Pousada de Maubisse

hatobulico_027Pousada de Maubisse

The Pousada is perched on a lookout just off the main road near the bend in Maubisse.

The weekend rates are around 50 US dollars a night but drop dramatically during the week down to around 16 US a night.

For large groups this would be the best option because the other place, Sara’s isn’t really set up for that.

hatobulico_032If you only need one room Sara’s has a more family atmosphere and the owners are very friendly.

The Pousada has a big common room with a fireplace. I think breakfast is included with the price but it would be best to call ahead to get updated info and to be sure that they have rooms available for the nights you want to stay.

Sorry, I lost the number but if anyone cares to send it to me either via the forum or to dutchpickle @ hotmail. com it would be appreciated.

hatobulico_038This would be a good place to spend the night if you are on the way to Hatobuilico to climb the 2,960 meter Mt. Ramailau (also spelled Ramelau).

There is a pousada in Hatobuilico but there wasn’t anyone there when I went to inquire but it looks like a well kept place.

I stopped in there on Nov 2 which was a big traditional ceremonial day to honor one’s ancestors and visit the gravesites of their parents so they might have been out for that reason.

Don’t forget to bring a jacket because it gets cold up there at night!

  4. Hi,
    I spent a night in Maubisse in August, just after my 63rd birthday. To those of you who were born there my compliments!! It’s a beautiful wonderful place (and it’s not easy to find scenery to impress an Irish visitor). We stayed in The Pousada. Its clser to 70usd a night but we were happy topay. The market in Maubisse was one of our great experiences in Timor Leste (along with grilled fish, chicken and corn on the beach on Friday night Aug 7th in Dili). If you have a chance go visit Timor Leste before all the tourists arrive. And when you’re there visit Maubisse.

  5. Hi, I am a 30 year old graduate teacher really interested in going to Maubisse as my hometown of Bendigo in Victoria has a Bendigo – Maubisse Friendship Community relationship with the town. If anyone knows of contacts in the area for volunteer teaching opportunities(English, geography, tourism, biology etc.)could you let me know.I plan to go in November 2009 for three months.Thanks.

    All of you who have been to Maubisse have one thing in common to say; it’s a wonderful place. I stay with a local family who is selling me land there to build on when I retire in a few years. The coffee is the best in Timor-Leste as are the vegetables grown there at such cheap prices compared to Dili. The Pousada is not listed as having a phone number in the TL Directory or in the 200 page Tourism Directory. My bosses’ grandfather planted the roses at he Pousada which are very old and in need of pruning attention.

    Hoping I have enough life left to do my bit when I get there permanently
