Maratua Guesthouse

Discover Unlimited Beauty


Hello, intrepid traveler. You’ve found one of the last remaining gems in Southeast Asia. Maratua Island and the non-touristy Kalimantan is absolutely spectacular for both amazing marine life and exciting jungle encounters with orang utans and proboscis monkeys.

We have a spectacular ocean-front restaurant with a 180 degree view of the Celebes Sea. We offer breakfast, lunch and dinner to our guests and are able to pack lunches for divers and snorkels in eco-friendly packaging.

If you are a diver, you have the option to dive with the nearby Nabucco Dive Resort or with the local dive master on Maratua. The diving around Maratua Island is world class, but relatively unknown, so you’re in for a treat.

Come swim with giant turtles right in front of your ocean view villa. Spend a day meditating underwater with stingless jellyfish on Kakaban Island. If you’re patient and wait for the faster-moving tourists to leave, you can have the entire lake to yourself. It’s pure heaven.

Meanwhile off of Sangalaki Island, the manta rays come to feed and have their bodies washed by little creatures. Manta Rays are the angels of the sea. To swim with manta rays and have them come near you is an other worldly experience. You’ll never be the same again.

What are you waiting for?
