    We stayed at Villa Ma'Rasai and overall we had a great stay. The whole place is very nicely designed with rooms overlooking the sea and Tidore volcano. It is surrounded by lovely trees from the jungle. Food was super tasty, especially the avocado...

    Tolle Lage inmitten eines Privat-Dschungels. Die Zimmer sind geräumig mit Balkon, wir hatten einen wunderbaren Blick aufs Meer. Schöner Swimming Pool und sehr gutes Abendessen. Ideal für einen Stoppover.
