Flores, meaning ‘Flowers’, is only a short island hop away from Bali, and is quickly becoming a refuge for vacationers seeking to escape the crowded tourist scene in Indonesia.
The island boasts some of Indonesia’s lushest flora, whitest sandy beaches, remarkable wildlife found nowhere else in the world, and diverse cultures. Flores has something for everyone, with much left waiting to be discovered. If you’re planning to visit Indonesia, Flores deserves a spot on your travel itinerary.
Save the headache that can often accompany remote travel- luxurious tropical comfort awaits! Seraya Resort is a luxury resort complex in Flores located on the idyllic Seraya Kecil Island. We offer you a glimpse of paradise with beautiful rooms you will soon call your sanctuary, which either face the island’s pristine beach or the panoramic view of the Indian ocean. Our resort is designed for everyone from honeymooners to adventurers eager to uncover Indonesia’s unspoiled natural wonders.
Top 3 activities not to miss in Flores
Witness the largest monitor lizards in the world
Real dragons don’t breathe fire, they slither around with sharp teeth and a toxic bite. Komodo dragons are the world’s largest monitor lizards and are truly an impressive sight. No trip to Flores would be complete without seeing these rare and majestic reptiles that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. Watch these massive lizards bask in the sun, or if you’re lucky you can catch them fighting or feeding. Besides observing the Komodo dragons, the treks on Komodo and Rinca Island are spectacular! The trek not only offers the occasional Komodo dragons, but an expansive view of the park reserve as well. During your stay at Seraya Resort, we offer many tours and activities to help you explore Flores in depth. You can check our Komodo Island tour options here.
Dive or snorkel at the Komodo national park
Other than being well-known for the iconic Komodo dragons, the area’s underwater world is truly something else. Here you’ll find diverse marine creatures and vibrant reefs bursting with color and life. The usual inhabitants you’ll find here are harmless reef sharks, large schools of fish, and mantas elegantly gliding above or on the ocean floor. For non-divers, not to worry, snorkeling options are available as large parts of the island’s shallows are populated by coral reefs where, if you’re lucky, you can spot manta rays feeding at the surface of the water. If you’re looking to learn to dive, Flores is the perfect location sure to spoil you for the rest of your diving career. Seraya Resorts offers an in-house dive centre, opening in early 2018.
Admire and watch the sunrise at Kelimutu
One of the island’s biggest landmarks is the Kelimutu volcano, an iconic scene of Indonesian beauty.
However, it’s at the peak where the truly impressive treasure awaits – the tri-colored lakes. Nestled inside the mountains are crater lakes that sparkle with individual and unique colors that are so rich it almost appears as if they are made of paint.
