Don't bother with other types of room, the best and the only way to enjoy Derawan Dive Resort is getting the room over water, they referred this type of room as "VIP". The room is clean & large, with high ceiling and strong AC is plenty cool. Bottles of water, snacks, clothes drying rack, & firm bed. The bathroom smells... More

Supposedly the best resort on the island. Check in and check out procedures were the quickest i've ever experienced, not more than half a minute each. However being an old resort the standard room where we stayed was very basic and rather worn out. Perhaps it's time to get new pillows. Bed was reasonably comfortable and aircon worked perfectly. Breakfast... More

We stayed in Derawan Dive Resort for 3 nights during the end of March 2013. We booked transportation (land and boat) from Berau to Derawan from the hotel and this particular service was very good. The driver was already waiting for us at the airport and the boat was also waiting at the pier. So transportation was flawless. The car... More

My wife and I stayed there on March 2013 for three days in the room # 102. The room was nice although a little bit dark because only one light that was on instead of three. After one night, the aircon was broken. They couldn't fix it. It was an exhausted old aircon. We had to change room. The new... More

If you like "off the beaten path", this is your place! Outstanding diving! This place is not for everyone. If you are a dedicated diver and want to see what few people have seen and have fun doing it, this is your place. If you need The Four Seasons, this is NOT your place. To get here, you have to...
