Make a booking at Boryomggung Homestay
This form is for bookings only - you can not use it to check availability. Here is why Details
Boryomggung Homestay lies on the north shore of Birie Island and has one three room bungalow with a nicely furnished common area.
Bedrooms: Mattresses on the floor have pillows, bolsters, sheets and mosquito nets and each room also has a table, power outlets and room light switch.
The bungalow common area has beach and sea views and is a great place to relax. There are chairs, bench seating, some nice glass topped tables displaying shell collections and power outlets for your devices.
A two room bathroom building is shared by all guests. A pebble-floor dip mandi bathroom is in one and the other has a western style toilet and concrete floor.
Meals are taken in a dining shelter which lies next to the beach behind a screen of young mangroves. The dining room is cool and shady, with bench seats and a table and tea, coffee and drinking water are freely available there.
Electricity is supplied by generator and is available from sunset to about midnight.
Only a weak and variable phone signal was available at Boryomggung Homestay when we visited in June 2016. You won’t be able to get a data connection.
If you need supplies, Arefi Village is a short boat ride away. Only the basics are available there though, so be sure to buy in advance any items or snacks you regard as essential. Please also take away any inorganic rubbish you create. Especially dead batteries and plastics. As in the rest of Raja Ampat there is no non-polluting method of waste disposal available on Birie. Please:
don’t rubbish Raja Ampat!
Only a little English is spoken at Boryomggung Homestay, so if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia a phrasebook will prove useful.
Transport / Getting there
Boryomggung Homestay is nature at it’s best. A great house reef with dugongs, sharks and mantas all being regular visitors. Pulau Birie’s jungles are host to scores of bird species including parrots and cockatoos. Jungle hikes are possible and there are local fruit bat colonies that can be visited.
The nearby village of Arefi is very pretty and worth a visit. It’s a 15 minute boat ride from Boryomggung.
Boryomggung Homestay offers dives guided by a qualified Rescue Diver, but only has the following equipment available – it’s probably best to bring everything except tanks to be sure of having all you need. Please also read our
Raja Ampat diving safety page.
4 regulators, wetsuits and fins.
3 masks and pairs of boots
2 dive computers
