This place was 3-4 times as expensive as some other places we stayed in Flores...so did it deliver value for money?
The villa was certainly very comfortable, and I would have no difficulty in believing that it is the most upmarket place to stay in Moni (it certainly was more upmarket than other places we stayed in Flores). It was a nice place to sit out on the balcony although in such an environment you must always be on the guard for the mosquitoes so some may not be able to fully relax!
The environment is green and countryside-like with buffalo grazing on the hill on the opposite side of the stream.
We didn't eat dinner here as we found the prices way out of line compared to even western eateries in Flores. We took the torch and walked to the hotel a couple of minutes back along the main road towards the village - that does decent, honest and cheap meals.
Overall I liked it, and it was a nice break from more basic places, but I didn't love it and I'm having difficulty saying that it is value for money compared to other places in Flores, which is why my mark cannot be any higher.
