Papua Paradise Eco Resort, based along the pristine shoreline of the uninhabited island of Birie, is the ideal retreat away from civilisation; a haven for divers and non-divers alike.
Traditionally made using locally sourced materials, the over-water bungalows are perfect for those wanting to get away from crowded resorts and immerse themselves in the lush jungle foliage, with the sound of gently lapping waves right on your doorstep. Each water bungalow features a spacious veranda overlooking the turquoise sea that offers a stunning sunset view right from your private balcony.
The Seaview Restaurant, like the bungalows, also overlooks the unspoiled house reef. A variety of European and Indonesian cuisine is served up using only locally-grown produce or goods brought from the surrounding islands. With an emphasis on quality, both the food and service here is always exceptional.
After a long day of diving, guests can relax in Raja Ampat's only luxury spa where you are surrounded by the natural sounds of the jungle and sea. Let the professional spa therapists relax your mind and body with an array of treatments and facials, and feel at one with nature. Other activities include kayaking, snorkelling, trails through the forest and tours of the local village and islands, so you'll never be short of things to do, whether you're looking for relaxation or active adventures.
The excellent on-site PADI dive centre operates daily and allows guests to experience the truly remarkable marine life and encounter manta rays, wobbegongs, mandarin fish and reef sharks, to name just a few. Surrounded by untouched reefs and spectacular flora and fauna, this idyllic resort really does make for an unforgettable holiday.
Papua Paradise Eco Resort is located on the fringe of some of Raja Ampat's most coveted sites, ergo you can experience some of Indonesia's best diving at your own leisure.
