Details

Lukson Homestay occupies a stretch of sandy beach at the eastern end of the popular island of Kri and has four VIP bungalows.

The bungalows have ensuite bathrooms, large living areas and verandahs are situated on the beach. They are equipped with the usual bedding and mosquito nets, and also have hammocks, mirrors, tables and chairs. The ensuite bathrooms have bucket bathing, western style toilets and running water. All bungalows have room light switches and power outlets for charging devices.

Meals at Lukson Homestay are served in a beachside, sand-floored dining shelter. You’ll find the usual large table, bench seating and free drinking water and tea and coffee making supplies there.

Electricity at Lukson Homestay is provided by generator and is available from sunset until around midnight. A reasonably strong phone signal is available, but a data connection was unavailable when we visited in June 2017.

English is spoken at Lukson Homestay.

Safe rubbish disposal is unavailable on any of the Raja Ampat islands, so if you want to avoid contributing to the trashing of paradise, please take all the inorganic waste you create away with you when you leave.

Transport / Getting there

Transfers between Lukson Homestay and Waisai cost IDR 500,000 each way, with the cost shared by boat passengers. The boat used can carry a maximum of 4 people.

Activities

Diving

Diving is available at Lukson Homestay’s Awom Brother Dive Center. Dives cost IDR 800,000 per person per dive (including equipment). Dives can be organised at any of the famous Dampier Strait, Piaynemo and Kabui Bay sites.

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 choose who to dive with, then do not book Kri accommodation at a homestay with an on-site dive center.

Snorkelling

Fabulous free snorkelling (bring your own gear) is available from the beach at Lukson Homestay and snorkelling trips can be organised as desired.

Other

Village visits, trips to Gam or Waigeo to see Birds of Paradise and other sightseeing trips can be arranged on request. Long coastal hikes are also possible at low tide, when you can cross the sandbanks from the western end of Kri to Mansuar. There are also trails to the forested heights of kri for panoramic Dampier Strait views.
