One of the more luxurious options in Labuan Bajo, the four-star Bintang Flores offers a bit more character in both rooms and public areas than Laprima, as well as a very nice chill-out pool and beach area.
Rooms offer all the modern conveniences (TV, mini-fridge and air-con) with understated local design touches, and most have great views of the Bajo Bay and the green and manicured grounds of the hotel. There's a coffee shop and restaurant abutting a koi pond, a sixth-floor lounge, and a small but pleasant enough, trash-cleared private beach -- although the winding swimming pool, popular with locals, seemed rather more appealing for a quick dip and a cold beverage. There's also a fitness centre and a resident dive shop, as well as WiFi. It's a way from town, although you can use a shuttle service (50,000 rupiah) to reach downtown Labuan Bajo -- or a much cheaper bemo or ojek if you're feeling adventurous. Rates vary depending on the season, and it's worth shopping around online to see if you can grab a lower price. The "internet rate" advertised on the website is considerably lower than the "published" rate and presents a rather good deal at this time, outside of the July and August high season.
