The extra short version: Remote, awesome, beautiful landscapes, wonderful diving among pristine reefs, friendly staff and management, exotic, relaxing. I hope not many of you find out about this place too soon so I can have it to myself next time I go. The short version: A very welcoming place. Very friendly local staff managed by very helpful and engaged... More

April 2014 returned for 2-weeks here, and stayed the 3rd week at the sister resort with A/C, Sorido. I prefer the deluxe Kri Eco cottage and more casual atmosphere. This is my favorite free-dive/snorkel site/resort, after visiting tired and damaged reefs world-wide for 30 years. I go on every dive boat 6 days/week so use a full body lycra UV... More

This is one of our favorite trips and our favorite dive vacation so far. Kri is such a well-run, well-planned resort that we really did not want to leave. In fact, we had to adjust to city life after our stay at Kri because we didn't wear shoes the entire time! The little things we thought would bother us really... More

The main attraction for us was diving- and this was spectacular! Coral, fish and general sea-life was better than i could have imagined. Lodge was comfortable, but basic, and food was simple and (mostly) delicious. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. A week was not enough to get in all the diving, as well as some serious R & R...paradise!!!... More

Diving in Raja Ampat is amazing and Kri is a romantic, although very simple, paradise with wonderful location. We really enjoyed the rooms on the water and the local food was great and plentiful. The staff was all very nice and friendly. We had such a great 10 day stay. Its strange for a dive resort not to offer boat... More

I stayed in 3 accommodations during the 17 days spent in Raja Ampat.(RA) Since RA is very difficult to reach and nearly all internal movement is by boat most visitors only stay in 1 lodging and lack any opportunity to compare accommodations. I can compare 3 options. Raja Ampat Dive Lodge ( an excellent on-land hotel), Doberai Eco Lodge a... More

This is our first time at Raja Ampat and the introduction could not be better! To begin with the house reef is amazing. Juvenile black tip reef sharks circling around right under the cottage which sits on stilts above the water. Lots of other fish as well. The diving is superb. Mike's Point, Sardines and Arborek are nice, plenty of... More

It is indeed a long journey, before you arrive at Kri Eco Resort, but who cares, when you get an experience beyond your expectations. Diving in Raja Ampat has been on my diving bucket list for a long time, and I was not disappointed. The diving is extraordinary with crazy colourful corals at “Melissa Garden” and “Anita Garden” at Fam... More
