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

We find this place is far better compared to the others in Riung. The bungalows are unique, with each of them has different art decorations on their wall. The bed is nice, they also provided towels. Bathroom is spacious. The breakfast is simple and healthy, with its bread is made by locals. Taste is good. It is within walking distance... More

This was such a welcome hotel! First, everything worked! Comfortable bed, clean, nice, funky, but basic decor with a working shower and a functional toilet. Power after dark. Great front deck area. Very good breakfast complete with tasty fresh buns, ample fresh fruit, tea or coffee and all served on your front porch shortly after you woke up. A refreshing... More

Nirvana is just okay, nice bungalows and not to much rooms. But that's about it. Riung deserves a better place but I don't think there is any. We took a boat trip arranged by the hotel to the 17 islands. Their trip is okay. Although they speak limited English and just follow the other boats, just what we didn't wanted.... More

We spent 2 nights at Nirvana Riung. We loved it. We paid 200.000 rph p/night. Nirvana is close to the harbour and the 2 restaurants of Riung. Bed perfect, musquitonet perfect, (cold) shower and toilet outside OK. Breakfast is poor for Western standards. Tom (owner) is a really helpfull guy. He will help you to arrange your daytrip and transport... More
