Accomodation

“Flores has no starred hotels (except Labuan Bajo). There are only guest houses, homestays, standard hotels, and bungalows. So, we categorize bungalows or luxurious hotels as class 1 and lodges or standard hotels are categorized as class 2. Place like Manulalu is 30 minutes drive from main city of Bajawa and located in the middle of the jungle with amazing view surroundings. With those circumstances, do not be shocked if you see or hear some animals or insect from around your room. This is also the same in Moni if you stay overnight at Kelimutu Ecolodge as it is the only hotel far from the hustle bustle of the trans Flores “highway”.
