Details

Delvin Homestay is located on the north shore of Kri and offers the following choice of bungalows.

  • 1 over-water private bungalow
  • 2 private bungalows on the beach
  • 3 private bungalows on land
  • 4 VIP bungalows on land

The VIP bungalows have tiled concrete floors, ensuite bathroom and toilets, real double beds with sheets, covers, pillows and mosquito nets, a small wardrobe, a desk and an electric fan. They also feature glazed windows, a solid lockable door and small tiled verandahs with seating. Wooden racks for drying wet towels and clothes are also provided. VIP bungalow ensuite bathrooms have western style toilets, but no showers. The homestay standard bucket bathing or “dip mandi” is provided.

Delvin Homestay also offers five more traditional style private bungalows. Two of those are on the beach, and three are on land. These private bungalows have similar features to the VIP bungalows, including a double bed, power outlets and room light switches, a clothes drying rack etc. A single over-water private bungalow is also available and is similarly furnished as above.

Bathroom facilities for beach bungalow guests are provided in a nearby concrete floored building which houses a western style toilet and dip mandi bathing facilities (a shower is also installed for when the water pump is running).

Meals are served in Delvin’s dining shelter at a large table that has bench style seating. Drinking water, tea and coffee are always available there.

Electricity is supplied by generator at night and the bungalows have power sockets and room light switches.

Delvin Homestay receives a fairly good mobile phone signal which will usually support a data connection.

The nearest village where you can buy basic supplies is Yenbuba on Mansuar. Yenbuba is about a fifteen minute boat ride away and can also be reached on foot via sandbanks exposed at low tide.

Only minimal English is spoken at Delvin, so be sure to bring a phrasebook if you have no Bahasa Indonesia.

Transport / Getting there

Transport from Waisai to Delvin Homestay is by speedboat and costs IDR 600,000 each way for 1 to 5 passengers. If more than 5 passengers the cost is IDR 100,000 per person. The boat can carry up to 10 passengers.

Activities

Delvin Homestay’s location between neighbours Mambetron Homestay and Mambei Homestay means that, like all Kri homestays, Delvin has a great house reef and offers a range of activities. Be sure to bring your own snorkelling gear to make the best of it!

Diving: Diving is available at Delvin Homestay in association with other Kri homestay dive centers.

Long north coast hikes are possible at low tide and there are trails leading to a panoramic lookout on Kri’s heights that provides spectacular views over the neighbouring islands of Ransiwor and Mansuar, south across the Dampier Strait to Batanta and north to Gam and Waigeo.

In addition to long beachwalks on Kri, at low tide it’s possible to cross the sandbanks that join Kri, Ransiwor and Mansuar. The sandbanks are a great attraction in themselves, as they afford the chance to see a host of marine creatures trapped in small pools waiting for the tide’s return. The exposed sand gives access to Ransiwor, the small island between Kri and Mansuar which has excellent snorkelling around its southern shores. Beware of strong currents there though – especially once the tide begins to run.

You can cross to Mansuar to visit Yenbuba and then continue along a well made trail along Mansuar’s north coast all the way to Yenbekwan if you want. Be aware of tide timings though – otherwise you’ll need a boat to get you back to Kri.
