Frequently Asked Questions about
Reconnect - Private Island Resort

Booking process at Reconnect Island Resort

  • How to book your stay at Reconnect
    To book your stay, you can reach out to us directly on Whatsapp, or by Email. At the moment, we only take direct bookings, and advise you to book at least 1 month in advance to make sure we have availabilities. Bookings are to be paid in full at least 1 week before checking in.
  • When is the best season to come to Reconnect Island Resort on Buka Buka Island?
    Buka Buka Island enjoys a warm climate all-year-round, which allows Reconnect to be open at any time during the year. However, we do have what we call "musim barat", which translates by "west season", during which we usually have strong in-shore winds coming from the west. The west season is often between December and February, traditionally believed by local villagers to end for Chinese New Year. During west season, you can still come and visit us, but we ask you to be more flexible with your dates, because you might have to wait for the wind and waves to stop before we can bring you to the island.
  • What activities are available at Reconnect on Buka Buka Island?
    Once on the island, you can enjoy a wide range of activities such as: snorkeling, stand up paddle, kayaking, beach sports (volley, badminton, pingpong..), holy water trekking, boat trips around the Togean Islands, and more to come. Life on the island is also tailored around experiences, such as Overwater BBQ, Bajau Traditional Speargun Fishing, Romantic Dinner.. In a near future, we also plan to open our own Dive Center, so our guests can explore the beautiful coral reefs we have around the island.
  • Is Reconnect open for long term residency on Buka Buka Island?
    Especially since the pandemic started, a significant amount of people started to ask us if they can become long term residents of Buka Buka Island. We get it, a remote island is one of the best place to be, when the rest of the world is into lockdown, or any other form of chaos. However, because of everything involved with long term residencies, we first want to get to know you over the phone, and make sure it's a great fit for you to live here. If you're interested, you can reach out to Thomas on whatsapp, and he'll get in touch as soon as possible.
  • How can I invest? Can I build my own villa there?
    After we aired on national TV in Europe and Indonesia last year, a lot of people started to reach out, and ask how they could build their own place on the island. To preserve the beauty, nature and paradisiac vibe of Buka Buka Island, we decided to keep 90%+ of all the lands available for conservation. However, we are also open for limited and exclusive development, on a case by case basis. Everything we build has to be powered by the sun, function with water desalination and use natural materials as much as possible. Feel free to reach out on whatsapp or by email (hi@reconnect.id), to share your project, or ask any questions. Other investment opportunities will be shared here on our website.
