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.

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 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...

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

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.
