The world’s best-kept secret in the Raja Ampat (Four Kings) region of West Papua in Indonesia, that diving aficionados have been keeping, is out of the bag. Recognized as having among the richest marine life in the world, the remote islands of Raja Ampat were only accessible via sailboats. Now this breathtaking setting has finally found fitting accommodation. The ultimate hideaway has arrived in the form of Misool Eco Resort!
Misool Eco Resort is a 4-star resort comprised of 10 individual guest cottages, a restaurant, and a Dive Center on the east side of Batbitim Island. The above-water villas sit atop stilts in rustic Papuan style, with traditional straw roofs and adjoining private bathrooms.
Built to the highest standard of comfort and safety, the resort is tastefully appointed to complement the area’s beauty. The spacious cottages have other worldy views, taking advantage of Raja Ampat’s prevailing breezes and glorious tropical sunrises.
