The Raja Ampat Homestay Information Center is located at the Waisai harbour and is open 7 days a week. It’s the place to go for any help you need regarding homestay accommodation.
Information Center staff wear orange PERJAMPAT branded t-shirts shown in the photo gallery above. Information Center staff will help you arrange a booking if you arrive without one. (Ask to see the homestay books to help decide on accommodation.)
The Raja Ampat Homestay Information Center is also the place to go to if you don’t see someone holding a sign with your homestay’s name on it when you get off the ferry.
In January 2018 the Waisai port authority decided to renovate the information center’s original premises.
The temporary location is on the western side of the harbour, at the head of the ramp leading to the floating dock where homestay boats pickup guests. To reach the center’s temporary location, you need to walk around the outside of the construction site fence. The photo gallery above shows where to go.
PLEASE NOTE: For everything to do with homestays, always talk to the Raja Ampat Homestay Information Center staff wearing the orange PERJAMPAT branded shirts, not to the staff at the Entry Permit sales counter on the left. Despite what you may be told, Entry Permit sales counter staff can not help you with homestay arrangements, and (unless you want to) there is never any need to go into Waisai town. See the photos and captions in the photo gallery above for help identifying Raja Ampat Homestay Information Center staff.
The information center is a Raja Ampat Homestay Association initiative that 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 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.
