Raja4divers

Raja4Divers in Pulau Pef is a “Mini Raja Ampat” in a nutshell.

Raja4Divers is set along a beautiful coconut palm fringed beach in Pulau Pef with spectacular bays, limestone ‘mushroom’ islands, unexplored caves, hidden lakes, pristine blue water mangroves and most important of all, world class diving and snorkelling. On the house reef and dive sites surrounding the island you will find some of the world’s richest reefs totally covered with colourful fish and critters. An absolute hot spot for underwater imaging enthusiasts as it offers both a wide-angle feast and a macro delight.

The six authentic Papuan style water bungalows on stilts are spacious and equipped with luxurious creature comforts. The bungalow design relies on traditional Papuan building methods and blends with modern ideas in order to maximise airflow and promote well-being without compromising the natural surroundings. The deck with steps into the water offers remarkable views particularly at sunset where you can just relax and unwind.

Gathering around one table you will find all divers during meals sharing their diving adventures in Raja Ampat and places around the world whilst you experience the delicious cuisine fused with local and contemporary flavours and fresh produce.

The team of professional PADI instructors and valuable local knowledge and experienced dive guides will ensure you will have an unforgettable diving experience. The dive centre is equipped with NITROX and offered free of charge to qualified divers which means you can make the most of your extended bottom time whilst enjoying the amazing dive sites. When diving with Raja4Divers you will not pay for fuel surcharges on dive trips and the unlimited diving package offers the freedom to dive as much or as little as you like. Diving is tailored to suit a fair mix of logistics including weather conditions and off course divers’ wishes. Depending on the diving plan, surface intervals are often spent enjoying a picnic on a beautiful beach or exploring mangroves and islands.

When you are not diving or snorkelling, you can enjoy many of the beautiful sights and exciting activities close to nature that Pulau Pef has to offer including kayaking, swimming, sunbathing on a private beach, jungle trails and bird watching or just relax in the hammock or lounge on your private deck enjoying the breeze and the beautiful views.
