Established in 2017, The Seraya offers a unique beach resort experience that melds the familial with the luxurious. A low-impact and eco-minded destination backdropped by the beauty of Komodo National Park. Our iconic Bamboo Manta restaurant forms the centrepiece, testament to our twin passions of sustainable, low-impact construction and the wonders found beneath the waves. Explore the wonders of the house reef by snorkel and kayak, or experience the tranquility of solitude on your own corner of our 200-meter private beach. Venture out to Komodo National Park and take in all its beauty through trekking and snorkelling tours or sign up to dive expeditions with our brand new five star PADI dive operation, Seraya Divers. Spacious private bungalows tucked under the tamarind trees that line our private beach and nestled in our hilltop gardens offer divine comfort on the doorstep of paradise.

We were a couple with 4 children and spend 5 nights in this beautiful paradise ! The Seraya eco lodge is in a small island, with just 2 resorts and 1 fisher village and nature, nature, nature! We spend Christmas there and the owner and all the staff gave us the feeling, being like in a big family. In Christmas eve we jumped over to a tiny island toasting with each other. If you are looking for a place with all amenities but in incomparable surroundings in entire nature, The Seraya Eco lodge is the right place! We’ll come back for sure!

I recently stayed at the Seraya for 3 nights and I will definitely be returning. Reaching the island of Seraya kecil was hassle free and the staff were extremely welcoming and lovely. The resort is the perfect mix of luxe and rustic, and the swimming, snorkeling and lounging spots around the island are magical. The delicious communal buffet style dinners add to the laid back, family vibe and my bungalow was the perfect place to end the days. I can't wait to go back. Thanks so much

Our family have enjoyed a sensational 5 day stay at The Seraya. The island holiday was made easy from the moment we were greeted by Seraya staff at Labuan Bajo airport and transferred to the island by boat. The accommodation is very comfortable and wonderfully located on a beach which is heaven for swimming and snorkelling.The service, food and hospitality provided was excellent, a highlight being the Nasi Tamping Seafood Banquet that was provided on New Year's Eve followed by a beach bonfire. The activities on offer for our stay were well organised and very professionally run by trained staff. The Seraya provided a brilliant island holiday for our family.

Our adventure to the Seraya started with being met at the Airport at Labuan Bajo by the car & taken to their Cafe we called the ‘ holding lounge’ above the Port where did did our final emails & text messages for a week before being escorted to the local timber launch for our 1 hour trip to the Island. A greeting party awaited us at the end of their jetty and all the beautiful coral inviting us in as we walked along the jetty to the main focal point of the resort being the restaurant/ bar underneath the very cleverly designed Manta Ray thatched roof on an enormous bamboo structure. We chose to be beachfront in one of the A frame bamboo bungalows which was 30 metres to the high tide mark & a short stroll from the pool which is the ‘roundabout’ from the jetty & Restaurant. Our air conditioned bungalow had a couple of steps to the deck out the front with 2 sun loungers and then sliding doors into our bedroom which was all bambooo including the floor. A large bed with mosquito netting in front then access either side behind to our clothes shelves and door into the outside bathroom which was large and private with sails mesh netting and well equipped with a toilet to the left, large shower in the middle and basin to the right with a drying ladder (a few more drying hooks would have been handy, as would have been a chair in our room). Full board meals worked well with a choice of eggs and extras or banana pancakes after a lovely fruit platter, then a main course lunch and 3 course set dinner- a mixture of local and western food on different days. We eat and enjoyed every meal and left nothing on our plates. Our daily routine was swim at 6 then breakfast at 7 read, sunbathe, snorkeling, snoozing , swimming relaxing and eating and were tucked up in bed by 9 every evening( apart from New Years Eve where we needed to digest a traditional seafood banquet which was delicious and sat around a fire under the stars until late. The snorkeling off the jetty was awesome and best on high tide as the coral was too shallow close in on low tide. We saw an incredible amount of sea life there each day & on our final day we went out on their own timber junk Dalliance as a mixed group of divers & snorkelers for a big day out in Komodo National Park with their own Divers School to 3 dive spots and witnessed Manta Rays, reef sharks, turtles, cuttlefish & so much more. An unforgettable holiday- thank you. Nick & Rainee

From the moment I set foot on their dock, I was impressed with the attention to detail that the Seraya family has clearly put into their business: the warm welcome, the helpful introductions by the staff, and of course, the abundance of places to relax and take in the natural splendor of the island -- I couldn't walk 20 feet without being tempted by a beach chair, hammock, or beanbag of some kind. Oh, and of course there's the (unexpected!) zero-edge pool, which I found was the preferred hangout of the illustrious Inka, patron Bear-Dog Saint of the island. Truly a gem of a dog! 6 stars! As far as amenities are concerned, my every need was met: the bungalows are the definition of well-appointed, communal meals under the "Manta" were consistently delicious -- particularly the curry and fried shrimp -- as were the packed lunches of more traditional Indonesian fare we ordered for our daytrips. The bar was top notch as well. I recommend their tequila cocktail... I'm blanking on the name, but the 10 or 20 I had were fantastic! When the time came to plan our day trips, Octa, Georgie, and Will were easy to work with, and we were able to do everything we had hoped (Komodo, swim with Mantas, various other dives, etc.) with time to spare at the end to relax and snorkel around their local reef (where I was happy to see they were growing some beautiful coral to add to an already beautiful underwater tableau). Lastly, a small sidebar: as an avid boardgame enthusiast, I was happy to see they kept a stock on the premises, a welcome way to pass the time without the distraction of the internet. But I was quite shocked when I noticed that Will kept SCYTHE -- a personal favorite, but not an especially popular strategy game-- in his collection. Needless to say, I was excited to challenge Will, but I have to admit my only disappointment with my experience at The Seraya is that Will didn't prove much of a challenge -- I pretty much wiped the floors with him each of the four nights I stayed there. Better luck next time, Will! :) In any case, the abundant and professional hospitality, paired with the warmth and personal touches of a small, family-run business make The Seraya a truly special place to stay, I can't recommend it highly enough! Thank you all again for an amazing stay!
