Our Environmental Commitment on Bangka Island

Bangka clean up

At Murex Bangka we aim to conserve our beautiful natural environment

Murex Bangka is the only resort on Bangka Island which harnesses solar power to provide hot water bathrooms, AC throughout the night and 24 hour electricity. Our installation of 38 solar panels ensures that our restaurant, camera room and spa have power throughout the day. We are extremely proud of our commitment to preserving the natural environment on Bangka Island and to making our resort as sustainable as possible.

Environmental sustainability is something which we pride ourselves upon. Our founding father, Dr. Batuna, was a pioneer of diving in this region and sought to protect it.

Dr. Batuna was inducted to the International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame in 2018 (alongside Dr. Sylvia Earle)  and we strive to honor his memory in every single dive trip.
