Flores – Where to Stay?
There are plenty of places to stay in Flores. With escalating tourism in Labuan Bajo, travellers can now find myriad options for places to stay. If you’re looking for 5-star establishments, take your pick from the luxurious options like the Plataran Komodo Beach Resort and the Jayakarta Suites Komodo Flores. Ayana Komodo Resort is set to open its doors this year too, on Waecicu Beach. There are private luxury villas with all the amenities you could want including world-class luxurious rooms with amazing beds, spacious and well-appointed bathrooms, restaurants, swimming pools, spa, garden space, diving amenities.
Depending on your budget, there is something for everyone. A quick search on the internet renders many new and modern options to suit your holiday budget including something a little bit simpler and easier on the wallet like the comfortable and cosy guesthouses, homestays and losmen – a locally run and managed small hotel or inn. Most budget establishments now come with free wifi, air-conditioning, hot and/or cold water, sitting toilets as well as flat-screen TVs.
In other parts of Flores outside of Labuan Bajo, there are local hotels, guesthouses, hostels and losmens which you can pre-book online or telephone ahead to secure your accommodation. In the more remote parts of Flores, for example, East Flores, rooms are available in the local hostels, hotels and guesthouses. As tourism is yet to escalate to its peak in the more out-of-reach areas, establishments are rarely at full capacity and would most likely not turn away paying guests.
