Destination of the Month

Indonesia – Raja Ampat – West Papua

Raja Ampat is a world renowned diving hotspot. This ecologically diverse paradise is a hub of life. Raja Ampat’s vegetation covered rock islands sit like emeralds in warm, azure coral filled seas. Whether you’re looking to retreat into simple backpacker lodgings or home stays, or relax in beautiful dive resorts, there are a variety of accommodation options available. Wherever you decide to stay expect a high level of adventure and remoteness, a true escape from the ordinary. 

Biodiversity is mirrored on land and sea. Discover islands full of endemic species of flora and fauna, providing a home to rare orchids, birds of paradise and native marsupials such as tree kangaroos and possums. Beneath the surface you will find 75% of the world’s species of corals! This supports a huge array of marine creatures, and the area has become famous for it’s healthy population of apex predators, such as sharks, whales and dolphins.

Indonesia – Raja Ampat – Papua Explorers Resort

Papua Explorers is an all-inclusive dive resort located on the south coast of Gam Island, surrounded by the most iconic dive sites in Northern Raja Ampat. All resort bungalows, the restaurant and the dive centre/pier with adjacent spa have been constructed the traditional way – over-water with individual walkways on stilts and glorious views sweeping Dampier Strait from Cape Kri to Mansuar Island.

Only 15 wooden bungalows line up along a massive house reef wall with miles of dense rainforest providing the daily soundtrack, complementing the sound of water lapping underneath every structure. The spacious and airy bungalow interiors lead to spectacular decks, each with sun chairs, hammocks and – most importantly- stairs for direct access to the house reef for swimming and snorkelling in medium and high tide.

The PADI 5 Star dive centre operates a fleet of small & medium-sized boats for 10-30 min excursions to all Dampier Strait reefs, extended tours to Batanta, Wayag and Fam Islands as well as the Passage between Gam and Waigeo Island for diving, snorkelling and waterfall hiking. Direct boat transfers between the resort and Sorong airport on Wednesdays and Sundays take 2 hours each way.
Raja Ampat is famous for its exceptional richness of fish life and coral. Due to prevailing currents, the Dampier Strait reefs are best enjoyed by divers with advanced certifications. However, the dive team is very experienced, and with a high ratio of guides to divers, it is also possible to take beginners and open water students to more sheltered coves.

The Papua Explorers Foundation is dedicated to conserving marine life through science, education and awareness. The latest addition to all these projects, excursions and amenities is the liveaboard Coralia, a traditional Phinisi schooner built from scratch and cruising since 2019.

Papua Explorers provides a deluxe dive experience, comfortable yet sustainable amenities in remote, unspoilt nature – romantic and intimate with a fun multi-cultural vibe and a strong connection to their local indigenous community.
