Papua Diving Resorts – Raja Ampat – Indonesia

From the Blog

Important COVID-19 note

To all of our loyal guests,

Due to the coronavirus, since last week, all foreigners who wish to visit Indonesia must obtain a visa from Indonesia missions abroad and provide a health certificate, and no visa on arrival will be issued for at least one month. The local government have also stopped all resort activities until further notice. Indonesians and residents in many areas are advised to stay at home as well so as to enforce the need for Social Distancing.

Therefore, it is with great sadness that we are having to close both Sorido Bay Resort and Kri Eco Resort on 29 March 2020.


Our booking team is working day and night to respond to all your questions, but please be patient if you have yet to receive a reply.
For now, we will take this opportunity to make renovations and improvements which were originally planned for the low season and we can`t wait to show them to you once we can open again!


We are also trying our best to find solutions to keep supporting our team and their families, as well as the many communities we have been assisting with your kind help. In the meantime, please keep following us on social media and on our website to stay up to date on all the happenings with the resort and Raja Ampat..
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families during these strange & difficult times and we look forward to seeing you all again once this is all over and our daily lives can go back to normal.

Warmest regards & stay healthy,

The Papua Diving Team

Sustainable tourism is an industry committed to making a low impact on the environment and local culture, while helping to generate future employment for local people. The positive of sustainable tourism is to ensure that development is a positive experience for local people; tourism companies; and tourists themselves.

The main three responsibilities of sustainable tourism are: benefits the environment, help local communities and provides a region (often underdeveloped and poor) with an economic advantage. If people do not travel, there is no tourism. So, sustainable tourism is also linked to a concept of sustainable mobility.
