From the moment you arrive you are in paradise. Florian and Nancy are terrific managers and know how to organize everything. The accomodations is more than well and the food is delicious and very divers. The crew at the dive centre as well as the restaurant and the rest are very kind and always willing to help you. We have had a very pleasant stay. We can recommand it if you want to have a nice and relaxed holliday.

Our initial arrangment to stay one week only we soon extent our holiday for more one week. The dives are first class, the food at the morning and evening absolute delicious, the service okey and the rooms in best conditions, nothing to reclaim at all. A real paradies for (experienced) scuba divers with NITROX diving.

I`m just back from an amazing dive trip to Nabucco Island Resort in East Kalimantan, Borneo. I am a far travelled diver and have to say that this is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Nabucco is a small Resort with only 18 rooms, on a tiny little Island and surrounded by bright white sand and turquoise waters. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly and the staff were very attentive. The over water room was beautiful and meet all requests. The veranda offered some spec. views on the lagoon, Maratua Island and also had a lot of fish under water life even seen sitting on the veranda. The diving was very well run, and the groups very small. Our guide Andris was super knowledgeable and took good care about us! Also the boat crews were brilliant. good drops and immy.pick up. Even though I personally did not use the rental gear, but a couple of my dive group did. The rental gear seemed to be in excellent condition. The diving was superb. I saw different kind of reef sharks, plenty turtles on every dive, tuna, schools of trevally, a giant barracuda school, mantas, frog fish, pygmy sea horses, ghost pipe fish, 21 different kind of nudiranches … you name it!!! Water temperature was 28 to 29 degrees. All in all it was an outstanding stay at Nabucco Island Resort, and I recommend it HIGHLY! Don’t expect luxury rooms and fancy decoration. Do expect exceptional reef diving, great staff and a simple, cozy and lovely dive resort with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

We stayed at Nabucco Island for 7 days. It is a Paradise! Apart from the breathtaking views, the staff of the island is heartwarming and did everything to make our stay perfect. The diving was great as well; since our kids were diving for the second time only, they received a lot of personal attention and support in refreshing their skills and knowledge. We have seen lots of beautiful coral and fishes and even a small shark while snorkeling. The restaurant serves very healthy and fresh menus to choose from every day. Our cabins with ocean view and private beach (!) were clean and spacious and offer a lot of privacy to relax. Thanks Nabucco team!

It is hard to imagine anywhere more beautiful on the planet than Nabucco Island Resort. The facilities are excellent all around - rooms are very comfortable and the food was delicious and always more than enough. Our dive guide was Andris and he was superb. The manager Florian was very attentive to all our needs and all the staff were really lovely. The restaurant and bar are located over the water with fantastic views, and are great for hanging out in. Diving was awesome, but be warned there are a few dive sites with strong currents requiring reef hooks (supplied). We were a group of 3 adults and 3 kids and everyone had a great time. The 9 yr-old got her first try at SCUBA (Bubblemaker) with Florian and it went really well. If night sky photography is your thing, the jetty is a good place for it - Florian can turn off the lights for you. We will be coming back again for sure.
