Details

Yenbuba Homestay has three private, one room over-water bungalows, two two-room concrete-floored beachside bungalows and western Kri’s wonderful reefs and sandbanks at the door.

All bungalows have verandahs with table and chair settings, hammocks and ocean views. Bungalow bedrooms have double beds equipped with pillows, bolsters, sheets and mosquito nets. The over water private bungalows have glazed windows and solid, lockable doors.

Bathroom facilities are shared by guests. A tiled, three room building contains bucket bathing and a shower in one room, a western style toilet in another and a squat toilet in the third.

Meals are served in a large concrete-floored dining room with views across the strait to Gam and Waigeo. The dining room has two large tables with bench style seating and free tea, coffee and drinking water are always available there for guests. Power outlets are available for charging devices.

Mansuar’s Yenbuba village is a ten minute boat ride away and basic supplies can be purchased there. As for all Raja Ampat homestays, please take any inorganic trash you generate away with you: You’ll be contributing to the rubbishing of Raja Ampat if you don’t.

Activities

Diving and snorkelling

Diving is available at Yenbuba Homestay in conjunction with the other Kri homestays that have dive shops.

Yenbuba has great snorkeling on its house reef beyond the inshore seagrass shallows. You need to bring your own snorkelling gear. At low tide extensive sandbanks join Kri to the nearby islet of Ransiwor and beyond that to Mansuar. The sandbanks are worth exploring to see the myriad of creatures trapped in the tidal pools, but be sure to wear sun protection while doing so!

The sandbanks also provide access to the village of Yenbuba on Mansuar, which has some great snorkelling beneath its jetty and in the channel between Yenbuba and Ransiwor. Be aware of currents if you decide to explore the channel. The sandbanks make it possible to walk to Yenbuba at low tide, but be careful to time your return appropriately or you’ll be in need of a boat to get back.

Hiking

Paths lead to the heights of northern Kri behind the homestay, from where panoramic Dampier Strait views can be had. The jungle you’ll pass through on the way is rich with birdlife and if you’re quiet and observant you may encounter one of  Kri’s resident monitor lizards. Long walks along the north shore of Kri are possible at low tide, and crossing the sandbanks mentioned above will open up the possibility of long treks from Yenbuba to the other villages and sights of Mansuar.

    I just turned up and stayed at Yenbuba a second time. The bungalow is excellent. Rats were not a problem this time.
    Unfortunately, Rose, the very capable manageress, was on holiday. This meant that the quality of service and cooking was much lower than it was last time.
    I recommend that you find out whether Rose will be there before you make a reservation.
    This time only three stars

  1. Petr and Tereza says:

    It’s pity that we can’t rank with 6 stars. Everything was absolutely perfect, pick up from Wasai harbour, accomodation, delicious food, trip etc.
    House reef was full of coloured fishes and also turtles and sharks.
    Next time we have to stay much more longer than 5 nights.
    Thank you Rose and your local staff for everything.

    I had 5 wonderful and unforgettable days in the waterbungalow at Yenbuba homestay. Rose is a brilliant Manager who will try to do the maximum to make you feel home. The food is exceptionally good, the rooms are spacious and the bed very comfortable. Above that everything was very clean and the dining area is a cosy place. The views are breathtaking and the location is extremely peaceful. The excursions and transport to Waisai is well organised. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy a dream holiday without worries. Simply the best place to stay when going to Raja Ampat.

    J’ai passee 5 nuits inoubliables dans le waterbungalow a Yenbuba homestay. Rose est une excellente Manager et fera son maximum pour garantir un séjour impeccable. Les repas sont exceptionellement délicieux, les chambres spacieux et le lit comfortable. Tout est trés propre et le restaurant est un endroit agréable. Les vues sont spectaculaires et le lieu est tres calme. Les excursions ainsi que les transports sont trés bien organisés. C’est le meilleur endroit a Raja Ampat pour se relaxer et de profiter des vacances de rêve sans soucis.

  3. Abbiamo soggiornato al Yenbuba Homestay per 9 notti a febbraio 2017. E’ stata un’esperienza fantastica, Rose è la manager della homestay, ed è una donna meravigliosa. Noi abbiamo soggiornato in un bungalow sull’acqua, sono molto belli, puliti e curati, la passione che ci mette Rose da ottimi risultati, gli ospiti si sentono come a casa. Il cibo è molto buono, curato e ben servito. La posizione è la migliore dell’isola e grazie alla bassa marea si formano lingue di sabbia di incredibile bellezza e si può raggiungere la vicina isola di Mansuar. Per lo snorkeling ci sono diversi ottimi punti, tutti a brevissima distanza. E’ possibile organizzare escursioni tramite Rose, oppure ci si può aggregare con ospiti delle homestay vicine a seconda dell’escursione, del numero di partecipanti e della distanza da raggiungere.
    Ringraziamo di cuore Rose per averci fatto sentire come due membri della famiglia. Consigliamo questa homestay

    We stayed at Yenbuba Homestay for 9 nights in February 2017. It ‘was a fantastic experience, Rose is the manager of the homestay, and is a wonderful woman. We stayed in a water bungalow, are very beautiful, clean and cared for. The passion that puts us Rose by excellent results, the guests feel at home. The food is very good, nice and well served. The location is the best on the island and due to the low tide are formed of sand of incredible beauty and you can reach the nearby island of Mansuar. For snorkeling there are several excellent points, all very close. And ‘possible to organize excursions by Rose, or you can aggregate with guests of the nearby homestay depending on the excursion, the number of participants and distance to reach.
    We thank Rose for making us feel as two family members. We recommend this homestay

    We stayed in one of the 3 waterbungalows in Yenbuba Homestay in January 2017. We planned to stay 4 nights, but ended up staying 9 nights (and had to leave because it was booked by other people). It was our first stay in Raja Ampat and what a wonderful experience! The 3 overwater bungalows are new, clean, good bed with good musquito net, private, airy. To us it seemed that Kri is developing pretty fast, but this western tip of Kri where Yenbuba is located, is still pretty quiet. We really liked the house reef, lots and lots of fish and often we went snorkeling from Yenbuba to Yenkoranu, walking back. Also with low tide walking on the sandbanks in the direction Yenbuba village is nice. We did many boattrips to surrounding places and reefs, nearby and small distances with August, the owner of Yenbuba. He is a very nice man and knows lots about marine life and where to find fish and reefs. Several trips further away we did with Raymond, the owner of Mangkur Kodon, around the corner. All the trips we did with him were fantastic, only a pity that he was not always in the mood to do trips. To share the cost of boats / fuel, we also did trips together with guests from Mangkur Kodon.
    Food in Yenbuba was very ok, though a bit repetative, but everything has to be brought from Wasai and as there is no electricity there is no fridge to keep things cool so choices are limited. As I was eating Veg food, they catered very well with that.
    The heart of Yenbuba is Rose. She is an excellent host, loves the area, knows a lot about Raja Ampat and shares her knowledge with her guests. I think without Rose, Yenbuba would be a different place. Also, she was very fast in replying on my reservation request. Thank you very much Rose, August and all other people of Yenbuba for a wonderful wonderful time!!

    I stayed here in December. Rose is an amazing host. She speaks good English and can help you out with anything. I enjoyed playing darts with her in the evenings, although she is very lucky! There is an amazing area of sand in front of her home stay where you can take a bath in an amazing tropical paradise setting. I also liked seeing the baby sharks swimming by the bungalows and sometimes watching the whales swim just beyond the house reef. Can’t wait to go.back

    The bungalows over the water are very nice- and cost 400 000, a bit more than others. But you sleep in a real bed. Rose is an excellent host and organiser. Playing Uno was fun for me who usually never plays with cards. The evenings were friendly, amusing, and without too much beer. Very enjoyable.Food is good.
    Corals and snorkelling are great.
    The only drawback are the rats in the roofs: they did not come down but you hear them at night. The neighbour’s idea of importing some cats seems a very good solution. But perhaps my dislike of rats is abnormal.

  5. Rose is a wonderful host. She is very attentive to her guests comforts. She was good company for this single traveller – introducing me to friends and took care with my food allergy. The homestay is well kept and very good food. Three nice new bungalows over the water. Very nice beach and the and the sandspit to loll-on at low tide.

    We stayed in 9 homestays and Yenbuba was by far the best of all of them. The bungalow is very well equipped even with a real bed. The location is simply great next to a reef full of corals, turtles and sharks. The manager Rose is very nice and speaks English. We played dards or Uno with her and the rest of guests every night:). The best food that we ate in three weeks all around. Definitely we will come back!

    We stayed 14 days in October 2016 at Yenbuba and loved it. The setting and the new bungalows with sunset view are great.
    The service was good and the cleanliness as well. Especially Rose is taking care a lot for their guests even she organised a nice birthday cake for Verena and we coud join her to Waisai to the festival. The food was good and changing nearly every day.
    The snorkling in front of the homestay is good and arround the corner in the next bay its great. The sandy areas in diretion of Mansuar are like a private pool and its fun to play in the shallow when the drift is strong.
    Diving with the neighbours dive shop is not recomandable as the safty is not good and the equpment is very old.

    • Hi Frank & Verena and thanks for taking the time to write a review.

      In the interests of guest safety, it would be best to name the operator you thought unsafe.

      (Yenbuba has more than one neighbour that offers diving too!)

    We went to Kri after spending some time in Arborek and Mambefor. The owner was quite nice. The food was decent however we had no meat nor fish unlike in other inns. They provided only veggies and eggs so in term of food they were simpler than the others. I wrote some of my experiences in my blog maikamondlicht.blogspot.com. might be useful for those who wants to go.

  8. We stayed in the homestay one week and everything was okay. I think Yenbuba is the best and most beautiful homestay in Kri. The bungalows over the water are amazing, all are new. There is a real bed and a table, the mosquito net is in perfect condition. There is a lock in the door. At night you can stay in the jetty looking at the stars. The food is excellent, almost four or five different dishes. Rose is always looking for everything is fine, see is very nice. The toilet is clean and very nice if you compare with other homestays. Beers are imposible to order…
    I felt a little bit disappointed with the reef just in front of the homestay. Is in very bad condition, and only you can see some corals. I would subtest to the homestay to try to restore the coral reef in front of, I have seen other projects in other islands and in five years you can see new corals growing up.

    • can you elaborate more about your disappointment with the home reef? the latest review by Francisco Furió on 13 dec described a reef with coral turtles and sharks.

    I spent 4 nights at Yenbuba homestay and had most fabulous time. The newly built bungalows are clean and comfortable as per all pictures. Watching the sunset from the hammock was just a bliss. The entire Yenbuba crew was lovely and welcoming. I felt like a part of the community. Food was delicious and plenty with fruit and leftovers available all day. Rose is the most helpful and entertaining manager and she sorted out Piaynemo trip for me. Fantastic snorkelling is available just outside the bungalows. I also took 4 dives with neighbourly shop. Diving with Ray was fantastic and I much recommend going with him as he is really experienced and passionate. I’m grateful I could visit this stunning part of the world and Yenbuba homestay made it really special.

    I hosted in Yenbuba homestay for a week. I had a wonderful experience. The place is perfect for me. I really enjoyed the nature and peace of this place, is even one of my favorites in Indonesia. Rose is the manager and she is really helpeful, Agus is the owner, he dosent speak english but he always is around if we need something. Food is good and the place is clean. I definetly recomend this place to stay in Raja Ampat.

    I stayed also at yenbuba for three nights , to me it felt like I am at home with my family. The food was great and if I needed any extra food rose was there for help.
    Every night we sit all together and have dinner and talk and then come a long night of uno games and fun.
    I already miss staying there.
    And I agree mosquitos are a problem at kri so do be prepared.
    Rose is very welcoming and speak english well and fun to be arround and the best part is you can watch sunset from the room and electricity is good too

    We spent 3 nights at Yenbuba’s newly built over the water bungalows. It’s good quality and clean as you can see from the posts pictures.

    Owner Agus and family was nice and kids were fun to hang out with, games and all.

    Rose is the manager and speak good English so there is no problem communicating what we need. It is a homestay but we felt like a little hotel experience.

    Mosquitos seems to be the main problem in Kri, it’s just everywhere especially during the night, so be prepared.

    Snorkeling is exceptionally good south of Kri, so start from Yenbuba and head south then west, it is possible to snorkel all the way to Yenbuba Village, just be careful of current.

    The home stay from Rose is very Dirty!!!!

    The food is not enough and she not take more on the table!

    She sell the excursion but she not have a boat for excursion! You will stay in a beach for some day with out go in another place! If u re lucky you found a exsternal boat! No diving, but at the phone she say yes on a close bungalow!!!
    NOT TRUE!!!
    The only one execution that she proposes in a Piaynemo! 6.000.000 like a luxury resort but with a 40 engine old boat! One hour distance.
    Toilette is very dirty, no clean!! Bad smell…
    The only think nice is sand bank in the other homestay that you can go direct and that they clean little beach the beach!
    Rose the owener disturb all day with photo for its facebook page but not care the problem!
    Don’t take this guest house

    • I was about to write my review but I felt the need to reply to this.

      Based on the number of good reviews here from other guests and one more from me later, We can safely assume Davide’s experience is a one-off and highly likely to be expectation not met.

      I wondered why Davide did not move to another guest house/resort/homestay since there are really plenty available in Kri within walking distance or short boat ride.

      From what I understood about the homestay here, most boats are just one and mainly family owned and not for guests, so schedule of trips must be planned and subject to availability especially when another boat from other guest house/homestay/dive resort is involved.

      There are plenty of places offering diving in Kri, one next to Yenbuba, one south of Kri(walking distance).

      My personal opinion: it’s just a rant from Davide because his expectation wasn’t met. I am sure Hanging Garden in Bali would serve him just fine if he’s willing to pay for it.

    The homestay is very nice, it has rooms over the water, I think this is one of the best.
    The owners don’t speak English but they are very friendly and helpful.
    If you want to dive, you have to walk a bit to find a dive centre.
    The food was great and tasty, usually they do it spicy.

    I stayed there for a week and it was simply perfect. Angus the owner is one of the best and helpful people on this earth. He doesn’t speak English but google translator helped me. The location is the best of all places I have seen. It is surely the most beautiful corner of raja Ampat to stay. Just wonderful! Bring something for the 2 children ;) they like chocolates and games

    We spent 4 nights at the end of august 2016 at Yenbuba Homestay in one of the 3 recently finished overwater bungalows.

    We had the best time of our lives at Yenbuba! The overwater bungalows are quite spacious with brand new beds, matresses and mosquito nets. Even electrical light and a plug connector are available in the room. Everything is basic but very clean. When sitting in front of the bungalow on the landing stage, you have a wonderful 180° view from east Kri over south Waigeo to east Mansuar/Yenbuba village. The Mansuar sandbank is just 100m walking distance away and you can easily walk to Mansuar during low tide.

    Augustinus and his wife have been very kind and friendly hosts and Mama Sauyai takes care of your stomach 3x times a day (I didn’t belive that when reading all the reviews upfront but it was true – mostly different types of fresh fish, vegetables etc.).

    We will definitely come back Raja Ampat and especially to Yenbuba Homestay again since it has been the highlight of our 6-weeks Indonesia trip!

    I stay here for 3 nights. Good service from everyone in homestay. Food is good in quality and taste, but it will be better if homestay separate food for each group. Sometime each group can not eat food at the same time.

  10. We spent 11 days there, and we thoroughly enjoyed it, Snorkling at the front and the back of the island is great. We liked the clean place with basic facilities, it is nice because it is not as overcrowded as other places on Kri can be and therefore not polluted with smells,
    We slept on new matresses and the three new sea bungalows have been finished now. The food was really good, Everyone was very friendly, attentive and helpful. I`d like to thank them again for everything.

    We spent 9 nights out of our 15 days at Yenbuba homestay.
    Very well located, 5 star snorkeling right in front of the homestay (sharks more than guaranteed every time) , food was excellent and plenty (Mama cooks and takes care of your stomach as I´ve never seen before), bungalows and toilets are basic (as every other in Raja Ampat, other than the 100 dollars night resorts :) ) but very clean.I more than recommend staying with Agus, mama , Naomi and Tomy (adorable kids) , when we go back we will surely stay with them again!

  12. My friend and I had the best time at Yenbuba Homestay!
    Wonderful family with adorable kids. They took good care of us and made delicious food. The room and bathrooms are clean.
    They are also next door from Mangkur Gordon dive shop.
    This home stay is in a good location. When the tide went down, we could walk from Kri Island to Masuar Island to visit Yenbuba Village and go snorkeling.
    We definitely want to go back there.

    Stayed here early January 2016. Absolutely loved it. The family who own Yenbuba, are friendly, kind hearted people who made our stay so good.. we changed plans at the end so we could finish our stay with them. Accomodation was basic as is most on Raja Ampat. Hut consisted of bed (not on floor) and a simple table. Bathroom had a dip mandi & squat both housed separately. Everything was clean and ordered. Food consisted of fish, rice, noodles always with some sides of vegetables and the occasional omelet. As with everything in this place, care was taken & every meal while repetitive was tasty & had flavour. Location was also a 10/10. The sunsets were sublime & the brand new over water huts being built will be a welcome addition. We as a party of 4 loved Yenbuba. We will be back!

  14. I stayed at Enkansinaf Homestay 3 days in August. I really liked that the area is very large and clean. The owner and his family are doing everything possible to make your stay in this place was a joy to you.
    I wish prosperity Yenkansinaf Homestay!
