Sorido Bay Resort and Kri Eco Resort

Sorido Bay Resort is an upscale resort with a small number of private bungalows, en suite facilities with hot and cold water, air con, internet access, restaurant, and much more. Diving is available 7 days a week at Sorido Bay. The upscale bungalows here are in addition to the standard accommodation at the nearby Kri Eco Resort.

If you want a change of pace from diving, the staff is happy to escort you on land tours to see Wallace’s Red Bird of Paradise on a nearby island, to visit waterfalls, go hiking, or birdwatching.

Kri Eco Resort: Unlike Sorido Bay Resort, this is not a luxury operation, but rustic doesn’t mean uncomfortable. The Eco Resort is clean, well-run, easy going, and incredibly relaxing. Thatched bungalows sit over the water along the pier. The bungalows are basic with bamboo floors, a table and seats. The bed is covered by a mosquito net and each bungalow has 2 windows and a doorway for good cross-breezes and a veranda with bamboo chairs. On the beach, 50′-200’ from the bungalows, are several western toilets with water. Each has its own thatch building and is very private. There are several open-air shower enclosures with big drums of sun-warmed well (brackish) water and dipping ladles, also very private. A separate open-air dining bungalow is at the water’s edge. The family-style meals are generally a nice selection of fish, rice or noodles, vegetables and fresh fruits. Special meals can be arranged too.

Each Eco-bungalow has 2 rooms separated by a thatch wall. Bath towels, pillows and sheets are provided. A generator supplies 24-hour, 220V power for lights and strobe charging. Be sure to bring adaptor plugs (2 round pins) and converters if necessary. If you like to read in the evenings you may want to bring a small booklight to make reading easier. You may want to bring along a boat towel although they will supply one if you ask. Verify in advance that a room fan will be available for you.
