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.
