Details

Wapen Homestay occupies a sheltered cove near Yenbeser village on Pulau Gam’s eastern shore.

Two private bungalows are available, both of which sit in the shade of beachside trees and have ocean views to Pulau Friwen. Bungalow verandahs have tables and chairs and bedrooms are equipped with mattresses on the floor with sheets, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets.

Meals at Wapen Homestay are served in a beachside dining shelter, where you’ll find drinking water and tea and coffee making supplies freely available.

Guests share a two-room bathroom building which has bucket bathing and a western style toilet.

Electricity is provided by generator and is available from sunset to about midnight, and Wapen Homestay receives a good phone signal that will allow a slow data connection.

Bring any essential supplies with you, as the nearest village of Yenbeser is about a kilometre and a half away by boat. Basic supplies can be purchased in Yenbeser’s several small shops.

Minimal English is spoken at Wapen Homestay, so if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia, bringing a phrasebook will help ease any communication difficulties.

As elsewhere in Raja Ampat, it’s essential to take any inorganic waste you create (especially plastic) away with you when you leave. Leaving things like plastic and dead batteries at homestays will only contribute to the trashing of paradise, as effective waste recycling and disposal is not yet available in Raja Ampat.

Transport / Getting there

Transfers between Wapen Homestay and Waisai are by longboat than can carry up to 4 passengers and cost IDR 500,000 each way (shared by passengers).
