Lukson Homestay occupies a stretch of sandy beach at the eastern end of the popular island of Kri and has three private bungalows.
Three VIP bungalows with ensuite bathrooms, large living areas and verandahs are situated on the beach. The VIP bungalows 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.
Nearby in the shade of beachside trees is Lukson Homestay’s huge VVIP bungalow. The VVIP bungalow has a real mattress and base bed and is also equipped with a lockable wardrobe with mirror, a fan and comfortable cane chairs and table. The large verandah at the front of the VVIP bungalow also has chairs and a table and provides ocean views framed by beachside trees. In addition to the usual generator-supplied electricity and power outlets, the VVIP bungalow also has its own solar power supply with a 500VA inverter and two international power outlets that will supply electricity when the homestay generator isn’t operating. The VVIP bungalow’s spacious ensuite bathroom has running water, bucket bathing and a western style toilet.
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.
