Raja4Divers dive resort is situated on Pulau Pef which is quite simply one of the most beautiful islands in the Raja Ampat, Indonesia. Dripping in lush virgin tropical jungle, the island is just waiting to be explored: spectacular bays, many smaller islets, blue lagoons, white sand beaches, hidden lakes, ‘mushroom’ outcrops, ancient rock art on karst cliffs, pristine blue-water mangroves, virgin jungle, and incredible variety of exotic birds, monitor lizards and cuscus. The island is surrounded by the world’s richest reefs, many varied habitats and therefore diving is on a myriad of spectacular dive-sites.
Along a beautiful coconut palm fringed beach, Raja4Divers offers authentic Papuan style water bungalows on stilts. Extremely spacious, light and airy. The bungalow measures 128sqm: bedroom 48sqm, deck 24sqm, open air bathroom 44sqm. Each bungalow is equipped with every creature comfort:
The design relies on proven traditional Papuan building methods, and blends with modern ideas in order to maximise airflow and promote well-being, without compromising the natural surroundings.
Each morning is a treat, with the sounds of exotic jungle birds in the forest off the beach and the large deck offers spectacular views particularly at sunset – an inescapable sense of being one with nature.
The open overwater restaurant serves three meals a day. Besides this, snacks, fruit, coffee, tea and drinking water are available the whole day. For breakfast you will find a buffet with fresh bread, corn flakes, pancakes, fruits and more. But if you already like to eat some fried rice in the morning – just order a Nasi Goreng in the kitchen. Also at lunch time there’s a buffet. Typical Indonesian meals are served and there’s always something for everybody’s taste. For dinner the three Indonesian courses, that also might have a western touch, will be served by the staff at the long table.
The Dive Centre is managed by an experienced team who are backed by several qualified local dive guides with sunny personalities. While the Dive Centre is located in the main building at the start of the jetty, the wet / dry storage areas are conveniently located at the pier at the end of the jetty, where dive briefings are held and the dive boats are docked.
Rental gear is available in the Dive Centre as well as a library of marine reference guides. For maximum convenience, divers’ personal diving gear is stored at the end of the jetty for the duration of the trip, and photographers are welcome to use the air conditioned camera room for storage and set-up of their imaging gear.
