Love is in the air... and under the sea!

Love under the sea - pair of butterfly fish at Bawah Reserve Indonesia

“One can't fail to fall in love with Bawah. The colours are intoxicating; the shipwrecked setting wildly romantic.” Tatler

We always appreciate kind words written about our resort and we agree that our islands are truly some of the most romantic spots on the planet. We recently learned that it’s not just our guests who find Bawah Reserve the ultimate romantic setting but some of our sea life too!

As an archipelago of six islands, our three marine conservation lagoons provide the perfect sanctuary for the rich sea life that live there. What you might not know is that some of the worlds monogamous marine species can be spotted flourishing in our reef.  Let us introduce you to our resident sea lovers – meet the committed marine life who find their perfect partners and stay together forever.

 

Seahorses

P5040010
“Seahorses are truly unique, and not just because of their unusual equine shape.  Unlike most other fish, they are monogamous and mate for life. Rarer still, they are among the only animal species on Earth in which the male bears the unborn young.” National Geographic



Angelfish

“The monogamous sweethearts form pair bonds that can last throughout their lives. Always presenting an unwavering united front, these lovers are rarely seen alone. They defend their territory and their bond from neighbouring pairs that threaten to break up the family, till death do them part. Once a bond is made, the couple lives, travels, and hunts
together. “ 30a

 

Butterflyfish

“Adult reef butterflyfishes often are found in pairs, suggesting monogamy and pair fidelity in the species. They spawn at dusk during a long, vigorous courtship. The pair circle each other, each fish head to tail until one fish breaks and darts off with the other close behind.”   Florida Museum

 

Coral Banded Shrimp

"In the wild, the Coral Banded Shrimp is nocturnal, hiding under ledges and in caves during the day and feeding at night. These shrimps live in monogamy and are somewhat territorial, defending an area of one to two meters in diameter against other crustaceans and in particular other Coral Banded Shrimps." The Spruce Pets

 

Hawkesbill Turtles

072A9625 Turtle Underwater

There is nothing more beautiful than swimming with sea turtles, watching them glide around the lagoon. A common sighting around Bawah Reserve is the Hawksbill turtle, often spotted around the jetty. 

“Research published shows that female hawksbill turtles mate at the beginning of the season and store sperm for up to 75 days to use when laying multiple nests on the beach. It also reveals that these turtles are mainly monogamous and don't tend to re-mate during the season”  Science Daily


Love is literally all around us! Book your romantic trip now.
