Nabucco Island Resort offers 17 en-suite bungalows, located either on the beach or nestled in the lush gardens, and is perfectly situated to dive 'Big Fish Country' off the Kalimantan coast.
The resort sits right in the middle of tropical vegetation, with its eco credentials intact: it was built without felling a single tree, hot water is produced by solar energy and there is a rainwater processing plant on site.
A long stay is recommended due to the distance travelled in getting there, which includes a long boat journey from the mainland. The journey to this remote paradise can be incredibly rewarding.
