Located only 15 - 20 minutes from Marina Ancol, Jakarta, Pulau Ayer has been known as the best, cleanest, the most exclusive island, and also as the brightest of the Thousand Islands (Kepulauan Seribu).
In ancient times, this island (Pulau Ayer) was the private recreation retreat of the former kings of the Thousand Islands. It was also used by the first President of the Republic of Indonesia as his private vacationland many years ago.
When you have been busy making a living and forgotten how to enjoy live, go and seek out a cottage at Pulau Ayer, and it will all come back to you. While you stay in anyone of the 45 cottages you will be living in a totally different atmosphere from the busy lifestyle from the city, cause there is no air pollution, no such thing as traffic jam, you will only find peacefulness.
Especially if you stay in the floating cottages that have been uniquely designed and built 3 meters above sea level, and they all have a glorious view of the ocean. There is also a traditional masseuse available to help you lose the muscle tension and soothe away your cares.
