Couple one of the top diving spots in the world with a beautiful resort carefully placed into the natural beauty of Misool Island then pour in gracious and professional staff, great food and great camaraderie, shake and pour over ice.....it doesn't get much better than this! Actually, we didn't do much drinking because we made 17 dives in one week...

Dear MayaguezanaPR, thanks for your kind words about Misool Eco Resort.

....and you will have no regrets! The experience was exactly as advertised on their webpage and as reviewed here and other places. The diving in the "no take" zone was spectacular.....I'd describe it as a museum as to how things were before we(humans) mucked it all up. Sharks were common, soft corals amazing, sea fans enormous, and the Mantas huge!...

Dear Greenday61, it sounds like you enjoyed your stay as much as we enjoyed having you here! Thanks for your very kind and thorough review. Comparing diving in our No-Take Zone to a museum is a wonderful compliment. We hope that all our hard work is paying off, and it looks like it is. I'm glad to hear both you...

Not sure what more can be added after all of the glowing reviews below. Misool is truly a special place. I'd been dreaming of traveling there after reading the NYT article a while back, the only thing causing me pause was that my wife and I weren't divers. Avid snorkelers, yes, and absoloute lovers of the ocean, but for medical...

Dear andyprchrd, you are absolutely right - you *have* contributed to something very valuable to the conservation of the world's richest reefs. Without likeminded folks like yourself to come and appreciate the incredible marine biodiversity around Misool Eco Resort, all of our efforts would be useless. I'm glad you also appreciated the warm hospitality of our staff. They do a...

In early March, I visited Misool Eco Resort for 7 nights along with my daughter's family.

We live on our sailboat and traveled through Raja Ampat for about a month. We did not stay at Misool Eco, but patronized the restaurant, met the staff, and enjoyed several days at one of their moorings while diving in the area. Our travels gave us the opportunity to visit several resorts in the region, and we believe it does...

Dear Nomadicmama, I'm sure that during your five years sailing through Southeast Asia and the tropical Pacific you've seen some incredible reefs, and I'm delighted to hear you rank ours among the best.

I recently spent seven days at Misool Eco Resort with a group of 22 divers from Ocean First Divers in Boulder, Colorado. After a solid two days of plane rides and a five hour boat ride from Sorong, our weary band of travelers were greeted on the resort's pristine beach with cold, eucalyptus-soaked towels, and fresh fruit juices. This was...

Never have I travelled so far and for so long and yet been completely delighted with the destination. My experiences at the Misool Eco Resort in the Raja Ampat Region of Indonesia mitigated the arduous nature of the adventurous journey to get there. MER is not a typical tourist destination.
