Dive Package from US$ 638
Small and cozy Derawan Dive Lodge is located on the island of Derawan, which is the main island of the same-named archipelago just off the coast of East Kalimantan in Indonesia. Built on a private white sandy beach, the Lodge with its just 10 rooms is a perfect place for everyone who likes the personal touch in his holiday. It is this very personal touch that makes the difference. Its size creates its own uniqueness and the feel of a boutique resort. However whilst maintaining our ‘lodge’ tag, we strive to emulate a resort standard given the limited resources on the island.
Diving at Derawan is very diverse, ranging from spectacular wall dives to wreck and shore dives. There is an incredible diversity of small marine life in the shallows, as well as an ever dominant presence of turtles cruising the reef edge in deeper water. Add to this one of only two non stinging Jellyfish lakes in the world and you’re up for a perfect diving holiday!
With two specially commissioned fuel efficient speedboats and a fully self-contained dive centre including NITROX, along with professional friendly service, the Derawan Dive Lodge caters for guests who want to experience diving at its best. Our highly trained and experienced Tasik Divers team lives for the diving, so each one is the ideal buddy for your Tasik diving experience.
However, the Lodge is not just built for divers. Its outstanding location also invites snorkelers as well as sun seekers.

The Lodge is built from wood and located right at a white sandy private beach. There are only 10 rooms, all air-conditioned and furnished in a basic, but comfortable Balinese style. It takes you exactly 10 seconds to go for a swim in crystal clear sea. Surrounded by shallow water you can meet and greet giant turtles all around you, visiting the beach to find the perfect place to lay their eggs. Derawan is the home to green turtles and we do work and support John, who is our turtle consultant employed by the WWF. John will be happy to inform us anytime the turtles come up the beach to lay their eggs. A barefoot walk on the long beach around the island is a must, but there are more secrets to discover on the other islands around Derawan. Or simply watch the world go by from your hammock under swaying palms. Our friendly staff is mainly from the island itself and happy to make your stay a once in a lifetime experience. Cosy atmosphere meets ecology: We’ve put in extra care by using septic tank as well energy saving amenities such as heat exchange water heaters and low watt air-conditioning.
Our small outdoor restaurant is located halfway on the beach and above the water. We will serve you mainly Indonesian food – a lot of fresh fish – and the menu is completed by some European dishes. The restaurant staff is a mixture of locals and Manadonese who will look after your culinary well-being with traditional Indonesian spices. They will be happy to serve your favourite Indonesian dishes on special request.
Be aware that we are in the Muslim part of Indonesia and the meats are limited to fish, seafood, chicken and beef. No pork will be served due to respect to our staff.
Tasik Divers aim to limit their dive group to 4 per group whenever possible. All Tasik Divers’ guides are trained in Manado and Lembeh for many years. You will be taken to the dive/snorkeling sites with our comfortable speedboats, equipped with all necessary safety equipment. The dive center is fully integrated with the lodge and you will often see your dive guide around, ready to discuss the days diving, what you may see tomorrow, or even serving you a cold beer..!
