The Lodge is built from wood and located right at a white sandy private beach. There are only 10 rooms, all air-conditioned and furnished in a basic, but comfortable Balinese style.
It takes you exactly 10 seconds to go for a swim in crystal clear sea. Surrounded by shallow water you can meet and greet giant turtles all around you, visiting the beach to find the perfect place to lay their eggs. Derawan is the home to green turtles and we do work and support John, who is our turtle consultant employed by the WWF. John will be happy to inform us anytime the turtles come up the beach to lay their eggs.
A barefoot walk on the long beach around the island is a must, but there are more secrets to discover on the other islands around Derawan. Or simply watch the world go by from your hammock under swaying palms.
Our friendly staff is mainly from the island itself and happy to make your stay a once in a lifetime experience.
Cosy atmosphere meets ecology: We've put in extra care by using septic tank as well energy saving amenities such as heat exchange water heaters and low watt air-conditioning.

They will be happy to serve your favourite Indonesian dishes on special request.
