Arriving at Raja Ampat Biodiversity is like arriving in paradise, the location is stunning and ever so peaceful. You are at one with nature with just the sound of the insects, birds and the sea lapping the shore, ever so relaxing.
The bungalows are simple yet tastefully appointed and all the meals served were delicious with a different selection of dishes at each meal time.
I stayed 5 nights, diving over 4 days. I was a novice diver upon arrival but I was accompanied by Patricia on most of my dives and I learnt so much from her, she really looked after me and gave me lots of advice and encouragement so that I am now much more confident.
All the dive sites I visited were just out of this world, the first dive I did was at Mioskun and is so memorable to me, it was just teeming with fish and we were lucky enough to see 6 wobbegongs, one of which was actually swimming!
Raja Ampat is a long trek to get to but so worthwhile, Patricia and Rey are lovely, knowledgable, gracious hosts doing a great job in running and growing a fantastic resort. I was sad to leave and only wish I had stayed longer in paradise.
