Reef Resort

Raja Ampat Dive Lodge is located at the heart of the most spectacular diving in northern Raja Ampat. Mere minutes from the famous Manta aggregation sites and the fish-filled dives at the western edge of the Dampier Strait, this intimate lodge is the perfect place to experience the most bio-diverse reefs in the world.

The staff of Raja Ampat Dive Lodge has been handpicked to ensure that everyone who stays here feels like part of the family.  Fronted by a shallow white sand beach and backed by the ever-verdant Papuan rainforest, the bungalows are surrounded by natural beauty perfect for couples and families traveling with kids who love nature.

The beachfront property offers fan and air-conditioned with a cozy seating area, wardrobe and desk. The ensuite bathroom comes with hot/cold shower facility, hairdryer and free toiletries.  There are 10 bungalows that can be double or twin bed configurations. The on-site open-air restaurant serves both western and Indonesian food. When not exploring above and beneath the sea, you can relax by the garden or terrace. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available around the restaurant area. This is the perfect place to unwind before or after a trip on the Raja Ampat Explorer.

Diving!

A full line of Mares/Oceanic dive equipment (10 sets of BCDs, regulators, fins and masks) rental gear. Tanks and weights will be included in the dive package. At present, divers will only be able to get air fills, but plans are being made to offer Nitrox. Three fiberglass speed boats with three 40 hp outboard engines and a sun awning will take divers (8 guests in each boat) to the Ampats world-class dive sites. Raja Ampat is not really about rare critters or seeing sharks, there are generally not as many of what one would call – classic critters or big marine life. What is so special about this area is the scenery and in places the abundance of fish life.

 Dives where you are inundated with vast schools of fish, on the best of dives fish seem to block out the sun there are so many. Mellow drift dives across the most beautiful coral slopes and channels, unique dives with heavily undercut mushroom shaped islands with gorgeous coral growth virtually to the surface.

 Some of the best coral gardens we have seen are in this area. Taking a live-aboard will allow you to see not just these great fish dives but also the topside highlights of this area too. The real “essence of Raja Ampat” is the incredible mix of wonderful topside scenery with great reefs to dive on.

 Another highlight of this area is taking rides on the tender boat through the most outstanding island scenery of any dive destination anywhere.
