Yenros Homestay – Gam Island – Raja Ampat


Superb snorkelling over rich coral gardens at the door, a wide sandy beach at low tide, regular dolphin and turtle sightings and a host of things to do and see.

Yenros Homestay has two single room, private bungalows and a two room bungalow tucked into a cove on a perfect stretch of beach near Yenbeser village on Gam. One of the private bungalows has an enclosed verandah with table and chair. The other private bungalow’s verandah is open and has a wooden recliner for relaxing and taking in the ocean views. Bedrooms have mattresses on the floor with mosquito nets, pillows and bolsters and include power sockets on the wall. Each bedroom also has a small table and towels are supplied.

A beachside dining shelter with a large table and bench seating occupies a shady position in front of the bungalows, but Yenros Homestay owner Melki has plans to build a bigger dining room on the rocky headland beside the homestay. When it’s done, you’ll be able to enjoy panoramic views across to Kri, Friwen and Mansaur and watch fish hunting their breakfast while you enjoy yours. A shady highbacked seat near the current dining shelter provides extra space to relax by the beach.

Yenros’ bathroom and toilet are in two separate, concrete-floored rooms in a thatch hut behind the bungalows and are shared by homestay guests.

Electricity is available from a generator that runs from sunset until around midnight and Yenros receives a reliable strong phone signal.

Melki speaks excellent English and he and his staff live onsite when guests are in residence and Yenbeser village is a ten minute boat ride away if you want to visit or buy basic supplies.
