I stayed at Maratua Guesthouse with a group of friends in September 2013 and we all loved it. Before we even arrived, Guesthouse staff were so helpful in assisting us with information on the area and how to get there. On arrival, the staff, particularly Jun, helped us with every request and question – planning day trips to nearby islands (including packed lunches), snorkelling, diving and a range of other activities on Maratua.
Accommodation is cute, clean and comfortable, and located in quiet forest settings. The restaurant food is really good, catering to a range of tastes and preferences (Indonesian and western). The view from the restaurant balcony is stunning, with turtles regularly swimming by. The beach in front of the restaurant is also gorgeous, and has great snorkelling (more turtles!) just offshore.
While it does take a bit of effort to get to Maratua, it is well worth the effort for access to such amazing beaches, top quality snorkelling/diving, swimming and relaxation. Jun and his staff are very knowledgeable and helpful in arranging transport to and from the island. I thoroughly recommend Maratua Guesthouse and hope to visit again soon!More
