5. Waiterang Resort, Flores.

If diving is your thing, then the perfect romantic retreat would be Waiterang Resort. The resort is located on the rocky black sand beach on the north coast of Flores, not far from Maumere. Its calm sea is heavenly for a swim, underneath cloudless skies. A boat trip to the nearest island will bring you the white sand beaches where you can spend time alone on no man’s land.

6. Maratua Resort, Maratua Island.

Maratua is a resort with bungalows above the water with white sand bottom. The sand creates a turquoise oasis at your feet. Located on Maratua Island, this resort is far from the busy mob of Derawan Island, and so close to long stretch of white sandy beach and the pool of stingless jellyfish of Kakaban Island. If that’s not enough nature, there are the occasional sightings of turtles warming memories of your getaway.

7. Ora Beach Resort, Seram Island.

How can things be more romantic that a bungalow elevated above clear water with a view to the orange sunset? Ora Beach is located within a tight bay with calm sea as it’s front lawn. Private bungalows hover over pristine corals making it possible to jump out of your balcony room and enjoy a swim. Restricted to a limited amount of guest at one time, the resort guarantees a peaceful moment every day of your stay.
