Misool Eco Resort

Five-star resort on its own private island in the remote Rajah Ampat Archipelago

Misool Eco Resort

The five-star Misool Eco Resort occupies its own private island in the remote Rajah Ampat Archipelago in West Papua, Indonesia’s most easterly province and the Indonesian half of New Guinea island. The island is 20km from the nearest village, and features white sand beaches, pristine reefs and several lagoons.

The spacious and well-designed water cottages are built on stilts and have hammocks over the water and access to the reef just off your doorstep. The villas are very private and well appointed, with either two or three bedrooms each.

Misool is surrounded by its own 1220 sq km “no take zone” so there is an abundance of fish everywhere. Both snorkellers and divers are well catered for with a fine house reef as well as over 25 dive sites within 15 minutes’ boat ride. The diving is truly world class: many wildlife documentaries have been filmed here. Famous dive sites include Nudi Rock, Magic Mountain, Yillet and Boo Windows.


8 water cottages; 4 villas of two and three bedrooms, spa, on-site dive centre, beach restaurant. All the wooden cottages and villas feature air-conditioning, mini bar, safe and open air bathrooms.

We loved this trip! The part arranged by Reef and Rainforest was very professional and thoughtful. Overall, we saw many highlights. We very strongly recommend the Seatrek experience. It was amazing and just what we were looking for. We believe Reef and Rainforest Clients interested in the archipelago would really enjoy the trip and the experience. The food was outstanding and the boat crew terrific. The guide was also excellent and they had arranged really interesting, informative and beautiful trips on land on different islands each day. Even the day spent on tour before boarding the ship was fascinating and well guided. We have taken many trips with Reef and Rainforest – Galapagos, Madagascar, Brazil, Peru, Indonesia. Our guides and have also been very good birders, and this was important to us. We have appreciated the way Reef and Rainforest arranges trips and the eco-tourism nature of the trips. It has been a good fit for us.
