Raja Ampat Diva Homestay offers two VIP bungalows in a beachside setting near Yenbeser village.
The bungalows sleep two on raised double beds and have western style toilets and showers in their ensuite bathrooms. Mosquito nets, pillows, bed linen and bath towels are provided.
The tree-shaded bungalows are set a little back from the beach. The covered bungalow verandahs are equipped with a small table and chairs.
Meals are served in a beachside dining room. Free drinking water and tea and coffee making supplies are always available there. The dining room is a great place to relax and take in the ocean view to neighbouring Pulau Friwen.
A decent 4G connection is normally available from the Diva’s dining room, beach and jetty.
Electricity is from Yenbeser village supply, and is available from 6pm to 6am.
Yenbeser village has small shops where basic supplies are available. The village is about a five minute walk away.
A note about rubbish: There’s no effective waste treatment or recycling facilities in Raja Ampat, so leaving inorganic trash like plastics and dead batteries at Diva will only contribute to Raja Ampat’s growing rubbish problem. Please do take all your inorganic trash away with you when you leave.
Only a little English is spoken at Raja Ampat Diva Homestay, so if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia, a translation app or phrasebook will be useful.
Transport / Getting there
One way Waisai transfers cost IDR 600,000. The price is shared by passengers.
The trip is by longboat, with a maximum capacity of four passengers.
Raja Ampat Diva Homestay has a great location on the outskirts of Yenbeser village. The dense jungle behind the homestay is full of bird and animal life. Be sure to bring your snorkelling gear: Great snorkelling is available off Diva’s sandy beach.
Village visits are easily made – it’s only a few minutes walk to Yenbeser, either along the beach or via a path that winds through the village cemetery. There’s good snorkelling from the Yenbeser jetty and the Dore Atri lagoon at the very northern end of the village is very pretty and inhabited by a host of juvenile fish and other creatures fond of seagrass habitats. (You have to follow a path from the back of the village around a headland to reach the eastern half of Yenbeser and Dore Atri.)
A hill in the jungle behind the homestay provides panoramic viewpoint. It takes about 30 minutes to reach the viewpoint. Guided trips are available at a cost of IDR 100,000 per person.
Like all homestays, Raja Ampat Diva can provide boat excursions and snorkelling trips to anywhere you want to go.
