Papua Paradise Eco Resort is Lotus Hotels’ most remote resort, located in the marine paradise of Raja Ampat, West Papua. This property is tailor made for guests to relax into the pristine environment and explore the astonishing variety of corals and marine species, as well as the abundance of natural life on land.
The draw to Papua Paradise is the superb diving in the area. 45% of Raja Ampat’s total area is designated a Marine Protected Area, and within this is also a marine sanctuary for dugongs, manta rays, sharks, and turtles. Add to this the fact that over 75% of the world’s coral species and a record-breaking 1,000 species of tropical fish live here and you will be in diving heaven.
Guests also fall in love with the over-water bungalows where they can sit and listen to the waves lapping gently underneath and watch the vivid sunset in the evening. Watching the reef sharks and other marine species swimming below is an experience that will never be forgotten. The rooms are built with locally-sourced, sustainable materials and are simply but elegantly furnished. After all the surrounding natural life is so grand, there is no need for extravagant interiors.
Papua Paradise also offers the first and only spa in Raja Ampat. Professional spa therapists use traditional Ayurvedic and traditional techniques from India and Southeast Asia to take guests on a journey to improve physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Guests can also take time to unwind at the newly added bar and lounge area where they can have a cold drink and reflect on an amazing day of diving.
