how to get here

  1. Daily flights from Jakarta Soekarno Hatta Airport (3 hours), Bali Denpasar Airport (45 minutes), and Lombok Mataram Airport (30 minutes) to Sumbawa Besar Airport. Operated by Garuda Indonesia, Wings Air,  and Lion Air.
  2. A public boat service runs every day between Sumbawa Besar and Moyo Island. The scheduled departure time from Moyo Island is 7.00 am and the departure time from Sumbawa Besar is 11.30 am. Each way takes 2 hours.
  3. From Sumbawa Besar,  it is also possible to charter a  private boat to Moyo Island. This takes about 1 hour, taking you directly to Blue emOcean Resort‘s jetty.  Our staff can organize this boat transfer to the Resort for our guests.

Please note that Blue emOcean Resort cannot be held responsible for any delay or cancellation due to weather conditions and/or technical reasons affecting any of the above transportation facilities.


When we first discovered Moyo Island,  we were instantly captivated by its beauty and by the potentials of the Island as a top tourist destination. Close cooperation with the Indonesian authorities had helped our company in obtaining all the necessary permits to build and manage the Blue emOcean project. At Blue emOcean Resort,  we aim to help the local population of Moyo Island by boosting the tourism development of the island and employing as many people as possible from nearby villages.  
Being in such a remote location comes with all the challenges to offering a high standard of service. At Blue emOcean,  we produce our own electricity that is available 24 hours a day and we strive to obtain the best phone reception possible.
The cornerstone of the Resort is the nature that surrounds it:  waterfalls, jungle, and reefs. We commit ourselves to preserve and respect the natural beauty of Moyo Island, and we ask our guests to do the same. The island will thank you for acting responsibly and by taking all the possible actions not to harm the fragile ecosystem that exists on the island and the ocean around it

What our clients say

The food are excellent and very tasty. The staffs were very helpful and doing their best to accommodate our requests. The place is very peaceful and perfect to watch stars at night . We had the best place to watch the sunset everyday with our drinks at the beach or jetty. The snorkeling just in front of the property were nice and diving around the island were excellent. The place is fairly remote so we brought a lot of books with us.

Extremely peaceful location, just what we looked for. Very attentive staff and the couple running the place were great! They helped us with a first aid kit after a burn injury, which is difficult to get hold of on the island(almost no infrastructure, no ATM(!!!) and no real roads). The whole situation was very welcoming and comfortable. They had offers for snorkeling and diving which unfortunately was not an option for us at the time. We highly recommend Mojo as an island, very exotic and authentic experience, and we highly recommend Blue Emocean as a place to stay there.

Mauro’s place is amazingly beautiful. I should start by pointing out that Moyo island is a unique place and I was very lucky to find this Airbnb listing within the island. It’s affordable, clean, and most importantly, they treated us like family. I went during jellyfish season and had the misfortune of being stung by one of them, and at no point I felt scared or in danger… the staff knew exactly what to do and took care of me. The next day I felt like nothing happened. They are so experienced in marine life and even do diving lessons if you need it. The food is so good and went beyond my expectations! So tasty and so good; they even have vegetarian options and the portions are generous. Overall, I could write tons of paragraphs about how good this place is, but I will end it by encouraging all adventurous travelers out there to come and stay here when they’re in Moyo.

Room and room service. Friendly owners. Quiet place. Nice to rest. Jetty next to the hotel. Snorkeling in front of the hotel possible. Tours to very beautiful waterfalls by bike or motor bike. Friendly people in the village nearby. Owner always took care of the guests.

 Spotlessly clean room, relaxed atmosphere and the friendly staff made our staying at Blue EmOcean Resort just perfect, we miss it a lot already! Moyo island is a wonderful place to discover the real Indonesia among small villages, waterfalls, long desert beaches and, above all, amazing snorkeling and diving spots, all surrounded by a wild and almost untouched jungle.

Manuela, SPA

Amazing hosts, welcoming, available, and helpful. Food was very good, they even offered us lunchboxes as we were leaving very early in the morning to visit the incredible mojo island. Awesome food ! (hosts are italian, pizza was sooo tasty the night we had it!) They are so many things to do on the island, the beauty of the nature is beyond expectations. Mojo is such a luxuriant island! Do not miss the incredible Mata Jitsu waterfall that has been popularized by Lady Diana in the 90’s. We also went snorkeling close to the resort jetty and we were more than satisfied of what we were able to see. It was really a plus for us to be able to snorkle so close from where we were staying.

Ons verblijf bij Blue Emocean was 4 dagen in augustus 2018. Met een auto van het vliegveld Sumbawa Besar naar de haven is 15 minuten, dan is het nog 2 uur met de privé boot naar het afgelegen hotel. Transport was prima geregeld door Mauro. Het hotel ligt twee kilometer vanaf een klein dorpje. Stroom komt van een generator. Kamers zijn brandschoon, warm water en goede airco. Je kan kilometers wandelen over het strand zonder iemand tegen te komen. Er ligt een heel mooi snorkelrif met veel soorten vissen direct voor het hotel. Via de Eigen Jetty kun je er makkelijk bij komen. Wel ben je daarvoor afhankelijk van het getij. Er is wel een behoorlijke stroming. We hebben een wandeling gemaakt naar het dorpje en een waterval daar in de buurt. Achterop een motor zijn we ook naar de beroemde waterval geweest. Was een stevige rit achterop over een heel slechte weg. Eten was niet heel uitgebreid maar goed en erg smakelijk. Bediening/verzorging prima en erg vriendelijk, voelde als “thuis”. Geen vraag was te veel. Zoek je een heeel rustige plek met mooie natuur en gastvriendelijkheid ver van de hektiek van bv Bali, en je bent bereid een stukje te reizen dan is dit zeker aan te bevelen

Erik, NL

I won’t forget the hospitality of the hotel staffs and especially the owner. They really made me feel like home. They served the best that they could do. They took care of us really well. They took responsibility of our safety. They are so lovely. Really recommended


Quiet and wonderful place. Right in front of the sea where you can snorkel in a beautiful reef. Wonderful dives. Staff very nice and lovely. they will help you for whatever reason making your stay unforgettable!
