This form is for bookings only - you can not use it to check availability. Here is why


Nyanpun Amber Homestay has a fine white sand beach, two private bungalows and the excellent Kri north shore reef at the door.

Both bungalows sit just back from the edge of the beach in the shade of overhanging trees and have enclosed verandahs with good sea views. The bungalow bedrooms sleep two and have a small table and bench seat and the usual homestay bedding of a mattress on the floor with pillows, bolsters, sheets and mosquito net. Power outlets and a room light switch are provided.

Nyanpun Amber Homestay hadn’t yet built a dining room when we visited in June 2016, so meals are currently served at the small table on each bungalow verandah.

Guests share a two room bathroom building. A concrete floored dip mandi bathroom occupies one room and a western style toilet is in the other.

Electricity is supplied by a generator which runs from sunset to midnight and Nyapun Amber receives a decent phone signal that can support a data connection.

Be sure to bring any consumeables you consider essential, as the nearest village (Yenbuba on Mansuar) is about a twenty minute boat ride away and only basic supplies are available there. Be sure too, to take your inorganic trash away with you when you leave. There’s no way to safely dispose of inorganic rubbish on Kri (or anywhere else in Raja Ampat) – waste disposal is a big and as yet unsolved problem in the islands.

Nobody speaks English at Nyanpun Amber Homestay, so bringing a phrasebook will help ease communication if you have no Bahasa Indonesia.

Transport / Getting there

Transport between Waisai and Nyanpun Amber Homestay costs IDR 750,000 each way. Transfers are by speedboat capable of carrying 8 people and the cost is shared by passengers.

Diving and snorkelling.

Diving is easily organised at Nyanpun Amber Homestay in association with the nearby dive centers at Koranu Fyak or Yenkoranu.

There’s excellent snorkelling straight off the beach in front of the homestay and snorkelling and sightseeing trips and transfers to other homestays can be arranged as required. The table below shows a few of the many options available. Prices are in Indonesian Rupiah and  are shared by up to the maximum of 8 passengers that Nyanpun Amber’s speedboat can carry. (On occasions when the speedboat is needed in Waisai a smaller longboat will be used.)

Manta / Arborek 1,000,000
Gam Bay 600,000
Friwen Wall 600,000
Yenbuba jetty 200,000
Pasir Timbul sandbank 150,000
Cape Kri 150,000
Piaynemo day trip 5,000,000
Sauwandarek (Mansuar south coast) 600,000
Transfers to Manyaifun (West Waigeo) 1,700,000


At low tide it’s possible to walk the entire north coast of Kri, cross the sandbanks to Yenbuba at Mansuar and then continue along the north coast of Mansuar to Yenbekwan village. It takes about an hour from Nyanpun Amber to Yenbuba – be sure to time the tide well if you want to return on foot!

On days with an early morning low tide you could cross to Mansuar, continue to Yenbekwan and then cross Mansuar to Sauwandarek on the south coast. There’s good snorkelling all along the north coast of Mansuar and also at Sauwandarek. There’s a lake in the middle of Mansuar on the way to Sauwandarek as well. You’d need to arrange a pickup from Sauwandarek for your return.

There are also shorter jungle trails on Kri that climb to the island’s high point from which fabulous panoramas to the south, west and north can be had.

    I’ve planned to go to Raja Ampat in April 2017. May I ask a question. How about this homestay? Is it clean? And how about food?

    Thank you very much

      I stayed in this home stay four days. Only two rooms, I were the only guest and I had the feeling of Robinson. The homestay has wonderful beach and is next door neighbor of the two diving centers. I felt like I really had my hideaway experience as the same time had my diving need sastified . If you want a bit social, you just walk to neighborhood there are many divers there ( Yenkoranu, you walk a long the beach). If you want to be privacy, just walk back to your Nyapun amber hideaway.

      The standard room is better than Yenkoranu because it has shared western toilet. The electricity on the whole island is powered by diesel generator. Electricity started from 6 pm. It is very costly. So if you sleep at 10 PM. You can tell them to turn off electricity at 11 pm and they will be happy to do so.

      The food is excellent and plenty of fish. The owner is not very good in English but he will understand what you say. He has an nephew next door, who English is better and normally come to say hello in the late afternoon, you can tell him if misunderstanding. You need to send English SMS to book before you come. Or you may ask someone speaking Indonesian Bahamas to him by phone. On the habour of Waisai, you can ask boat man Paul Brother +6282198892428 to take you to Laurent house on Kri Island. Cost is 150k rupiah 1 way.

      There is no wifi in the homestay but the signal is good for telkcomsel Simcard. 100k rupiah for 4GB and you connect with the world.

      I will definitely come back this homestay to enjoy the feeling of being hideaway in a pristine clean white soft sandy beach, and enjoy diving in Raja Ampat.
