Picture this: you are lounging in a hammock on your bungalow veranda and enjoying the sunset, as blacktip sharks, bumphead parrotfish, and other tropical fish swim in the crystal clear water beneath you. All you hear is the sound of the tides lapping on the shore and the occasional bird swooping in for his evening meal. This is paradise. Papua Paradise Eco Resort.


Located on the uninhabited island of Birie in Raja Ampat, Papua Paradise Resort features 16 thatched bungalows, all sitting on stilts over a house reef that is so full of marine life you won’t believe it until you see it. You could snorkel here for hours if you wished. Or, you could take a day trip to arguably some of the best diving in the world, including to the infamous Fam Islands, Manta Sandy, the Passage, and the Kri Peninsular. Papua Paradise Divers is also one of the few PADI 5-star dive resorts in Raja Ampat, so you know you will be in good hands.


When not in the water, guests can take advantage of the opportunities to go on unique bird-watching excursions, including trips to see Birds of Paradise (the Wilson is endemic here and on the neighboring island, and nowhere else in the world!), and the Blythes Hornbill, among others. Regardless of what activities you may choose, Papua Paradise Resort is sure to provide you the trip of a lifetime. See our dive photos from the Fam Islands in Raja Ampat.
