Daroyen village are located on two islands. We are on Gam island and in September 2022 we return and resume our operation on Kri island.
Daroyen village on Kri island is situated on less populated area of the island. The closest village Mansuar about five minutes away by boat and can also be reached by 20 minutes on feet during lowest tide. The rainforest of Kri in day time are full of birds singing. The night time is when nocturnal animals such as coconut crabs out scavenging and walking sharks swimming on shore to feed on small crabs. during high tide, baby sharks will swim along the shore to hunt for crabs.
Our Gam island operation is currently closed for major renovation to accommodate guests requests. We will update this page information when our Gam island is ready to open again.
Our Gam island bungalows are surrounded by the blue water mangroves connected to Gam island. This unique location offer solitude from the crowds of mass tourism and because it is at the centre protected area and mangroves, the area offers high concentration of amazing biodiversity from big fish to small invertebrates.
One of the thing that makes Gam location unique is a short walk across the forest up to the hill overlooking the sea is a perfect spot to watch sunrise and sunset. A ten minute walk to the back across jungle, you will be met by mangrove and sandy area. In the low tide, this place is dry. You can walk toward Gam island. During high tide, this place is a haven of various nudibranchs. On the west side is a “Lagoon” well protected from strong current and home of baby sharks.
