If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve already read about all the amazing things to do in Komodo National Park.
Now you know all about Komodo Island, its time to actually plan the trip yourself. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered, we’ll give you some tips to plan your trip to Komodo National Park.
Getting a flight
First of all, you’ll need to get to Bali or Jakarta, both have excellent international airports. Many international flights connect from Singapore, Malaysia or Dubai, making an easy transit into the island of the Gods. Why not spend a night in Bali while you transit? Sudamala Suites & Villas Sanur is a beautiful boutique hotel located only 30 minutes from the airport in Sanur. Start your holiday on the right note!
Bali to Komodo National Park
Once you’re in Bali, you’re already halfway there! Now, there are several options to reach Komodo National Park. Here are our favorites:
Direct flight to Labuan Bajo
A direct flight to Labuan Bajo is by far the quickest and easiest way to arrive. Since these are domestic flights that are limited to only a couple of flights per day, be sure to book these relatively early. There are also often last minute changes to these schedules, so be sure to allow for plenty of time between connecting flights.
Once you arrive in Labuan Bajo, all you need to do is take a boat ride or follow a tour to get to Komodo National Park.
Ferry to Labuan Bajo
If you’re feeling adventurous, another option to get to Komodo Island is by taking a ferry. This is definitely the cheapest option to get there, and also the longest, taking up to 36 hours. That extra time is due to the sailing route to Labuan Bajo that can be a bit tricky to navigate through. This is not a route we’d recommend for our guests, but it is an option.
How to get to Sudamala Resorts, Seraya
There are two ways to arrive to our beautiful corner of paradise. The first is by speedboat taking 15-20 minute, the second is by traditional wooden boat 45-60 minutes from Kampung Ujung harbor in Labuan Bajo. Kampung Ujung harbor is approximately 7-10 minutes by car from the Komodo airport.
