Where to stay in Moroni - our suggestions

For a firm booking we require a 50% deposit to be made by bank transfer at the time of booking. The balance can be settled by bank transfer, latest 2 weeks before your arrival, and otherwise you can pay this locally but only in cash or with a VISA card.

When we are booking and purchasing your tickets for your local flights, the total amount for the tickets must be paid in advance. Most of our guests prefer to pay the total expected cost in advance, including excursions and extras, in order not to have to travel with cash.

At the lodge we accept cash payments either in Euros or Comorian Francs (KMF). There is no reliable ATM in Mohéli. It is possible to pay the balance at the lodge with your VISA card (no other card types work) + 3.5% processing fee. You can change euros in the hotel or in small shops in Moheli for EUR1=KMF490. The rate of the Comorian Franc is fixed to the euro.

Advance payment for accommodation and activities at Laka Lodge will be reimbursed by us, minus bank transfer charges, in cases of “force majeure” (cancellation of flight, serious illness, etc.). Unfortunately, domestic flight tickets are theoretically not reimbursable nor modifiable. We will also try our best to help you with the local airlines.

The transport on the island is limited. Public transport is not regular. Only a handful of taxis are available on the island. Moheli Laka Lodge will arrange your airport transfers and tours of the island.

Free internet connection, only for clients, in the restaurant area.

The Comoros islands experience two seasons that do not differ too much from each other, a warmer and rainier season from November to May and a fresher and drier one from June to October.

All year-round temperatures vary between 25°C and 32°C. During the rainy season rains may appear but generally do not last more than an hour. February is generally rainier.

At the lodge we accept payments with a valid VISA card (+3.5% processing fee) or cash euro. Payments in US Dollars are possible too however the exchange rate can differ from daily bank rates. We cannot accept payments in other currencies.

Summer clothes are recommended all year round. Outside of the hotel area it is advised to wear adapted clothing in accordance to local customs. For men and well as women it would be expected to wear pants or a longer skirt and cover shoulders. Short sleeves are accepted.

Mohéli is home to a colourful, vibrant, and conservative traditional culture. In order to show respect to our local hosts, and to earn their respect in return, when travelling in the Comoros please avoid public displays of affection and dress in conservative manner.

Laka Lodge is home to one of the only private beaches in the Comoros, therefore on our private beach and in the boat for marine excursions, wearing bikinis and western-style swimwear is possible. When walking in the village or on the public beach, please wear at least a shirt with sleeves and trousers, a skirt, or a wrap. Local women usually wear a shawl or scarf to cover their head or wrap around their shoulders.

Demonstrating respect for their traditions is a fun component of your ecotourism experience and will earn you a deeper level of trust and connection during your interactions with the wonderful Comorian people.

It is advised to take malaria prevention medication. Use DEET based repellent from sunset when you are outside and wear long sleeves and cotton pants or skirts. Moheli however has a very low rate of prevalence of Malaria. Use a strong sun screen during the day, factor 30 or 50 is advisable.
