Details

Worisun Homestay has three private bungalows and a two-room bungalow on the beach at the western end of Pulau Arborek. Worisun means “sunset” in the Betew language, and the bungalow verandahs provide the perfect vantage point for watching those.

All bedrooms sleep two and has the homestay standard bedding of mattresses on the floor, sheets, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets. The bungalows are accessed from the rear, via a passage that leads to a covered verandah at the front. Both bungalows have excellent ocean and sunset views.

Meals are served in the Worisun Homestay dining room. The table and bench seating there also affords excellent ocean views and the dining room always has free drinking water, tea and coffee making supplies available for guests.

Guests share bathing and toilet facilities at Worisun Homestay. The bathroom building has two separate pebble-floored stalls, each of which have showers and bucket bathing equipment. A single squat toilet is also provided.

Electricity is from village supply and is usually available at all times except from 0700 to about 1000. Telkomsel’s Arborek tower provides a strong 4G signal.

Arborek village is a very short walk away and basic supplies and cold drinks can be found in the village’s small shops.

As everywhere else in Raja Ampat, proper waste disposal and recycling facilities are not available on Arborek, so it’s always best to take any inorganic waste you create away with you when you leave. Inorganic waste left in Raja Ampat will more than likely eventually find it’s way to the sea.

Only a little English is spoken at Worisun Homestay, so if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia, you’ll find bringing a phrasebook useful. (You’ll be able to find an English speaker on Arborek to help if any serious difficulties arise.)

Activities

Pulau Arborek offers a host of attractions. Close proximity to the village provides plenty of opportunity for social interaction and traditional music and dance performances are often presented there.

Diving and snorkelling

Arborek Island has fantastic snorkelling over its fringing coral reef and drop offs. The marine life to be found beneath the village jetty is truly amazing. Be sure to bring your snorkelling gear! Arborek is also the closest jumpoff point for the famous dive and snorkelling sites of Manta Point and Manta Sandy.

Diving is available at all the popular Dampier Strait sites and is organised in conjunction with Arborek Dive Shop.
