Nabucco has succeeded in keeping the resort a truly natural in harmony with nature resort, little of the natural vegetation was disturbed in its construction and coconut crabs, monitor lizards, king fishers, flying foxes and different kinds of small lizards all still inhabit the island and call it home.
Set in the Sulawesi Sea off the east coast of Kalimantan, Borneo on its own private island with a few little beaches where visitors can swim and sunbathe during high tide. This exotic resort combines the magic of nature and a family atmosphere and it is surrounded by some of the most bio and topically diverse diving you are likely to find in Indonesia.

You dine over the water in a restaurant on stilts overlooking the Maratua Atoll, you can choose between half or full board. Breakfast and lunch are served a la carte while dinner is an elaborate five course affair.

The diving is among the world’s best and ranges from a fresh water lake with non-stinging jelly fish to the coral infested 4km long house reef to plunging walls, sweeping currents and a startling array of pelagics.
