Way Tunu Homestay occupies a secluded azure cove near Selpele in West Waigeo and offers a single room private bungalow and a two room bungalow, both of which are on land, but have fine sea and sunset views.

All rooms have mattresses on the floor with mosquito nets, mattress covers, pillows and bolsters and power outlets. The private bungalow has an enclosed and covered verandah.

Meals at Way Tunu Homestay are served in a sand floored dining shelter equipped with large tables and bench seating. As with all Homestay Association member homestays, free drinking water, tea and coffee are provided there.

Bathroom facilities are provided in two separate buildings. Both are single rooms with tiled floors with squat toilet and dip mandi.

There is a beachside platform and a bench seat for relaxing and taking in the sunset.

Electricity is provided from a generator from sunset to about midnight, but there is no phone signal at Way Tunu.

The village of Selpele is a ten minute boat ride away, but only basic supplies are available there, so you need to bring all essential items and any extra snacks you might want with you. Please be sure to take all the inorganic trash you create home with you, as there is no safe waste disposal on Way Tunu Homestay’s island, or indeed in Raja Ampat in general. See our “Don’t rubbish Raja Ampat” article for more information about the trash problem in Raja Ampat.

No English is spoken at Way Tunu Homestay, so a phrasebook will be useful if you have no Bahasa Indonesia.

Transport / Getting there

Transport from Waisai to Way Tunu costs IDR 4,000,000 each way in a speedboat that can carry up to 14 people. The boat services other West Waigeo homestays too and trip costs are shared among passengers, so with good planning you shouldn’t need to pay the full cost on your own.

The trip takes around two hours and passes through Kabui Bay and Passage and the many small sand islets of the southern part of West Waigeo.

Way Tunu Homestay lies in a coconut grove in a beautiful little bay with great views to the north west. A gently sloping sand beach provides easy entry to the fabulously blue waters of the bay and Way Tunu’s island is densely forested and alive with birdsong, particularly around the lake that lies about a hundred metres into the jungle behind the homestay.

In addition to the short walk to the lake, the adventurous have the option of hiking through the jungle to the heights and other beaches of the island.

Way Tunu is perfect for a quiet getaway, snorkelling and exploring the winding fiordlike passages of the region. Set in the heart of the islands of West Waigeo, Way Tunu Homestay is a good base for exploring the Waigeo villages of Salpele and Saleo, as well as the nearby Kawe Island and Aljui Bay pearl farm.

Snorkelling and sightseeing trips can be arranged on request.
