We recently stayed at the beautiful ecolodge and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly , the food good, rooms comfy with great views from the balcony. Lovely and cool too.

Your report is exceptional and thank you for mentioning our staff. Without any prompting from our main office in Bali, they acted by themselves in the affair of your stolen wallet. The funds in your wallet (2 million Rps) were refunded by the staff themselves from their service fund; they also paid for the airfare of our guide Patrise from... More

Our two night on Flores was spent in this very special hotel. Beautiful lodges set in a beautiful garden surrounded by rice fields and natural vegetation. Highlight was when the chef arranged for a trip into the local village to hear a local choir sing. A great start to our time on Flores.

The lodge is set in a super picturesque spot alongside a small river surrounded by rice paddies and mountain scenery. Potential guests should be aware it’s located outside of Moni village so if you want to go into Moni for dinner in the evening it’s a 20-odd minute walk along an unlit road (unless you have a kind driver that...

We stayed only one night here as part of an Intrepid tour group. The bungalow was very nice with twin beds and a mosquito net. Although the beds are twin, they are very close together so if sharing with someone you're not intimate with, you might want to try for two rooms. Bathrooms were cute with open roofs (but included...

The location is really nice and the bungalows from outside are beautiful but they really need a refresh inside specially the bathrooms. Also for the price you pay you don't have any shampoo/ shower gel witch should be a minimum in that hotel range.

Reference your comments on our prices. With respect, the beautiful location, our investment and our determination to put 70% of our net profits back into the environment do not merit your comments on price. We are unable to find a source of eco shampoo and will continue our search to satisfy your bathroom criticism Thank you for your stay More

“All the rooms are separate bungalows and seemed very nice. Take an umbrella in the wet season.”

“The furthest rooms have best views... the end room has a stunning wrap-around vista of the terraced rice fields.”
  • Room was very nicely presented, the mosquito nets were not just decorative!
  • Bathroom basic but has all you need.
  • Lush terraced rice fields... view from the end room!
  • Our room was next to the river but with a view to the terraced rice fields beyond
