Make a booking at Orisun Homestay
This form is for bookings only - you can not use it to check availability. Here is why Details
Orisun Homestay has two private bungalows on the beach at the sunset-soaked western end of Pulau Arborek.
Each bungalow sleeps two and has the homestay standard bedding of mattresses on the floor, sheets, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets. The bungalows are accessed from the rear, via a passage that leads to a covered verandah at the front. Both bungalows have excellent ocean and sunset views.
Meals are served in the Orisun Homestay dining room. The table and bench seating there also affords excellent ocean views and the dining room always has free drinking water, tea and coffee making supplies available for guests.
Guests share bathing and toilet facilities at Orisun Homestay. The bathroom building has two separate pebble-floored stalls, each of which supply bucket bathing equipment. A single squat toilet is also provided in one stall.
Electricity is provided by generator between the hours of sunset and about midnight and Orisun Homestay receives a decent mobile phone signal. (Which usually allows a slow data connection.)
Arborek village is a very short walk away and basic supplies and cold drinks can be found in the village’s small shops.
As everywhere else in Raja Ampat, proper waste disposal and recycling facilities are not available on Arborek, so it’s always best to take any inorganic waste you create away with you when you leave. Inorganic waste left in Raja Ampat will more than likely eventually
find it’s way to the sea.
Only a little English is spoken at Orisun Homestay, so if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia, you’ll find bringing a phrasebook useful. (You’ll be able to find an English speaker on Arborek to help if any serious difficulties arise.)
