Dive and Explore Raja Ampat on a Budget!

Why We Love It

Stay with the pioneers of Raja Ampat in a no-frills cabaña on Kri island, a short ride away from Raja Ampat's best dive sites. These Papuan-style water bungalows are built from locally sourced materials. They are also perfectly located to watch stunning sunsets. Support their local initiatives such as Kayak 4 Conservation, and immerse yourself in the local island life!


On site, the RARCC Conservation Center was among the first NGOs in Raja Ampat to protect and preserve the archipelago and combat poverty.

Who Is It For?

For divers who have seen it all, as well as advanced divers who enjoy strong currents. Non-diving partners are also welcome as they can enjoy the spa, snorkeling, bird-watching, excursions on other islands, and guided tours with Kayak 4 Conservation.
