I have been travelling with my group all over indonesia. spent a lot of time everywhere. this review is not about the reef. because if you are looking about going on a vacation to Raja Ampat you probably already know how amazing the ocean is in this part of the world. This review gives BIG UPs to the Doberai Eco Resort and CREW!
The staff members were very friendly and pleasant. We enjoyed our time during the day with the dive masters on the boat, and at night over drinks with the admin staff. The staff proved to be very knowledgeable in regards to the ocean, its species, life in Papua, marine life, diving, etc..
No need to mention the diving, and quality of the reefs, and the diversity of marine life (that for granted).
The bungalows are cleaned every day. The food was amazing, with a variety of fish and vegetarian dishes served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The resort offers great views (sunset, sunrise, and views of neighboring islands). No doubt, it is a Recommendable Resort to stay.
