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...

The sea is great. But the resort is totally overpriced. Food is poor and terrible! .. And expensive if not included in the pack. Ridiculous they asked price for renting mask.. And price for the snork..!! Separately!!! By the same price you can go in 10 times better resort ( except the sea)

The reef has highest turtle frequency I have seen anywhere. It's great place for scuba diving if you like turtles. Jellyfish lake was bit of disappointment, the one in Palau is much better. Unfortunately I missed the mantas due to bad phase of moon. The resort location on sandy beach is excellent. Dive center and restaurant are nicely located in...

After arriving arriving at the island, we went over to Maratua Paradise Resort to ask about the possibilities of diving with them. Unfortunately this was only possible if we also stayed at the resort. This came as a suprise to us, as we were planning to stay at another accomodation. While we were considering to change our plans and stay...

Don't expect to find luxury you wish to have for paying $100 for 2 persons per night in here. Despite the great view they have, the service, in my opinion, was very poor. They only provided bottle of water in your room on1st night, and you need to refill the bottle yourself in the restaurant for next days. They promised...

Wow! That was the first word that came out from my mouth. What a breathtaking view! Three shades of ocean colours - blue, light blue, turquoise - in front of you. Let alone the white sand beach. This resort is blessed to have this kind of view. I stayed at the beach chalet because the water villa was more expensive......
