Maratua Guesthouse is the only guesthouse on the island of Maratua. We are located in the beautiful jungle, right on the beach. Our chalets are eco-concept chalets that have been described as cute and comfortable by our guests. We have a wonderful restaurant with astounding sunset views. Turtles come and eat the grass in front of the restaurant every morning. The diving and snorkeling in this area is fantastic and we can help you arrange trips anywhere in the vicinity.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As a solo traveller, I wanted a place to stay that had a homey and welcoming feel. Jun, Ana and Hattan’s place felt exactly like that. They were incredibly accommodating, cooked great food and were a joy to be around. The room I stayed in was facing the ocean and the views were incredible, laying out on the porch in the hammock with a book. As mentioned by many others, you get to witness turtles feeding on the grass every morning at the front of the resort whilst having breakfast. By the afternoon, you can walk right out and snorkel to see amazing coral, fish and more turtles! The room had everything I needed to be comfortable. Jun helps to organise day trips to other islands and has motorbikes for hire that you can use to see the island. I loved my stay here and would definitely recommend Maratua Guesthouse to anyone!

What a wonderful surprise to find this place. 1st the food is fantastic, I’m not a fussy eater but one of our group is and she loved everything also. Great portions and delicious. 2nd the water and reef right out front is the best on the island. So good in fact divers from derawan island come right out front for paid dives that you get for free day in day out. 3rd turtles, so many turtles. The sea life out front is so diverse it’s just incredible. Listen to the owner Jun about snorkeling times and where to cruise around to with his rental scooters. I had a blast would bring others here in a heartbeat. The accommodation is just fine, rustic cabins either in the jungle or on the seashore. It’s not fancy but it’s definitely a hidden gem

We had a wonderful time in Maratua Guesthouse for a week stay. The owner is very friendly and is definitely someone who loves and cares for nature, he will give you the best advices to see all the marine wildlife. The homemade food is excellent, the bungalows are confortable and sea turtles swim right in front of the main building. We had what we came for and even more !

The hotel has two settings for dwellings. A group of dwelling houses build along the sea front and another group is set inside the jungle with jungle view and a lake. The restaurant offers great view toward the sea where turtles are constantly visible there. An excellent choice for a hide away holiday.

Stayed with my partner and 2 children (10 & 11 yrs old). The amazing reef with 1000s of beautiful fish, just a short walk from shore with an 80m deep wall of coral. Breakfast with Turtles grazing on the sea grass. Tropical island paradise :D

We really enjoyed the accommodations here. There is a lot of pristine natural beauty nearby that can be enjoyed by walking, swimming and snorkeling. This place takes a while to get to so be sure to stay a while.

Location is good, can see turtles feeding daily, close to snorkeling spot, the staff was nice. Located away from tourist crowd, not so noisy, but it is a little far away from shops, walking may be around 15 minutes.
