Starting in 1996, pre-internet, Steve, the owner, arrived in Asu Island based on stories and rumors. After staying rough built our first wooden bungalows. In 2008 he partnered up with Paris Chong from CA and Marcelo Noto from Brazil and, with the support of the island population of 40 people, started to build a higher level of accommodation and marine navigation.

All operational products and supplies are sourced from the region and surrounding islands. Puri Asu Resort does everything possible to maintain the cleanliness and natural environment, especially by teaching the local community about sustainable practices. Puri Asu Resort also provides first aid assistance to the local community as there is no other facilities on the island.

Overall our guiding philosophy is to try and give our guests the experience they are looking for and do so in comfort and safety.
