    Ormandira Homestay is a remote hideaway on the narrow strip of land that joins the northern and southern parts of Pulau Piaynemo.

    Four private bungalows sit among the trees between an open ocean beach to the west, and a mangrove-fringed calm lagoon to the east.

    The bungalows sleep two, and bedding for a third guest can be provided if needed. Ormandira Homestay is working toward having raised beds in all bungalows, but in March 2024, bedding in some bungalows were still mattresses on the floor. The usual bedding and mosquito nets are supplied, and all rooms are provided with a small table, electrical outlets, and room light switches.

    All bungalows have covered verandahs equipped with chairs and a small table.

    Meals are served in a dining room that has views to the lagoon and islands to the east.. Free drinking water and tea and coffee making supplies are always available for guests there.

    Guests share a two-roomed bathroom building. A squat toilet ocupies one room, and dip mandi (bucket) bathing is available in the other.

    Only a vanishingly weak 4G signal is received at Ormandira Homestay. Guests should expect to be offline and uncontactable. Electricity is supplied by generator and is available from sunset to around midnight.

    Only a little English is spoken at Ormandira Homestay, so bringing an offline translation app or phrasebook is recommended.

    The nearest village is Saukabu, which is about a ten minute boat ride away. Be sure to stock up with anything you consider essential, because local villages only have basic supplies available.

    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 Waisai and Ormandira Homestay are by longboat which can carry up to 4 people.

    The trip cost is IDR 2,500,000 and is shared by passengers.

    Public Boat to the Fam Islands

    If you have plenty of time, you don’t mind a bit of discomfort, and you want spend as little as possible on transport costs, then there are cargo boats that you can use to get to the Fam Islands. (Obviously, if you are going to arrive on the cargo boat, then you don’t need to request a Waisai pickup when submitting the booking form above.)

    Here’s what you need to know about getting the cargo boat to Fam.


    Diving and snorkelling

    Bring snorkelling gear!

    There are a host of excellent snorkelling sites within a short boat ride of Ormandira Homestay. Fam Wall, Batu Rufas, and the Andau Mantas are just a few of the many popular options.

    Diving can be arranged with nearby Lagoon Homestay. (If you want to dive every day, then it would be best to stay at a place with an on-site dive center.)


    Village visits can be easily arranged, and the much-photographed Piaynemo and Star Lagoon viewpoints are nearby.
