Yes getting there, especially from the US, is a huge slog across multiple continents and time zones. But it's completely worth it. Food and hospitality were just excellent. Both done to excess and we were all made to feel really special. The lodging was out of a dream. We stayed in one of the water bungalows and everything from the... More

Dear Zeniatata, Wonderful to hear that diving with us was your favorite trip! I'm very glad that you appreciated the expertise of our Dive Team, yummy food, welcoming staff, comfortable lodgings, and green building techniques. And you are right that our energy-saving air conditioners are not overwhelmingly effective - they'll drop the temperature a few degrees, but not more. In... More

for a snorkeller who has tried it all, raja ampat is definitely the best. although misool eco resort is primarily geared to divers, it has a wonderful program for those who look at the underwater world from the top. located in a natural paradise eighty miles from anywhere (if you consider sorong anywhere, which i don't), it nevertheless has a...

Being back in a chilly London probably colours my memory, but even allowing for that, Misool was worth the 4 flights and 5 hour boat ride to get there. It wasn't without some areas of possible imporvement, but overall it is a wonderful resort. I would say that the website probably akes it look a littl emore like the kind... More

Just got back from my 6th visit to Raja Ampat and my 3rd stay at Misool Eco Resort. MER is better than any other operator or liveaboard in the area, and the diving gets more incredible with every year that the no-take zone is in place: I saw grey reef sharks, whitetips and blacktips on every dive. Every year there... More

After reading a very negative review of Misool Eco Resort, I must add my voice to the vast majority of visitors who raved about the resort. Our stay in early March 2012 was everything we were hoping for, from the stunning beauty of the location to the terrific staff to the fantastic diving. We certainly hope to return in the... More

The topside scenery around this resort is stunning to behold. And the diving is certainly good, if not great (due to large amount of damage from former explosive fishing practices.) However, this really was the most expensive and difficult to reach resort I have ever been to in three decades of dive travel. Coming from LAX it took 2 days... More

Misool Eco-Resort offers a stunning aquatic experience, currently oriented towards diving enthusiasts, without skimping on the comfort that provides for a well-needed rest at the end of a long day above or below the surface of the crystal clear waters. As others on Tripadvisor have noted, the quality of the food is in a league of its own, easily challenging... More

I have dived and snorkeled extensively throughout the world and I have never had a more enjoyable week of diving than the one I just spent at Misool Ecoresort. Every dive was at a minimum very good and many were fantastic. From pygmy seahorse to manta and mobular rays, from schools of large bumphead wrasse to ornate ghost pipefish, from... More

One thing you have to remember if you are lucky enough to come to Misool is that it is VERY remote. It is a place for travellers, not tourists. You will not find infinity pools or golden lapelled waiters serving drinks that look like forests, but what you will find is an absolutely stunning island (or rather, two islands connected... More

The Misool Eco Resort is the BEST...not because it is the perfect combination of natural luxury, amazing culinary delights, wonderful spa treatments and the spectacular diving in such a remote area...it is the best because this resort has been created in harmony with our world - working with local villages to construct the villas, creating a no-take zone and protecting...
