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 spiderweb rices fields are different than other rice fields we've seen since they are not grown in terraces. The Mangarri people of Flores use the values of their religious beliefs to create the design of these fields. Although to outsiders they look like spiderwebs, the people of the village who own these fields see many symbolic reasons for ...
... heavy over the road forming picturesque arches. Palms bulged with coconuts, banana trees circled homes, ferns with fronds as big as a person slunk down riverbanks as vines spilled over trees. A couple of dogs played chicken with lorries, whilst water buffaloes meandered through rice paddy's and cows munched on grass by the side of the road. The serenity of which was topped off by the sound of a lady throwing up in the seat behind us. Poor thing. The road really was just ...
... a bunch of schoolchildren were all admiring the dragons when a huge one came down the hill behind us. I spotted it just before it reached us and would like to credit myself with preventing the consumption of several young kids! Stood there flicking its tongue at us as it smelt, then decided shade was more appealing. We followed trail with guide round to a komodo nest where a mother was outside as sentry (although apparently they eat their own eggs ...
