Not to forget, the management of KEK Morotai also invited the polish ambassador’s entourage to do hopping island. The goal, so that they can witness with their own eyes the beauty of the small islands around Morotai Island.

For example, Pasir Timbul Island, an island that only arises when sea level recedes with smooth white sand beaches, and clear sea water as clear as crystal, and tourists can lie relaxed at sea level because it has high salt levels.

After that, the group was taken to Kokoya Island which is an uninhabited empty island. All the ambassadors’ entourage seemed amazed because when they came to Kokoya Island bak was on a private island. “And all around them is just white sand and beautiful coral reefs,” susan explained.

Then, the group also stopped near Dodola Island and did snorkeling. Here, His Excellency Stoczyńska can no longer cover her admiration for the underwater beauty of Morotai Island.

“Wow, it’s like in Heaven,” he said several times.

His Excellency Stoczyńska said that she really enjoyed the beautiful natural scenery around Dodola Island and was grateful to have the opportunity to enjoy the charm of morotai underwater beauty. Moreover, the atmosphere on the quiet island of Dodola, making The body of Her Majesty Stoczyńska so relaxed.

PT JABABEKA Tbk, through one of its subsidiaries, PT Jababeka Morotai agreed to form a consortium with Kyudenko Corporation (Kyudenko) and PT Santomo Resources Indonesia (Santomo) to participate in the tender of the Independent Power Producer (IPP) Solar Power Plant (PLTS) project in Morotai Special Economic Zone- on Morotai Island, North Maluku Province.

The formation of this consortium is a step to respond to electricity needs in Morotai Island, especially in the Morotai Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and readiness to respond to PT PLN’s plan as outlined in the National Electricity Supply Business Plan (RUPTL) 2021-2030.

Meanwhile, the signing of the cooperation agreement letter was carried out by Basuri Tjahaja Purnama as President Director of PT Jababeka Morotai, Setiawan Mardjuki as Director of PT Jababeka Morotai, with Shigetomi Norio as Chief Representative of Kyudenko, and Tomoichi Yamaguchi as President Director of Santomo in President Lounge, ground floor, Batavia Tower- Central Jakarta, Monday (01/24/2022).

As a division of its duties, Jababeka Morotai will act as land management and industrial estate formation, while Kyudenko and Santomo supply solar panels and other components, as well as construction.

Yamaguchi explained that Santomo was very happy to be a member of the consortium. Jababeka is a leading developer of industrial estates and Kyudenko is the No.1 EPC company for solar power generation in Japan. According to him, this consortium is the most suitable consortium for PLTS in Morotai.

Along with this, Shigetomi Norio considers that the signatories are efforts by Japan and Indonesia – which are both members of the G20 – to work together to reduce carbon emissions and reduce the effects of climate change. Because, Kyudenko has long conducted a survey related to the application of renewable energy in Indonesia, and realized its potential is very large in Indonesia. This is because the shape of the Indonesian state in the form of islands and its people spread to all the islands.

“Previously related to this project, we have experienced PLTS demonstration project in Sumba Island in collaboration with BPPT (which has been renamed BRIN). Pln central and regional, as well as stakeholder relations have seen together that Kyudenko can supply stable energy from PLTS.

They also expressed interest in us to build in other areas not as a demonstration project but as an actual project. Therefore, we are working closely with Jababeka Morotai in conducting a feasibility study and that’s where we see enormous potential in Morotai,” said Shigetomi Norio.

Basuri is also very optimistic about the development plan of IPP PLTS in Morotai SEZ, because each consortium member has complementary advantages so that this project can run well if realized. He also stated that preparations regarding the requirements and construction planning had been carried out.

Morotai SEZ tenants, such as business people and investors in fisheries, logistics, hospitals, data centers, other industries, as well as tourist areas such as theme parks and resorts, will be able to enjoy green energy with the best quality and competitive prices.

In addition, basuri concluded, with the status of special economic zone, tenants will also get special facilities, in the form of facilities for ease of licensing and taxation including tax holiday / taxiIncentives, customs, excise, goods traffic, employment, immigration, land and spatial planning, and business licensing.

The activity of tourism in the waters of Morotai Island is increasingly excited. Not only white sand and beautiful beaches as well as historical tours, the Special Economic Zone managed by PT Jababeka Morotai also has adrenaline-challenging tourist attractions that are rarely found in other tourist destinations.

Is the “Shark Scubadiving” which invites travelers to dive together with reef sharks in the wild. The types of sharks on Morotai Island include black fin sharks, white fin sharks, gray reef sharks, whale sharks, halmahera walking sharks, hammerhead sharks to bull sharks.

To be able to meet these marine animals, travelers must dive 19 to 21 meters deep under the sea. It is at this depth that dozens of blacktip reef sharks usually swim back and forth.

“This is the largest collection of blackfin sharks I have encountered while diving in Morotai. An unforgettable experience meeting the legendary creatures that inhabit the Morotai sea, “said Paul, one of the researchers from Marine Change who has visited tourist destinations.

To feel the sensation of swimming with sharks, travelers don’t need to worry. Because in this diving spot, there is a dive center that provides a guide for tourists who want to enjoy the thrill of diving in this place. Besides being trained, these guides have also studied the behavior of sharks.

One of the interesting dive points is Mitita Shark Dive Point. Here, divers will be treated to very interesting attractions. They can swim with sharks and take pictures with them.

This activity is indeed inviting divers’ curiosity, so it’s no wonder that more and more tourists are coming to dive and have a closer look at the ruler of the ocean.

This can be seen from the number of divers in Morotai which has increased since 2013. Per year around 400 to 1,000 visitors come to Morotai.

Every year, tourist visits to the island which is also known as the Maldives of Indonesia continue to increase along with better tourism facilities and infrastructure such as ports, tourist boats and dive operators.

MOROTAI is an island in the Halmahera Islands that has amazing natural and marine charm. Even so beautiful, Morotai Island was dubbed the Maldives of Indonesia. Many travelers fell in love with Morotai Island to make it back again and again.

Like at home

One of them is Riyo Sudjana, a diver and businessman. Yes, he admitted that he could go on holiday 2-3 times to Morotai Island. That’s because Riyo has been fascinated by the beauty of nature and the friendliness of the people.

At first Riyo fell in love with its natural beauty, only then did she fall in love with the hospitality of the Morotai people. Riyo felt that hospitality when she came to Morotai the second time by herself. For almost two weeks he lived and toured Morotai Island – to get to know Morotai Island better, and Riyo felt a match between himself and the character of the Morotai community.

Riyo told me that she could talk “at length” at the homes of local residents who were unfamiliar or new to her. And they themselves do not feel uncomfortable chatting with Riyo – who is actually a migrant. That is what makes Riyo gradually feel comfortable when taking a trip to Morotai Island.

“I am a divers, I have been diving everywhere. Almost all of the Eastern Indonesian diving spots I have tried, such as Labuan Bajo, Raja Ampat, and diving spots in Sulawesi. But nothing makes me feel at home. Only in Morotai I feel right at home, “Riyo said over the telephone, recently.

“If in Morotai, do not be surprised if you pass through a residential community, then you are offered to stop by to just have coffee or chat. The first time, to be honest, I was surprised to be offered a stop over. “How comehave been offered to stop by, youhave you just met you?” I asked myself. But once playing to other areas apparently local residents like to stop by too. And finally I became aware of ‘oh this is because the character of the community (friendly-friendly), “added Riyo.

Each diving spot has its own uniqueness.

While for its natural beauty, Riyo rate Morotai Island is one of the best diving spots in Indonesia. Because Morotai Island has 28 diving spots, each of which has its own uniqueness. Is that, blacktip sharks, ships and used cars of World War II, the currents, coral, to the cave.

“Plus, transportation to Morotai is easy. From the airport to the place of lodging, D Aloha Resort, only 10 minutes. If from Halmahera you want to take the ferry just four hours, so you don’t get tired at “If you go diving somewhere else it’s usually more than that. It can be 10 hours. That’s what weusually diver think twice about. Well , there’s an airport here,” explained the former chef.

Until now, Riyo claimed, still likes traveling to Morotai alone. But later he also doubles as a trip planner, where Riyo brings her friends to get to know Morotai Island better. Is that a model, presenter, lawyer, and other professions that have plenty of time for a vacation.

View guarantee

One thing that Riyo promised to her friends when inviting Morotai Island is a view guarantee withspots diving a variety of. According to him, it was not much offered at other tourist destinations. Moreover, tourist attractions in the Morotai Special Economic Zone. Because Jababeka Morotai – as a regional developer – has also provided supporting facilities for travelers, such as resorts and homestays, therefore, it is rarely that refuses Riyo’s offer when he offers a package trip to Morotai.

“From the natural beauty of the underwater, the view is guaranteed. View guarantee. The sea in Morotai is very different. I have been to diving places, ranging from domestic to overseas, such as in Australia.

If on the Morotai Island, diving spots it varies, I want to dive with ‘beautiful’; play with colorful small fish on coral but not deep, there is Morotai on it, or want to play ‘deep’, play on a boat (karam), play on currents are fast or slow, or do you want caving? Everything is there. Do you want to chase a mola or a killer whale? Here are the paths and times, “Riyo added.

In fact, Riyo added, in Morotai there is a 300-meter cluster of corals on Rao-Morotai Island which according to the International NGO Coral Research Institute is older than the coral group in Raja Ampat. It’s just that not many people know.

“Therefore, I invited many of my friends here to let them know. ‘Just relax, in Morotai there are many choices. So you will not be bored,’ I said. if we want to dive to Banda, for example. When we have finished exploring diving spots there, then we will go home. We can get just one spot. If you can get a lot in Morotai, just choose, “explained Riyo.

 Beyond diving

For those of you who don’t want to dive, Morotai Island is also a fun tourist spot. You will not run out of activity while there. On Morotai Island, you can explore beautiful uninhabited islands. One of them is to Dodola, an iconic destination on the island of Morotai. “There you can relax, take photos, swim on the edge of the island where the water is very clear,” explained Riyo.

“Fishing is also one of the activities that fascinate at Morotai. Because you do not necessarily have to go to the sea. Quite 30 minutes was able to tuna that big.

If fishing on the island of Java, it we must out to sea with a 5-6 hour trip. Later, so we can fish, directly into the fish processing at the seaside. More in-fillet flesh, so delicious sashimi really sure if eaten. Fresh really because, “said Riyo .

“In Morotai you can also see dolphins from the beach. Where else can it be. Must go to the sea. Must be a joint (money) first. If you want the adrenaline, You can go offroad and tracking to the King’s Waterfall, the cave where the Japanese army used to hide, or enter the forest to look for birds endemic to the islands of Eastern Indonesia, “explained Riyo.

According to Riyo, divers or travelers need to try a vacation to Morotai Island – at least once in a lifetime. Because the charm that is presented by Morotai Island is not inferior to Labuan Bajo, Raja Ampat or Bali.

“Many benchmark vote for diving it Labuan Bajo or Raja Ampat, and if you want cheap it was to Bali. But if I say, ‘cobain deh to Morotai’. Labuan Bajo that the current is strong, so just for the diver who got licenses advance.Beginners do not we can. In Morotai, there are diving spots for beginners, for advance too, we can dive in and out of the cave. Enter at a depth of 28 meters and exit at a depth of 32 meters. About the price, Morotai is also friendly, “he said.

The best season in Morotai

What about the best season itself in Morotai? Riyo suggested in March to September. Because this period is the bestseason sea ​​tourismin Morotai.

However, that does not mean that outside the season is not good. It’s just that after September, not all of them are good. “In the best season, all the tourism is good. The sea is calm and the water is clear. While for fishing tuna and big pelagic fish, it is better in September to February, because in that period the waves are strong,” he said.

“How many days should you spend on Morotai? In my opinion, if you are diving, 4-5 days is worth it. We recommend a week. Because for diving to one spot, it takes ‘time to eat’ all day, that is to leave early in the morning, return home in the afternoon. diving, the next day ‘beaten’ diving again, the body ‘fall out’. A week is the minimum, so that the body can rest. If you want to try the ‘land tour’ it only needs to add more days, “concluded Riyo.
