Fresh fish and vegetarian plates are served frequently. You can obtain wine and beer from our bars.

Diving

Aquatic life doesn’t get more bio-diverse and fertile than in Raja Ampat. Here you may have occasional encounters with dolphins, manta rays, turtles, whales, and countless other fascinating life forms.

Diving and snorkeling in these waters is a mind-blowing experience. Our diving deck has all the amenities to guarantee a hassle-free underwater adventure, regardless if you are a snorkeler or tech diver.
