Looking for somewhere to dive, snorkel, relax, experience traditional culture and see incredible wildlife?

You’ve found it.

Raja Ampat is one of the world’s last wild places. A vast sprawl of tropical island jewels amid seas renowned as being the richest on our planet – a nursery and refuge for coral and fish species that are rapidly disappearing from elsewhere in the region, and the perfect place to really get away from it all.

Staying in traditional Papuan accommodation in Raja Ampat – accommodation owned and operated by local people – provides a unique cultural experience at an affordable price. It really is the best way to enjoy Raja Ampat. You’ll be supporting the local economy and empowering the traditional owners of Raja Ampat in their efforts to preserve both their environment and way of life.
