Pay by credit card.
Koranu Fyak Bungalows offers guests the ability to pay by Visa and Mastercard. Credit card payments attract a surcharge to cover bank fees. Note: There’s no guarantee that your particular bank’s credit card will be accepted by the processing bank. The facility is provided by Indonesia’s Mandiri Bank, so if you want to rely on your card for payment it would be wise to check that it will work in a Mandiri ATM before arriving in Sorong. See our Money, Banks and ATMs page for more information about access to cash in the islands.
Please note: Like almost all homestays, Sundays are a day for church and family obligations at Koranu Fyak. All activities requiring use of a boat are not available on Sundays. It’s possible to dive the house reef only on Sundays.
Transport / Getting there
Shaded by pandanus and tropical foliage and having a view across the water toward Gam and Waigeo, Koranu Fyak has a rich house reef and a long beach perfect for sunset walks. The bungalows are central to the marvels of Koh, Mansuar, Gam and Kabui Bay. At low tide, Kri is joined to the islands of Ransiwor and Mansuar and long walks exploring the sandbanks are possible.
Outside guests welcome to dive
Guests who are not staying at Koranu Fyak Bungalows are welcome to join dives. Join for a single dive (as group size permits) by just showing up, or purchase a dive only package to guarantee availablity.
Please note: In October 2019, dive centers at Kri made an agreement that they will not ‘steal’ clients from each other. This means that, if you are a guest of a Kri homestay with an on-site dive center, then you will only be able to dive with that dive center. If you want to be free to try different dive centers on Kri, then do not book Kri accommodation at a homestay with an on-site dive center.
