Whether you are looking for a relaxing detachment from reality or a jam packed adventure holiday, The Seraya has got you covered...
Island Hopping & Rangko cave
Spend a day exploring neighbouring islets Hatamin and Anita, picnic on a secluded beach or go further to see the beautiful Rangko Cave.
We can organise various packages for guests, diving & snorkeling. Perfect day for all ages.
Half day or full day tours available
There is a local fishing village located on the south-eastern tip of the island. Guests enjoy seeing the culture of the village and visiting the local school. It is accessible via kayak or a short walk over the hill behind our hillside bungalows.
Each year, The Seraya hosts eco volunteers from French NGO Coral Guardian. The organisation works with the local communities to educate fishermen and children about the vital role the reef plays in their lives and how to restore those areas that have been destroyed by past activities including dynamite fishing.
Guests of The Seraya are welcome to take part in the program either as part of the week-long missions, or as part of a one-day experience learning about how the organisation transplants corals and engages the local community in the spirit of sustainability.
KOmodo national park
Take a day off lounging on our private white-sand beach to explore Komodo National Park and it’s unique creatures above and below the sea. Board our comfortable dayboat and choose between a full day of diving, snorkelling or just cruising from one beach to another.
Our exclusive team of professional divers will show you some of the most prestigious divesites. With small group ratios (1:4), we will safely guide you through the infamous current of Komodo.
Visits to Komodo or Rinca island to see the famed Komodo Dragons can be included upon request.
Seraya Kecil is located just under 9km due north of Labuan Bajo, setting sail from Kampung Ujung. Close enough to offer convenience, far enough away to transport our guests into serenity.
The Seraya sits on 4 hectares of land with more than 200m of white-sand beachfront.
The house reef that runs the length of the property is healthy and vibrant, with a variety of corals, fish and other species easily spotted either snorkelling or just from the jetty.
HOUSE REEF SNORKELLING
We provide snorkelling equipment at no extra charge for all guests as part of their stay. Entering at the end of the jetty is best, where the drop-off offers a chance to see larger species, sometimes turtles, rays and reef sharks. The shallow areas are abundant with tropical fish and critters. The mangroves act as a nursery to a number of species including black tip reef sharks. Should you wish for one of our guide to join you for a tour of the house reef and an introduction to our local underwater residents, please check with the activity centre. For the aficionados, we also offer guided night snorkelling on the house reef.
We also provide kayak and SUP boards included in your stay. Guests are welcome to take the kayaks on expeditions to neighbouring islands, Seraya Besar, Hatamin and Anita or circumnavigate Seraya Kecil. The neighbouring islands take approximately 20-40minutes while paddling around the island will take about 1 hour and a half.
Picnics on one of our neighbouring islands can be organised for guests where they can enjoy lunch in an exclusive patch of paradise. Guests are also invited to dine privately on our jetty under the stars, listening to the water lapping below.
Bajo Yoga is a yoga studio operating in Labuan Bajo that offer private classes for those guests seeking to practice yoga in our tranquil and relaxing environment. Classes available upon request.
Massage therapists from Wae Molas Spa in Labuan Bajo may be requested to provide guests with traditional or relaxation massages. Opt for your massage on the jetty to take in the lapping sounds of the reef below, pure paradise.
We are now taking bookings for all things diving direct from The Seraya. Seraya Divers will take certified divers out to explore the world famous Komodo National Park dive sites, keep you close to home diving on our house reef by day and by night as well as further your skills in all recreational levels of PADI scuba courses.
