Amazing location and the most friendly staff!! One of those places you have to see, and preferably with a special person! If you're into diving and animals, it is a unique place. But even if you just go snorkelling, like we did, you will be blown away by the magical colours of the coral and the beautiful sea-creatures!

We were extremely pleased with Nabucco Island Resort (by Extradivers) in the vicinity of Maratua Island (not Central Kalimantan as the listing here says). Kathrin was very responsive during the booking period which helped since we booked quite late. Upon arrival to Berau, we were greeted by the driver to take us to the port for the 3-4 hr boat...

Just finished our "annual" (somewhat) diving holiday and couldn't have been happier we chose Nabucco Island Resort! Everything was well planned from the early bookings and monitoring of expected airport openings versus boat trips to arrival transfers and of course the diving! Staff on land and sea were excellent, taking care of all our needs from dive gear set up... More

My partner and I recently went to Maratua island for a bite of paradise, and world class diving. We stayed at the Maratua Guesthouse (excellent!) on Maratua island, but had the great opportunity to dive with Nabucco Divers. We did 10 dives with Nabucco and all were excellent! The staff is professional, helpful, responsible, and fun. We enjoyed diving with... More

Diving= excellent sites. Enough variations to suit everyone, from the beginner to the hard core drift masters. Dive crew and guides =warm, helpful and professional. I especially liked how every diver was assessed during the check out dives to ascertain if they were competent to try Big Fish Country. Accommodations= basic air-conditioned wood cabins that was on the dark side.... More

We stayed at Nabucco and it totally surpassed all our expectations, it's a must-visit! The resort is on a small, gorgeous tropical island, with palm trees, turquoise water, orchids and beautiful bird life (I saw sun-birds, sea eagles and kingfishers among others). It is a tranquil place to enjoy nature and relaxation, diving and snorkelling. The food was excellent and... More
