Papua Paradise Resort lies along the pristine shoreline of the uninhabited island of Birie, Raja Ampat. The island is teeming with exotic bird life, lush jungle foliage, and a spectacular array of fauna, while the reefs in the surrounding area offer world-class diving. This ideal retreat away from civilization, echoing with only the sound of the birds and the lapping of the waves under the bungalows. The resort also offers the only luxury spa in Raja Ampat. Spa in Paradise is a place of healing, relaxation, and rejuvenation. This tailor-made paradise for divers is the perfect place to see manta rays, sharks, and shoals of schooling fish, and explore reef slopes with some of the widest diversity of corals in the world. Seek out rare dugongs, hike at sunrise to see the stunning birds of paradise, and meet the wonderful local people of Raja Ampat. All this and more before ending the day with a perfect ocean sunset view from your private balcony.

My husband and I stayed at Papua Paradise for 4 nights and it was the most memorable trip we ever had. We were incredibly lucky to have the whole place up ourselves which made it more magical. The view of and access to the ocean was unbelievable and snorkling to see the incredible aquatic life was an unbelievable experience. The staff was fantastic and so friendly, especially Denny who gave us a fascinating overview of Indonesian history. Definitely would recommend!

We would like to thank Joan, his wife and his team for the amazing job they do at Papua Paradise. Joan is the best host you can ever imagine, he is always available to help you enjoying the best experience of your life. The watervilla are amazing and made by locals materials and in the traditional way. The reef is the best and falling asleep with the sound of nature is magic. We are thankful we spent our honeymoon in this paradise with amazing people. Thank you GG

Had the best experience here, incredible views, food, dive sites, accommodation and marine life. Yet the star of the show was the staff, all were super friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend booking if planning a stay in Raja Ampat. -Clay

My husband & I just spent 8 days at Papau Paradise and it was pure bliss. My heart is so full, I already miss everyone so much and am dreaming of a return trip! I was a little apprehensive about going to a dive resort after 2 years of the pandemic but everything exceeded expectations and was incredible. I have so much to say but these are the highlights: Access to the iconic Raja Ampat dive sites (Fam Islands eg. Melissa’s garden and Kri eg. Blue Magic, Mike’s Point) Overall, the service was AMAZING. Everyone is so kind and welcoming Dive crew: We had our own personal dive guide, Pater, who had an eagle eye for spotting sea life and helped us gain more confidence in our diving. Our dive time started at 32 min and by our last dive, we were at 60 min! Also, the captains were experts at safely navigating through all weather conditions and the deck hand helped us suit up for all 18 dives - setting up our bcd, air and putting on our fins for us! Food: Delicious fresh food, we enjoyed every meal, especially the soups and fresh fruit juices! We celebrated my husband’s birthday while we were there and the staff made him a birthday cake with our favorite cake flavor and sang/played the birthday song for him! Spa: The spa is closed for renovations but they offer in room massages, which I highly recommend. We got 4 while we were there. Sri is such a good masseuse and one of the kindest people I have met Accommodations: Nice villa with ocean views. At night, they do turndown service, light mosquito coils and pull the mosquito nets down. We were surprised with how little mosquitos were at the resort If you’re looking for a sign to book your trip at Papau Paradise, here it is. Book your trip, you won’t regret it!! Thank you for making our trip so wonderful & unforgettable, Papau Paradise!

A truly beautiful resort. Amazing water bungalows, built using traditional Papuan construction methods. Gorgeous views from every bungalow over the ocean. Every morning watching 10+ reef sharks swimming around, along with countless other schools of fish, sting rays, coral etc etc. The managers Ben and Anne really thought of everything to make our stay seamless, both very knowledgable about diving and marine life and very well organised. Highly recommend the excursions, especially sunset bird river boat and dive day trips to Mensur and Fam. Our super considerate local dive guide Julens deserves a special thank you for making all our excursions really special and his excellent local knowledge of the dive sites, wildlife and the whole area. Food was simple but tasty and served by really attentive and sweet waitress Asti. A really relaxing atmosphere helped by Ben, Anne and all of the local team who feel like a family. Wish we never had to leave!

We were the first couple to visit & stay at Papua Paradise on the first day they opened up after the lockdown. We cannot stop raving about the resort from the friendly staff, the beautiful scenic location & the gorgeous room which we were upgraded to for free😊 the food was more than we expected; lunch & dinner were three course meals and we couldn't wait for time to eat lol. The manager Matteo was amazingly helpful with all our needs from quick response & communications in trying to arrange our transport & payment details. The dive instructor Anne is super friendly & helpful. Our snorkelling guide Ruben was friendly & helpful as well. We highly recommend this place to our friends and to anyone looking to relax, cut off from the busy modern world & just enjoy the quiet beauty of this place. The entire time we were there, everyone wore masks & took the Corona virus seriously.

We stayed at Papua Paradise in Nov 19. It is not easy to reach it from Europe but paradise has its price! Once arrived you are rewarded, the place is really nice, each bungalow very comfortable with a great view on the sunset. The house reef offers a nice snorkeling and diving in Raja Ampat is just great: so much life under the water! And colors! Do a day trip to Fam, it is the perfect postcard view. All the staff and the manager were very kind, we definitely recommend the resort!

We go to Papua Paradise every year and here are our ten cheers for this amazing place! Cheer 1. The location is perfect, just 90 minutes from Sorong, a secluded island, surrounded by fabulous uncrowded diving but near to Kri and Fam if you want Cheer 2. The bungalows are delightful, private, over water, beautifully constructed and furnished. There are always improvements and changes on every visit Cheer 3 The restaurant and meals. Meals are varied, tasty, imaginative and the chefs are more than willing to cope with dietary needs/preferences. I have a few special favourite dishes which are served up soon after we arrive, The restaurant staff are patient, ever smiling and efficient, even coping with thoughtless divers trying to sneak in wearing their wet swimming clothes! (my pet hate) Cheer 4 The welcome On the jetty makes every guest feel special, with dancing, singing and cheering from the staff. The musical skills are astonishing! Cheer 5 The dive centre is well managed, organised and safe. Guests’ wishes are sought and actioned, So you can have ‘fishy’ or macro, currents or calm, local or day trip. Rental gear is well maintained and in good condition Cheer 6 The dive guides. A mixture of local guides and those from Manado and Bali are all competent. We now ask for Hervil but he needs days off during our stays so we experience others. Let the dive managers know what sort of guide you want. Hervil takes us on, sometimes, wild adventures to new dive sites, knows our preferences and is considerate and fun guide...and no, you can’t ask for him if we are there! Cheer 7 The diving. This is why we come to Raja Ampat and it doesn’t disappoint. The island is surrounded by dozens of great sites. There is always something new. I’ve never seen so many fish, blocking out the light, playing on the reef or in the current, and the macro life is crazy too. It’s a photographer’s dream Cheer 8 The whole team. PP has a great team in all departments. Housekeeping staff are wonderful, putting our room back in order every day, boat crew, back room staff, front office, laundry, carpentry, grounds staff...a mixture of locals and people from other parts of Indonesia, with a good team spirit and willingness to chat when they meet guests...and sing and dance too! A visit to local villages between dives, with a boat captain from that village, is a real treat. Cheer 9 Island animals and plants . Birie Island is full of butterflies, birds, insects (not mozzies thankfully) etc. Just walking along the paths you see a huge number of flowers, orchids, interesting trees. From our room we see dolphins, mantas, occasional whales and the elusive dugongs. Cheer 10 The spa. It’s perfect. The ambiance and the staff are guaranteed to help you relax and de stress. I could stay there all afternoon.
