News from Metita Resort
What’s happening on Metita Island? The latest update and hottest news – you will always find it here!
Date: 23rd April 2022
After the BOOT in Düsseldorf could not take place this year, we are now presenting ourselves to the public for the first time in Friedrichshafen at INTERDIVE.
You can visit us there from 22 – 25 September 2022 at stand 203 in hall B5.
It would be wonderful if we could meet you in person then!
There will also be some fine trade fair treats 😉
As Indonesia is slowly opening its borders -there are already seven airports where the VOA (Visa on Arrival) for tourists is issued upon entry- we don’t want to miss the opportunity to support you in your post-Corona holiday planning. Finally, for the first time and exclusively, Metita bracelets and key rings will be available here. Stop by and be among the first to wear the handmade gold piece on your wrist!
We have moved in!
Date: 10th April 2022
Metita has its first residents: Carolin and Steven with son Joshua and the team of pioneers who have been with us from the beginning and have helped to build the Metita Resort.
At this point, a huge thank you to our team of currently 8 people who show such great commitment and make the most valuable contribution. Without you guys we wouldn’t be standing here today.
Welcome on Board! Our new Speedboats have arrived.
Date: 01st March 2022
With a little delay they are finally here: our new speedboats – Metita 02 and Metita 03.
Both boats are equipped with 2x 100 hp engines to transport our guests quickly and comfortably to dive sites, tours or the airport.
We have already tested it: from Metita Resort to the jetty it takes only 9 minutes with our little speedboat! This means a complete transfer time to the airport of about 25 minutes only!
Both boats are equipped with toilet and freshwater shower. Our dive boat, Metita 02, is designed for a maximum of 18 divers, and the speedboat, Metita 03, can be used for transfers and tours as well as for dive trips with a maximum of 12 participants.
BOOT Show 2022
Date: 05th November 2021
Save the date!
From 22 – 30 January 2022 we will present ourselves to the public for the first time and we would be super happy to meet you in person!
You can find us at booth E27 in hall 12.
Our dive centre is ready!
Date: 27th October 2021
In our 101 sqm dive centre our diving guests will find everything their heart desires.
A spacious 40 sqm drying room offers individual compartments for each diver, so that nothing gets mixed up. A fan and the open wooden structure of the walls guarantee good ventilation.
In addition, there is a separate room for our brand new rental equipment from mares. Besides ABCs, wetsuits, BCDs and regulators, dive computers and lamps can also be rented here.
To keep everything in good shape, we have our own small workshop where our equipment is professionally maintained.
As a treat for the photographers and videographers among us, we have set up an air-conditioned camera room that offers individual camera stations with bright lamps, multiple sockets for charging the acus and a tray for storing small parts. A specially installed diving cylinder can be used to dry housings and lamps
The main building is taking shape.
Date: 10th September 2021
The main building will be the central place of stay of the Metita Beach & Dive Resort. It will not only house the reception and the office, but also our spacious kitchen wing, consisting of a dirty kitchen where meat, fish and vegetables are cleaned, the main kitchen, a patisserie, a cool room and a kitchen storage. Here, the most delicious delights are prepared for our guests with organically grown ingredients from our own kitchen garden.
The reception area is also home to our small but beautiful boutique, where we offer local handicrafts as well as our own Metita collection and organic care products such as sun creams, lotion, soap etc for sale. So don’t worry if you run out of shampoo!
The restaurant and lounge with billiard table and bar is a completely open wooden structure that offers uninterrupted views of the beach and sea. In front of the lounge lies our wonderful swimming pool, which is suitable for diving courses in the deepest area and also offers small children the opportunity to splash around in the cool water in the shallow area.
We knew it!
Date: 03rd July 2021
Many times we have been looking for them, we were always sure that they must exist in Morotai Marine Park, but so far we have always been disappointed.
Now we have found them!
This makes our divers’ hearts beat faster and puts a smile on our faces 🙂
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!
