The opportunity of a lifetime awaits. Located in far East Indonesia in the heart of the Coral Triangle, the Widi Reserve is a coral atoll archipelago boasting 100-plus uninhabited, pristine tropical islands fringed by 150 kilometers of powder white sand beaches, thriving coral reefs, and private, deep-sea, nutrient-rich waters.
This island chain is one of the most intact coral atoll ecosystems left on earth and an animal kingdom of epic proportions, home to hundreds of rare and endangered species including Blue Whales, Whale Sharks, 600 documented species of marine mammals, fish, birds, insects and lizards, and species yet to be discovered. Separated not only by space and time, but by extraordinary natural beauty and total privacy, it is one of the most breathtaking properties anywhere on Earth.
Set within the 315,000-hectare (780,000-acre) Marine Protected Area, 10,000 hectares (25,000 acres) of rainforests, mangroves, turquoise lagoons, lakes, and beaches await for potential eco-conscious development. With a vision for private members, special guests, and top conservationists wishing to experience one of earth’s last great wildernesses, the Widi Reserve is a secluded, other-worldly paradise.
