Sunset cottages was the final two nights of a 10 day dive and trekking trip across Flores. Situated about 30km from the town of Maumere (on the airport side) in amongst palm trees and well groomed grounds.

We heard a rumor that sunset did a great fish dinner, so we ordered one in the morning. We received a huge chunk of tuna cooked perfectly over an open flame so it was juicy and slightly smoked. I never knew tuna could taste so good. Highly recommend!

We wound up our 2 weeks trip in Flores with 4 nights here. Idyllic place, thatched bungalows open at the roof but with tiled floors only a few steps from the beach. Bathrooms are basic with bucket style showers, but it's comfy enough, mozzie nets over the beds and a nice porch. 250k in high season, but can be discounted...

Stayed here for some relaxation during a backpacking trip round Flores. I stayed in one of the bungalows, it was cool and spacious and pretty. Basic but clean bathroom, cold water shower but it's so hot you don't want hot water. Friendly staff helped organise a hike up Mount Egon (tough but so worth it!) and to the local Arak...
