We were going to stay for two nights before leaving beautiful Raja Ampat, but we pulled the rip cord after a night here. For a basic room over murky waters on an increasingly dirty beach, Hamueco is so overpriced at 400 thousand rupiah per person per night. Food was not great and portions were limited. This is not a home stay, more like a motel on stilts. The rather basic communal bathrooms were steps aways on the beach. No sink, no soap. There's one hammock for rooms that are built for two people. It feels like the place was built to make easy money, without really much thought into the comfort and enjoyment of the guests.
Can't say I'd recommend it. Sorry.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hamueco received their first guest at December 2012. Build near a local family from Raja Ampat, we offers people experience to interact with local people but also having comfortable room with basic amenities. We're still trying to have it eco friendly environment by limiting electricity (since we are using generator set for electricity) and water use. Our price included with 3 times meal. Our location is 45 minutes from Waisai Raja Ampat. ... more less
