Waiwo Dive Resort, Raja Ampat
Waiwo Dive Resort Raja Ampat on Waigeo Island, Raja Ampat’s largest island, is located in one of earth’s most diverse marine life areas. Here the Pacific Ocean meets the Indian Ocean right in the heart of the Coral Triangle. Enjoy the tropical forest and long white sand beach right on your door step! While located here at the edge of nature, one can hear wild birds “kawing” and maybe even get a glimpse of the disappearing (marsupial) couscous!
The resort provides a memorable stay in cozy rooms and boasts an on-site dive center. The cottages are wooden and the air-conditioned rooms have a seating area, as well as a terrace. The ensuite bathroom is equipped with a shower and western toilets, and of course towels and free toiletries are also provided. Massage services are available on request.
An array of activities can be enjoyed at the resort, including diving, snorkeling and kayaking.
The restaurant by the beach serves a fine selection of Indonesian food.
The resort is a 5-minute drive to the airport (serviced by Wings Airlines) and a 15-minute drive from Waisai Harbour.
Garden View Rooms
The rooms are really suitable for guests who want to spend time enjoying the garden with interesting flowers after strolling on the beach. These rooms were built between the trees creating a calming atmosphere whether on the outside terrace or inside the room.
The restaurant will prepare your full-board meals from their kitchen, with locally caught fresh seafood & vegetables. The restaurant is located only a few meters away from the beach and offers panoramic views of the ocean while dining.
Enjoy Raja Ampat’s underwater world on their purpose built dive boats, located close to more than 50 world class dive sites. Generally guests dive three times a day taking lunch on a sandy beach or cave close to the 2nd dive spot and then head off for the 3rd dive.
