Efenli Arnes Homestay lies south-west of the Gam village of Yenbeser and opposite Pulau Friwen.

Three private bungalows are available. Two are over water, and one is on land.

The bungalows sleep two on a mattress on the floor. An extra mattress can be provided if needed.

Meals are served in a beachside dining room, where drinking water, tea and coffee are provided free of charge for guests.

A western style toilet and dip mandi bathroom are housed in separate rooms in the homestay’s bathroom building.

Efenli Arnes Homestay receives a good phone signal. Data connections are possible. Electricity is available from a generator that runs from sunset until around midnight.

Yenbeser village is a short boat ride away and basic supplies can be purchased there. To avoid contributing to Raja Ampat’s ever growing trash problem, please take all your inorganic trash away with you when you leave.

Very little English is spoken at Efenli Arnes. Bringing a phrasebook or translation app will make things a lot easier if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia.

Bring your own snorkelling gear to enjoy the great snorkelling available from the beach at Efenli Arnes. The sandy shore offers easy access to the water and the house reef is rich with fish. Dolphins are also often seen passing the homestay as they cruise the deeper waters beyond the reef dropoff.

Efenli Arnes Homestay can organise longboat trips to any location you care to visit. Village and island visits, Gam and Kabui Bay explorations and trips to see nearby Bird of Paradise display sites can be arranged.


Diving is available with Efenli Arnes’ neighbour Corepen Homestay. Corepen will pick up divers from Efenli Arnes at no charge. See Corepen’s page for prices.
