Papua Paradise Resort - Indonesia Dive Resorts - Dive Discovery Indonesia

Papua Paradise Eco-Resort is located in Birie, an exotic island 60 km away from Sorong (West Papua).

Accommodation

The island is divided into two main parts: guest side and service side. On the north-west guest side, with ten bungalows built over the coral reef with natural materials by traditional construction method, Papua Paradise Eco-Resort offers unforgettable diving holidays on the island surrounded by peaceful white sandy beach and stunning coral reefs.

Each spacious 60 m2 bungalow has its own 20 m2 massive terrace, on which our guest could enjoy the slight breeze and the glamorous sunset lying in a hammock, and a 6 m2 indoor bathroom (with eco warm water) providing high standard of comfort. Luckily, we have fresh water on the island that runs in the bathrooms but we provide drinking water for our guests from gallons. Air-conditioning is naturally done by the slight ocean breeze and the sun heats up the water at daytime for a nice hot-water shower after a long diving day.
