It’s such a wonderful place

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Mar 2020
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

          Room tip: Beware of rust from the line if drying clothes outside the room.

          We loved hosting your family! We think that our House Reef and the turtles are an amazing experience for children. They'll always remember their stay at Maratua Guesthouse. Thank you for trusting us with your island holiday.
