“Idyllic location and excellent hosts”
I highly recommend Doberai Eco Resort for couples or friends visiting Raja Ampat. It offers an excellent option for those that want an excellent location but don’t want to pay a premium price. The resort is nestled in a small bay which has it’s own beach.
The hosts were fantastic. We went for the dive package and they made us feel very safe when teaching us diving, encouraging us to push our boundaries. They bought me some shorts because my luggage was lost en route to Raja Ampat.
The food was good, I’m sure you’ll love the barbequed fish.
You should be aware that the resort, like many in the area, is an eco resort so the electricity is only available at night (but they did turn it on for us when we really needed it). There is no air conditioning and the showers are simple, but this only helps you feel closer to nature.
If you are looking for a nice place but not a huge price, I’m sure you’ll love it here.
