The Raja Ampat Homestay Information Center is located at the Waisai harbour and is staffed 7 days a week at ferry arrival times.
The information center is a service provided by the Raja Ampat Homestay Association, and which is paid for by bookings made on Stay Raja Ampat. If you are the guest of an Association member homestay, then the information center can provide any help you may need.
The information center is located on the west side of the harbour, near the floating dock used by homestay boats. The building and staff are pictured above, and the map below shows the office location.
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.
If you need assistance at other than ferry arrival times, please call one of the numbers provided below.
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 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: There are many homestays in Raja Ampat that are not Homestay Association members. The information center staff do not have the resources to support guests of these homestays, and in many cases, may not know anything at all homestays that are not Association members. Please also note 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 authorised Raja Ampat Homestay Information Center staff.
