Over priced and over rated. There was some extreme deferred maintence. The island is beautiful and the manager was an absolute gem. We wanted to go back , in spite of the horrible state the property was in, but when we found out that our delightful manager was no longer there, we will never go back. You had a good... More

It's a very old resort, looks like no maintenance at all. If you expected to have a luxury holiday, kindly change your plan to visit this island. The lodge is terrible. I stay at cabin 6A and during the rain in the midnight; water was drop inside the cabin. I and my friends should move the bed and not take... More

Small island resort, basic accommodation, decent restaurant, friendly staff. Bar has limited supplies. Good for a weekend relaxing not far from Jakarta, only an hour away by boat. Some decent dive sites close by.

Kotak Island is an hour and a half north of Jakrta. You get there on a fast boat-30 knots- from Ancol, in North Jakarta. Kotok Island is larger than the other islands and has a real lost world jungle feel. The rooms are basic -think losman- and the place is in need of some TLC. The manager met us at... More

I have traveled the world, and this is without a doubt the worst traveling experience I have ever had. Kotok Island is positively dreadful. Their website lies. My friends and I arrived expecting to pay the price advertized on the website, and were forced to pay more than double what was shown! The beach area was small, there were very... More

Pros: Nice setting. Reasonably good snorkelling. Cons: Uncomfortable beds, terrible showers, either scalding of freezing. No mosquito nets, but plenty of mosquitos. Rooms not cleaned. No coffee or tea making facilities. Food OK when there are a lot of people, poor when only a few. Rooms very run down and mouldy smelling. Overpriced for what it is.

This isn't a place worth travelling to if you're coming from abroad but for a night away from Jakarta, looking to get away from smog and congestion, it's really quite pleasant. Nothing particularly stands out--rooms are basic, food is average at best (although plentiful), everything is pretty rundown--but the staff are friendly and the setting does have a relaxing effect....

Stayed there for my diving trip, the location is good, I think still one of the best in Jakarta area. Done several diving there, the dive assistance provide you with good service. However the food there is too standard for the same price you paid you can have much wonderful eating experience in other island. The room was not very... More

I had read an earlier traveller's very negative comments, but I found to the contrary, Kotok had real charm. Sure, there is evidence the jungle would like to take it back, but there has been effort to give the guests an island experience that is close to nature, and takes advantage of the beautiful beaches, lagoon, ocean spectacle and wildlife....

If you're expecting luxurious, 5 star accommodation, this isn't the place. But if you want peace and tranquility then it is perfect. We - my partner and I - stayed for one night mid-week in October and had a brilliant time, despite the paranoia about stone fish (we didn't see one at all!). Take insect repellent - there are some...
