Jakarta, Indonesia2 contributions
I never thought I would be able to travel to Raja Ampat in my lifetime, but Doberai Private Island and the staff there made it possible. This was by far the best trip of my life. I have lived in Indonesia for a few years and I travel a lot. I have never seen anything more beautiful than Doberai Private Island. The location, staff, diving opportunities, and food were INCREDIBLE. My friends and I stayed in an overwater bungalow. These bungalows are perfect. They are clean and comfortable, but rustic at the same time. I was worried about the quality and quantity of food, but the food is delicious and they feed you SO WELL. My favorite things about Doberai is the diving, kayaking/paddle boarding, and snorkeling. The location is perfect for you to see some of the most beautiful marine life, if you dive or snorkel. The staff on the island are some of the nicest people I have ever met. Overall, if you are planning a trip to Raja Ampat you HAVE to stay here.

It's hard to put into words why Doberai is so amazing. Their motto, "Come as a guest, stay as family, leave as a friend," rings true. I am an expat from the US who has been working in Jakarta for the past eight years. Ever since I got my scuba certification seven years ago, I anticipated the day that I would be able to head to Raja Ampat and explore that incredible corner of creation. A group of friends and I dreamed of this trip for almost two years, and were afraid that it wouldn't happen due to the pandemic. But we made it. And it was the most incredible 10-day trip. The island itself is incredible. The private island is situated in an ideal location, close to some of the best dive sites, but out of the way of all the boat traffic. Villagers from surrounding islands come occasionally to bring fish or interact with the staff, and it's amazing to get to see these bits of local life. The over-water bungalows are top-notch. Clean, recently renovated, nice furnishings, and yet, you still feel connected with nature as the water splashes below the floor's wooden planks and we kept the sliding doors facing the ocean open the entire again (showing how amazingly private it is!). The snorkeling, kayaking, and mangroves make for wonderful exploration around the island. I could write an entire review of the food. But I'll spare you. Know that gluten-free requests were met and blown away. Fresh grilled fish, various curries and soups, fried shrimp, moist chocolate cake, and a daily breakfast spread or pancakes, granola, fresh fruit, and eggs had us looking forward to every meal. Even the meals packed for us when we went diving all day were amazing! The diving in Raja Ampat is amazing. Look at the pictures of the see and the land. It's even more beautiful than that. All the staff on the island is incredible, including the staff that lives there regularly and those that were brought in just for our trip. We were impressed by their hospitality from the moment they met us at the ferry. They took care of us so well and were so much fun to hang out with. The owner, an Indonesian woman, is intentional about partnering with and supporting the local people. It's beautiful to see the care she shows for all those around her. I got to experience the care myself and the staff worked with my friends to plan a beautiful surprise birthday for me while there. I felt so loved by these people that I had only known for eight days. Through our days, we got to know them as friends, and said teary goodbyes as we waved from the boat on our way out. Price-wise, Doberai is mid-range, given the other options around Raja: fancy resorts or little homestays. There are definitely cheeper options for lodging and diving for those on a tight budget, but Doberai is perfect for if you are willing to spend a bit more! To my friends Sandra, Rika, Like, WaWa, Ahmed, Obet, Roni, Zpen, Tari, and the rest, thank you. I plan to return!

  Not so complicated as imagined before, Indonesian local government professionally handles the pandemic in such a way to make the trip simple but safe. We appreciate it a lot as we could enjoy the whole trip to Raja Ampat amid the pandemic.   Thanks also to Doberai resort who arranged the entire transports from Sorong safely. Covid 19 protocol is applied accurately and nicely in this resort.   First time to Raja Ampat, and got the best. This expression fits to describe our vacation despite the pandemic is still going on, and tourism has not been able to get back to normal. Most of the resorts, homestays and LOBs are still closed.   Gust of wind, chirping of birds high above the sky, fish flying in front of our boat, reflection of clouds and threes on the flat surfaced of the sea, and for sure, groups of limestone rocks emerging from the sea, typical Raja Ampat’s view…. amazing. I'll be back! Arie

TRIP DURING PANDEMIC TO RAJA AMPAT   I managed to have a vacation in the middle of the pandemic to Raja Ampat this month. It was awesome. According to local people, I am lucky that I experienced and enjoyed Raja Ampat just like 15 years ago, when it was still so quiet, tranquil, and peaceful.   Yes, the local say that due to the pandemic, they can see the nature is set back to be natural again, or like it cures back just like before tourism industry grew fast. The school of fish can be easily found again, as they are breeding freely and healthy again. Obviously, it is happening to the coral reef as well, as we can see they grow fast with beautiful color.   The last, it was Doberai Private Island again that allows my trip to be memorable and amazing. After several years, Doberai remains friendly, welcoming, and of course beautiful.

Doberai Private Island was a great choice! The resort consists of two parts, Eco Resort (water houses) and Asri Resort (bungalows on land), where we stayed. The location is perfect, you have an impermeable jungle behind you, you have a view of the beach with a pier and a few smaller islands in front of you, in the distance you can see the shores of a large island. The bungalow is about 20 steps from the beautiful beach, and after a few fins in the water you will find yourself in an underwater paradise. The abundance, shapes, colors and overall diversity of corals and rich marine life is breathtaking. This has been confirmed many times during many amazing dives with the local dive center. The guys from the dive center were a great bunch, very helpful, always in a good mood. They knew the sites perfectly and their ability to find even the smallest nudibranch was incredible :) Overall, the stay on the island was carried out in an incredibly relaxed and pleasant atmosphere, which we owe not only to the place itself, but above all to the most helpful, friendly and eternally smiling staff led by Mrs. owner Rika and Sandra with Topias from Finland. These guys took care of us with great care, they were always on hand when we needed to ask, advise, or just talk over coffee. If you forget ibuprofen, Sandra will probably save your life and if you lose your sandals the next day, you probably won't have to go without shoes for the rest of the holiday thanks to Topias :) Thank you!
