Diving in Raja Ampat

- A Secret Retreats journey -
8 days / 7 nights
from 2,050 USD /person



This journey has been personally designed by Marit & Andrew Miners, founders of Misool Eco Resort and Foundation. Raja Ampat is the refuge we are all seeking when we try to find our way off the beaten path. It's a paradise for dreamers, for nature lovers and of course for divers. This journey is a story about individuals committed to a faraway place so special that no obstacle was insurmountable. Secret Retreats properties are linked by this same dream.

All our itineraries have generally been constructed on the basis of the rooms that have the most charm or best view, and not necessarily the first prices, nor the most expensive suites.
We can of course adjust according to your request.

Highlights of the Journey:

  • exotic underwater magic
  • tropical island
  • overwater bungalows

Raja Ampat: Scuba Diving Asia at its most breathtaking!
Probably the richest reefs in the world thanks to the initiative of our properties working with the local communities and establishing for instance a no-take zone and inspiring sustainable fishing practices outside of the no-take zone. Raja Ampat offers some of the world’s best scuba diving and snorkeling set on its naturally pristine archipelago. Environmentally friendly, working hand in hand with local communities a stay at Secret Retreats Properties in Raja Ampat is a superlative experience.
