Life on our two tiny paradise islands is simple and good.
One wouldn’t guess that only two hours by speedboat from the urban metropolis that is Jakarta, you’d find such a gorgeous and pristine place. Pulau Macan is a true gem - it was that way before we came to steward it, and we have done our best to keep it that way.
The genuine warmth of our team and their attentiveness to your needs and wishes makes one feel at ease on our islands. Magical reefs with colorful corals and playful fish invite you into their world to truly get away from it all. The open skies soothe your soul, the gentle breezes calm your mind, and the delicious foods and cozy textures nourish your senses. All around you are solutions to the common problems that we face – solar powered energy, natural building, organic aloe vera gardens, rain water collection systems, waste management strategies, and friendly folks making the world a better place. The sum total of all this makes us feel at home and inspired by our environment. Only a short trip by fast boats from Jakarta, Tiger Islands Village & Eco Resort is our mini version of paradise amongst tropical waters.
Our islands are situated in the Java Sea, about 47 nautical miles from the marinas in North Jakarta, Indonesia. To get here, you can board our safe and quick boat partner's ships. In some cases you will need to take the 'regular boats' that will stop off at other islands, and in other cases you will board a privately chartered ship that is exclusive to our guests and will go directly to the island. Important details include an 8 am departure time to the island, and a 2 pm departure time from the island back to Jakarta - with an average journey time of about 2 hours.
Our two main cooks have been cooking international and local meals for families for 20 years. We worked on menus with them that focus on providing balanced meals that are wholesome and nourishing. Most of our guests love our food, and our unique blend of Indonesian and international dishes. Our meals are suitable for vegetarians, and we serve seafood everyday also. A stay with us means you will never go hungry as all meals are served buffet style, and snacks are almost always available.
For beverages you'll find that water, tea, coffee, cocoa, and hot ginger water is always available in the club house, and is self-served. In the mornings we also provide juice and milk.
When possible, we source organic produce and we are experimenting with growing more of our own food - which because of small island conditions, has been a great challenge!
What are the things you might like to do at your island home? The reefs around us are pretty good, so snorkeling and diving are favorite activities here. Of course, you are perfectly welcome to relax, soak in the sun, listen to our carefully chosen playlists, and take lots of naps. There is plenty to do - and not do - during your stay.
