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

We refer to your report of your stay at our Kelimutu Crater Lakes Eco Lodge. This lodge is a solar energy lodge and we purposely do not have TVs or kettles in our rooms to save unnecessary use of electricity; also most of our guests do not come for this purpose, they come for a total rest, to see the...

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. We especially liked your concept of a "retreat" as we now own the whole of the valley and shortly will open our second phase including a small conference centre and 11 more rooms in fice new cottages.

Back after 4 years and everything is still in a good condition!! Well-done!! Nice welcome, clean rooms and beautiful location. It would be nice to improve the water-pressure, sorry I know it is maybe less eco however a nice shower after long walks is essential. The service in the restaurant could be more efficient and faster and made us decide... More
