Tera-ailan heritage resort is located on the west side of Saonek island –an old fishing village, just minutes away from the capital of Raja Ampat. It is on a separate island surrounded by pristine water. Since hundreds of years ago, Saonek was chosen as the most important island of Raja Ampat, thanks to its strategic location. Generations of people have lived on this island and the local culture has bloomed here as we can see from the the traces of the ancient culture that formed Raja Ampat. The traces were all over the island such as;

– The First Mosque in Raja Ampat (some people believe that it is the first mosque in Papua)

– The Sacred Tomb

– Under The Sea Cemeteries

– Viewing Tower, where you can see far away to the islands around

– Traditional salted-fish production and other sea-based product

– Ancient wisdom and traditional folklore

And surprisingly, though it has been populated for ages, Saonek is very popular as one of the best night-dive spot in Raja Ampat.
