Southwest of the Gam village of Yenbeser and opposite Pulau Friwen, Efenli Arnes Homestay has one VIP bungalow and two private bungalows in a shady setting beside a fantastic beach.
The bungalows have a large bedroom and verandah, with real beds equipped with sheets, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets. Each bedroom also has a small table or shelf and power outlets and a room light switch are provided.
The shady bungalow verandahs have sea views and are equipped with chairs and table for relaxing. There are also a pair of wooden recliners and a small table and bench seating available in the shade of the beachside trees.
Meals are served in a beachside dining shelter. The dining room also has great beach and ocean views and you’ll always find drinking water, tea and coffee freely available there.
A western style toilet and dip mandi bathroom are housed in separate rooms in the homestay’s bathroom building.
The mobile phone signal at Efenli Arnes Homestay is reasonable, but becomes unreliable in windy conditions. 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 will make things a lot easier if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia.
Transport / Getting there
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 at Efenli Arnes Homestay in conjunction with neighbour Yendebabo Homestay.
