The location is absolutely spectacular. Dotted with islands, the Java Sea offers a Maldives-like experience. Great for snorkeling, swimming, kayaking etc. It truly is an oasis, far away from Jakarta's chaos. The resort is basic, rooms are nice but the general area is a bit beat up. The food is terrible, one can get amazing Indonesian food anywhere in the...

Dear EeVeeHou, Thank you for complimenting us on our location and the water activities you experienced. As for the food, since you were not the only person who wasn't happy with it this month, I already talked to the kitchen team and told them about your comments. They were very open to feedback and committed to make some improvements. If...

To start with the one positive thing, the location, the pristine blue waters and the fact that this is so close to Jakarta is amazing! But I was appalled to find out that the price is not justified. We paid a 500 euro for one hut, so I expected some luxury. Although not 5 stars at least I expected clean...

Dear Karen, I am glad that you love the island and very sorry that you were disappointed with the rooms and the food. Regarding dirty sheets, it's been our problem for a long time. There are many pine trees surrounding our open aired rooms. Seeing red-ish orange spots on the sheets, our guests often think that the sheets get stained...

Had the time of my life here! I've never been so keen of watersports before, but this island got me in the ocean and not wanting to come out! Dinner on the Sun Deck is a great way to socialize and making new friends. So leave your smart phone in your room. Also loving the 'traditional' games they have at...

Have to say this was a highlight of my holiday, fantastic place to chill and relax. Great healthy food and the accommodation was amazing, I stayed in the Zen hut. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Plenty to do if you like scuba diving and water sports. Only slight issue is the transport, make sure you sit on the top...

Hi Ewan B, Thanks for your commnets. I'm glad you loved the island and our resort. As for the transport, Pulau Macan don't have our own boats so we still depend on our boat partner. We have passed your comments to them. Hope to see you on the island again some time in the future. Warm regards, Agnes

My cousin and I stayed in this eco-resort for a short 3D2N holiday. After a standard 2 hours public speed boat ride from Marina Ancol Jakarta, we arrived and greeted warmly by the staff. Immediately, we felt like as if we're at home with friends and family. The rest of our stay was just simply fabulously perfect. The meals were...

Don't expect luxury sheets and room service. This is an Eco resort and it offers the basics in a very special and beautiful surrounding. You are paying for seclusion and respite from the chaos of Jakarta We seen Dolphins, Swordfish chasing prey, sea horses, coral, flying foxes, iguanas, bird life and even the local cat was friendly. After staying at...

A great escape from Jakarta far from the traffic and hustle and bustle. This is not 5 star hotel accommodation but all the better for it. Many of the cabins have stunning views and access directly to the sea. The food and drink is good with a small selection to meet most people's needs. There is great snorkelling with clear...

Tiger island is the perfect getaway for a night or two! I absolutely loved the accommodations and the island was well taken care of. My only complaint is that many of the wood furnishings and ladders (leading in and out of the sea) are very jagged and rough. My legs were completely torn up by the end of my two...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a simple island based lodge / eco resort in an unbelievably gorgeous location (especially considering how close we are to Jakarta). We have 6 open air huts and 3 cottages with two rooms each on our main island. We also have two small camp sites - one on our main island and one on our little deserted island. We do our best to be eco-friendly and are experimenting with efficient energy initiatives, natural building techniques, island based organic farming, coral planting, rain water harvesting, water efficiency, and local educational and economic initiatives to boost quality of life for the communities in our region. We also prioritise food and do our best to keep it delicious AND healthy. Ultimately, we hope to make you feel at home and hopefully inspired by a little pocket of bliss on the doorstep to Jakarta. ... more   less
