Not included prices on your package can be

  • Tara Bandu (marine protected area) fees. This charge is US $2 per snorkel/dive session done in protected area, and is collected by us at the end of your stay in order to be paid to the island community, based on how many Tara Bandu sites are visited.

  • Atauro Tourism Association (ATKOMA): Optional contribution US $2 cash per person.

  • Bar tab: there is a selection of drinks available for purchase at the lodge, outside of the complimentary free flow of water, coffee and tea that we will colect after your last dinner of your last night at the lodge.

  • Gratuities are welcome and greatly appreciated by our team. In case you want to, can hand it directly to one of our staff, or to the manager to be distributed later.
