alor for holiday. We were seeking out an off the beaten path to spend our break time relaxing and diving in a place that felt unspoilt. We found that we kept returning to Alor.  When we decided to take the next step and create our own dive resort, Alor was naturally top of our list. For us, Alor always had that great at home feeling as the local people were so welcoming and friendly, the landscape unique and wild, plus the reefs and muck diving absolutely amazing and diverse. After the year of scouting and obtaining land for our new resort location plus our initial planning and designs we moved on to site and broke ground to start building our dive & stay resort.

Grand Opening | Alami Alor

The original 8 guest resort was ready to open just in time for the annual diving season in 2015. We welcomed our first guests and had a great year making new relationships with guests and our agent partners, plus exploring and further learning about the local environment.

Resort Addition | Alami Alor

After the success of our first 2 seasons and increase in guest occupancy numbers, we expanded the resort by adding a few more guest bungalows and adding another dive boat to bring our number of guests up to12. This is as we have it today and plan for the future as we feel it is the perfect size for feeling that we created and that makes Alami so special.

A New Location

Rather than dramatically change the feeling at Alami by becoming a larger resort, we decided to explore another location on Alor Island that would be different enough to where we could still give our guests an “Alami” experience, but have an exciting change of scenery, access to further out dive sites, and more amenities. We found a beautiful spot for our new off-grid sister resort in south Alor.
