Basic but clean bungalows with hot water shower and wifi that worked . Nice Owner and staff and a very nice breakfast on our outside sitting area. Stayed one night only whilst visiting the Islands for flying foxes and snorkelling. Dined on bbqd fish at Cafe De Mare which was excellent.

The room was cheap and clean, with mosquito nets and a very good bed. All the rooms surrounded a nice garden. The breakfast was excellent with fruit salad, good bread with jam and butter, sometimes fried bananas, with tea or coffee. The staff was friendly and Tom, the manager, organized snorkeling trips to 17 islands and arranged my transfer to... More

A review long overdue, stayed here for 2 nights with some friends so had several rooms for all of us (one very new room - better bathroom; one triple room, & our room which was not so new but still nice. All with veranda overlooking the garden). The mosquito net was clean and not dusty. It was a very good... More

The renovated bungalows are clean and comfortable. The airco is not really necessary when the wind blows from the sea. A very good base to leave for the islands and snorkeling. The owner was away few times and he took the wifi router with him...so most of the time there was no internet. We were unlucky when we arrived because... More

Stayed here 4 nights in a bungalow with attached bathroom (open air, basic indonesian style but clean) for 250.000 IDR per night. The bungalows are quite basic but very clean with comfy beds and fresh smelling sheets, pillows and blankets. Quite location in a garden with coconut trees. Breakfast is included and served every morning in front of your bungalow.... More

Very nice and clean Bungalows! The owner like to talk, so use this chance and ask him everything u want about Riung and Flores! He speaks very good english. They serve the first W-Lan in Riung! If you want to go to Ende or Bajawa, don't worry about breakfast, you also get it that early in the morning!!!

Stayed her for two nights. The bungalows are beautiful and set around a little garden in the centre. Had one with a fan but plenty cool enough. Fantastic shower as well! Went on a boat trip to the marine park organised by the owner. One of the best days we had in Indonesia! Beautiful beaches, fantastic snorkelling and the best... More

Stayed two nights at Nirvana Bungalows and had a very enjoyable stay. The rooms were clean and had been freshly painted. Service was friendly and they organised our boat trip for the following day taking care of all necessities including lunch which we had barbecued for us on the beach of a deserted island. I certainly believe the place has... More

We were weary about stay here after many reviews commented on theft but this is where our driver recommended us to stay and we thought it was fine. They do appear to have beefed up security with someone in the general garden area all night which was reassuring. We felt totally safe staying there, didn't see any signs of break... More

What a surprise when arriving in Riung discovering Nirvana Bungalow! Charming and quiet place with discreet but nice staff. The room are clean, no bad surprise like bad smell in the bathroom. It has been the best place I found during my 10 days tour in Flores. The breakfast is like the surrounding garden : generous and delicious, it prepares... More
