Marazul Dive Resort is located in Westpunt, western tip of the island, 30 minute drive from the airport. Surrounded by the green nature of this part of the island you have found your vacation spot if you like to enjoy peace and quiet in a tropical setting. MDR is a privately owned, oceanfront, quiet, gated community nestled among lush tropical plants and palm trees set on a small cliff. The stairs on the cliff wall lead you into the warm crystal clear turquoise water of the sea for snorkeling, swimming and diving. The house reef is within a few hundred feet from the stairs and full of many forms of sea life. The location and its beautiful open grounds with palm trees, tropical flowers, and a sparkling pool invite you for a week or two or a winter getaway. Landscape offers the perfect postcard photo at every turn. The unobstructed sunset seaviews, complete with trade winds, sunshine, beautiful bird life and security.
