Raja Ampat Overwater Bungalows


Discover our Raja Ampat overwater bungalows! They blend traditional Papuan style with the comfort of modern design features. We built them using local, natural materials collected from the surrounding villages. For instance the walls are made from Daun Bobo, roofs are made from Daun Nipa. Floors as well as window and door frames are made from iron wood. These are the typical materials Papuans use for traditional houses.

How it all started

The construction of our in total 15 Papua Explorers overwater bungalows started as a community project. Accordingly we commissioned it directly to different families in our neighbor village. Consequently income was distributed to a wider population in the community. Every department appointed one trade professional as well as two local apprentices from the village. The model worked with a good success rate. So we have many senior workers that have been fishermen before and now have much higher incomes in different sustainable roles and different trades.
