    Details

    Indos Homestay has two private, over-water bungalows located in the sheltered bay in front of Kapisawar village on Pulau Gam.

    Both bungalows are solidly constructed, with lockable wooden doors and glazed windows.

    The bungalows sleep two people on large raised beds. The bungalows can be booked for 3 guests, but please note that extra bedding is not available. Unless sharing the bed with a child under 12, you will need to bring your own bedding for a third guest. Bedding provided includes pillows, bolsters, sheets and  mosquito nets.

    Both bungalows have light switches and power outlets for charging devices. The rooms are nicely decorated, and fitted with small tables and wall shelving. (See the photos in the gallery above.) is provided. and bedroom light switches and fine ocean views to Arborek and sunset views over western Gam.

    Meals at Indos Homestay are served on the bungalow verandahs. The large, covered verandahs have ocean views to Arborek, Mansuar and Batanta and sunset views over western Gam. The verandahs are equipped with a table and chairs, a recliner and a hammock.

    A two room bathroom building on land houses a dip mandi bathroom and western syle toilet.

    Indos Homestay is connected to Kapisawar village electricity supply. Electricity is usually available from 6pm to 6am.

    A good phone signal that supports a (slow) 4G internet connection is usually available.

    Only a little English is spoken at Indos Homestay. Bringing a translation app or phrasebook will ease communication.

    Kapisawar village lies at the end of Indos Homestay’s boardwalk and basic supplies are available there. It’s best to arrive with any consumeables you regard as essential though, and please take all your inorganic rubbish away with you when you leave. The only waste disposal available on Gam (as in all of Raja Ampat) is incapable of removing plastics from the environment. Please don’t add to the problem.

    Transport / Getting there

    Transport from Waisai to Indos Homestay costs IDR 1,000,000 and is by longboat capable of carrying four passengers. Trip cost is shared by passengers.

    Activities

    Snorkelling and diving

    Diving is available at Indos Homestay in association with Arborek Dive Shop. (Book your diving separately with the dive shop when making your booking at Indos.)

    There’s good snorkelling (bring your own gear) all along the southern coast of Gam and Indos Homestay has a great house reef.

    Snorkelling and sightseeing trips can be arranged as desired and use Indos’ longboat, which can carry up to 4 passengers.

    Village visits, hiking, Bird of Paradise viewing

    Kapisawar is a pretty village with a shady beach and plenty of opportunity for social interaction. The village jetty also provides good snorkelling at high tide, but beware of currents out near the end when the tide is running.

    A shady concrete walking path joins Kapisawar to Sawinggrai village to the east. Sawinggrai also offers social interaction, fabulous jetty snorkelling and occasional cultural performances in the building on the end of the jetty. The path continues to the east, past a number of other homestays to Nudibranch Homestay, where there’s a solid boardwalk that allows you to easily explore the mangrove forest.

    Red Birds of Paradise display at dawn and dusk in the jungle inland from Sawinggrai – just ask if you’d like to organise a guided tour.
