As the plane descending towards Sorong, the capital of Indonesia’s West Papua, it’s hard to miss the many green, jungle covered islands with own white sandy beaches in the shades of blue, as far as the eyes can see. Among the magical constellation of hundreds of small islands that forms the mini archipelago of Raja Ampat, there lies Piaynemo (Read: Penemu), a 495 hectares majestic island with rich diversity of marine habitat, loads of fishes in more shapes, colors and sizes than anywhere else in the world, wildly diverse diving sites that gives different experiences from pelagic drift dives to magic muck dives, world-class snorkeling spots from soft corals and sea fan dominate to hard corals, shallow reefs drop offs and caves. Almost all species, both seascape and landscape, are endemic which means you can only find them in the island.

Imagine ……

Taking your journey together on a full week expedition to an exotic tropical destination where every day is an adrenaline producing adventure.

Snorkeling and having a party with friends on a completely secluded island and eating freshest BBQ on a completely empty beach.

Kayaking or canoeing alone in a magical surrounding with occasional sighting of endemic epaulette shark (Hemiscyllium sp.), small, slender-bodied bottom-dwellers that uses pectoral fins to “walk”.

Trekking around the island in one day, on foot and by boat, pause to pose for your living room hangings on some spots that are not only featuring regularly in world magazines but also have been enjoying growing popularity as favorites stopover for Asian’s celebrities.

Diving in world class sites that attract marine life like powerful magnets, lovely hard coral gardens and swim-through, colorful coral bommies, overhangs, underwater caverns full of windows to look through and outstanding fish action that vibrates the reef as the current sweeps past.

Watching the sunset at Piaynemo homestay’s picturesque backyard verandah, sunbathing and enjoying some magnificent panorama, capturing the rare photographic moments of a lifetime,sipping your drink while chatting with Pak Eli Dimara, the native Papuan who having used the island as playgrounds during childhood and after returning from a lengthy career abroad, decided to populate the “still empty island” alone, groundbreaking on 14 September 2011, to build the 6-rooms homestay (two with private bathrooms) and decided to make it his last port of call.

Returning home not only with some Papuan’s artefacts, handicrafts and nature-sourced ornaments but also enriched with fresh knowledge of local tribes livelihoods including endemic plants and trees that are key to their survival. How these highly valuable tribal assets are being indigenously manufactured into herbal medicines, converted into traditional housing and furniture materials, reprocessed into clothing apparels and many other uses….

Wisata ke Raja Ampat rasanya belum sempurna bila belum berkunjung ke Piaynemo (S.00034’18.5” – E.130016’11.6”), sebuah pulau kecil nan indah seluas 495 Hektar yang berada dibagian utara dari gugusan kepulauan Raja Ampat. Nyaris sempurna adalah kata yang tepat untuk disandingkan dengan pulau yang dianugerahi sang pencipta dengan beragam pesona, keunikan dan kekhasan tersendiri.

Panorama alam yang ditawarkan Piaynemo begitu surgawi. Sepanjang mata memandang tidak hanya suguhan pulau-pulau mini berbentuk karst landscape yang tersebar diantara pantai berpasir putih bersih dengan diselingi lagoon cantik berlatarkan hutan mangrove akan tetapi hamparan air laut yang tenang dan jernih dengan dihiasi beraneka ragam biota laut dengan berbagai warna dan ukuran dalam jumlah dan spesies yang tak terhingga, menciptakan kombinasi alam yang menawan sekaligus menawarkan surga tersendiri bagi penikmat Island Trekking, snorkeling, kayaking, canoeing serta menyuguhkan dunia fantasi yang menyenangkan dan aman bagi beach lovers. Beberapa trekking spot andalan seperti Telaga Hijau, Telaga Bintang, Puncak Kanaan, Puncak Almindo bisa dikunjungi dalam sehari. Lima lokasi snorkeling bertaraf dunia (Anita, Mellissa Garden, Farm Drops, Doremon, Left Wall) dan dua Diving spot terpilih (Anita Spot dan Mellissa Garden) selalu siap menanti pengunjung. Dunia bawah laut menyajikan menu tersendiri dengan terumbu karang yang kaya warna, goa bawah laut yang berganti warna ketika ditembusi cahaya mentari serta dinding karang yang ikut-ikutan bergetar ketika dilalui kawanan ikan yang sedang berkelana.

Beberapa trip tambahan juga ditawarkan bagi mereka yang ingin menikmati kesendirian penuh disebuah pulau kosong berpasir putih dengan spot snorkeling private yang berjarak tidak jauh dari penginapan maupun trip khusus bagi pengunjung yang sekedar ingin menghabiskan waktu di Pulau Wayag, salah satu ikon wisata Raja Ampat yang telah mendunia maupun di destinasi lain seperti Arborek, Kabuy, Sawinggrai, Kurkapa dan Pasir Timbul.

Berjarak dua jam perjalanan dengan speedboat dari Waisai, Ibukota Kabupaten Raja Ampat atau empat jam dari Sorong, Ibukota Propinsi Papua Barat, Piaynemo merupakan bagian dari Distrik Waigeo Barat Kepulauan – Raja Ampat dan secara historis merupakan wilayah hunian suku Beteuw (Baca : Beteo) yang cukup piawai dalam mengelola hasil hutan untuk keperluan seni (Handicraft, aksesoris dari alam), kesehatan (Obat Herbal dari daun-daunan) maupun arsitektur (Material untuk furniture dan kayu rumah). Terdapat berbagai macam keragaman hayati yang bersifat endemik - hanya bisa ditemukan di Tanah Papua dan menjadi kearifan lokal setempat. Kata Piaynemo sendiri terdiri dari “Piay - memasangkan ke gagang” dan “nemo - mata tombak”. Piaynemo berarti mata tombak yang dipasangkan ke gagang.

Ketika menanamkan tiang pancang pembangunan Piaynemo Homestay pada tanggal 14 September 2011, Pak Ellymelech Dimara, sang pemilik sekaligus pengelola homestay berkapasitas 6 kamar (2 kamar dengan private bathroom) berkeinginan menawarkan sebuah hunian wisata yang mengkombinasikan kearifan suku Beteuw dalam dunia kemaritiman dengan tidak melupakan kaidah arsitektur modern. Hal mana tercermin dari konstruksi kayu yang solid diatas permukaan air dengan eksterior dan beranda yang lebar sehingga tidak hanya memungkinkan ruang yang lega untuk tambahan furniture bagi kenyamanan tamu akan tetapi untuk memudahkan terciptanya sebuah interaksi langsung dengan beragam biota laut yang bersahabat sehingga memungkinkan setiap waktu santai yang dilewati tamu menjadi momen yang begitu berharga dengan kesan yang mendalam. Didukung oleh dua unit speedboat berkapasitas 10 – 12 penumpang maka Piaynemo Homestay siap menjadikan liburan anda bersama teman dan kerabat di Raja Ampat menjadi begitu menyenangkan dengan harga yang terjangkau dan pelayanan yang berkesan.
