For the past five years, my husband and I have taken a two-week scuba vacation in May to the South Pacific or coral triangle. First, there was Taveuni, Fiji, with abundant fish in a rainbow of soft corals. I kinda felt sorry for the next place I would visit. But that would be North Sulawesi (Indonesia), at Siladen – with...

We stayed at Misool for 12 days in May and absolutely loved it! The water cottage was just as pictured, and it was great to have that beautiful view and nice breeze the whole time. We never shut our doors or used the air conditioner once, it just wasn’t necessary. The netting around our bed was sufficient to keep the... More

I traveled to Misool Eco Resort with my two children and was instantaneously stunned by the beauty, staff, accommodations and fantastic diving! The water cottages are definitely quite romantic (which I was not properly using with my two children!). The diving and guides were safe and truly wonderful with my 11 year old who dove 15 times during our week... More

We have travelled quite a lot and have seen more than a single high-end resort including the likes of Four Seasons and Six Senses, and I must say that I was deeply impressed by what has been put together in Misool, not even accounting for the "handicap" of the remote location. We very much enjoyed our stay, really forgot about... More

Dear Capi W, thanks for your very generous feedback. We are flattered to be compared with Six Senses or The Four Seasons - you are very kind. Djamal is indeed deserving of some special mention. He is a gem, a true professional with a heart of gold and a winning smile. I'm happy that you and your family were pleased... More

Tucked into a remote corner of Raja Ampat we found a gem in Misool Eco Resort. We are dive shop owners of Aquatic World in North Syracuse, NY. We promote group travel for divers with destinations worldwide. We do not take anyone anywhere we have not been to before, and when we visit we look for high standards in four... More

IT WAS A PARADISE ON EARTH! One of the high end resorts in Indonesia and gives you the priceless underwater experiences. Although I only spent few days there for the work, it will be the best memories ever.

When dreaming of a memorable and unique place to visit for our honeymoon, we had in mind an impossible combination of: easy access to world class diving sites; a remote idyllic island paradise away from everything; separate and very comfortable over water bungalows (where we could be dazzled by the stars when having our nightly showers and overwhelmed by constant...

This is one of those moments when I'm torn: I often use TripAdvisor when I'm considering a destination so I want to return the favor to those who have written useful reviews...but I'm tempted to keep this little slice of paradise a secret since it is such a unique and special place.
