Firdas Homestay occupies a quiet location on a fine sandy beach in Warahnus Cove on Kri’s south coast.
Five over-water private bungalows are available. All have verandahs with tables, chairs, and great ocean views across the Dampier Strait. The bungalows have raised beds with covers, pillows, bolsters and mosquito net. All bungalows have power outlets and room light switches. Bungalows are set up for 2 people, but extra mattresses can be provided if needed.
Meals are served in an over-water dining room that sits behind bungalows. Free drinking water and tea and coffee making supplies are always available there for guests.
All guests share a 2 roomed, concrete floored bathroom. One room houses a western style toilet, the other provides for bucket bathing. The bathroom is accessed via the single boardwalk that connects the dining room and bungalows to land.
Electricity at Firdas Homestay is available from sunset to around midnight, and the homestay receives a good mobile phone signal with a (slow) 4G data connection available.
Only a little English is spoken at Firdas Homestay, but neighbours can help if required.
Please note that, as everywhere in Raja Ampat, you need to take all your inorganic rubbish away with you when you leave. Such trash left on the island cannot be safely disposed of and will simply add to Raja Ampat’s growing rubbish problem.
Transport / Getting there
Transport between Waisai and Firdas Homestay costs IDR 750,000 each way, shared among passengers. The speedboat used can accommodate up to 9 passengers.
Snorkelling Be sure to bring your snorkelling gear, because Firdas Homestay’s seagrass flats and house reefs are fabulous. A wide range of marine environments can be experienced between Waranus Cove, the nearby western end of Kri, and across to Mansuar’s Yenbuba jetty. Snorkeling trips by longboat can be organised to anywhere you want to go. The table below gives tour prices for some of the most popular sites. Prices are per trip, shared by passengers.
