Small Paradise, Big Soul
Why merely disembark day-trip speed boats for a rushed photo-shoot of Pulau Mantanani Besar’s marine protected coral reef island? Instead, indulge at your own pace on white sandy beachfront chalets like pampered VIP guests. Savior Mantanani’s teal blue aquatic splendor by basking in comfort while feasting on four tasty meals a day. That was exactly what my partner and I embarked on for six whole days. We cherished every moment of our time here. The only regret was not staying longer. We departed with watery eye melancholy as our speedboat sailed off. Looking backwards, the collective smiles of the attentive food & beverage team lingered in our hearts as our paradise island shrunk into the distance. Our final verdict: Mantanani Island was even more spectacular in person than the photogenic postcard pictures. This thanks in part to the wonderful individuals immersed in Sutera’s cheerful hospitality culture. ‘Small paradise, big soul’ sums up our experience here.
