Misool Eco Resort is located in the remote southern part of Raja Ampat, Indonesia. The small resort is located on the private island, Batbitim. The property is nestled deep in a vast archipelago of uninhabited islands, 240 kilometers from the nearest resort and half a day`s journey from the nearest village.
In 2006, Misool Eco Resort reached an agreement with the local villages and secured the rights to 200 sq km of see surrounding the resort island, Batbitim. Inside this Marine Protected area (MPA), all fishing, cyanide fishing, bombing, shark finning, harvesting of turtle eggs and shellfish are prohibited.
Raja Ampat is home to the world`s richest reefs. Located at the heart of the Coral Triangle, the region sprawls over 180,000 square kilometers and boasts the majority of the world`s reef-building corals. In fact, in an area the size of two football fields, scientists discovered more than six times as many coral species as live in the entire Caribbean Sea.
Raja Ampat has over 700 species of mollusks and 1,200 species of fish. Counted among those is the newly discovered `walking` epaulette shark, commonly seen on night dives on the house reef in front of the resort.
