Cute huts, breathtaking views. Loved playing in the water, kayaking and snorkeling, and walking across to the other island was likewise a very fun experience. It was a bit pricey, but after talking to the people running it, I see why and honestly I don't mind going the extra mile for the peace and quiet the island afforded. Although getting... More

As you take the speedboat from Jakarta to Pulau Macan, cutting through the filthy water, it's hard to imagine that there's a hidden paradise -- with white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, and thriving coral -- anywhere remotely near the city. But as you go along, and leave Jakarta in the distance, the litter bobbing in the sea starts to... More

I recently spent the weekend on Pulau Macan with some friends, and it was an interesting experience. The positive aspects are the spectacular ocean and amazing snorkeling. The resort also boasts some very beautiful and tranquil common areas. The not-so-great parts are the organization and price. We had 3 people at 180 USD a piece in a room that we... More

Thank you for complimenting us on our location, the snorkelling you experienced, and the challenges of running an eco resort.

What a beautiful little place. When I decided to head off for the day I had a host of islands to chose from, all of which were no further than 90 minutes by speed boat from Ancol Marina, Jakarta. After a a bit of internet action, I chose Pulau Macan (Tiger Island) primarily as it was one of the few... More

Although expensive for the area, the resort is a great location for a short break to escape the bustle of JKT. Not much to do, but that's what makes it special! Wine at 600,000 a bottle means you should bring your own & pay corkage.

What a discovery! This two-hectare heaven is a natural wonder, with beach cottages, dining lodge, outdoor lounge and pier( with solar panels) tastefully blending in with the palms, pines and mangroves. Ideal for a unique romantic escape...your own private island in the Java Sea, with perfect views in every direction. You can swim, snorkel or kayak to a deserted island... More

Want to relax and totally get over the hectic life of Jakarta, take an overnighter at Macan Eco Resort. It is super nice and you cannot beat sleeping almost directly over the sea, as you do in some of the huts. We were there for 1 night and it felt like 3-4 days, in a good way. All pace is... More

I read the reviews and must say I was extremely disappointed. First, good luck on trying to book a room. They are awful at responding to e-mails. Should have been a hint about the service. Second, it is EXORBITANT for the services provided. We paid $192 each per night for the Sunset Hut (3 of us shared the room as... More

I just got back from the trip with my wife, it was very beautiful. A good place to enjoy the life with relaxing, snorkling and practically resting. The food was great, it still a home made food but whats more important its not a caterer food. The beach is clean and perfect for you to go snorkling in the morning... More

I went there a few months ago with a friend. At first I was surprised with the rates, $160+ for one night (despite the boat from Marina is also expensive), considering whenever I went to Kepulauan Seribu Islands, the cost is usually below $ 40. Anyway, this is a resort anyway, so I thought, hey why not try the lavish... More
