We stayed at bungalow #6 with a view on the rice fileds. Very nice, clean, and comfortable place to stay. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant serves tasteful dishes, although it is a bit expensive compared to the village of Moni that is a 10 minutes walk away.

The Kelimutu Eco Lodge is located about 1.5 km away from the village Moni and an hour drive to Mt. Kelimutu. The hotel ground is lush green and lovely. The staff are friendly and helpful. However, the rooms are shabby and require better maintenance and much needed improvements. Our room is very small and there is not enough space to... More

We stayed 3d/2n at the lodge. Everything was perfect. The food is fast, the staff are very helpful and kind, the bungalow is clean and comfortable. The surrounding environment are also amazing: the view of rice fields, the clean river, the singing birds, as well as the cow, and the horse. Our driver (Frenky) and guide (Patrice) are awesome.

First place we looked at and decided to stay. We stayed in the "posh" C11. Food is pretty good and fresh veggies are great! The location is very peaceful despite the bass from what I suppose is from the cars on the road. Quite peculiar. Met interesting folks at dinner time. Stayed two nights but most visa conscious travelers I... More

This safari style accommodation situated a stones throw from the national park boasts comfortable bungalows, excellent hearty meals for mountain climbers and a lovely location in a green and verdant valley. Be aware however as bathrooms are under the night sky it can be a trifle cold for that morning or evening shower even in the summer. Staff are genunine... More

Thank you for your comments. The designer of this lodge is Meryl Wilson, a Kenya girl, which may explain the safari look of the lodge. Thank you for your comments about our staff who are all local people, an important company policy to empower them to conserve this wonderful national park with it's unique crater lakes. More

The Ecolodge has a gorgeous location in the mountains, next to rice fields. It is convenient for a visit to the Kelimutu volcano, especially since you have to get up at ~4am for this visit. Lodges are nice and we had a wonderful 3 course dinner prepared by Rita!

This ecolodge is a good centre to say and from here making tours to the national park and particularly the crater lakes of the Kelimutu volcano.

I had the privilege of staying here a few nights in a recent business trip. This time of year the weather is crisp and cool, and I made good use of the blankets provided. I stayed in the "C" block of rooms overlooking the rice paddies, babbling stream, and Kelimutu in the distance. The room was very comfortable and clean,... More

There is "kelambu" or bed curtain to protect you from mosquito on bed. There is terrace. But I didn't use the bed curtain (cover) when sleeping. And there was no mosquito. The water is small and you need to wait for about 2 mins for the hot water. There is no wifi and tv in the room. The breakfast is... More

Thank you for positive comments re our lodge at Kelimutu. We do not have TV on purpose as most of our guests simply do not want it. We are looking into WiFi but many of our guests love having none simply to have a rest. Thank you for your support More

Pleasant well organised ecolodge convenient for the Kelimutu craters but you need transport as they are 13 km from the main road. Quiet comfortable room. Breakfast choice limited. We did not eat our evening meal in the restaurant. Probably the best choice in Moni to stay.
