Raja Ampat Sunrise Homestay has one bungalow with an ensuite bathroom (VIP bungalow) plus eight private bungalows set just back from the beautiful beaches of Pulau Pam’s northern shore. Each bungalow sleeps two and is equipped with a raised bed that has sheets, pillows and a mosquito net.
The bungalows each have covered verandahs with ocean views and private bungalow guests share a four-room bathroom. Two rooms have western style toilets and two provide bucket bathing.
Meals are served in a beachside dining room where drinking water, tea and coffee are always freely available to guests.
Electricity is provided by generator and is available from sunset until around midnight. A decent phone signal is available, but the last time we visited Pam it wouldn’t support a data connection.
Raja Ampat Sunrise Homestay lies next to Sau Kabu village where basic supplies can be purchased in small local shops. Sau Kabu (like everywhere else in Raja Ampat) has no secure way of disposing of inorganic waste, so it’s best to take any you create away with you to eliminate the chance of it eventually winding up in the ocean.
English is spoken at Raja Ampat Sunrise Homestay.
Please note: Coconut crabs are a protected species. Please don’t buy them. Raja Ampat Sunrise Homestay will refuse to cook any you might bring and will instead ask that you release them.
