Misool Resort, Raja Ampat

Here’s your chance to explore two startlingly beautiful worlds – beneath and above the surface of the sea – and help preserve both for generations to come.

Beneath the waves you have a world of pristine coral reefs that are home to a complete diversity of multi-coloured, multi-shaped creatures - many of whom are as curious about the strange life-form (you) that has just entered their world, as you are about them! Infact, Neil one of our Asia and diving experts, visited Misool and included it in his blog: The best places to dive in Asia.

Above the waves you have a private resort that nestles deep in an archipelago of uninhabited islands. Put Misool Resort on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Indonesia and you’ll discover it’s so remote that’s it’s not just cast away – it’s flung away! Expect powder-white beaches, individual thatched bungalows built from natural, sustainable materials and conservation initiatives that benefit local people whilst being entirely decoupled from the extraction of marine resources. So this tiny corner of diving heaven will remain perfectly preserved.

  • We have travelled with The Ultimate Travel Company six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. Given our obvious satisfaction with Ultimate, we had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was unfortunately cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble. When travel becomes viable again we would definitely rebook with them.
