The resort is very disappointing. This is not a destination for long haul travel and considering the time taken to get to the resort from Berau, 3 hours by boat (as well as the additional transfer costs - in excess of Rp. 3,000,000) it has little to offer a stay other than to those who live in the region. I...

This resort is definitely need maintenance, way too old. To me is about too pricey. But, the island is soooo beautiful with turquise color water. Perfect place to do waterbased activities.. snorkeling spot is next door..

Beach rooms are ugly with nasty insects ,generally not well maintained and cleaned Water villa simply does not worth the price Food is almost everyday the same and really questionable The dive guides were the only good...

As mentioned this property is beautifully located but unfortunately the water villas we stayed in, needing quite a bit of repairs and maintenance. Our water villa number 8 bed is truly bad, needing replacement - it is sunk in the middle of the bed. Toilet windows should be shaded for privacy. Rather dusty in some areas. Door can't be locked...

I stayed here based on so many good recommendations I received. It is located in Maratua island, almost 2 hours from Derawan island. I went there in February, with a non-stop high tide and big wave during my trip from Derawan to Maratua. Totally bad timing to travel to Maratua. The trip was paid off when we arrived, a very...

The cottages were built above the sea and to reach there, we must accross a long bridge from the beach. There were restaurants & cafe. whether you like diving or just snorkling, you don't have to bring the equipment along with you because the resort provide them to support your leisure time. Don't forget to bring your sunblock coz the...

The resort is rather overpriced, Rp.660.000/per person/night for beach chalet and Rp.1.1. mio per person/pernight for water villa. With this kind of price range I would expect a much better accommodation and amenities. The resort provides sunsilk sachet shampoo and small soap, the resort needs to improve on the amenity. Do not expect luxury on this resort on the price...

It's really a very beautiful island. Its white sand and clear green water is very inviting. Various types of amazing fish under the water. Even though the sun was very hot, but the thrill of swimming with hundreds of fish was fun. But it is quite difficult to find food here because the restaurant only serve visitors who stay overnight...

I had been twice visiting Maratua Island and the Maratua Resort, 2015 and 2011. To my opinion, this is one the best to visit 'sea attraction in the World' for diving,snorkeling,or just being in the beautiful sea and sky atmosphere alone, with friends or family like I did. The Maratua cottage has over 10 'above the water' cottages connected each...
