This is a lovely well maintained hotel in Labuan Bajo. It's not centrally located but up on the hilltop with sweeping bay views. It has a medium sized pool set upon a terrace. The breakfast is very nice. We ate there on one of the evenings and it was also good. They offer trips but I am not sure if they are good value as we did not shop around (we paid 900,000Rps for two people for a boat for the day to take us to Rinca and then snorkelling in the afternoon). We preferred the double room to the twin room as it felt larger and cooler. Nice terraces with views. Wifi in the restaurant / pool area. The staff are very nice and the owner is extremely informative. Would definitely stay here again,

The people were so friendly and wanted me to take photos with their children as I passed through. The village ...

(not true, during the last few weeks before travelling I got a flu/strep throat/bronchitis and managed to lose a few pounds over the holiday. Now my shorts don’t fit and I need a belt). Whatever the case, there were a lot of distractions to prevent me from enjoying the ...
... using the internet in the dive shop. This time we timed the walk to the airport and made it there just before the rain started. The airport is literally a shed. It had no running water in the bathrooms. It was funny though that we were handed umbrellas to use as we walked to the plane. Then it was off to the next adventures back on Bali. As Lach has fallen fast asleep at 9:30pm, he doesn't get to add his comments to this note!
... and a young couple from Switzerland joined me. I tried very hard to make conversation with them as there were only the three of us on this tiny boat but they were not having any of it, miseries! It didn't matter as I was determined to enjoy myself and have fun, so quickly made friends with the crew - sign language and laughs go a long way! 2 hours later we had arrived at Rinca Island and we were met by a 12 year old Guide, well, he looked around that age! ...
