About


 

 

 

Coral Eye is a unique diving resort and accommodation in Bangka Island. An easy atmosphere and warm, friendly service has been created to make you feel at home. Born as an outpost for marine studies, today Coral Eye is a melting pot of passionate travelers, underwater photographers and marine biologists.

The project came to life in 2009 blossoming out of the dreams and passions of four young marine biologists. Their paths were unintentionally entwined under the Indonesian Sea and bonded by a love for nature.

Everything happened by chance, without a clear idea of what Coral Eye would become.

The original idea was to create a place where universities and students could exchange ideas and develop their projects. Since 2013, thanks to the construction potential and the management versatility, Coral Eye has opened the door to tourism.

The idea of Coral Eye has its fundamentals in the desire to offer all guests simplicity that equals blissful comfort, creating a dynamic space where work, life and private space can merge into one experience.

Designed by Studio ARC.S the central structure was constructed to blend with its surroundings. It was build using craftsmanship of local artisans, employing local resources and adopting traditional building techniques in order to fit the specific requirements of a modern, state-of-the-art facility. 

The roof is made with bamboo and palm leafs, and its special cone shape allows warm air to escape upwards creating a conditioning system without the need of electricity.

A large, square table is the core element around which the social life of the structure revolves, giving rise to a cosy, convivial and roomy open space that guests can share at any time of the day.

On the ground floor all the other common areas have been placed - the bar, the small library and the shop - while on the first floor there is a large, sea-facing terrace that overlooks the beach and the ocean. It is a perfect space to relax after a long day.

no-trash triangle initiative

90% of ocean plastic comes from just ten rivers, eight of which are found in Asia, five of which feed directly into the Coral Triangle.

Our goal is to keep the environment clean and to create an adaptable and sustainable waste management system on Bangka Island.

save bangka

We are proud to be one of the founding members of BANGKA CONSERVATION FUND (BCF), created in order to fight illegal mining that has threatened Bangka since 2011. Back then the case seemed hopeless, but after long years of battle against corruption, we obtained the removal of the mine.

Each guest staying on Bangka is asked to donate 100.000 IDR (approximately 6€) to protect Bangka Island from the threat of mining and to help preserve the ecosystem.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
