Details

Warahnus Dive Homestay occupies a beautiful cove on Kri’s southern shore. Six VIP beach bungalows are available. All bungalows sleep a maximum of three guests, and all have an ensuite bathroom/toilet with showers.

Each bungalow has a verandah equipped with a small table and chairs and all have fabulous sea views across the Dampier Strait to Batanta.

Bungalow bedrooms have raised beds and power outlets. Electric fans are also provided.

Warahnus Dive Homestay’s dining room is located on the beach too and has the same great views. Large tables and bench seating is provided and free drinking water, tea and coffee are always available there.

Electricity is available from a generator between sunset and about midnight and Warahnus Homestay receives a 4G phone signal which is usually capable of supporting a (slow) internet connection. Free WiFi is provided for guests.

Yenbuba village on Mansuar is a short boat ride away and at low tide can be reached on foot in about 30 minutes. Basic supplies are available in Yenbuba but as with most homestays, it’s best to bring any”must have” snacks or supplies with you. Please be sure to take inorganic rubbish like plastic and dead batteries away with you though. There’s no non-polluting waste disposal available on Kri and you’ll be contributing to the trashing of paradise if you don’t.

English is spoken at Warahnus Dive Homestay.

Please note: In October 2019, dive centers at Kri made an agreement that they will not ‘steal’ clients from each other. This means that, if you are a guest of a Kri homestay with an on-site dive center, then you will only be able to dive with that dive center. If you want to be free to choose who to dive with, then do not book Kri accommodation at a homestay with an on-site dive center.

Snorkelling with Warahnus Dive Homestay

There’s great snorkelling over the Warahnus house reef and the reefs between Kri’s west end and the small Ransiwor Island. Snorkelling tours are also offered. Prices in the table below are per boat trip. The boat can seat a maximum of 8 passengers on all trips except the Wayag one, which has a max of six passengers.

Other activities

Long hikes are available from Warahnus homestay. At low tide you can walk the entire north shore of Kri, or you can cross the sandbanks to neighbouring Ransiwor and Mansuar to visit Yenbuba village.

From Yenbuba a path heads west along the north coast of Mansuar to Yenbekwan village and then crosses the island past a lake to the south coast village of Sauwandarek. There’s excellent snorkelling all along the route. If you’re feeling energetic, you could make a day of it by leaving on a morning with a low tide and organising an afternoon pickup from Sauwandarek.

There are also shorter (and steeper!) local paths that lead through Kri’s jungle to the islands’ heights. Great panoramic views and spectacular sunsets are the norm, but be sure to take a light with you if going to watch the sunset as full dark comes on very quickly. If you want to see Red Birds of Paradise, head over to Sawinggrai on Gam to catch their dawn and dusk displays.
