We stayed here after a super-luxury trip further south so we were a bit anxious. But it was pretty good really. Crucially, seriously consider the full board option. We were the only guests on this option and were fed a feast for every meal. It was way better than expected and looked much better than what people were eating off the limited a la carte menu. We felt smug at every meal. The bar service was a little disorganised in that they ran out of beer a couple of times. But it’s a relaxing place so no big deal. Rooms are ok but nothing special. We took our own mosquito net and we were glad we did as the ones supplied were not great. The gardens around the rooms were terrifying at times as cuscus (Small mammals) were in the trees eaten by seeds and dropping huge seed pods from high in the trees. Scary but pretty cool! The house reef was pretty good for snorkelling but we cleared some plastic from the corals. We dived with the dive centre. It had new management who seemed to be getting to grips with making changes. Overall the nearby diving was very good but nowhere near as good as southern Raja Ampat. One dive had 5 boats on it and another wasn’t much quieter. There’s nowhere in walking distance so plan to eat from the restaurant and take sealed plastic containers for any snacks to avoid insects in the room. We didn’t explore inland but it sounds like jungle tours are worth a try there. The sounds from the forest even in the hotel grounds were amazing. Would I go back? To be honest I probably would try elsewhere as I think there were quite a few choices in this price range. However I did have a good time there so I know I’d enjoy it if I did go back.

ah, this hard to summarize. Overall we enjoyed our time here because it was comfortable and the nature was so pretty. I think the biggest issue for us was value for money. pro - - beautiful beach and water - 2 kayaks free to borrow - nice reef - nice porch for meals - quiet - friendly staff - good AC - food tasted fine - ferry pick-up included - helped us get to our next hotel for free (only a couple miles away) - clean con- - our room didn't have a path to it, nor a way to wash feet so the floor was always dirty - extremely expensive food and nowhere else to get any - the jetty was in really bad shape, not a good place to go enjoy the ocean. which is a shame , cuz the ocean is why I was there - we asked the staff for forest/bird tours and they said 'there aren't any' but our next hotel very easily arranged for it - not any place to put things in the room (only one small table) - very limited dive equipment. They kept saying, "because we are so full!" but if you call yourself a dive resort that's not a good excuse in my opinion - manager argued with us over beer costs which were on the final bill but not any of our receipts (if it's not on the receipt, it's the restaurant's fault, not ours (and also we didn't have any beer)) - the ground was just dirt - I understand that it's in a forest ..but it just doesn't look very nice for an expensive hotel, certainly it doesn't make a good first impression upon arrival. In some places there was some old debris. Was the room fine? Yeah. Food tasted good. Beach was beautiful. But everything was so expensive and the product didn't match the cost, in my opinion. FYI, I've lived and traveled Indo for 10 years. So, I know normal prices. While I expected R4 to be expensive but I'd hoped that the cost would be more aligned to what we got. Food especially was insanely expensive. Look, I know it's not in the middle of a city but it's not like were on the edge of the earth or anything. We were very frustrated to arrive on Christmas eve and hear the only available food was a 700.000/person 'gala' meal.

We have been twice in Raja Ampat in 2019, one resort was excellent, the other comparably poor. Waiwo was the poor one. Nicely located on a beach with acceptable accomodation and friendly staff to start with the positives. We did not like the quality and variety of the provided food. The overall rating for this place may be between two and maximum three stars, but the food is worse. The management offered us to switch from full board to order a la carte, which helped a bit. Every day somethig else is off supply, once the spaghetti bolognese come with a ketchup sauce, the other day beef is out or they don' have coke and/ or Coke zero.They have only one fridge to keep the drinks cold. When the resort is full you may get warm beer. The waitress helped us and put the beer into the deep freeze for us. The seafront bungalow for a Supplement of 200 € was actually quite far from the sea and the terrace facing the next bungalow instead of the sea. Inside its been ò spacious however with very basic interior without fridge, room safe etc. The processes in the hotel are typical for a 2 star hotel, people coming without any culinary expecatations or looking for only basic standards may like this place. The diving is good and saved us the holiday. The new owners invested into the improvement o the dive operations, a second compressor is planned for 2020 to offer Nitrox. The boats are locally produced and ok however not the fastest. About rentals we can not comment as we brought our own gear. The dive guides are the highlight at Waiwo, friendly and competent. We dived with James and enjoyed it.

Unexpectedly found a resort with full world class services within Raja Ampat Island, West Papua. Accomodated with one of the best beach-front room, easy check-in, complete dive gears available with certified PADI instructor to help me navigate through underwater world surrounding the islands.

Travelling solo, I spent 6 nights at the Waiwo Dive Resort in February 2020. It is very remote, and takes time to get to and from. that is a good thing. You feel like you've reached the end of the earth and you can leave everything behind. Considering the remoteness of the area, the resort manages amazingly well. I am vegetarian and the food was consistently varied and delicious. The new manager Ron, from Holland, goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and included - even to the extent of ensuring that solo travellers don;t eat alone, but come together as a small group including himself. Then there is the diving... it really is spectacular. We saw (the usual) sharks, turtles, schools of barracuda, octopus etc, but the highlight for me was an encounter with two enormous and elegant manta rays that appeared over the ridge of the reef. The dive equipment is of a high quality, the crew are really helpful and knowledgeable - and I was lucky enough to go out on most of my dives with Sonly, who is not only possibly the best dive guide I have been with but the most entertaining too. His English is great, but he also speaks Japanese, German, Italian and others too besides the local language. On one of the days we went to visit Pianeymo, the little cluster of islands that appear in all the marketing brochures for Raja Ampat. it is about a 2 hour boat ride away, but really well worth it. The water there really is that colour. All in all a really great trip.
