Famangkor Homestay has a 4 room bungalow and two single room private bungalows facing a private beach on the southern shore of Friwen Island. Famangkor Homestay’s 4 room bungalow can sleep up to 20 people, as each room has two double mattresses and a single mattress. All mattresses have covers, pillows, and bolsters, but only a single large mosquito net is supplied for each room.
The rooms share a large verandah which has a long table and plastic chairs and overlooks the ocean and the nearby island of Friwenbonda and its imposing Friwen Wall. Power outlets for charging devices are provided on the verandah wall. A small wooden table setting with four stools fashioned from coconut trunks provides an outdoor seating area.
The private bungalows can be set up as twin or double and are also equipped with mattresses on the floor with covers, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets. Both private bungalows have a small verandah at the front with a table and plastic chairs.
Meals are served in a beachside dining shelter where coffee, tea and drinking water are freely available for guests. Power outlets are also available in the dining shelter.
An outhouse building provides a dip mandi bathroom and western style pedestal toilet in separate rooms. These facilities are shared by guests.
Pulau Friwen has decent phone reception and a data connection is usually possible. Famangkor has a generator which operates from sunset to around midnight.
Supplies can be purchased in Friwen village, which is an easy five minute walk away through via a jungle path through sago and coconut groves.
The Mayor family lives in nearby Friwen village and Pak Yopi’s son Martin has basic English. In the event of any problems requiring a translator, an English speaker can usually be found in Friwen to help out.
Transport / Getting there
On the eastern tip of Pulau Friwen, Famangkor Homestay looks across the narrow channel to Friwenbonda and the famed dive site of the Friwen Wall. There’s great coral for snorkeling right at the door and dugongs can sometimes be seen over the house reef at high tide. At high tide, the water is easily entered from Famangkor’s sandy beach.
