Just spent 9 days diving at MER. It is a bit of a trek to get to but well worth it. Don't hesitate to go. It is an extremely special place. Apart from the lovely friendly staff, great food and relaxing accommodation all made from recycled wood, the conservation work they are doing is extremely special. Make sure to attend... More

Dear Rosannad6, It feels like just the other day that you and the rest of the guests from your trip were here for such a memorable stay! It still makes me smile thinking about all of the stories that were shared at dinner time and the reenactment of dive techniques at the barbeque dinner on the last evening! It is... More

I went to Misool Eco Resort again (5th time). The diving seems to be better every year. For the past 7 years fishing around the resort is not allowed anymore, so there is more fish every time. A few years ago i saw a shark every now and then. Now there are sharks on every dive. Saw mantas several times.... More

Hello markokruidenier, Increasing marine biodiversity and biomass does seem to be the trend in the No Take Zone around Misool Eco Resort, and we should definitely believe you with five separate visits under your belt! We actually do have some studies performed over the past 8 years in which the marine biomass was studied in different dive locations within the... More

We have just returned from a 9 day stay at MER, for us we had experienced a dive that will remain in our memories for a lifetime. After having dived for 27 years all over Asia Pacific, here at 'Magic Mountain' on our last diving day we encountered 6+1 (a pregnant manta) Big Reef Mantas. Particularly it was the last... More

Where could I possibly begin except to thank Marit, Andrew, Mark and Sue and all the other guests staying on the island with us that week (7th-14th Oct) for one of the best holidays the fella & I have ever enjoyed. We booked Misool after a week of diving in Lembeh. Getting there was a nightmare, which made the actual... More

I plan to have some snorkelling in this trip and sunshine of course. Though the place is far away and take almost one day or more, but you will cry out when you see the beautiful reefs and corals around the pier. I knew there are many customers comparing this to Resort like Maldives or Seychelles. I had been to... More

Misool Eco Resort was spectacular, the Diving was truly excellent, fish and sharks galore and their cause was better still! What a wonderful feeling Andrew and Marit (the founders) must have daily, to have successfully stopped shark finning in the area and created two large patrolled no take zones.... To then see baby sharks swimming every day in the shallow... More

Possibly the worlds best diving! You are really in the middle of nowhere, which means sacrificing the internet for 5 minute boat rides to see mantas. Yes, getting there may mean loosing a day on each end of your vacation but you will not be disappointed if you are really into diving. The resort itself is really naturally beautiful. We... More

We spent a week here in December and completely fell in love with the island.The journey for most people to get there is grim and the four hour boat journey just adds to that. However, once you arrive everything is forgotten as you relax into island life. Our room was comfortable and perfectly situated at the end of a walkway... More
