This hotel is good because the atmosphere they provide. You can just swim right in front of your floating cottage. The view is nice, breakfast is okay, and they sell good snack to enjoy sunset.... :))

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

I dived here last year and have nothing positive to say about this dive centre.. I went here with my girlfriend, we were not hotel guests but arrived as walk in customers. We are both pretty experienced at diving. Equipment: Everything leaks. I had air trickling from every point possible on my BCD. It was slow though and wasn't a... More

The room and facilities are excellent with beautiful sea view around the place.. This is suitable for water sport and nature lover. The view from dawn to night is beautiful.. The fish are abundant even beneath the water villa..

This is my 2nd time back to Maratua Paradise Resort. And I am already planning for my next visit next April. Needless to say, the diving is ah-mazing. Diversity in every spot, and simply breathtaking. Currents are a little strong, so snorkelling and inexperienced divers might want to be forewarned. But the dive masters are really thorough and disciplined, dive... More

The resort is in a stunning bay on the outer side of Maratua island. Here the sand is incredibly white and the colors of the sea are wonderful. Nothing different from most famous Polinesia, Maldives or similar. Really stunning! Water villas are very large and confortable, with outside private space and wonderful panorama. The restaurant is self-service based with basic... More

Turtles, rays, lion fish, eels, trevally, catfish, puffer, sea pike and angelfish - that's what I saw just from the walkways of the resort! A 20 m swim to the house reef and I got to see triggerfish, surgeonfish, parrotfish, wrasse, damsel, anemone fish, reef cod and lots of others which I could not even name. I went to Maratua... More

I don't have to say a lot about this resort. Just come and experience it by yourself. The location is close to Kakaban, Sangalaki and Nabuco. Very convinience for islands hopping and diving or snorkeling.
