Ambon and Ora Trip Part 1

Our original plan was to visit Banda Neira. I have got the flight to Ambon booked but in January I found out that Merpati no longer flew to Neira and if I wanted to go to Banda I had to take pelni ship. Timing was not convenient so I went ahead with the back up plan of going to Ora Resort in Seram island.

I have seen Ora Resort pictures in some people’s blog and drooling over it as it looked so like a paradise. I contacted Pak Alvin, the owner thru whatsap and booked the over water bungalow together with the transportation package.

Flight to Ambon reserved 2 months ahead is 2.5 Mio pp/pax. We used Batik air 00.30-06.00 flying to Ambon and fly back on Garuda 14.45-16.15

Ora Resort Pricing in 2014 is below. I heard they have a new pricing for 2015, so best to contact Pak Alvin directly

We arrived in Ambon early in the morning and was picked up by our driver. Too early to check in to Natsepa hotel so our driver suggested we just started going around Ambon.

Driving around Ambon was pleasant, the road condition was good and we could see the sea along the drive.

Places we visited:

Benteng Amsterdam in desa Hilla

We had lunch at RM88 (delicious grilled fish and fresh seafood) before checking in to our hotel.

We’re staying in Natsepa Hotel, a big hotel located in Pantai Natsepa. It is more expensive that Hotels inside the city but I wanted to see the beach and I only had 1 night in Ambon. I liked the hotel…room is big, god view and breakfast has good variety. I just wished we had more time to explore the hotel.

The beach in front of the hotel at low tide in the morning. It actually looks better in the afternoon.

We also went to Liang beach but the wave was pretty big when we came in Liang and it was windy so we didn’t swim. Liang beach has a white sandy beach and turqoise blue water. We lazed around and eating Ambon Rujak there.
