UPDATE August 2022: The Raja Ampat Homestay Information Center is open again.
The Raja Ampat Homestay Information Center is located at the Waisai harbour and is staffed 7 days a week at ferry arrival times. It’s the place to go for any help you need regarding homestay accommodation.
The Information Center is located on the west side of the harbour, near the floating dock used by homestay boats. At present, Information Center staff are working from the verandah on the right side of the building pictured above. (See the map below.)
When you arrive, look for Information Center staff Wiwin or Yusril. They will be standing by to assist you when your ferry docks. All Information Center staff wear uniforms and ID as pictured in the gallery above.
Students doing tourism work experience sometimes also work at the information center and may approach you to take you to the information center to wait for your pickup to arrive.
The information center is a service provided by the Raja Ampat Homestay Association, and exists to serve the needs of homestay guests. If you are a homestay guest in Raja Ampat and have any kind of issue that you need assistance with, the information center number below is the one to call.
The Homestay Association welcomes feedback about your experience at the center and wants to hear any suggestions you may have. Please leave feedback below or via a private message on our contact page.
PLEASE NOTE: For everything to do with homestays, always talk to the Raja Ampat Homestay Information Center staff. They are the authorised representatives of the Raja Ampat Homestay Association and are the only ones who can help you with homestay arrangements. Note too, that (unless you want to) there is never any need to go into Waisai town to arrange a stay at, or transport to, a homestay. See the photos and captions in the photo gallery above for help identifying Raja Ampat Homestay Information Center staff.
