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,

They sit there day after day on palm mats in the shade each doing a different part of the process.Great to witness and the ladies were lovely and friendly of course. The fishing village (all Muslim) I visited was a sight for sore eyes! The ...
... and waited for someone to get me. Once again, it was the kindness of a stranger that helped me get through a tough situation. It was good timing because I was getting tired of paying tourist prices for food and tickets. I was on a bus in Jogjakarta where I and a fellow tourist named Bryce, were asked to pay 20,000 rupiah instead of 4,000 rupiah which is what the locals were paying. I eventually paid but Bryce refused and was booted off the bus. The kindness ...
... wind was strong. Visibility wasn’t great and so we were dropped off at the wrong spot. After a 20 minute swim across a sandy bottom, the only things we’d seen were a sea cucumber and a plastic bag. Our divemaster told us to ascend, get back on the boat and we dropped in again at a closer spot.
But, just before we were about to do our back roll entries off of the boat and into the ocean, I felt my tank slip.
The air tank ...
... some coral. My favourite thing was all of the variety of coral there. There are so many colours. It is amazing at how well the fish and things can blend in to the coral. The amount of times that camouflage is used as a defense mechanism is unreal. You have to look so closely to see what part is coral and what section is a fish. Somehow, even bright yellow fish can effectively hide in purple coral. It is just the most amazing world underwater!
