I already knew this hotels chain so, since I had to spend only one day in Moni I decided to book it. I attended the kelimutu excursion and it was very well organized. It was not "only" the sunrise at the crater lakes but also a visit to local villages and nearby waterfalls was included. This was a really amazing... More

Thank you for your positive report on our lodge at Kelimutu, which we appreciate. We don't wish to be compared with the Home stays in Moni. We are not a homestay, most of whcih are excellent but we believe we are a special place in a special location giving us guests peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings. More

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

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!
