We had the best guiding services from the crew at the Eco-Lodge. Patrise was a great guide for birds, translating with the weavers, and sharing the volcano lakes and the beautiful jungle trails! Pang drove so safely and to places for textiles that were literally not roads! The lodge staff were friendly and prompt! We loved Flores and recommend the... More

We made a reservation originally for 3 people (for one room). Then we realised the driver had to stay overnight and rang them. They then gave us two rooms. When we arrived after dark they told us there was a special place to sleep for drivers so we asked him to sleep there and he was okay with that as... More

One night stay here as most people do for the Kelimutu trekking. The restaurant is overprised and inflexible. Much better selection in Moni village 1 km away. Ask for the rooms in the top of the garden as they have better views. Bevare of lot of mosquitos.

Your comments re our price and being okay are of interest to us. However we doubt whether you would get such a beautiful location and such a lodge anywhere in the world at such a cheap price. We agree there are cheaper reddtuarants in Moni but none have this location. Thank you for staying with us More

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 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
