Meridian Adventure Dive Resort

Meridian Adventure Marina Club and Dive Hotel in Waisai, a small town on the west coast of Waigeo Island in the Raja Ampat Islands. Currently accomodating 60 guests, this place is a great alternative choice to enjoy your incredible and unbelievable Raja Ampat experience. You can wake up refreshed in one of the modern, air-conditioned resort rooms or, step straight on to the dock from your very own private yacht. You’ll feel right at home in the freshness of the interiors, serviced throughout the day and maintained impeccably. There’s a great pool to lounge around plus the resort has Wi-Fi and up to 42 local and international TV channels.  Meridian Adventure is also committed to helping the local community develop their economy, on their terms, and at a sustainable pace that meets their expectations. If culture is what you love to immerse yourself in, then choose one of our Homestay Dive Adventures and start your day as the locals do. As part of this commitment, they are partnered with a number of local “homestays” in the Raja Ampat Regency. These are not homestays in the western sense, as you won’t be sharing a home but you will still be a guest of an Indonesian/Papuan family. Accommodation is provided on the family’s land in the type of housing typical of the area, and 3 meals a day are provided, making it a true cultural experience. Coming soon is a low-tech, but high style Glamping option.

The resort offers a fusion restaurant. The menu is designed with international flare, embracing food in its natural form, allowing for clean, uncomplicated flavors. Using fresh produce, we inject passion and character into each individual meal – from the vibrant breakfasts to refreshing lunches, sunset canapés and dinners. Our menus reflect our social consciousness in so far as we compliment the Waisai culinary possibilities by not competing with local restaurants.

The entire operation here is set up to focus on the three important components of dive holidays. High-tech, ultra-reliable equipment and transport to and from scuba dive sites. The perfect dive site every time in consideration to tidal streams and environmental conditions. And, modern, simple, clean accommodation with an exceptional on-site food and beverage program.

As a PADI Five Star Resort, scuba divers will enjoy the most outstanding and professional service, synonymous with both the PADI and Meridian Adventure names. Whether it is as a certified diver experiencing the world’s most diverse fringing coral reefs, or participating in a PADI scuba program, you will leave with memories to last a lifetime. The resort also offers Stand Up Paddle Boarding, boat rides, cultural excursions and Snorkeling!

Raja Ampat is the literal crossroads for the Indian and Pacific Ocean species, having the greatest coral reef biodiversity for its size in the world. With so many of the world’s reefs destroyed or suffering catastrophic decline, safeguarding this treasure both above and below the water is their mission.

At Meridian Adventures you can hike up the nearest mountain, sink your feet in the sand or let one of the high-tech purpose-built dive boats transport you with style and speed to each new adventure.
