Stone by stone and board by board - Metita Resort grows
Date: 30th May 2021
Not only Corona keeps us in suspense, we here are also happy every day about the construction progress of our dream, which is called Metita Beach & Dive Resort.
The service buildings are as good as finished and the dive centre and the main building can already be entered – a three-dimensional idea that until now only existed on the computer and in our heads is becoming reality. An indescribable feeling that we would like to share with you at least a little bit.
If only you could be there, we could sit on the beach of Metita at sunset, make a bonfire and toast this wonderful moment with a Bintang…
The next wave is yours!
Date: 16th March 2021
That Morotai is also no slouch as a surf destination is still a little secret, something the local surf community is very happy about. So they have the great waves to themselves. But slowly the word is spreading! This year’s Toguruga Surf Competition, held for the first time from 15 to 16 March, is not entirely innocent of this! Even professionals from Bali were present to take a closer look at the wave conditions. Conclusion: Test passed!
So if you need an alternative to diving, snorkelling, sunbathing, sightseeing and wellness, this is it: get on your board and get into the water! The next wave is yours!
The groundbreaking ceremony
Date: 08th February 2021
Let’s mark 8 February 2021 in red in our calendars! Finally, after two years of Indonesian bureaucracy and the last months of surveying and mapping, the time had come: the construction company arrived! The first cut of the spade is done! To make the spirits happy, we all held a small prayer ceremony together.
Now we look forward, delighted with each stone that is placed on top of the other and each building that will slowly take shape. What excitement!
Finally, the starting signal for the work on Metita is given!
Date: 15th October 2020
We had to be patient for a long time until finally the whole approval procedure – additionally slowed down by Corona – was completed. Now the time has finally come!
We have already started with the work on our land and have cleared the undergrowth a bit, so that the plot is better accessible. For the official part we still have to set the boundary stones and then we start to stake out the buildings and then ….. Ground-breaking ceremony!
We are very happy and hope you are happy with us!
Morotai Marine Park
Date: 01st July 2020
One of our heart’s wishes came true!
Since 2017 WCS has been working together with marinechange and other organisations to make the islands south-west of Morotai a marine nature reserve. After many meetings, discussions, surveys, planning and changes, the government resolution was finally officially signed on 10 June 2020.
The islands from Pulau Rao on the north to Metita on the south end now form the 65,892 hectare Morotai Marine Park. It is divided into different zones, including areas for sustainable fishing and restricted access protection zones for special marine species such as dugongs.
What we have fought for: The waters around Metita fall within the tourism zone, where water sports are allowed but fishing is not. What excellent prospects for the now undisturbed flourishing life on our house reef!
