    Details

    Feey Yef Homestay occupies a tiny bay on a karst island near the village of Wawiyai in northern Kabui Bay.

    The accommodation is very basic, but makes a great base from which to explore northern Kabui Bay.

    A single over-water bungalow has views across the bay to the jungled islets that crowd the northern part of the Kabui seascape.

    The bungalow sleeps two on a mattress on the floor. Sheets, pillows, bolsters and mosquito net are provided. Bedding for an extra two people can be provided if needed.

    The bungalow doesn’t have a verandah, but the adjacent over-water dining shelter is equipped with a hammock and recliner for relaxation.

    Free drinking water, and tea and coffee making supplies are always available in the dining shelter.

    A private over-water bathroom houses a western style toilet and bucket bathing. (Be sure to bring a light source for negotiating the boardwalks at night!)

    Electricity is provided by generator and is available from sunset to around midnight. If needed, the generator can be started on request. There may be an extra charge for fuel if needed for long periods outside normal hours.

    Feey Yef usually receives around half bars of a 4G phone signal. Data connections are possible, but not stable.

    Wawiyai village is a 2km boat ride away if you need emergency supplies, but you should definitely bring anything you consider essential with you.

    You’ll also need to take any inorganic waste away with you when you leave.

    Only a little English is spoken at Feey Yef Homestay, so bring a phrasebook or translation app if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia.

    Transport / Getting there

    Transfers between Waisai and Feey Yef Homestay cost IDR 1,250,000 each way. The trip cost is shared by boat passengers (max 2).

    Activities

    The village of Wawiyai looms large in local lore, as it is here that the events related in Raja Ampat’s founding myth took place.

    The dragon’s eggs from which hatched the original kings of Raja Ampat were found here. One which didn’t hatch is still venerated, and is housed in a hut on the banks of the Waikeo River near Wawiyai. Once a year (and the only time that outsiders may get a glimpse of it), it is removed from its cloth wrapping and ceremonially washed.

    There are a number of other ancient cultural sites than can be visited on boat trips from Feey Yef, including funerary caves and ancient rock art galleries. (See the photo gallery above.)

    The famed snorkeling and dive site of Kabui Passage is nearby, as is the Marindal panoramic lookout point.

    Birdwatching and jungle treks along a section of the newly built dirt road out of Wawiyai can also be arranged, as can snorkelling trips.
