Lalosi Homestay lies on the southern shore of Pulau Arborek.
Three over water bungalows are available. The bungalows have locking doors, glass windows and raised beds. Sheets, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets are provided.
Bungalow verandahs have panoramic ocean views and are furnished with a table, chairs and a hammock.
The VIP bungalow has an ensuite bathroom. The private bungalow will have one eventually, but for now guests must use a bathroom on land.
Meals are served in Lalosi’s dining room. Drinking water, tea and coffee are always freely available there for guests.
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.
Lalosi Homestay is a two minute walk from Arborek village where basic supplies and cold soft drink can be purchased, but please take any inorganic waste like plastic, dead batteries etc away with you when you leave. There is no safe way of disposing of this kind of trash in Raja Ampat without causing pollution and contributing to the growing rubbish problem in the islands.
Basic English is spoken at Lalosi, so bringing a phrasebook or translation app will help enrich conversation if you don’t have any Bahasa Indonesia.
Transport / Getting there
Lalosi Homestay is situated on the edge of Arborek village, which has a jetty famous for its diving and snorkelling sights. Cultural performances are often staged in the village for guests of visiting liveaboard and cruise boats and local crafts are made for sale there.
Arborek is a pretty village and offers plenty of opportunity for social interaction. Arborek Island is quite small and can easily be fully explored in a couple of hours.
Diving and snorkelling
Diving is available at Lalosi Homestay in conjunction with Arborek Dive Shop. Arborek is the closest you can stay to the famed attractions of Manta Point and Manta Sandy and the island is also handy to Piaynemo and the Pam (Fam) Islands for those wanting to explore further afield.
The beach at Lalosi gives way to weedy shallows and then coral as you move away from the shore. Good snorkelling can be had at the door, but the village jetty is where the real action is.
Snorkelling and sightseeing trips
Lalosi Homestay can provide trips to wherever you want to go, including the remote Wayag and Sayang in northern Raja Ampat.
