Get to T-Land Resort Rote

The travel adventure:

For international flights, you will need to travel to Ngurah Rai international Airport in Bali (Denpasar) or Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta. There are regular and direct flights from Bali and Jakarta to Kupang.

Two airlines are the ones which we recommend when flying into Kupang airport: Garuda Indonesia and Lion Air.

In 2016, the company Wings Air (Lion Air operating between islands) has scheduled a daily flight between Kupang and Rote Island so there are two options for arriving in T-Land Resort:

By Sea: Our guide will pick you up at the El Tari airport in Kupang to leave you atthe hotel to have arest.

The following morning we will go to the port of Kupang to take the fast Ferry (VIP class) departing at 8:30 am. The journey by sea takes about one hour and thirty minutes.

By Air: To avoid spending the night in Kupang, both Garuda Indonesia and Lion Air morning flights would connect with the only daily flight from Kupang to Rote at 15:05 lasting 30 minutes.

For both options, once at the port or airport in Rote you will be picked up by T-land Resort staff, who will take you directly to our complex, where you will be greeted by the management team to welcome you. And from here on, out to surf!

On the return journey, due to the Ferry schedules, it is not necessary to spend the night in Kupang.
