Kayafyof Homestay is located on Pulau Arborek’s southern shore, near the island’s coral-rich eastern end. A private beach bungalow, seven over-water private bungalows, and two over-water special bungalows are available.

Bungalows have enclosed verandahs with tables, chairs and a hammock. In June 2023, only one bungalow bedroom had a raised bed. All the others have mattresses on the floor.  All bedding includes sheets, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets, and bedrooms are fitted with light switches and power outlets.

The over-water special bungalows are larger, with extensive wood panelling, a large glazed window and secure, padlocked doors. A premium is charged for the over-water special bungalows.

Meals are served in a dining shelter on land. Tea, coffee and drinking water are freely available to guests there. On the beach near the dining shelter are a few wooden recliners for lazing in the sun. (Be careful you don’t get burned though!) A large wooden table and bench seating is also available in the shade of beachside trees.

All guests share Kayafyof’s bathroom building, which provides a western style toilet and bucket bathing in a concrete-floored bathroom building with two separate rooms.

Electricity is from village supply and is usually available at all times except from 0700 to about 1000. Telkomsel’s Arborek tower provides a strong 4G signal.

Supplies (including cold drinks) are available in Arborek village, which is a five minute walk from the peaceful seclusion of the island’s west end. Please do take all your inorganic trash away with you, as there is no safe waste disposal or recycling available in Raja Ampat and disposing of it on the island will only contribute to the trashing of paradise.

Only a little English is spoken at Kyafyof Homestay, so if you don’t have any Bahasa Indonesia, bringing a phrasebook would be a good idea. You’ll always be able to find an English speaker in the village to help out if need be.

Arborek is the perfect location to combine diving, snorkelling and cultural interaction. Being an officially designated “Tourism Village”, cultural performances are often staged at Arborek for visiting guests.


Diving is available at Kyafyof Homestay in association with the nearby Arborek Dive Shop. Arborek Dive Shop also provides a credit card payment facility for Kayafyof. See the Arborek Dive Shop page for more information.

Snorkelling and sightseeing

Kayafyof’s long jetty makes it easy to reach the reef dropoff for snorkelling. There’s excellent snorkelling to be had beneath the nearby Arborek village jetty and over the reefs and sandbanks at the eastern end of the island. The famed Manta snorkelling and dive sites are nearby too. Kyafyof Homestay can organise tours to any of the Dampier Strait attractions you want to visit. A small selection of the possibilities is listed in the table below. Costs are in Indonesian Rupiah and are shared by trip participants.
