Having travelled widely, this is one of the loveliest places I have ever stayed. The "hotel" is a series of bungalows, made of local materials, which disappear sensitively set into a steep slope adjacent to the most beautiful bay. We stayed in adjoining bungalows, ideal for a family, with a superb terrace between the two. The views from the rooms were sublime, and can be well seen on the hotel's website, www.waecicu.com. The casual restaurant is beachside with a great ambience and wonderful views.
The hotel is run by french expat Phil and his lovely Indonesian wife, Dewi, who cooks beautifully. Phil will arrange trips on their large boat to Rinca and/or Komodo island, where the famous dragons can be seen, and local fishing villages and lovely deserted islands with exquisite beaches and coral, can be visited during the trip.
This is remote Indonesia, so don't expect room service. There is no hot water, it's a decent walk up the hill (thru beautiful gardens) to the bungalows, and while the food is great, it takes a long time to arrive - Phil and Dewi deliberately offer experience to locals training at a nearby hospitality and tourism school, so be patient and understanding, while you await your meal in paradise.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in the western part of Flores Island, on a peninsula, just 15 minutes from Labuan Bajo, the gateway to the Komodo National Park. The hotel is in the middle of a wild and beautiful bay, offering a fantastic view of magnificent sunsets. The bungalows are on a hill, built with natural materials such as wood, banboo and coconut (eco construction). They are designed with Manggarai or Indonesian architecture, and all have thatched roofs keeping them cooler. The charming restaurant offers excellent international cuisine and the friendly service at our family-run hotel will make you feel at home. ... more less
