My partner and I have stayed there for 3 nights. We enjoyed our time, staff was very friendly but service was limited - no wi-fi, no motorbike for rent and the swimming pool was out of order. But food was perfect, especially tasty breakfast. Rooms are clean and comfortable for reasonable price, one of the best accommodation we've been on... More

Stopped there for lunch, didn't sleep there though...lovely location, if you like peace and quiet...you see and hear the ocean from the restaurant...swimming pool pool was closed for maintenance though...distance to the city is about 10 km, regular public transport passes on the main road

This cute accommodation was probably the best place within 7 months of traveling through Southeast Asia. After traveling through all of Flores from the West till Maumere we had really amazing and relaxing 4 days here. As it already was about to get low season, we were the only guests (consider this when you want to come here alone), and... More

Flores was pretty basic travelling but the Sao Wisata resort was everything we needed at the end a hectic week in Flores. We stayed in a standard room with cod water. i think we were 2 of 4 guests at the hotel but the service was still good and they were very helpful with all of our requests. The beach... More

Great hotel, quiet, relaxing, very professional staff. Harry is amazing. Thoughtful, very nice, helpful with absolutely everything. He is working hard on environmental issues, involving neighboring schools and fishermen.

If you are after a quiet place outside of the town of Maumere Sao Wisata is great. Its owner Hari looked after us so well during our visit this April. We were the only guests but the A/C, food, service from him and his staff made it a wonderful place to relax. We stayed 4 nights in total either side... More

This was the best guest house I have ever stayed in Indonesia considering the facts- friendliness, food, cleanliness, beach location, newly renovated place. Harry is amazing and is full of resources. I usually take the time to write either very good or very bad service. So, if you are get stuck in Maumere like me for various reasons ( flight... More

We had booked to stay 3 nights but stayed only one. This is a bit of a sadly dilapidated place. Was practically empty. Rooms and facilities are dated, but with A/C in standard rooms. The food was not great. Expensive compared with other better places to stay nearby.

In 1992 an earthquake devastated this area of Flores along with this hotel. I stayed two nights in August 2011 and it is under complete renovation. It is expected to be completed in December 2011. As a result my two night stay was not the best experience. The lobby area is used as storage, the pool is empty, there are... More
