The Venture Hotel is on the road behind Lita’s supermarket on Rua Filomena De Camara (there are no street signs in Dili) in the area of town known as Bidau Lecidere.

It’s in a quiet location one street off the beach road underneath some big trees providing cool shade and a nice atmosphere.The bar is roomy and comfortable and the restaraunt serves good food.

Nene, the manager, throws a killer all you can eat bbq every Thurs nite. It is the best value in Dili.

  4. Hi, I just came across your website and noticed your request for an updated comment. I stayed at the Venture last August(2009) prior to and after the Tour de Timor mountain bike race,and the Independence Day celebrations. I was in the country looking for alternative places to paraglide for the Oz winter. The Venture hasn’t changed any judging by your photos. All up I stayed there for two weeks. Even senior UN police stayed there.Clean,safe and with a pleasant ambiance is how i would describe the hotel. The first time that i visited East Timor was in late 1970,It had a great deal more ambiance then when the esplanade had massive banyan trees on both sides of the road with interlocking branches. I would like to remind visitors that this is a country under reconstruction and that patience is often required when dealing with a damaged community. This is not Bali. The Timorese people need a lot of help, they are a warm, friendly and undemanding people. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other enquiries. Regards Tony. PS the town center is a 15 minute walk to the west from the hotel.

  5. I have stayed at the Venture last yesr.
    Would you have a room available? Preferably one double room?
    Planning to stay in Timor for 1-3 months for work.

    Arriving Timor between the 5-9th of April.

    Please provide costs.

    Enjoyed my previous stay there.

  7. Hi there Jenny Pa to Kirsty Sword Gusmao has booked me from 19th July. I am facilitating a learn to swim program for the children of East Timor and I am totally on a budget, contrary to the article press statement!!!

    Would you be able to offer me a reduced rate? I would very much appreciate it. And I am happy to teach your staff or relatives swimming if you like.

    Best Regards

  8. Yes I thought this was the direct contact. Would you have their direct email??

  9. Hi Guys,

    I stayed here in February 2010. And whilst the place was pleasant enough, I had $US200 and $AUS150 stolen from room. I know, my own fault for leaving it there! But, the worst thing was that I only discovered it 1 hour before I left the hotel and East Timor. I reported it to staff at the front desk but they professed to not understand me and I was unable to file a Police Report or really take the matter any further. I called the manager numerous time and have emailed many times, but no one has ever got back to me. Stay here at your own risk! And never, ever be dumb like me and leave money or valuables in your room!
