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.

The hotel is beautifully located, outside the town with great views of the stunning surroundings and a beautiful garden. The rooms are simple but clean and stylish. During the evening the hotel decided to throw a party for a big tour group, which felt out of place in this context. It is also strange since everyone is recommended to leave... More

The early start certainly does require an early start. We will ensure any celebrations end early (around 0900) and also any guest not involved could stay in the outlying bungalows. More

This place is far too expensive for what they offer. We booked the family room, consisting of 2 rooms (one double and one triple) for 5 people. We did not get this room but 2 other rooms. The rooms were lovely, new and had great views. But we got quite disappointed by the service. The breakfast was included in the... More

We have looked into your booking and complaints, which are legitimate. We have no excuses, especially re the shortage of stock, except that it occurred when our Manager was on leave. We obviously need improvement in this area. You should have been charged the family rate. The only thing we can do is to give you a free family room... More

We stayed here for one night..it is the best Accommodation in Moni..But by far the most expensive and not really worth the value for money. We paid 700.000 IDR for standard room which was very basic and not even toiletries provided. Breakfast was very ordinary and The portion was too small. The location is 1 km from the main traveler...

We refer to your report about our Kelimutu Crater Lakes Eco Lodge. Your remarks about breakfast and toiletries in the bathroom will be investigated. However your remarks re price are not accepted. Our price reflects the large investment we have put into this lodge (including a solar energy system) in this unique and the peaceful and beautiful location. Few hotels... More

Very nice, clean and relaxing hotel, situated in a very beautiful and calm place. We enjoyed staying there and really liked it. They have expensive Kelimutu lake excursion tour, but there is no touristic infrastructure around, and probably no choice of arranging it by yourself. Still that is the best place to stay for Kelimutu lakes tracking. We would highly... More

We thank you for your remarks about our eco lodge. We believe it is a special and restful place and have just upgraded the solar power unit. The cost of the Lakes tour includes the vehicle, park entrance fees and guide for half a day. We only employ local people so all your funds stay with the people who are... More

This is perfect for a stop over on the way to Kelimutu. The rooms are basic but comfortable. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the food was lovely. We were given lots of banana treats and a welcome drink when we arrived. Th only problem was the drainage of the bathroom, which seemed to be at the wrong... More

A very nice place in the nature. Our bungalows were located by the river with ricefield view. The room was very clean and the riverflow sound helped soothing us to sleep. Breakfast was good with options of pancake or eggs. We enjoy our stay there tho very short.

Kelimutu Eco Lodge is nice for what it is, but it could be better designed. I went in the wet season so there was quite a bit of rain during my stay. The only thing I didn't like about it is the way the roof of the rooms are structured. The toilet and bathroom is outside of the room which... More

The lodge has cottages and rooms in a lovely setting, very quiet and with beautiful gardens. We can see Mount Kelimutu from some of the rooms and from the gardens. Our room was large and clean, with mosquito net. The food was reasonable but nothing very special. The service is slow but the food is served with a friendly smile.... More

We thank you for your report and will certainly alert our restaurant staff to your complaint of slow service. We believe that our price is reasonable if you take into consideration capital costs, your privacy and the unique location in a valley where the lodge owns the whole entrance of the valley with a river flowing through the middle.

We thank you for your helpful comments about our Kelimutu Crater Lakes Eco Lodge.
