This form is for bookings only - you can not use it to check availability. Here is why


A simple homestay with a single two room bungalow, Bewas Homestay is on the south shore of Pulau Arborek, looking across the strait to Mansuar and Batanta.

Both rooms have mattresses on raised timber platforms and bedding includes the usual pillows, bolsters, sheets and mosquito net. Each room has a small table and power outlets are provided for charging devices. The bungalow verandah has a wooden table and chairs for relaxing.

Meals are served in a dining shelter next to the bungalow. The dining room has a large table and bench seating, great ocean views and a free supply of tea, coffee and drinking water are always available to guests there.

Bewas Homestay doesn’t have a bathroom building as yet and guests share the nearby facilities at Lalosi Homestay next door.

There was only a weak mobile phone signal at Bewas Homestay when we visited in June 2016, but it was one capable of supporting a data connection and could be improved by walking into the village. Electricity is provided by generator and is available from sunset to about midnight.

Bewas Homestay is in Arborek village where basic supplies and cold drinks are available. Diving can be organised in conjunction with Arborek Dive Shop.

Please do read why you should take all your inorganic trash away with you when you leave.

No English is spoken at Bewas Homestay but you’ll be able to find someone at Lalosi or in the village to help in the event of communication difficulties.
