How to get to
Rote Island


A world away from the

hustle and bustle.



Where is Rote Island Huts?

Rote Island is 500km North West of the Australian coast and is the closest Indonesian Island to Australia. It sits south west of the main Island of Timor.

Rote Island Huts is uniquely positioned in the most beautiful area of the Island, with the famous white sandy coastline of Nemberala beach and its crystal clear water and spectacular reef right on your doorstep. This location ensures peaceful bliss away from the hustle and bustle. Although hot and tropical (24-30° C/75-88° F), Rote Island is much dryer than the Indonesian Islands to the north which means fewer mosquitos and the ability to enjoy the area without being drenched in perspiration.
