Our group of 7 friends had three nights at Bajo Komodo lodge - this was the second eco- lodge we had stayed at during our 2 weeks in Flores (we had also overnighted at the peaceful Uduyana eco-lodge, Denpasar en route to Flores.) Merryl and Alan Wilson are to be congratulated on their environmentally responsible vision for local and fair... More

This is a lovely, quiet place to stay in Labuan Bajo. The room was great, clean, spacious, with a great bathroom and many amenities. Filtered water is provided without disposable plastic bottles - a plus. The pool is very nice and serene. There is a drying rack for clothing, which was much appreciated due to wet snorkel gear. Staff was... More

I loved this hotel. It was so quiet and peaceful from the moment we turned onto the drive. A real contrast to the other glitzy hotels along this road. The lounge area was a really relaxing place to be and we enjoyed using the chess set and looking at the photo albums of the hotel. It was a pleasure to... More

Our 3 night stay here was wonderful - ecolodgesindonesia is a conservation company using only local people empowering them to value their heritage. They also aim to assist species which are critically endangered and by booking here we help in a small way to achieve this vital goal. Service was exceptional from all levels of staff. The room was large,... More

Only stayed one night but I can highly recommend the hotel and the area. I really wish I would have stayed longer. The hotel is simple but the rooms are nice and the staff is very helpful. The area is beautiful and of course the jumping off point to get to Komodo and Rinca Islands.

An excellent place to stay if you want away from the hustle and bustle of traffic whilst only being a 3 minutes taxi from town. Breakfast is good (eggs or noodles), the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean with excellent mosquito nets, the pool are is fantastic.

Cant understand why this little gem wasnt full. Its right by the beach with super views out to the islands and amazing sunsets either from the first floor verandah dining area and lounge or from an evening stroll along the sand. The rooms are clean and spacious and the staff very friendly.

The place has a beautiful garden, large rooms and some remarkable furnitures. The problem is the maintenance, as everything is getting old. So you get a very good place, but it could be great if they would just decide to invest something in small renovations (really needed, for example in the bathroom, or the bedsheets). In short: - good breakfast,... More
