Most of the staff does not speak enough english, which causes lots of mistakes. I felt sorry for Mr Freddy, he has to solve many problems because of that, he is doing an excellent job! I would recommend to take a better chef for the restaurant, and new cushions for the swimmingpool/beach beds, it would give the hotel extra shine. The location!, it is a beautiful quiet spot! We loved Mr Freddy, he tried to do as much as possible to make our stay as perfect. The spa area is nice, spacious, clean and quiet rooms.

We went to Labuan Bajo to see the Komodo dragons and made Plataran our base for a few days. This small resort sits on a beautiful, quiet beach and has a lovely, laid-back feel. Our two-storey 'villa' was well appointed and perfect for two adults and two kids. Although service can be a bit haphazard at times, the staff are very genuine, friendly and helpful. The resort has its own 'phinisi' sailboat which is the perfect way to go and see the dragons. Yoga in the morning and snorkelling off the jetty kept us busy at other time. However, it must be said that there is not much else to see outside the resort. Labuan Bajo is not a pretty town, so better be prepared to 'stay in' for a few days
Room beside the reception, noise of air conditioning either reception and kitchen. communication should be done in advance. Snorkling quality close to the hotel because transparency and green color. Great staff very helpful and skillful, Excellent food either dinner or breakfast Great room design, really you feel in a paradise in Asia Quiet place during the day, you can take your stress out.
Airport transfer was not included, while the other less expensive hotel/resort provide it as free facilities The villas are beautiful Indonesian traditional Joglo house. It has spacious room and especially in garden villa, the bathroom is huge. The staffs is super friendly. The facilities for water sport like canoe, paddle board or snorkling is OK. Breakfast is not a buffet but an ala carte all you can order...hehehe :) We stayed here between our trip to Komodo Island (one night before the trip in beachfront villa and one night after at garden villa). Thanks for the free 60 min massage, we love it!

We spent 4 magical nights here. The staff were amazing, everyone was so helpful, the food was great (mostly local) and the room was divine. The place is remote but the location is incredible! For my boys this was a trip of a lifetime, we saw Komodo dragons, incredible snorkelling, hiked up Padar for amazing views & swam with manta rays. Another highlight was the day trip organised by the resort which included a picnic in a treehouse on a private beach (yes, just us!) and Rangko Cave.

Packing list for the trip
How much are Komodo National Park fees?
Komodo National Park fees are complicated. They depend on: the islands visited (which is weather dependent), whether it's a weekday or a weekend, whether the guest is a foreigner or a local, and the number of people on the boat (as ranger fees are shared). This is why no two people will tell you the same number when asked about fees! The fees are also complicated by the fact that they're set by the national government and paid directly to Jakarta. So there is little visibility on changes from time to time. This is why we usually advise international guests to bring cash of between IDR 350K to IDR 460K per person per day for weekdays and between IDR 400K to IDR 520K per person per day for weekends. This is more than you need, but it avoids you ending up short of cash if the boat doesn't have too many people or the fees suddenly change!
Will I get the exact same boat in the pictures?
You'll get the same type and quality boat, but you may not get the exact same boat. There are 4 types of boat - Standard (i.e. basic), Speedboat, Deluxe and Luxury. Most of the boat operators in Komodo have a few boats that they rotate. Depending on the group size on the day, the boat operator may end up using a larger or smaller boat. The boat that they use will be of the same type and quality but may not be exactly the same boat. Also, there may be situations where the exact boat needs to be sent for servicing so the boat operator may use another boat in these cases as well.
Is the itinerary guaranteed?
The itinerary for Komodo National Park is very weather dependent, as the journey takes place out in open waters. Some days the currents are very strong, and it might not be safe to go to certain islands. We know this can be frustrating if you had your heart set on specific spots, but please be assured that the boat operators will do their very best to make sure you see the dragons and the highlights of the park - even if it's not identical to the itinerary here. A visit to Komodo is quite the adventure, so please do be prepared to embrace some level of uncertainty!
