This was our second visit to this small resort located among numerous, exceptional scuba diving sites. The founder was among the first to discover the now famous, local dive sites, and our very knowledgeable dive guide, Otto, was exceptional. Indeed, we shared the week with a famous underwater photographer, Larry Tackett, whose late wife, Denise, discovered the Hippocampus denise pygmy...

My stay at Sorido Bay was magnificent.

Sorido Bay Resort is on remote Kri Island, a two hour boat ride from Sorong. The facilities are excellent and the staff is very welcoming. The rooms are well appointed with A/C and amenities, and located right next to the water with views to the bay. The WiFi was spotty at times, but the resort is working to improve it....

We spent one week at Sorido and we expected Raja Ampat to be one of the best places for diving in the world, but seeing the amazing reefs with our own eyes was an incredible experience beyond expectations. The location of Sorido is perfect for diving, but it is also a beautiful place to stay with very comfortable rooms, a...

I have been to Raja Ampat on several occasions and the diving is always good. But the place is now discovered and many live-aboards and new resorts have created a crowd on many of the best reefs. This is true around Sorido Bay Resort and we encountered large groups of divers often and then needed to change to an alternate...

With so many dive resorts around the world, its not often that we would go to the same exact spot more than once. But Sorido Bay Resort is one such place.
