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

Most dive sites within 25 minutes or substantially less, great local reef. Dive guides good. Good camera set-up area. Excellent clean-up and gear storage area. Kid friendly. Villas clean, major mosquito problem as we stayed on the... More

Dear S.Steinfort, It’s wonderful that you and your wife enjoyed the amazing diving that we have in such close proximity to the resort. That week we were lucky enough to have many divers observe oceanic manta rays from only a few meters away, as well as mobular rays, dolphins, epaulette sharks, and countless schools of fish. The accommodation on South... More

This was my fifth dive trip to Indonesia. There is no way around the brutal flight schedule. From North America, I had 5 flights there and 6 flights to return. I highly recommend flying in the front of the plane to cushion the blow and getting to Jakarta or Bali a day or 2 early. The property itself is amazing.... More

We spent 12 idyllic days here. This place is truly paradise and a divers and snorkelers dream. There is so much to see right off the deck and boardwalk, its like constant eye candy in terms of fish, turtles, sharks, corals etc. I thought I'd be doing a lot more reading, but instead spent most of my free time gazing...
