This is one of those moments when I'm torn: I often use TripAdvisor when I'm considering a destination so I want to return the favor to those who have written useful reviews...but I'm tempted to keep this little slice of paradise a secret since it is such a unique and special place. Decisions, decisions. OK, here we go: My wife...

Dear Dave M, great to hear you will be back! Andrew and I look forward to seeing you both here again, and we'll have lots more great improvements to show you. And I'm pleased you enjoyed our 'in the trenches' presentation about how we built the resort. We are always happy to share our story, with the hopes that it...

From the time you step off the plane and are greeted by a misool dive guide, you are immediately welcomed in to the ' misool family'. The diving was out of this world, the dive guides really found some amazing critters, and catered to all your diving needs. The hotel is beautiful, and well maintained. Awesome holiday. Will definitely return...

Couple one of the top diving spots in the world with a beautiful resort carefully placed into the natural beauty of Misool Island then pour in gracious and professional staff, great food and great camaraderie, shake and pour over ice.....it doesn't get much better than this! Actually, we didn't do much drinking because we made 17 dives in one week...

....and you will have no regrets! The experience was exactly as advertised on their webpage and as reviewed here and other places. The diving in the "no take" zone was spectacular.....I'd describe it as a museum as to how things were before we(humans) mucked it all up. Sharks were common, soft corals amazing, sea fans enormous, and the Mantas huge!...

Not sure what more can be added after all of the glowing reviews below. Misool is truly a special place. I'd been dreaming of traveling there after reading the NYT article a while back, the only thing causing me pause was that my wife and I weren't divers. Avid snorkelers, yes, and absoloute lovers of the ocean, but for medical...

Dear andyprchrd, you are absolutely right - you *have* contributed to something very valuable to the conservation of the world's richest reefs.

We live on our sailboat and traveled through Raja Ampat for about a month.

Never have I travelled so far and for so long and yet been completely delighted with the destination.
