Details

Private (VIP) bungalows

Yenkoranu’s private (VIP) bungalows have glazed windows and ensuite private bathrooms with showers and western style pedestal toilets. The private bungalows have free standing double beds with covers, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets and bath towels are supplied.

VIP Type 1 bungalows are more traditionally constructed using timber, and offer a higher level of comfort. VIP Type 2 bungalows offer similar features to Type 1s, but are built out of concrete.

Other

Yenkoranu has a large over-water dining room with tables, chairs and refrigerators for cold drinks. Free drinking water, tea and coffee are always available there for guests.

There’s good phone reception at Yenkoranu, and electricity is provided by a generator which usually runs all night.

The nearest village to Yenkoranu is Pulau Mansuar’s Yenbuba – a ten minute boat ride away – but if you need more than basic supplies you’d be better off organising a ride to Waisai one of of Yenkoranu’s 3 boats.

English is spoken at Yenkoranu.

Insos Raja Ampat Liveaboard dive and snorkelling boat

Yenkoranu Homestay also offers liveaboard accommodation on the Insos Raja Ampat – the first Papuan owned liveaboard boat, and the first to be available in Raja Ampat all year round. See Insos’ website for details.

Pay by credit card!

As of June 2014, Yenkoranu Homestay offers guests the ability to pay by Visa and Mastercard. Credit card payments attract a 3% surcharge to cover bank fees. Note: There’s no guarantee that your particular bank’s credit card will be accepted by the processing bank. The facility is provided by Indonesia’s Mandiri Bank, so if you want to rely on your card for payment it would be wise to check that it will work in a Mandiri ATM before arriving in Sorong. See our Money, Banks and ATMs page for more information about access to cash in the islands.

Transport / Getting there

Waisai transfers by speedboat cost IDR 700,000 each way. The total trip cost is shared among passengers. Transfers are free for guests staying 7 nights or longer.

Yenkoranu also offers Sorong speedboat pickups for transfers direct to the homestay. This service costs IDR 7,000,000 per trip. The cost can be shared among passengers up to the boat capacity of 12 people.

Activities

Located on a white sandy beach on the north shore of Kri Island, Yenkoranu has a great house reef and good snorkeling and diving is available at the door. At low tide you can walk for miles along the beaches of Kri. It’s even possible to walk across the sandbars to Pulau Ransiwor and Yenbuba village on Pulau Mansuar.

Diving and snorkelling trips can be arranged to any destination. Yenkoranu has 15 sets of snorkeling equipment available for rental at IDR 50,000 per day per set. Snorkeling trips to nearby locations such as Pulau Koh can be arranged for as little as IDR 50,000 per person.

Yenkoranu has its own fully equipped diving centre and offers diving at nearby locations like Manta Point, Arborek, Piaynemo (Penemu), Kabui Passage and Pef. Dives prices (including equipment hire) start at IDR 350,000 per person per dive.

Prices in the table below include boat costs for dive sites close to Kri. Dives at more distant sites like Piaynemo and Kabui require payment for boat costs, which are shared among participants.

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 try different dive centers on Kri, then do not book Kri accommodation at a homestay with an on-site dive center.
