Only 2 hours by boat Pulau Macan is an oasis compared to the busy Jakarta. The food is really good, the personnel really helpful and the views during snorkeling beautiful. All together it is an island where you can really relax.

I love Tiger Island! Because it is a small island, the cap on how many people can be present means that this tiny space is relaxing, quiet, and a perfect getaway. While it's not cheap to stay a few nights, it is the kind of place that instantly melts away stress. There is no AC, because it is an Eco... More

I had a great week end at the Tiger Island resort which is 90 minutes away from Jakarta (it took 2h to return because of the strong sea). We had the best hut (Sunset hut) with a full sea view and, indeed s great sunset. That's the only room with attached (outdoor) bathroom. Here you are close to nature in... More

In my case, getting away for a long weekend to go snorkeling several times a day -- definitely not a bargain, but certainly glad I did! Every morning we spent snorkeling around the two islands -- and while it may not be the best snorkeling in Indonesia, for being an easy get-away, yes, I'm quite happy with all the fish... More

great place! great staff! The island it's small and can host just 10-15 people. Close to Jakarta but far enough for have a great sea. The Cottages are open and directly connected to the sea. Amazing lunch and dinner with fresh sea food. Macan is certainly the best of the 1000 island. GO THERE!

As a journalist, I was taken on an all-expense-paid junket to a five-star island resort in Maldives a while back. I thought that was the best island experience I could ever hope for. I was wrong. And lucky. I landed in Jakarta on a Tuesday, decided I wasn't keen on staying in the city and booked this place after a... More

Pulau Macan, one of the Thousand Islands just of Jakarta, is a special oasis that takes you far away from the madness of crowded traffic-jammed city. Just 90min by a comfortable speed boat from Ancol, it is a very small island (taking no more than 15min to walk around it), with villas built all around the circumference. The resort itself... More

We haven't been in 2 years, and was pleasantly reminded what a couple getaway it is from the city. They have another island about 200 meters across, so you can get your Robinson Crusoe fix then leisurely walk or swim back to the bigger island. Stars at night, clear aquamarine water, healthy home cooked meals, and just a lot of... More

The island can be reached in 90 minutes from Marina Ancol. A very suitable location for people living in jakarta to get away for a short vacation. This is a private island hence only those staying on the island would likely to appear there. Very quiet and relaxing. The food they serve is very good too, cooked by an old... More

I went there for one day trip starting from Ancol Marina Port and arrived in Pulau Macan at ten. When we arrived, brunch has served in the main hut of the resort ; fresh juice, breads, pancake, fresh milk - Delicious, it feels like home. After brunch, I decided to walk over to the small island. White sand, clear water,... More
