Komodo Guesthouse

Guesthouse in Komodo

Located on Komodo Island and just five-minutes' walk from the dock, this six-room guesthouse has a long, covered porch that's elevated and offers ocean views. Rooms are basic but have fans (there's electricity 6pm to midnight) and you can organise meals through park rangers. Reserve when you arrive on the island or ahead by phone.

It's not uncommon to see Komodo dragons ambling past, especially at dawn and dusk. The stars at night and the raw sounds of nature are intoxicating.
