Pulo Cinta – The Island of Love
Â Sitting in a secluded lagoon off the coast of Gorontalo, there lies an island quite unlike any other. Pulo Cinta is the epitome of romance, tranquility and escapism, floating lazily on the sublime tropical waters of the Molucca Sea. The horizon reaches round in all directions, unbroken and inviting; a deep infinity of blue.
Legend has it that long ago, the daughter of a Dutch trader fell in love with her father’s enemy, a Gorontalo prince. Every night they would escape to a secluded heart-shaped island out in the wide open ocean, away from the gunpowder and politics, to love one another in peace beneath the stars.
Today, that same lovers’ hideaway is the home of Pulo Cinta Resort, where star-crossed soul mates still migrate to watch the stars come out. Only now they do so in the most luxurious of settings.
All of Pulo Cinta’s villas sit at the end of their own personal jetty raised up above the crystal clear waters, providing guests with privacy and a panoramic view of the pristine ocean surroundings.
Superb dive sites for snorkelling and scuba surround Pulo Cinta, plus guests can also indulge in someÂ island hopping & exploration, water sports, natureÂ conservation programs and a special honeymoon package. Or they can choose to simply watch the world turn in complete and utter relaxation, taste deliciously exotic food, and toast the sunset from the comfort of a candlelit dinner for two on the beach.
Flights are available to Jalaluddin Airport, Gorontalo Province of Sulawesi via Jakarta or Menado. Get yourself there and Pulo Cinta’s exclusive airport pick-up service will do the rest, whisking you away on the waves to the home of your heart’s desires.
