Misool Eco Resort

Dive Indonesia Misool Eco ResortMisool Eco Resort is a luxury dive resort and conservation centre built in splendid isolation about 100km (4-5 hour boat ride) southwest of Sorong on the private island of Batbitim. Surrounded by an archipelago of uninhabited islands, it is difficult to imagine a more remote location.

There are 8 Water Cottages and 2 Deluxe Villas on stilts with over-water verandahs fringing the  stunning North Lagoon as well as 2 larger villas in a more remote settings on the sands of South Beach for a total of 32 guests.

Misool Eco Resort is closed July, August, and September each year for maintenance.

Misool’s house reef is home to large schools of fish, feeding baby sharks and many species of nudibranchs with hunting octopuses, mating mandarin fish and other species as rare as the ‘walkng epaulette shark’ to be observed. Beginning on a gentle slope, these explorations often turn into drift dives when the tide is right, ending in a steep coral wall patrolled by grey reef sharks and other predators. There are 4 boats taking divers in small groups to 60 dives sites within a radius of 1-hour boat rides, and at least 25 of these can be reached in under 20 minutes.

The resort also established a vast marine park with a No Take Zone extended over 1200 sq kms, and every diver plays a vital part in securing its continued existence.

Accommodation, Amenities and Activities

All cottages and villas are air-conditioned
and have handcrafted furniture and fittings, Balinese-style open air bathrooms, fresh hot and cold showers, mini bars and in-room safes. Each building has been constructed from reclaimed tropical hardwoods.

8 Water Cottages stand on stilts with over-water verandas and hammock offering privacy, shade and direct access to the North Lagoon and House Reef. The restaurant and dive centre are just a short walk away.

4 Deluxe Villas offer more spacious and secluded accommodation for couples and small groups:

Villa Tabisasu features 1 ensuite bedroom with large living area in a secluded setting on the eastern edge of North Lagoon - perfect for couples enjoying sunrise views from the outdoor living area.

Villa Utara features 2 ensuite bedrooms, a common living area with a half bath, loft and huge veranda facing the western side of North Lagoon  -  built for families or 2 couples travelling together.

The following 2 villas have been built on secluded South Beach. A scenic but steep path leads to the villas and a water taxi runs twice daily.

Villa Kalanme is a complex of 3 separate ensuite bedroom units with a shared, spacious round-roofed indoor and outdoor living area.

Villa Santai is the newest villa with 2 ensuite bedroom units and palm-fringed terraces on the far end of the beach with stunning ocean views.

They can cater to  vegetarians, vegans and guests with dietary restrictions. Fish is only bought from boats operating outside the no take zone and adhering to sustainable fishing practices (there are no prawns on the menu).

Misool has a spa including massage, aromatherapy and a variety of scrubs and treatments using organic local products.

The Dive Centre has a 50 sqm wet area equipped with a large work station for camera, video, torch and laptop set up. The dry areas are furnished with comfortable sofas, a small library and a screen to share the latest photos. Nitrox is also available.
