Welcome to Keong Villas, where each villa has unique, beautiful, natural living and breathing spaces, that you’ll remember long after your stay. The Keong Villas are designed to capture the breeze, which provides a natural airflow that a typical “box” style of accommodation simply cannot do.
Keong Villas provide the perfect balance of privacy and open space, all underpinned by state of the art infrastructure that this part of the archipelago has never seen before.
The waves on and around Rote need little introduction. From the famous long left-hander on Besialu reef (Or also known as T-Land) to the long whackable walls of Boa, and the tubes of Sucky Mama’s there is just about always extremely high-quality waves on offer to suit all abilities.
For beginners, we have fun waves at Squealers and the Bommie, and a whole range of reefs and reef passes if SUP or foiling is your thing.
We also realize time is precious so we work on your time, not ours. Our shuttle boats are on-demand so you and your friends or family can surf on your schedule, and pick the tides and winds you prefer.
The team at Keong Villas have a combined 35 years of experience in this area. They know every nook and cranny and have seen each and every spot on its day (as well as not so much). If you would prefer to sit back and let our team put you in the spot, we can do that too. Keong is all about flow after all.
Simply the best on Rote.
Discerning global food worshipers take notice. You may not always recall your best cutback at Nembrala; however, you will never forget the cuisine.
Your menu is designed and prepared by Maria Pinero, our Spanish, and Argentine trained chef, and her team.
Maria sources a wide range of market-fresh ingredients including a rich variety of fresh-caught sashimi quality fish and seafood, local fowl, pork, etc.
Healthy, organic, and homemade, this is not your traditional Indonesian surf trip experience. Each day provides a new opportunity to sample Maria’s gourmet South American, Mediterranean, and Asian fusion dishes. Local ethnic flavors complement the high-end culinary execution of each dish, leaving the consumer counting the minutes until the next meal.
Rote Island Activities
Scuba Diving and Snorkeling
Come explore Rote Island’s clear turquoise water filled with abundant fish and coral. Explore what lies beneath with our snorkel gear or go out on a diving expedition to go deeper into the Indian Ocean.
Fisherman, may we advise you that these island channels are, for the most part, unexploited by sports fisherman. This should be inspiration enough for the intrepid sportsman to book one of our boat charters out to fish Rote’s offshore islands. Each of these small gems offers an intriguing venue for trolling, bottom fishing opportunities, and spearfishing.
While the world of sport fishing is full of melancholy “should have been here yesterday” fables, our expert guide can assure you of the very best chance of landing some seriously good eating. A good day can yield a bonanza of delicious prey. Our guests catch many of the sashimi quality Spanish mackerel and Tuna, as well as a BBQ bounty of Travels and Barracuda. Maria, our Argentine chef would be delighted to serve up, “Argentine style,” your catch of the day.
Guided Day Tour: An island tour inside a comfortable car will take you to places you cannot find on your own, spots that are known only to in-the-know locals, worthy of a camera, good company, and a Bintang.
Bicycling: Through the village roads and up into the island for sweeping views and isolated white sand beaches.
Motorbiking: Take a more motorized approach to your exploration, contact us for a rental scooter and drive off into the sunset.
Quaint village roads allow for easy exploration. There is much fun simply touring the narrow, quiet one-lane roads that curve through the small beachside villages, around every corner is a new lagoon to discover.
See more of the beaches and bays with a bird’s eye view. Rocky headlands provide picturesque photo opportunities and a new perspective.
An adventure all its own, few things compare to the feeling of sailing in the tropics. With the steady trade winds, sailing on our 34 foot Warram Catamaran is a once in a lifetime experience.
The trade winds that groom our perfect surf also serve another purpose: filling your kite and propelling you across the Southern tip of Rote. Kiteboarders will find their paradise on a three-kilometer strip of sand known as “Kite Beach”, with daily 18-24 knot winds throughout the regular dry season.
Ikat textile shopping
Nusa Tenggara is considered the birthplace of Ikat textile-arts. Here on Rote, you will frequently see a wide variety of shawls, sarongs, and blankets among the townspeople. Most of which are intricately hand weaved. Keep in mind that the island is very private (non-commercial); consequently, it is often difficult to source a store or salesperson offering these wares. As such, be sure to ask our staff where you can see a good selection of these one-of-a-kind hand spun crafts.
We suggest booking all accommodations and transfers through us, so you can get to Keong comfortably and hassle-free. Travel logistics to remote places in Indonesia can get quite frustrating if they are not handled with the experience of the local agents.
