3 of Tiger Island team members have actually lived on the islands for more than 25 years! They were hired to look after the island by the family that took over stewardship of the island in the mid 1970s. In 2007 a start-up travel company by the name of United Adventures took over full time stewardship of the islands, and transformed Pulau Macan Kecil and Pulau Macan Gundul into lodge / resort / camp grounds that would be an experiment in sustainability. In 2013, the family that owns the island and United Adventures created a partnership to steward and manage the islands together.
Pulau Macan was designed to be an experiment in good living – to us this means taking good care of our team and our guests, and being responsible stewards of our natural environment.
