“A lonely paradise?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

I found it hard to communicate with staff, though I speak indonesian, so that was bizarre. The staff were lovely and ready to help, the sort of service not found in Australia! The rooms made it an easy stay. The food was average, unfortunately, and overall our stay seemed over priced.
However, the pool and beach area was amazing, watching the sunset by the pool was truly magnificent.

More or less 1 month ago i came to this hotel with my girlfriend.
The price is good, so we decided to stop here 1 night,
I like the room, clean and confortable, good breakfast and the swimming pool is perfect to take a rest and relax.
The only thing is the karaoke the next door, make too much noisy in the night.

I can see how this would be a lovely resort, but when my friend and I stayed here we just felt that it was... eerie. We were taken here by a driver after we accidentally ended up in labuan bajo (long story) and just really needed accommodation. To be honest, Luwansa was well above our budget but we just needed a relaxing night. It was a fair way out of town, the food (especially the breakfast) was average and they was only really one vegetarian option. However, the rooms were lovely, the pool is great (although needs some shade) and the view is amazing. The staff are also just wonderful! The lack of guests, price and distance from town did put me off but I can see that it has potential!

We stayed one night in luwansa beach resort, our tour guide from losflorestour.com put us on this hotel for last day of tour and we never expected the good hotel in labuan bajo, It was surprised that this hotel has beautiful resort with nice swimming pool, bigger room and very clean. I also amazed with friendly staff during our stays. i really recommended for those who is willing to go to or return from Rinca/komod island and must transit one night in labuan bajo

Me and my wife were only on Flores Island for 1 night and we stayed at Luwansa Beach Resort. We hadn't pre-booked. We simply landed at the airport, and caught a 'taxi' straight to it (it was advertised in the airport), which took about 5/10 mins.
The location of the hotel is almost untouched. It had only opened a few months before, and there are signs of this (grass hasn't yet grown in the intended parts, the grounds are not well lit etc), but you can tell that given a bit of time...the hotel has the potential to be amazing. The room was clean and spacious, and the staff were friendly. The meal we ate there was average, and the fact it was so quiet there (people wise) made it seem a bit eerie on the night, but like I said...it hadn't long opened and Labuan Bajo is still only a tourist attraction in development. In 20 years I'd imagine the place to be full of luxury hotels and bars etc.
All in all we had a comfortable stay and I'd recommend it for short term stop-overs. It's located close to Labuan Bajo harbour, making it ideal for linking Rinca and Komodo Island trips.

This place has some potential in terms of its bungalows but unfortunately they have a loud Karaoke joint next door and to top it off a management that feels that ripping off its guests on the transport to and from town (Rp. 100,000 per round trip or 15-20% of the daily room rates) is a reasonable way to make money....Breakfast sucks. There are much better places on the same stretch of beach.

Just opened a few weeks ago. Felt like a 'soft' opening. Several things good and a few things missed the mark - but could be sorting out the joys of a new business. Room quality was overall very good. Bed, decor - excellent. Bathroom - top quality, super shower, bright with large windows to the ceiling; downside - no window coverings. So no relief from the hot sun and 'full monty' for all those who cared to look up from the pool. Pool was great, bar area was also very good. Needed some umbrellas out by the pool. Landscaping still being done, but should look excellent in a few weeks/months. Beach area - not great, but being worked on. Lunch was good (stick to local offerings, not the western fare). American Breakfast was not good. Again, stick with the indonesian version. Service at Luwansa was outstanding. Attentive and responsive staff; huge smiles; address you by name; willing to help you enjoy your stay in Bajo. In fact, the GM gave us a lift into town one night. Very kind and gracious host. In our opinion, a 3 for now, but only has to make a few adjustments to get to 4++.
