Part of the Coral Triangle and containing the richest marine biodiversity on earth, Raja Ampat should be on the bucket list of any serious diver. Located at the northwest tip of Bird’s Head Peninsula, Papua Guinea, the Raja Ampat archipelago, or the Four Kings, consists of over 1500 small islands surrounding the main islands of Misool, Salawati, Batanta, and Waigeo. Sorido Bay Resort is situated on Kri Island, and is right in the middle of the best diving on this planet!
Eco-luxury on the island of Kri. Sister to Kri Eco Resort and the place to stay for one of the most highly experienced dive teams in the region.
Sorido Bay Resort is strategically located in one of the most biodiverse marine areas in the world and gives easy access to the beauty of diving Raja Ampat. The resort provides comfortable and well-appointed bungalows situated right on the beach or over the water, and the accommodations blend traditional Papuan design with modern amenities.
The spot offers breathtaking views of crystal-clear waters, lush tropical vegetation, and stunning sunsets. Whether you’re in your bungalow or enjoying a meal at the resort’s restaurant, you’ll be surrounded by awe-inspiring natural beauty.
The resort is a stone’s throw away from Cape Kri, one of the world’s most renowned dive sites. Here, Dr G. Allen famously counted 374 species on a single dive! Not a bad house reef to have on your doorstep.
Nitrox is free of charge for those certified, enabling you to experience some of the richest reefs on the planet for longer. Many of Raja’s most well-known dive sites are within a short boat ride from the Kri Eco Resort jetty, so you won’t be missing out on the manta rays, schools of pelagics and lush soft coral gardens that diving Raja Ampat has to offer.
Up to four guided dives a day are scheduled, and unguided dives on the jetty are possible seven days a week. Dives are available as an unlimited package or as a separate add on.
The resort is a comparatively short 2-hour boat ride from Sorong Harbour, where the resort staff will meet you for your ride out to the dive trip of a lifetime. The scheduled boat transfer is free for those with a stay of seven nights or longer.
Sorido Bay Resort is involved in local conservation initiatives to preserve Raja Ampat’s delicate marine ecosystem. Moreover, staying at the resort will provide you with opportunities to learn about and contribute to these conservation efforts.
Sorido Bay Resort is an inclusive, environmentally conscious dive operation and will cater for those on adapted diets. Let us know what your preferences are, and we will take care of it for you.
