Over the years I have visited Moni on a few occasions, and this is by far the best place I have stayed while there. The hotel us clean, the rooms spacious, the beds of good quality. While the hotel is a little outside the village proper, it us close enough to access the bars there should you wish. We booked... More

This is a great place to base yourself to visit the area. The staff are excellent, Great food indeed, especially those local food. The cook is an excellent cook. I'll stay there any time. Actually all EcoLodges I stayed are great. I've stayed in Kelimutu Crater EcoLodge, Komodo EcoLodge, Udayana EcoLodge and also the one in Lampung.

We spent a night in this lodge and the place exceeded our expectation. You feel in the middle of no where when you get to Moni,and Kelimutu Lodge makes you feel at home.

We only stayed one night here and, as we arrived after dark and got up at 4am to go to the crater lakes, we didn't spend as much time her as we might have done. This was a shame as the Eco Lodge was probably the best place we stayed in when we were on our Flores road trip. Hot... More

Thank you for your report on our Kelimutu Crater Lakes Eco Lodge. It certainly is a pity that you could not have stayed longer. We believe this lodge is a special place and merits 2 - 3 days to see this unique area of lakes ,weaving villages, good birding and hiking. More

My husband and I liked this beautiful lodge with all the gorgeous green space & the river that flows nearby. We had a room where we could hear the river from and it was very soothing. We also trekked up the river in the rain. Was quite lovely. This lodge is about 15 minutes from Moni and also quite close... More

We wish to thank you for your report on our Kelimutu Crater Lakes Eco Lodge. You must have been in one of the rooms above the resturant. For those who wish their own verandah, it is best to book a cottage (we currently have five but are in the process of building 5 more). Thank you Management and staff of... More

We had dinner at the eco lodge when we were in moni and found it to be ok but extremely overpriced, we paid 150.000 pp excl 21 % tax for a basic menu option. The location and the service are fine , the basic food is just not worth that kind of money in our opinion.

Your report on our lodge is referred to. You only seem to have mentioned the food and yet have given us a low rating. Our evening "meal of the day" for Rp 150,000 is a three course meal with coffee. The menu offers local food as that is what most of clients wish. For less than US 15 this is... More

Pros: The location and proximity to the Kelimutu crater lakes. Lush greenery surrounding the Lodge. During the day, I enjoy chilling out on the balcony and just taking in the breeze. It is also nice to have breakfast with views of the rice fields. Cons: I did find that the washbasin is rather small and therefore difficult to use. The... More

We overnighted at the peaceful Udayana eco-lodge, Denpasar and spent a quiet, beautiful day in the gardens watching butterflies - then to Flores. Our group of 7 had 2 nights at Kelimutu eco-lodge. It rained buckets on our arrival day, the sunrise over the crater lakes was clouded over so we set off later in the morning and were thrilled... More

We stayed at Kelimutu Eco Lodge for 1 night, really just to see the crater lakes. The grounds are beautiful and clearly a lot of thought has gone into the plants and vegetation, it is very lush and pretty. The rooms are quite small but clean, nice and comfortable.

Thank you for your comments and for emphasizing the vagaries of the weather and suggesting longer stays to obtain the full value of the lakes experience. It is a pity to travel far for only a few minutes in the clouds. The lakes on a clear dawn are magic. We regret we are unable to do anything bout your cost... More
