The water cottages at Kri Eco Resort, Raja Ampat, West Papua, Indonesia

There are 14 Standard Water Cottages built out over the shallows and 1 Deluxe Cottage which extends over the shallows and land. You can watch baby blacktip reef sharks patrol the shallows from your balcony. The simple dining area and lounge are also built out over the water so your thoughts are never far from the sea. There is a free laundry service and free WiFi in the lounge and in the cottages if you need to stay in touch with the 'real world'. There is also a computer for you to check your latest images of this underwater haven.

Kri Eco Resort is not an experience in pampered luxury but experiences such as being awoken by native Papuan bird song, admiring the tree kangaroos, or relaxing on the sun deck in the middle of this natural paradise are priceless. Knowing that the local staff consist of former shark-finning fisherman, turned guardians of the local marine environment, is another valuable thought. To get close to nature and dive one of the world's finest regions without hurting your pocket, Kri Eco Resort is a great choice.
