Home to stunning landscapes, exciting nature adventures and scenic hidden gems - Indonesia is easily one of the best destinations to visit for anyone consumed by wanderlust. Attracting different types of travellers to its shores, this amazing country is known to be the place where people from all over the world go to for a relaxing getaway.
With an abundance of breathtaking accommodations - ranging from villas with private infinity pools to hidden island resorts, choosing one can be a little tricky. If you're searching for someplace where you and your loved ones can experience a complete and utter break from the world, then Pulo Cinta Eco Resort is a great place to start with.
Opened in 2015, Pulo Cinta is situated 2km off the coast near Gorontalo Province in North Sulawesi and sits among 23 inhabited islands. With a location that's right in the middle of the ocean and on top of an incredible reef, it should be reason enough for anyone to want to stay here. But this hidden paradise takes it one step further with its heart-shaped resort (from a bird's-eye view), inspiring its name that directly translates to 'Love Island'!
To get to this secluded resort, you'll have to fly to Jakarta then catch a domestic flight to Jalaluddin Airport in Gorontalo Province of Sulawesi. From there, exclusive airport pick-ups provided by Pulo Cinta Eco Resort will take you on a 2-hour drive through Boalemo Regency before departing via boat at Boalemo Harbour. After a 25-minute boat ride, you'll be greeted by an expansive view of the gorgeous resort spread across the ocean.
Pulo Cinta features 15 luxurious overwater bungalows consisting of one to three bedroom villas, all of which offer spacious living areas with full-height windows, a terrace and a dock. Connected by a wooden bridge, these villas are equipped with super king size beds and a private sun deck where you can lounge on bean bags while soaking up some sunshine. And the best part? The panoramic view of the island's pristine beach combined with turquoise waters that surround the central sandbank ?
