We left earlisch in the day for a 3-5 hour (depending on the traffic) from Jakarta to go the resort the Ocean Queen just west of Pelabuhan ratu. The Ocean Queen Resort has several villas with 3-4 rooms so you can stay there with a family. It is right on the beach with lovely cabanas looking out over the sea and just around the corner there is a little bay which is a little more suited for swimming with children. We had two lovely villas for the whole family. One of the things I really liked (other than the beautiful beach, the nice pool and the lovely fragrant frangipannies) was that we didn't have to do any cleaning up because there is a houseboy that does all of that for you, isn't that great! We bought some fish on the market after one of our sightseeing trips and the houseboy cleaned and grilled it for us on the BBQ. And I must not forget to mention the amount of fruit he came back with after we sent him to get some for us (apperently that is what houseboys do - clean up after you, beautifully grill fish, and fruit and other necessities shopping for you on their motorbikes). Wish I had one at home! We did a few sightseeing trips to a bat cave and the town Pelabuhan ratu but the relaxing atmosphere at the Ocean Queen makes you just really want to sip on a cocktail looking out over the Javan Sea in your own private cabana!
