Misool Eco Resort is an exclusive dive resort and conservation centre located in remote southern Raja Ampat, Indonesia. Our private resort island is nestled deep in an archipelago of uninhabited islands, in the very epicentre of marine biodiversity.
Raja Ampat, or the Four Kings, is an archipelago comprising over 1,500 small islands, cays, and shoals surrounding the four main islands of Misool, Salawati, Batanta, and Waigeo, and the smaller island of Kofiau. Raja Ampat archipelago is the part of Coral Trianglewhich contains the richest marine biodiversity on earth.
Raja Ampat, Indonesia, is home to the world’s richest reefs and dive sites. Located at the heart of the Coral Triangle, the region sprawls over 4.6 million hectares and boasts the majority of the world’s reef-building corals. In an area the size of two football fields, scientists discovered more than six times as many coral species as live in the entire Caribbean Sea.
Raja Ampat’s reefs are home to over 700 species of mollusks and over 1,400 species of fish. Counted among those is the newly discovered ‘walking’ epaulette shark, commonly seen on night dives on our House Reef.
You can expect to dive a wide variety of sites during your stay at Misool Eco Resort. Our corner of southern Raja Ampat is particularly famous for its untouched reefs festooned with wildly colourful soft corals, expansive hard coral gardens, massive gorgonian sea fans, and rich reef life.
