Papua Paradise Eco Resort

Papua Paradise Resort lies along the pristine shoreline of the uninhabited island of Birie, Raja Ampat just 1.5 hours boat ride from Sorong. The island is teeming with exotic bird life, lush jungle foliage, and a spectacular array of fauna, while the reefs in the surrounding area offer world class diving.

Built in traditional style, Papua Paradise offers an exceptionally high standard of comfort and service. The local architecturally inspired water bungalows with essential facilities are built on stilts and made with traditional materials sourced locally. Featuring a total of 26 over-water bungalows (10 deluxe rooms & 16 superior rooms), all have spacious verandas overlooking the turquoise house reef and the Pacific Ocean. The rooms are equipped with safety deposit box pedestal fan, mosquito net, ocean view desk and long chairs on the sunset veranda. Spacious deluxe rooms feature double tiered verandahs and king-size beds while superior rooms are smaller with queen-size beds and a single tiered verandah. This ideal retreat away from civilization with only the echoing sound of exotic birds and the lapping of the waves under your bungalow, offers a simple yet comfortable lodging with a high standard of service.
