We stayed here our first night in Flores - in a holiday packed full of highs staying at the Eco Lodge Moni was a highlight within itself.
We stayed in one of the chalets. Everything was very clean (a quality not to be taken for granted I was to learn throughout the course of our trip) and the bed was very inviting with white cotton sheets and cosy duvet. The bathroom had western fittings and is open air - having a hot shower under the morning sun after having done the chilly Kelimutu sunrise climb was a moment I will cherish.
The location is even more stunning. The lodge is set in the midst of beautiful unspoilt Flores countryside - it's quite a distance from the town so it is very quiet and peaceful. In fact the only sounds are that of the river bubbling away and the birds in the forest opposite the lodge. And the nighttime sky is worth the trip alone!
We only stayed one night as we had one week to cross Flores. I wish we could have stayed longer! I understand that there are some nice walks that can be done in the area and the cooler climate in Moni makes for more pleasant walking conditions.
I would recommend this place to anyone - it was the nicest accomodation we found in Flores by a considerable distance.
