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 ...
... away, it was a fair size and was chilling in the shade. It wasn't long before we saw some more under the wardens' kitchen. There were some big ones under there (about 1.5m) and it was quite scary when one of them moved, especially as Dino, our guide, had just told us that three rangers had been bitten the year before and had to get airlifted all the way to Bali for medical treatment. There was a baby dragon climbing a tree next to us. It was quite funny to watch ...
... back towards security, but there was no airport information desk. I stopped and turned around, thinking maybe I could speak to someone from one of the other airlines to find what happened. Looking quite lost and anxious, another backpacker approached me and asked if I was on the SKY flight as well. I said yes and together we wandered through the airport until a staff member found us and lead us back through security to check in, where we reclaimed ...
... I should think. On the way out of the park, we passed one more dragon. We also saw a buffalo which the guide was excited about, and a bunch of monkeys.
I learned a lot about the dragons. They are rather dangerous and can run at 18km/hour. They eat each other and their young. They live for about 50years and start mating at 7 or 8. We saw a nesting site where the mom digs a hole about 1m deep to lay the eggs. She will guard it for a month and then ...
