IT WAS A PARADISE ON EARTH! One of the high end resorts in Indonesia and gives you the priceless underwater experiences. Although I only spent few days there for the work, it will be the best memories ever. The water cottage was presented perfect, the room, the decorations, and the view when you wake up in the morning, it's very...

The most beautiful place I ever have been! Diving in Misool is just wonderful! Just imagine: Among the animals we saw already 5 meters next to the restaurant in 50 cm shallow water are Blue Ring Octopus, Squids, Baby sharks, Sting Ray, moray, ... The atmosphere is peaceful with all smiling faces. You can just dive and relax since the...

When dreaming of a memorable and unique place to visit for our honeymoon, we had in mind an impossible combination of: easy access to world class diving sites; a remote idyllic island paradise away from everything; separate and very comfortable over water bungalows (where we could be dazzled by the stars when having our nightly showers and overwhelmed by constant...

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...

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...

....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. Without likeminded folks like yourself to come and appreciate the incredible marine biodiversity around Misool Eco Resort, all of our efforts would be useless.
