Papua Paradise Resort lies along the pristine shoreline of the uninhabited island of Birie, Raja Ampat. The island is teeming with exotic bird life, lush jungle foliage, and a spectacular array of fauna, while the reefs in the surrounding area offer world class diving.
Built in traditional style, Papua Paradise offers an exceptionally high standard of comfort and service.
This ideal retreat away from civilization, echoing with only the sound of the birds and the lapping of the waves under the bungalows, Papua Paradise offers simple yet comfortable accommodation, and a high standard of service.
Dive with manta rays, sharks, and shoals of schooling fish; explore reef slopes with some of the widest diversity of corals in the world, and housing some of the best macro diving of Raja Ampat; and end the day with a perfect ocean sunset view from your private balcony.
Situated in the heart of Raja Ampat, providing all essential standards of service and comfort. Surrounded with pristine reefs and unspoiled flora, the island is a haven for both divers and non-divers.
The 16 waterfront bungalows overlook a long stretch of house reef that offers world class snorkeling, and the jungle paths around the border of the peninsula are surrounded by magnificent untamed wilderness, shrouded with enormous towering trees.
Through this jungle foliage a myriad of tropical birds can often be seen, including Blythes Hornbills, Palm Cockatoo, Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo, Imperial Pied Fruit Pigeon, and a great deal more.
Like the bungalows, the Seaview Restaurant overlooks the pristine house reef, the surface of which is constantly rippling with leaping baitfish and the lithe juvenile reef sharks that live in the bay.
They serve a variety of European and Indonesian Cuisine on an elaborate buffet, and no effort is spared in the kitchens to ensure the highest quality of the food and service to their guests. All locally grown produce available (such as bananas, jackfruit, cassava, water spinach, various other greens and more) is purchased from villages in the surrounding islands; many other vegetables and fruits come from their own vegetable garden, while other items are purchased from the local port of Sorong.
Specialty items like yoghurt, all bread and cakes, as well as pasta and ravioli are all homemade and are served fresh.

The marine life is equally spectacular, and the range of creatures from schooling manta rays, to minute, recently discovered pipefish and seahorse species, is astonishing. Schools of fish in the thousands writhe over coral reef slopes that offer sightings of turtles, eels, cuttlefish and sharks, including the famous wobbygongs; and after diving the various sites in the heart of Raja Ampat, a visitors conclusion is invariable – this truly is a magnificent epicenter of marine biodiversity
Why chose Papua Paradise Resort.
The EcoResort enjoys a geographical position which allows easy access to the resort in any weather conditions. You can count on fantastic dive’s at any time of the year. You can visit the natural habitat of the three endemic bird species in the area.
They have a house reef in the area where you can encounter mandarin fish, manta rays, wobbegongs, bamboo and reef sharks and bump into the occasional dugong. At the island and resort they have access to ample amounts of fresh water, therefore we don’t use water purifying systems which waste energy and can pollute the environment.
During the building of the EcoResort and the day to day running of the place they have established a mutually strong relationship with the local communities. They provided jobs for them by employing local people to build the resort. Moreover they comply with all local rules and regulations such as minimum wage requirements and tailored the working patter to the local life style catering for local holidays and religious days. Finally the resort considered the “fair trade” rules in our dealings with the local communities.
