If there is one way place in Flores you want to splurge, I definitely recommend heading off to Bidadari and stay at Angel Island Resort -a private island 1 hour off of LaBuanBajo. Greeted at the airport by Fati, a super sweet local lady, we were brought to the LBJ harbor to catch the boat to Angel resort.
Upon arriving, we realized we were in paradise. A private island with very few people; May is low season, the water is warm, the sun shining and most guests were on a dive all day; truly private.
The reef off the island is spectacular. Within the first 5mins I saw a squid, heaps of blue star fish, a giant clam and an abundant amount of fish-big and small with beautiful coral.
The rooms are modern Balinese flare straight out of a magazine. Sparkling clean with modern amenities, large and EXTREMELY comfy bed. The outdoor bathroom is stunning. Although no cable, a large flatscreen was provided with a drive and a usb stick filled with movies or to add your own from a laptop. Wifi in the room was a plus as well. Fantastic coffee machine for espressos and the showering amenities were top notch, my hair and body felt incredible.
The all inclusive meals were large portions and pretty decent for a resort. The staff are great! Martin, Andri and Aris are on it the second you breathe in their direction. Their professionalism, promptness and smiles made this a most memorable stay.
Lisa, one of the divemasters, made a point to coming to our room with gear to try on and was honest about what the diving days would be like – Thank you!
The one small complaint would be for better signage to the rooms, a little confusing day or night.
All-in-all I would highly recommend Angel to anyone who’s missing a piece of heaven from their lives.
