    Details

    Erens Guest House is located just east of the Sauwandarek village jetty, on the south coast of Pulau Mansuar.

    Four VIP bungalows (private bungalows with ensuite bathrooms) are available. The bungalows are on the beach and have unobstructed panoramic ocean views. All have glazed windows and doors.

    All bungalow bedrooms have real beds, and extra mattresses can be provided if needed. Bedding includes sheets, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets. The bungalow bedrooms have light switches, and power outlets are provided. All bungalows have covered verandahs with a table and chairs and excellent ocean views.

    All bungalows have ensuite bathrooms with western style toilets and bucket bathing.

    Meals are served in Erens’ dining room, and drinking water, and tea and coffee making supplies are provided free of charge there.

    Electricity is supplied by generator, and is available from sunset to around midnight. There is no phone signal available at Sauwandarek.

    Only a little English is spoken at Erens Guest House, so a phrasebook or a translation app will prove handy if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia.

    As everywhere in Raja Ampat, only very basic supplies are available in village shops, and there is no way to properly dispose of inorganic waste at Sauwandarek.

    To avoid contributing to the trashing of paradise, all homestays ask that you take all your inorganic trash away with you when you leave.

    Transport / Getting there

    One way transfers between Waisai and Erens Guest House cost IDR 1,000,000 Transfers are by longboat which can carry up to 4 passengers, and the total cost is shared by passengers.

    Activities

    Erens Guest House has excellent snorkelling at the door. Easy access to the water is provided by the nearby village jetty, which also shelters large schools of fish and many colourful soft corals. Healthy coral reef stretches right along Mansuar’s southern shore, where rich upwellings attract plenty of marine life.

    When you need a break from the water and sun, Sauwandarek’s wide sandy beaches and beachside trees provide plenty of shady places to relax with a good book.

    Long hikes are available on Mansuar. Follow the path leads north from Sauwandarek, and you will pass by a lake in the center of the island, before coming to the north shore village of Yenbekwan, where more great snorkelling is available. From Yenbekwan, it’s possible to follow a jungle path eastward, all the way to Yenbuba village on Mansuar’s eastern tip. If you’re really keen (and the tide is low), from Yenbuba you can cross the sandbanks to Kri. Erens Guest House can also provide snorkelling and sightseeing trips to anywhere you might like to go.

    Do be aware that Sauwandarek village is of the Seventh Day Adventist faith, and that the day of rest there is Saturday. Apart from providing transport to Waisai if needed, your hosts will not be available for boat trips or other guided activities on Saturdays.
