As a tight budgeted traveling couple, we normally would not choose air conditioned accommodation, but after a fantastic trip diving in Komodo, we decided to treat ourselves to a little bit of 'luxury'. We dropped in to Bayview gardens a couple of days before our trip, and were warmly welcomed and shown around by very enthusiastic staff. We were allowed to drop off our bags while we sailed around Komodo, and arrived back at Bayview to a wonderful greeting.
The room we chose (1) was the closest up the steps (we were tired!) and was beautifully set out with a private balcony area overlooking the bay (perfect sunset spot), drinking water and hot drinks available all day, and rooms cleaned thoroughly every day.
It's so nice to be greeted by name by staff in a small concern such as this from the first moment you set foot through the door - and we were particularly pleased with the very personal service - guests leave notes on a board by the reception area, and the staff respond to these - for example - breakfast delivery time and special needs (breakfast, of course, is brought to the balcony every morning with a cheerful smile, and so can then be enjoyed in perfect solitude).
All in all, good value for money, and sure to be on our list of pampering stops on our next trip in Flores. Keep up the good work guys!!
