Not enough can be said about the stellar harbour view we had from our balcony room at Bayview gardens. It was absolutely jaw dropping. The price we had to pay for this view was a couple of switchbacks on the rather long acending walkway to our room, but again, the view made it all was worthwhile. We stayed in Room 7, which I would recommend, as it was actually two rooms - a large, open air, fully private enclosed balcony, as well as an air conditioned bedroom and attached bathroom, which were cleaned daily. The room had a fridge, kettle, and a room safe, and also had a view of the harbour. The breakfast included with the room had to be ordered the day before, and was promptly delivered to your room at the time requested. The hotel restaurant offered the same stellar harbour view, but it only offered meals that had been ore-ordered at least two hours in advance, so the food required could be picked up fresh from the local market. Although this meant a bit of pre planning, we ordered three evening meals during our five day stay, and all three were excellent. The hotel is situated on a hillside directly above the town centre, which means it is quiet, but not isolated, so it is not necessary to rent scooters or hire taxis to get to town: a mere ten minute walk straight down hill gets you to the main street restaurants, dive shops, and all other amenities. But beware it also means a ten minute walk straight uphill when you're coming home.
The hotel is currently undergoing some construction, which was visible below us but not noisy so did not bother us at all, but it did make getting to the new infinity pool a bit of an inconvenience. Again, this was not an issue as we were out diving or busy exploring every day and would not likely have had time to use the pool anyway. The hotel staff were friendly and very accommodating. We plan to return to Labuan Bajo again next year, and will stay at Bayview Gardens again.

We first visited LaBuan Bajo two years ago, when we overnighted here after seeing the Komodo dragons as part of a five day boat trip from Lombok, which in itself was an excellent experience and highly recommended. We left hearing stories of how beautiful this island is, and how amazing it is to swim with the manta rays, and so returning to do so …

We last left off having just arrived in Flores. We flew from Jogjakarta to Denpasar and then onto Labuanbajo in …
After weighing up my options, factoring in both price and time, i decided the best way to to travel from Bali to Flores was via an internal flight. It was a small bi-propellered plane. These cruise at a much lower altitude than the jet engined models. As a result, i was able to see beautiful aerial views of the many islands that make up Nusa Tenggara, to which Flores is the gateway to. This is the only place in the world where Komodo Dragons live in the ...
... rode across Java with 150 million people on a small island. Total chaos. I heard it was incredibly difficult to pee during the rides. There are no public restrooms and people were everywhere all the time. While it is sweet that children and adults come out and wave and say hello all day long, they really want a wave and hello back. They will keep yelling enthusiastically until they get it. It gets hard to stay energized about it day after day ...
... lived in total squalor, their stilt houses above thick layers of rotten rubbish. When the tide was out it was like living literally on a rubbish tip. There were bamboo poles tied together with bits of string to make wooden bridges to get between the houses and children were swimming in among all of this. Even I was shocked, and that takes a lot! The people were so friendly and wanted me to take photos with their children as I passed through. The village ...
