Misool Eco Resort is an exclusive dive resort and conservation centre located in remote southern Raja Ampat, Indonesia. Their private resort island is nestled deep in an archipelago of uninhabited islands, in the very epicentre of marine biodiversity. Your stay at Misool Eco Resort directly supports the numerous conservation initiatives and provides sustainable employment opportunities to local people, entirely decoupled from the extraction of marine resources.
Their island and scuba diving sites are surrounded by their own Marine Protected Area, and inside the 46,000 sq km Raja Ampat Shark and Manta Sanctuary which they helped to create. They are located 165 km (105 miles) from the nearest port, and the nearest village is 20 km away by boat.
With a maximum capacity of just 32 guests and a staff-to-guest ratio of 3 to 1, they offer exclusive diving holidays, surrounded by the world's richest reefs. Accommodations have been meticulously designed for comfort, privacy, and sustainability. All of the accommodations feature Balinese-style open air bathrooms, air-conditioning, fresh hot and cold showers, mini-bars, in-room safes, and handcrafted furniture and fittings. Eight rustically luxurious Water Cottages are located in the North Lagoon, just steps from the Dive Centre and restaurant. The Water Cottages are built on stilts over the water. For lazy afternoons with a good book, there is a hammock built right into the veranda. The view from your veranda is framed by a traditional grass roof, offering a high degree of privacy as well as shade. Stairs lead down from your veranda to the North Lagoon, and the House Reef is just a few fin kicks away.
Misool Eco Resort's Dive Centre is located in the North Lagoon, built on stilts overlooking the turquoise water. The Dive Centre is spacious and airy, and well-suited to professional photographers and videographers. Access to the water from the Dive Centre is either from stairs leading directly down into the North Lagoon, or by way of the jetty, where their 4 dive boats moor up.
They generally schedule 3 guided boat dives per day, as well as either a dusk dive or a night dive. Because the dive sites are so close, they usually go back to the resort for the surface interval after each dive. They are flexible, and are happy to tailor the dives to your needs - just let the dive guides know what you're interested in seeing, and they'll do their best to accommodate you. They offer a variety of different dive packages, and all include free Nitrox to qualified divers.
Resort Dive Packages Start at $3287 per person
