Kri Eco Resort

Established in 1994, Kri Eco was the first dive resort to open in Raja Ampat and has been beautifully maintained and renovated to keep to its high standard.

Kri Eco Resort is a simple, informal, but comfortable dive resort set in a pristine natural environment. This is a choice for people who like the back-to-nature experience - peaceful location, natural surroundings and tropical island beauty. It sits on the edge of mountainous Kri Island, and is shaded by palm trees that run along a long fine white sand beach.

The resort is built from natural local materials by local craftsmen and has a low environmental impact. It is designed to naturally blend in with the unspoiled tropical surroundings.

The 13 beautiful guest rooms of a traditional Papuan design, the restaurant and lounge areas are built on stilts over the water to maximise the relaxing sound of the the sea. The rooms are a few steps from natural undisturbed jungle where the song of  beautiful tropical birds can be heard from dawn to dusk. It gives the resort a truly close to nature feel and naturally relaxing feel.

PAPUAN (located along the overwater walkway) and SUPERIOR PAPUAN (located along the beach, perched above the water) cottages are designed with shared ‘mandi’ type bathrooms with western toilet & hot mandis after a night dive (an Indonesian mandi is operated by pouring water over yourself).

DELUXE cottages are with ensuite private bathroom with warm water (western standards), and spacious private sundeck

Waking to the song of tropical birds is a wonderful way to start the day and after a days amazing diving or snorkelling,  the end of the day is illustrated with a spectacular sunset.

For those wishing to relax in solitude the resort is small and spacious enough to enjoy personal space in one of the few remaining places on Earth that is still sparsely populated.

From the rooms, lounges and restaurant many aquatic creatures can be observed without needed to step into the water. The shallow water around the resort is a nursery for many different of species, including Juvenile Blacktip reef sharks which can been seen cruising up and down the waters edge.

The restaurant serves delicious Indonesian inspired food in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. There are many opportunities to meet interesting people and swap stories or aquatic discoveries from the day at the communal style tables.
