Waecicu Eden Beach Hotel

A great hideaway

What we say: 4 stars

Reached by a 10-minute boat ride from Labuan Bajo, French/Indonesian run Waecicu Eden Beach sits out on the promontory to the north of Labuan Bajo, which protects the inner islands from the Flores Sea. Waecicu sits on a narrow strip of beachfront with rooms running up the hillside behind. On offer is a good mix of fan and "prepped-for-air-con" rooms, with just about all of them taking in terrific sea views. We'd definitely angle for a fan-cooled room as the air-con ones have windows that cannot be opened and at least when we stayed the air-con wasn't yet working. Once the fans were off when the power was switched off at night it got hot -- extremely hot. There's a ground floor restaurant and the food swings between outstanding and mediocre. Our first dinner of barbecued fish was fabulous but when we ordered it again the next night, not so much. The salads were consistent and excellent; one of the owners learned to cook in France, and it shows. Order your three meals for the day at breakfast, as time from ordering to eating can be excessive -- try two hours. The hosts are very obliging, friendly and knowledgable about the surrounds. The beach has a few hammocks slung up where you can easily while away an afternoon and watch one of the stunning sunsets. Grab a canoe and paddle across the bay for a snorkel (though it doesn't compare to the islands), and trips further afield can be arranged. If you have a few slow days in Flores and don't want to go to an island, we'd definitely recommend a stay here -- just order your meals well in advance!
