Raja Ampat Travel Reviews

Remote Raja Ampat

Sorido was fantastic. Of course, we are not diving specialists, but it was pretty clear that it was one of the places to go to. Sorido is a great set up, and its sister, Kri, looked good as well although obviously less pampered. So many reefs within 15 minutes boat distance, and even though we did three dives a day there was so much more to do.

Being in such a remote location obviously mandates a good manager set up, and as I mentioned Jim and Julie were very good. Charming, and European attention to detail, and a good foil to the extraordinary, but not "completer finisher", Max Ammer. His story really needs to be made into a film, what with christian values mixed with wild hunts by plane over virgin jungle for WW11 planes, whether Japanese or US! Son Thomas thought he was one of the more charismatic people he had ever met.

James the boat driver was wonderful, and Nathan and the other diver guides were very good at finding all the small stuff - down to pygmy seahorses, and were charming as well.

Stunning Sorido - A great success.

Just a quick update to let you know that you were absolutely right about Sorido. It is just wonderful! The people especially Jimmy and Julia are fabulous and they just couldn't have been kinder and more patient with us. They have both dived with us a lot and taken us to some fantastic dive sites. Max is full of interesting stories.

The place itself is just what I expected. Very similar to Lumba Lumba with really personalised service across the board, fresh local food and friendly meal times. It is very clean and the staff just cannot do enough to help you. Our rooms are lovely, right on the beach and with everything you need. The diving is of course amazing. So full of colour and life that you don't know where to look.

All in all a great success and I would recommend it to any future guests.
