We arrived here after a long trip in september 2016. We supposed to stay just fews days but the atmosphere was so perfect that we decided to stay for two weeks. The place is something you don't expect, an amazing mix between simplicity and comfort. The snorkeling in front of the jetty is simply breathtaking and Marco and Ilaria were...

I co ran a week long yoga retreat. It could not have been more perfect. The food was wonderful, accommodating everyone's needs, the rooms were comfortable, large and cozy. If you have Padi there is an extraordinary amount of diving to do and even if you don't the snorkeling is spectacular at the end of the jetty. They also organise...

Design of the main building is very interesting, with italian family meals around big table. Thanks to the research operation, I was able to enjoy free lessons about reef life too. Three daily boat dives can be arranged. I would recommend also the day trip to Lembeh Strait. House reef is in excellent shape, and accessible for snorkelers too.

Coral Eye was one of the best and most laid-back places I have ever visited. It is one of just a few a real eco-tourist places where you don't just refill water, everything is designed to go hand-in-hand with the surrounding nature, avoiding unnecessary waste, joint beach clean-ups etc. The place was designed as a research-outpost and there are students...
