Stayed here before and after a liveaboard trip, was able to leave luggage at hotel until our return. location is out of town but the setting is stunning with amazing sunset views over the Komodo Islands. Rooms are a good size and very clean, a good hot shower. Breakfast was good. Great pool area and staff are very helpful.

The best thing this hotel has going for it is its location. On the hilltop, away from the rather touristy town of LBJ, with stunning views of the ocean. We stayed after a week of traveling and welcomed the clean rooms, decent water pressure in bathrooms and quiet, restful ambiance of the hotel - including the pool - which was... More

Excellent place to relax at the start or end of a trip to Flores. Location is about a 15min walk to town, but the tradeoff is it's quiet and you have more space. Decent breakfast but recommend heading into town for dinner.

On our trip to Komodo Island out travel agent booked a hotel nearby the harbor. With a beautiful view from the mountain we enjoyed our stay. It is a perfect hotel to stay a few nights and use as break-out to dive, snorkel or visit Komodo park. The rooms are simple but clean like the bathroom. You do not really... More
