Reaching us is a very simple process, however, there are a few things that you should take into consideration before booking:
-To get to Kupang we recommend flying with GarudaIndonesia. There are daily flights between Bali and Kupang, and you can book via their website: www.garuda-indonesia.com/us/ or call their hotline: 08041807807 or +62(021)23519999. The cost is usually between 500,00 and 800,00 RP each way. Other airlines: Merpati, Lion Air, Transnusa, Wings Air. A good app to download is Indonesia Flights.- Wings Air now flies to Rote every day at 15.10 allowing you to reach Rote on the same day you leave Bali. http://www.lionair.co.id
The ferry leaves from Kupang to Rote once a day at 8.30am. It returns from Rote back to Kupang at about 11am. The crossing takes around two hours. There is a Wings Air flight which leaves on a Monday, Thursday and Saturday at 3pm. Providing the ferry leaves on time, you should be able to get this flight. If you are travelling back on the days which the Wings Air flight does not run, then you will have to spend the night in Kupang again.
- There are a few options for accommodation in Kupang: Hotel La Hasienda comes highly recommended, with free pick up from the airport, good food, clean and comfortable accommodation. German owned. They also offer transport to the ferry and can organise ferry and plane tickets. Check them out at www.hotellahasienda.com.
Hotel Maliana is a bit more basic with cold water, Indonesian style bathrooms and may score slightly lower on the comfort scale. However, it is very central, cheap ( around $20US for a room with air conditioning) and Bobby the owner will also help to arrange onward travel such as ferry and plane tickets and taxis to the ferry etc. You can SMS to book a room +628123765265.
The Swiss-Belinn Kristal Hotel is a more upmarket establishment.
On The Rock is a new upmarket hotel
If you have booked to stay with us we will send Edmund to collect you from the ferry terminal. This costs 330,000RP, and you can pay him directly (as we don't take any of this). If you wish to split the costs with other travels, Edmund will drop them off along the way.
It takes a little over an hour to reach us from the ferry. Happy Travels!
