Moro Ma Doto is unique destination resort and ongoing eco-project on the island of Morotai, in the North-Eastern Spice islands. Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and rolling hills, the resort sits in jungle forest among coconut and mango trees. Moro Ma Doto Resort is based upon sound sustainability and the philosophy of local, natural integration maintaining a small footprint on the environment. The local community is helping to create the microcosm utopia using traditional materials such as natural fibers, bamboo, palm fronds and local woods found on the island. Natural branching pathways interconnect the reception, public spaces and down to the villas and spa, with special attention being paid to your feeling of freedom and privacy.
Accommodations are in an array of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom villas, and the residential estate villas. All villas are air conditioned with ceiling fans, refrigerator/mini bar, tea/coffee-makers, electronic safe, hairdryer and private sheltered porch, indoor bath and shower, outdoor showers. Some have extended wooden decks and/or pools and hot tubs. All have been designed and appointed down to the minute details. Although there are plenty of activities out and about, just staying at your pad is a wonderfully satisfying experience in itself.
Dining here starts from the ground up. Organically grown fruit and vegetables are harvested fresh from the on-grounds garden, along with free-range chicken and eggs. Fresh fish is brought in daily by the local fishermen. Vitality is key with preparations using cold pressed coconut oil and local herbs and spices. The restaurants include ‘Moro Point’ for all-day dining with views of the surf, and The ‘Boathouse’ offering regional snacks and seafood BBQ. Grab a drink from the bar and chill on the deck and beside the pool.
The Moro Ma Doto Spa has your choice of private double and single treatment pavilions. You can choose to take treatments in your villa also. Set in tranquility and vibrant tropical surroundings enjoy holistic treatments for the body and soul. There are Tai Chi and yoga classes for beginners at the cliff-top Yoga Pavilion, plus 1 hour yoga classes for surfers and inner core strength.
Aside from surfing, other activities include snorkeling, diving, fishing, beach volleyball, billiards, mountain biking, motocross and treks to local villages and other nature excursions. Bring your own gear or rent from the resort at extra charge. There are organized tours, as well as boat access to other breaks aside from the three out front.
