Where is Pulo Cinta?
Pulo Cinta is a tropical resort – often known as Maldives Van Gorontalo – located in Gulf of Tomini, Gorontalo, Indonesia. It is called Pulo Cinta (Love Island) because it is shaped like a heart from the aerial view.
There were days, its port was crowded with ships and people from far away lands. It was the time of war, when a young Prince of Gorontalo met the beautiful daughter of a Dutch trader. Among the bloodshed and gun powder, against everything they are born into – their forbidden love bloomed in agony. Hidden in the night, under the stars, Pulo Cinta was their secret escape. There, they can be lovers, far from everything that separates them.
How to get there?
My starting point was from KL,malaysia.
We began our trip with a flight from KLIA2 Airport to Soekarno-Hatta Airport,Jakarta (two-hour flight), and continue flew from Soekarno-Hatta Airport to Jalaluddin Airport at Gorontalo, Sulawesi, Indonesia (three-hour flight)
As soon as we got there, we got to a two-hour road trip to harbour. The ride will be along the small town of Gorontalo so it was the perfect time to enjoy the country road view. We departed the harbour by boat that took us to Pulo Cinta (15min boat trip)
How about the resort?
The resorts are built above the water surrounding the island. There are three types of villas available: one bedroom villa, two bedroom villa, and three bedroom villa. All of them accommodate spacious living area, 40″ LED TV with international channels, fresh water shower, Wi-Fi and built-in audio system.
What kind of activities available there?
Pulo Cinta is the perfect place to visit whether it is with your family or friends, or during your honeymoon trip. You can take your sweet time for a leisure; while there are activities like paddleboard, fishing, island hoping to bajo village or monduli island, waterfall & hiking, whaleshark trip(depends on availability), snorkeling and scuba diving.
How much does it cost?
My 4D3N trip is around RM2000 (ALL IN)
Package included :
*Return flight from KL > Jakarta > Gorontalo
*3N water villa accommodation
*Transfer from airport to resort
*Fullboard meals + snacks + drinks
*Romantic set up beach dinner
*Souvenir from pulo cinta
Additional things to know:
There is no AC in the villas, but personally, overall it was the perfect temperature. The fresh water supply was also quite limited so it’s always better to be wise when using the water. The resort is using 100% solar panel energy to light up the island, if you’re going to use of heating device such as hairdryer or iron is suggested during the daytime.
Is it worth it?
Totally! For those who want a budget honeymoon or shortgetaway, this definitely is the place you should come.
The color of the sea is sooooooooo beautiful. There is so many type of fishy & starfish surrounded by the villas.
