My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights to view the crater and rewind for the last few days of our holiday. The price was considerably more that what we had been paying for in other places throughout Indonesia, and I'm undecided as to if it really warranted it. The room was okay, but had a lot of ants...

Great value for money and amazing service from Ben and his team. The property is slightly old but they have kept it up so well and it is certainly the best option for staying in the lovely village of Moni. The food was delicious (esp compared to what we had experienced traveling through Flores) but just your standard Nasi Goreng,... More

I think this hotel might be the best hotel in Kelimutu as i didn't see any proper hotels near by the area. They dont have TV in the rooms, nor in the public area. But they have hot water! Thanks GOD😄 Room size is quite big with nice terrace and view. If you want to visit Kelimutu lake in the... More

Thank you for your comments. We purposely do not have TV in rooms as most guests come to enjoy the area and actually do not want TV or to be disturbed by others with TV. We can import TVs for special occasions. Thank you for your support More

The grounds and the lodge are attractive and there is a river rushing by the edge. There is hot water but the bathroom is tiny. There is no air conditioning but the mountain air is pleasant enough. The staff are friendly and the area is delightfully quiet. The rooms are not very clean, however. There were dead roaches on the... More

This place is really charming and i can recommend it to everyone willing to pay a bit more for a nice room ( instead of staying in a depressing losmen). We had one of the Bungalows close to the entrance. The room was big enough for 2 Ladies and luggage, it was very clean and nicely decorated. The Beds are... More

Nice but overprices what what you get. They have very nice grounds but super basic and run down rooms. But it's probably the nicest place to stay in Moni. If you like walking, it's a walking distance to Moni. There is no wi-fi. But no other place in Moni had wi-fi either (as of June 2016)

We refer to your report and regret have little to say. You lack specificity except for the price. Our rooms are actually very new and maybe your complaints refer to lack of room service which we will attend to. If you wish cheaper places there are plenty of good home stays. We believe the price is very fair considering our... More

Thank you for your report on your likes and dislikes. Your dislikes have been noted by the Manager. It is difficult to avoid insects in a natural situation. If you were in the rooms where the water is solar heated, the water can go cold with excessive use. If you need more food at breakfast, our staff can easily oblige... More

Unfortunately, like many, we didn't get to spend much time at this lodging. We arrived late, got up for sunset, and left not long after breakfast. We did get to walk around after breakfast and fell in love with the lovely gardens, and riverside setting among the rice field and mountains. The rooms are way more than adequate. The cottages...

Nice location, friendly and helpful staff in Bali Office and at the Kelimutu Moni. Good hot water. I really don't understand complaints about the bathroom. They provide a mosquitos net too over the bed. We were groups of 7 motorbikers. Very satisfied with the service.
