Your accommodation is over the crystal clear water where you watch the black-tipped reef sharks, Moray eels, reef fish, and rays, right under your feet as you sit and have your morning coffee. There are also 2 beautiful house reefs. The other snorkeling and diving in the area is beyond compare to what my husband and I have ever experienced.... More

Getting to this resort from Sorong is also not as onerous as getting to a resort in Misool (the latter apparently being a five hour trip compared... More

The staff were overall very nice and accommodating but the dive master could have been more enthusiastic.
