It's located on Kri Island which has been declared a “no take” zone and the reefs in close proximity to our resorts are regarded as among the best in Raja Ampat. The island pace is unhurried - the beaches white - the water azure blue. You can almost step out onto pristine coral reef and many of the best sites are at most within 1 to 15 minutes boat ride from the jetties. This leaves you to relax on a tropical island paradise only minutes after your snorkel or dive.
History & community
Since 1993 the resorts have been pro-active in conservation initiatives and working with the local communities.
10% of profits are donated to support local communities and conservation initiatives. More local people are employed than any other operator, meaning about 90% of staff are Papuans.
Visiting students briefed about activities to do around the island and what creatures to expect on land and at sea, led by guides Fredrik, Nando, Makson, and Yahya.
Record-breaking Reef & Wildlife
Less than 1 minute from the resorts is the famous ‘Cape Kri’ reef which holds the World’s Record for the highest number of reef fish species ever counted. The record stands from 2012 when Dr. G. Allen counted 374 different species in one single dive – The shear numbers of fish is mind-blowing.
Shady pathways meander through the tree line to the restaurant. The atmosphere is one of natural peace and total relaxation. The resort grounds have a wide variety of plant and wildlife: Wild orchids, monitor lizards, furry marsupial Cuscus, tropical birds such as Lorikeets, Eclectic parrots, Paradise Kingfishers to Glossy Mantled Manucodes and Cockatoos. Eventually you may even spot a Tree Kangaroo or Sugar glider.
Kayaking from your room over pristine coral reef
A total of 13 rooms in 3 categories (4x Papuan – 7 x Superior – 2 x Deluxe) boast of their no-frills minimal design which facilitates one’s appreciation of nature. The use of local Papuan materials lend a truly special charm. Free Wi-fi access is available and all cottages are equipped with electric fans for those still nights when a breeze is not strong enough. Stay a week or longer and find comfort in the unique architectural design.
The resort is made of locally sourced and low-impact materials; shaped and equipped to sustain the excesses of natural forces typical of the coastal area and tropical climate; styled very much in accordance with the local tradition of architecture. The setting allows incredible views of sunrise and sunset and gentle breezes in the evening.
