    Warahnus Homestay occupies a beautiful cove on Kri’s southern shore and has four private bungalows on the beach.

    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 room light switches and power outlets and sleep two. Bedding is the homestay standard of mattresses on the floor with pillows, bolsters, sheets and a mosquito net.

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

    All guests share a single, two roomed, pebble-floored bathroom building. The building has plumbing, and the dip mandi bathroom also has a shower-like water spout if you find ladling water over yourself inconvenient. A western style toilet occupies the second room.

    Electricity is available from a generator between sunset and about midnight and Warahnus Homestay receives a reasonable phone signal which is usually capable of supporting a (slow) internet connection.

    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 Homestay.

    Transport / Getting there

    Transfers between Warahnus Homestay and Waisai are by speedboat capable of carrying up to six passengers. The cost is IDR 750,000 each way and is shared by boat passengers.

    Warahnus Homestay diving and snorkelling

    Diving is available at Warahnus Homestay in conjunction with neighbouring homestays Lumba Lumba or Mangkur Kodon.

    Warahnus has an excellent house reef for snorkelling (bring your own equipment) and snorkelling/sightseeing trips can be arranged as required to any site you want to visit. The trips use Warahnus’ speedboat which can carry up to six passengers. The table below provides prices (shared by passengers) in Indonesian Rupiah for just some of the many options.

    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 (but 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.
