Accommodation

Beach Tarza-Diving a budget way to travel Raja Ampat

​While our dive center Tarzan-Diving doesn`t offer accommodation, you can stay in one of the surrounded affordable homestays. We fully support local owned homestays. To avoid competition with local families we decided not to dive with guest, who are staying at a locally owned homestay with their own dive center. If you would like to dive with us, please make sure there is no dive center at your homestay.
Just contact Tarzan-Diving, so we can help you to find a lovely affordable homestay, close by. We offer pick-up within 3 km, price: 100.000 IDR per person. If you prefer to stay further out, or in any other homestay than mentioned: please organize the pick-up on your own. Your homestay will help you organizing the transfer.

We directly partner with Tau Yado and Papuani homestays, which are run by siblings Petrus and Nelce Wawiyai and their families. Both homestays are heartwarming places to stay, and are located directly beside Tarzan-Diving, Tau Yado to the left side and Papuani to the right.

Coconut Homestay

Coconut homestay on Gam Island is located right next door to our dive center.

Coconut homestay is as the name suggests, surrounded by coconut trees! Pretty, traditional rooms, hand built in the local style, overlook the sandy, blue lagoon, perfect for snorkeling.

A sandy walkway lined with newly growing coconuts, leads along the back of the homestay. Here you can often spot sea eagles gliding overhead, or black, white (and the even rarer) blue cockatoo, searching for food in the trees.

Double and single beds are available.

A basic shared shower and toilet is situated just behind the rooms in a traditional wooden hut.

The panoramic ocean view here is fantastic, like a picture from a postcard! The perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of diving.
