          Great place to stay right on the beach. Staff are very accommodating, helpful and made sure our needs were met. We had a wonderful experience staying at the Derawan Dive Lodge and would recommend the place to anyone.

          Silva just want to update you that the old Derawan Lodge was burn down to the ground on September 2015 and they build everything from zero. So I guess it is much better now. I don't know who is the dive manager when you visited but now is Simon which was stationed in Tasik Diver Lodge Manado before. Just incase you want on to return to Derawan one day.

          Hi. I am struggling to find rates for Derawan Dive Lodge. I have sent emails but always it took ages for them to reply me and they do not really answer my questions but always gave me a short answer, which the conversation never ends. Anyone could help me for the rates and some details for the costs and information? Much appreciated!

          Most divers fly from Balikpapan to Tanjung Redeb and then arrange with the dive resort to pick them up and take them the rest of the way by minibus and boat. If that's outside your budget, or you are thinking of staying in... More
