From the booklet the owner, Adrian made, I know that he puts all his passion in running this hotel. He designed the hotel for the comfort of the guest.The room was cool in the midday although we didn't turn on the air con (the exhaust system). The view from our room was amazing (thanks for the big window). The electric system is designed economically, backed up by some gen sets to cope with the problem of power state provider. He preserves all the rain water in a big reservoir tank to be recycled for fresh water stock (Labuan Bajo still has some problems in providing the fresh water for the people)
He and his wife, Intan planted all the trees so the hotel looks nice and green. Using the natural fertilizer to grow the trees and plants up.He even raises up a pig to be fed by our left over food. He raises up also some chicken for fresh meat stocks.He collects all the plastic garbage to be recycled.
He is generous by providing a gallon of drinking water and assorted sachets to drink (tea, coffee, milk etc)
What he will be doing is to construct a bio digester may be in the future.
Adrian is a knowledgeable person about dive operators or the areas (islands) surrounding.He shared anything I asked him. And he made a right decision to put all his money invested in the land and built the hotel.
I think all the hotels should be managed like this one. My wife and I enjoyed staying 2 nights there before continuing in a cruise ship to Lombok.
Thanks Adrian and Intan.
