Derawan Dive Lodge
Derawan Dive Lodge is built on a private white sandy beach located on the island of Derawan, just off the coast of East Kalimantan in Indonesia, part of the Coral Triangle.
The resort features a range of accommodation to suit your needs – two ocean view cottages, six beach chalet rooms and two family duplex rooms. The lodge is built using a traditional Minahasan style concept. All rooms are equipped with AC, hot & cold shower, safety box, and a day bed.
It is only a few steps from your lodge to the beach to enjoy swimming in the crystal clear sea. Surrounded by shallow water you can meet and greet the occasional giant turtles visiting the beach to find the perfect place to lay their eggs. Derawan is home to green turtles.
Derawan Dive Lodge will serve you mainly Indonesian food (no pork), from a mixture of local and Manadonese cuisine. Vegan and vegetarian options can easily be provided upon request.
Also called the “Amazon of the Seas”, the Coral Triangle is the global centre of marine biodiversity with more than 3/4 of the world’s known coral species and more than 1/2 of the Indo-Pacific species of reef fish. The dive centre has two 14 meter dive boats and a fully self-contained air station including NITROX. You will be able to enjoy a diverse spectrum of diving, ranging from wall dives to wreck and shore dives. There is a diversity of small marine life in the shallows, as well as an ever dominant presence of endangered sea turtles cruising the reef edge in deeper water. Derawan Dive Lodge offers you the chance to experience mantas, a lake of non-stinging jellyfish and schooling barracuda. For macro fans, you can delight in the opportunities to catch a glimpse of the pygmy seahorses, blue-ring octopus and frogfish among others.
