Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We love everything about the resort and the view is very beautiful..We will be back again for sure :) My only suggestion for the hotel is to improve their menu in the restaurant adding more snacks like nuggets,etc and to sell a full board packages.

Dear Nuno P, Thank you for selecting Sudamala Resort, Seraya for your holidays. Your quote regarding the googled paradise pictures is so true. Our location is truly special, crystal clear lagoon, a house reef filled with tropical fish, nice thatch roofed huts directly on the beach and a cocktail under a palm tree. This is exactly what our place is like. Thank you very much as well for your kind words to our staff, they all do a fantastic job and make your stay a memorable one. The whole team is looking forward to welcoming you back in the future. We wish you a Happy New Year 2019!

We spend one night there for my girldfriend's birthday, it was absolutely perfect.40min from Labuan Bajo harbor by wooden boat, the resort is stunning and the bungalows are very confortable with a nice view.Amazing snorkeling beach, sunset view with cocktails on top of the hill, the food is really good and tasty, we took the romantic dinner and it was classic but we enjoyed it. Service and staff are so great and very helpful. Spa is nice too.We do recommend for a break in this beautiful lost island.

Dear JulesS379, Thank you for choosing Sudamala Resort, Seraya to celebrate your partner’s birthday and we truly appreciate you taking the time to write a review of your experience. I noted that you have stayed in one of our Private Beach Bungalows with an outdoor bathroom and must agree that it is a unique experience to have this and be able to shower under the stars. It adds to the very special island feel the resort provides. During the sunny months we have a sunset bar on the top of the hill behind the resort, the ideal place for sundowner. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

I read lots of review before booking. I was hesitant as many of the bad reviews centered around the resort restaurant service and food quality. But I took my chances and I'm happy to say I have no regrets. I went during low season and the resort was just half occupied and it felt great. try to go in November. Which is the beginning of rainy season. But there isn't a single day of rain while we are there. The Resort I'm a bit of an architectural snob :) So I have high expectation when it comes to design and aesthetic. Sudalama is tasteful and understated. Caribbean feel of white and thatch roof gives it a the right island getaway feel. The villas are steps away from the crystal clear coral beach. The size are just right for couples.

Dear 290kcc, Thank you for choosing to stay with us during your recent trip to Indonesia. And a special thank you for the time taken to write such a complete and positive review. We have been blessed with some very nice weather during the month of November, although it is technically the start of the rainy season we have hardly had rain. It gave you and our other guests even more time on the beach or snorkeling on the house reef. Our house reef is located right at the end of the jetty and we are lucky to be spared from the ripping currents that are famous in the Komodo area. Our resort is also the only one where you can safely go diving during the day or even at night. We have noted your feedback on the breakfast and the food and beverage team will handle that, at the same time I must agree with you that the french toast are delicious. We look forward to welcoming you again at Sudamala Resort, Seraya. We wish you a Happy New Year 2019!

Pleasant stay, great reef just few metes in front of the bungalow. Compared to general Indonesian price level more expensive, but great ratio value x money. Nice trip to Komodo and surrounding reefs. Helpful staff.

We absolutely loved this place. The little beach bungalows are amazing and very nicely furnished. Although there is no television it forces you to focus on the quiet that surrounds you. The beach is beautiful and great for snorkelling. The service and staff is very friendly and efficient aswell. There is a dinner buffet every evening and the food is good although there is not a lot of options. Vegetarian or Vegan diets might be difficult. We also booked a one day tour with the dive centre to visit Komodo National Park and they did a great job we enjoyed every minute of it. The only negative point is the cost of the speed boat to the island. There is a free shuttle boat service but it takes 30 minutes longer and only departs at particular times. Unfortunately our flight was

Dear Prinsliii, Thank you for staying with us at Sudamala Resort, Seraya and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We are pleased to read you have enjoyed the resort and its surroundings. We have taken note of your feedback related to the meals and I can inform you that we have meanwhile changed into a more intimate a-la-carte dining style. Our chef is always ready to discuss specific needs and adjust menu options to satisfy vegetarian guests. The resort offers a free transfer from the harbour in Labuan Bajo twice daily and aside from that we also offer the possibility to arrive by speedboat. The speedboat is a paying option with the freedom of choosing your arrival or departure time, and as mentioned reduces the travel time significantly. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. The whole team at Sudamala Resort, Seraya wishes you a Happy New Year 2019!

The hotel has only beach fronted Bungalows with outdoor bathrooms. The bungalows are spacious and tastful decorated. A fridge is available as well as an aircon.The service is really excellent and friendly .The beach is sandy and reminded us with the long jetty of the Maldives. The food ranges from ok to very good, depending on available supplies. The menue is a la carte and the breakfast offers a great variety of food. Lunches are served until 15.30, which is great as you can still have lunch after a half day diving. The place is very remote and perfect for couples and people looking for tranquility and the perfect relax. But also for families its a suitable stay. For divers it may be not the cheapest but one of the best, if not the best option to dive Komodo. There is nothing

Positive things: 1) Friendly staff (doing their best to help customers) 2) Bungalow style is nice 3) House reef offers good snorkeling Negative things: It is definitely not worth it $260/night that we paid. A fair price would be around $100/night. 1) Dive center: we went straight to the dive center as soon as arrived (early morning) to book dives and trip to Komodo/pink beach/Padar. We were told that they were fully booked for the next day (no availability for the scheduled dive trip) and they could only offer a dive at their house reef the next day (am I going all the way to Komodo only for a dive at their house reef ??). We then booked the trekking trip to Komodo/pink beach/Padar for our 3rd and last day on the island which also includes a dive at turtle city. The trip is

The room is very spacious and stylish. The feeling of getting out the room and put the feet in the sand is gorgeous. The reef in front of the hotel is fantastic to snorkel. The diving facilities are very nice with helpful and competent staff and equipment in very good conditions. The room service is good - Worst of all is restaurant. They try to diversify some foods, but misses creativity and quality. At the 2nd day of our stay, me, my wife and other guests got a serious food intoxication (fever, diarrhea, vomiting, headache and muscular pain), and never felt any support from staff. I spoke with some of them, but they just smile (or they don’t know what it is, or because of their poor English they didn’t understand). The schedule for dinner is from 19:00 to 22:00, once we went
