The people of the Atauro Island community in East Timor invite you to come and visit their island . . . . a magical place that is still ?like other places used to be? . . . and to be part of their project to keep it that way
Timor-Leste, formerly known as East Timor, became the world’s newest, independent, democratic nation, in May 2002. Situated North West of Darwin, between Australia and Indonesia, East Timor is already beginning to draw small numbers of travelers to the island. With its beautiful, unspoiled beaches, world class scuba diving, spectacular landscapes and rich history, it is easy to see why.
Welcome to Hotel Dili..!! Hotel Dili is the longest established hotel in Timor-Leste. Operating continuously since 1933, the Hotel has seen the shifts in Timor-Leste's history from Portuguese times to Japanese occupation in World War Two, Indonesian administration from 1975 and finally Independence in 2002.
One of the premiere boutique hotels in the new Timor Leste. With panoramic views across the expansive Dili bay area from the upstairs restaurant and its smart modern interiors this small hotel offers you the best accomodation in the city of Dili.
We love East Timor and we know you will too. Just a 1 hour flight from Darwin, East Timor is a world away. We know you will be exhilarated, amazed, amused and at times deeply touched, no matter what style of tour you choose. All our tours are adventures and take you to remote areas of untouched natural beauty. Travel in a 4wd on our Community & Cultural Tours or or ride a Motorcycle on our Adventure tours. We also design Customised Tours groups and special Interests.
