Complementary coffee, tea, biscuits and water (not bottled) are available for guests at any time.
Picnic lunches are available on request for those undertaking day excursions. Should you require a picnic hamper you will need to notify staff the evening before the planned excursion.
Please note that there will be no discount for guest dining out at the local Italian restaurant or with friends. Due to hygiene reasons and lack of cooking fuel, self-catering is not permitted at the lodge.
Should you not wish to eat in, would you please notify staff to help minimise waste of precious food.
Cold drinks are available from the refrigerator at the rear of the end of the dining room table, in the main house. Please remember to keep a tally on the sheet on top of the refrigerator.
Beer $3.00 Large water $1.50 Soft drinks $2.00 Small water $1.00
(All used aluminium cans are collected and sent to Dili for recycling. The Lodge encourages free water refills. The locals recycle plastic and glass bottles, using them for seed and coconut oil storage, as well as floats for their Seaweed farming- not ideal!)
Day trippers can purchase meals for the following prices:
Breakfast $ 5.00
Lunch $ 8.00
Morning or Afternoon Teas $ 3.00
Please note the Day Trippers who purchase meals are welcome to share in the complementary coffee, tea etc. and use of facilities of the Eco-Lodge.
Please assist our staff to keep stray village dogs away from the lodge, particularly the eating areas. They are a source of disease and at times become aggressive, particularly if fed by guests.
Due to potential problems with local dogs and our family dog, pets are not permitted to stay at the lodge with guests.
