Pulau Hatta (Hatta Island) is part of the Banda Islands in Maluku province, Indonesia and has lovely beaches and healthy coral reefs.

Understand[edit]

The original name of the island is 'Rozengain' island. It was renamed 'Hatta', to commemorate the first Vice President, Mohammad Hatta, who was exiled in Banda Neira.

There are two villages in Hatta Island. Most of the accommodation is in the Old Village (on the Northwest side on the island). The Old Village doesn't have its own water supply so you are recommended to use water sparingly.

Get in[edit]

There is at least a boat every two days connecting Hatta Island and Neira Island. The boat leaves Hatta Island in early morning for Banda Neira, then returns from Neira Island to Hatta Island around 11AM-1PM.

Sleep[edit]

The village in Hatta Island set a regulation for all the accommodation to offer full board package (breakfast-lunch-dinner included) at a fixed price of IDR 250,000 per night per person (as of Oct 2018). Solo traveller may be charged 20% more. This is to avoid price war between the accommodation and to avoid tourists being ripped off. Some of the accommodation may try their luck to charge higher during peak season. It it recommended to check the current regulated price in Neira Island before you go there.
