WHY LUALEMBA BUNGALOWS

Location that is convienent to everything you want to do in Rote but just a enough distance to chillout in peaceful surroundings.Nemberala is the most appropriate place to stay if surfing or fishing on the island of Rote. Between April and November Besialu reef (alias T-land) is the most prominent surf break on Rote that favors the south east trade winds. Surfable from 2ft face to 25 ft face favorable to all kinds of paddling surf craft. Even though there are other surf breaks around Rote there not favorable to the seasonal south east trade winds. For fishing Nemberala has the best haven for mooring boats during south east trade winds, however June, July and August these trade winds can become extremely strong for fishing distances out to sea,

WHERE IS:

Nemberala is the location of Besialu reef (alias T-land) on Rote Island. The most southern island in Indonesia 149 km from Australian territorial waters, Located 180 km for south west of Kupang the capital of West Timor in eastern Indonesia.

Nemberala is around a 1hr drive from Ba’a, the capital of Rote.

Besialu reef (alias T-land) is 1km from Nemberala beach. Best access by boat can walk at low tide but can be difficult due to sea weed farming (40 minutes). Lualemba offers free boat trips to Besialu reef to guests only all day for free.

Garuda are also known to have a 4.00pm flight from Kupang to Bali so you don't need to stay a night in Kupang on the way back from Rote if you go to Kupang by fast ferry arrives 1.30pm, Wings Air doesn't connect with this flight as it departs Rote 4.00 pm. However sometimes the behari fast ferry doesn't run due to windy rough conditions and Wings air tickets can sell out quickly in advance. it is advisable to leave a day early if you have connecting flights with an overnight stay in Kupang.
