For dive lovers this is the place to go. The home of diving in the most majestuous diving spot in the world - Raja Ampat. Conscious to Nature and the inhabitants of Papua, it is a genuine gem of winding back and submerging to the beauty of the underwater abundance of wildlife. Great food, simple but clean Papuan Style huts and beers and wine available to enjoy the sunset.If you are looking for aircon and other posh venue related luxuries, go somewhere else. If you look for good stories and skill full staff, this is the place to be

Kri's accommodation is better since my last visit in 2004. Facilities improved with a change from the usual Indonesian "mandi" to the showers that Americans & Europeans are used to, though if you want fresh water & air conditioning it's better to pay more at Kri's sister resort of Sorido Bay 500 metres down the beach. The restaurant's area has been expanded, food was plentiful, varied & healthy, though if you want cordon bleu cuisine, pay a lot more & stay not this far off the beaten track! I opted to do only 2 dives per day, spending afternoons taking aerial video from my drone. Reefs are still in good condition with "Sardines" fish life stunning when there's current. Had a close encounter with a reef manta at "Manta Sandy" (where else?) though the oceanic mantas show up a few months after my stay in November. The dive boats are also improved, now with increased cover from the sun with larger awnings, though a word of advice. Kri's management need to provide some degree of cushioning on the boat's seating for the long distance trips to places like Fam when the sea is "lumpy". After that trip I felt I needed a bum transplant mine was so sore! The staff & management go out of their way to be helpful and a special thank you to dive guide Frans for diving down to the sea bed to retrieve one of my BCD's weight pouches which had fallen out. As this was my 3rd visit overall, the 2nd being Sorido Bay in 2007, I got a hefty 20% discount for two return visits. Every little bit helps!

I've been several times in RA and always spent my time at papua-diving on Kri island. Diving is above all expectations and the eco resort, crew and food also and it's very remote. It's under European (Dutch) management and 5* PADI.

We stayed 2 weeks in the resort, the houses are simple and fine, but there are no toilets and badrooms inside. Bare in mind that in the whole resort there is no fresh water for showering or for rinsing your dive equipment.This was a very unpleasant surprice since this was nowhere indicated on the website of the resort. You would expect for the rate what you pay that this should be present.The diving is great, but it getting crowed on many dive sites. Do not book unlimited diving on Saturday, the staff is off on this day and only house reef diving is possible without dive guide assistance.

Response from PapuaDiving, Manager at Kri Eco Resort
Responded 21 Dec 2019
Dear Hans, first of all we want to thank you again for having stayed with us at Kri Eco resort and also for taking the time to write a review. At Kri Eco resort we offer 3 categories of cottages from which 2 categories have shared bathrooms. The Deluxe cottages each have their own private en-suite bathrooms. Guests choose in which category they want to stay. You are indeed correct regarding the tap & shower water at Kri Eco resort. On the island there is no fresh water source, but on request we still offer fresh water for rinsing specific diving gear and camera equipment. As an eco-resort we proud ourselves of being as much sustainable as we can, meaning we try to use resources the island can offer. At Kri Eco resort we use brackish water for showers, sinks & toilets. That water is filtered and not as salty as seawater. Currently we only have fresh water coming out of the taps & showers at our neighboring resort Sorido Bay. We have a rain water collector system but we still can’t manage to collect enough fresh water to support both resorts. We are working on that but having been here you can imagine the challenge this poses considering our very remote location. Regarding diving on Saturdays, please provide the correct facts when taking the time to write a review. On Saturday during day time our dive guides have a day of rest and are not allowed to SCUBA dive. Guests that want to dive during the day can dive unguided (buddy team mandatory) from the resort main jetty on the housereef. Saturday evening there is again the possibility to do a guided boat night dive. The unlimited diving is a type of package which is based on the entire stay. Guests are free to choose for themselves when to dive and how often. We hope this clarifies a bit more your concerns and we are sure the mantas are missing you around here. All the best, Kri Eco Resort Management and Team.
