Sorido Bay is truly unique. It is difficult to compare it to other resorts in Raja Ampat due to its special history. Instead, I have tried to capture a few practical observations for people who are facing the dilemma of choosing between a luxury live-aboard or a land-based resort like Sorido Bay from which to explore the central region.

I'm tempted not to write a review to try to keep it a little under the radar, but 'sharing is caring'... We arrived at Sorido Bay with high expectations having had the privilege to dive in many beautiful corners of the world before, but this place is special. The diving is like nowhere else we've been in terms of the... More

Twelve of us spent two weeks at Sorido Bay resort and without exception we all agreed it was a fabulous resort. The accommodations were very nice, food was great and the diving was exceptional.

I only have positive comments on this resort. 1. Management. The managers, Jutta and Steve did everything possible to make our stay as enjoyable and easy as possible.

I spent the first week of May 2014 at this resort snorkeling and free diving, and this is the best of all the places I've enjoyed. My first time with a local (Papuan) snorkel buddy who was a good diver, cheerful, musically talented and exceptionally keen eyed under water. I spent 2 weeks at the sister resort, Kri Eco Resort...

However, after seeing some of the recent negative comments, I felt compelled to share my thoughts. Positives: 1. The diving is fantastic. This is literally the best diving in the world (center of marine biodiversity) and you... More
