Doberai Eco Resort in Raja Ampat – Greetings from paradise

After spending one week at Doberai Eco Resort in Raja Ampat, word paradise got a new whole meaning. The idyllic idea of typical paradise wrecked immediately and I found out that to be in a paradise, you really don’t need that much things.
Exotic drinks under palmtrees, five star resorts with fancy swimming pools or candle dinners at the beach are not anymore those things that defines perfect paradise resort for me.
All you need is just a nice bamboo hut, palmtrees, beach and ocean.

When we arrived to small Urai island in Raja Ampat, I had to blink my eyes like hundred times. In front of me I saw a small perfect turqouise bay with seven cute overwater bungalows. Everywhere were just green and blue. It was like a dream coming true.

We spend in Doberai’s paradise one week and it was the best week ever. We were reading in our hammocks, kayaking around island, snorkling with sharks, walking in the jungle and playing card games. We were literally at holiday there and did nothing there.

At Doberai, there is seven overwater bungalows next to each other. In every room, there were shower with half of salty, half of normal water. Also there was own toilets.
Electricity was on only few hours per night so we could charge our batteries etc.

Doberai is all inclusive resort and they had three meals per day for guests. Meals were so good and there was a lot of food served everyday. In the kitchen area, they had water for the guests 24/7 to have. They also sell cola, sprite and bintang if you want to buy.

Every morning we woke up and tried to see small turtle that lives around Urai’s island. Also one of the funniest day activity was to watch small baby shark at kitchen area. Sharks bring their babys there every year to grow.

All I can say about our week that it was truly a magical. Every morning we woke up to a sound of tens of different birds singing in palmtrees, at nights before going to bed, we saw millions lightning bugs on bushes and when you looked to ocean, you saw glowing plancton everywhere. It really made us feel like staying in a true paradise and close to the nature.

– Showers in bamboo bungalows are 50% / 50% salty and fresh water.
– Electricity is available for few hours only at evening time.
– There are kayaks available.
– If possible bring Eco products to island (sun screen etc.)
– There is no toilet paper and as it is paradise island, you can wash yourself with bidee shower. If you bring your own toilet paper, Don’t put it into pipes.
