Raja Ampat

The richest reefs on Earth

Just off Western Papua, between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, the emerald green waters of Raja Ampat are scattered with over a thousand jungle-covered islands. The four biggest, Salawati, Batanta, Waigeo and Misool, are known as the Four Kings.

A cacophony of bird calls rises from these jungles. Home to over 800 species of bird, you can find birds of paradise—with their magnificent plumage—great-billed parrots and marbled frogmouths. A morning’s hike to limestone peaks will reveal a paradise for bird enthusiasts and some of the best views of the archipelago.

Raja Ampat is located at the convergence of two great oceans, which has made its coral reefs the richest on Earth. In these shallow waters, our experienced divers can take you to a riot of marine life such as shoals of Maori wrasse and six of the seven species of sea turtles. Here every hue and texture is present amongst kaleidoscopic corals and schools of fluorescent fish.

In a region where accommodation has yet to go beyond the basic, visit this idyllic landscape’s atolls and limestone islets by private yacht for guaranteed elegance.

Our marine biologists, nature guides and submersible pilots can give you access to Raja Ampat’s most exclusive areas. Here you can contribute to vital conservation projects whilst exploring the seven protected marine areas and its inhabitants.
