Amazing resort ! You can see marine life just under your villas around the clock. You may swim or snorkel, bring along your waterproof camera. The sea water is very clear. Don't miss the sunrise and sunset.

My group stayed at the water villas for 5 nights in Jun 2014. Hotel was simple, villas were spacious, each can accommodate 3-4 people comfortably. Food was also simple but pretty good, they cooked the fish and other seafood many different ways so it was not boring. The best thing is the sea, its so pretty, beautiful clear green blue... More

Little gateway to beautiful watervilla I've ever come in Indonesia. Compare to some local resort in Raja Ampat, you can get higher quality of water villa and extraordinary seaview with same price !! Fair service, Good food,good facilities, amazing turquoise seaview and colorful underwater in this Maratua Paradise Resort it so recommended for your summer holiday :)🌴😎

Two options available, water villas or ground chalets. The place is far from luxurious despite the name resort, but it's good enough for a place far from main land. Short of staffs though, so you have to be patient with room cleaning and service. Huge bathroom with normal and hot water. No tv as you are supposed to be busy... More

Maratua is an island 45 minutes by boat from Derawan Island, the main island of the Derawan archipelago. My friend and I joined a tour from Jakarta and arrived in Tarakan before setting off for Derawan. Derawan can be reached by speed boat from Tarakan's main harbor, Pelabuhan Tengkayu. It's a 3-hour ride by three-engine speeds, and you couldn't help... More
