We stayed at Golo Hilltop before a trip to Rinca and Komodo islands and then again before we commenced on a trip across Flores.
The two Dutch owners (Judith and Ingrid) were incredibly helpful in emails prior to our arrival and it’s apparent that they run a very efficient ship! The hotel is absolutely gorgeous (in fact the pictures on their website don’t do it justice I feel). We stayed in one of the rooms at the top which had the most incredible views over the Bay – I swear I would never get bored of that view! The hotel is about 15 minute walk away from the centre of Labuanbajo but I preferred being that little bit out of town for the peace, quiet and amazing views.
There is a lovely pool area and you can tell that the owners have put a lot of care and attention into the decor of the whole hotel. There is a small restaurant which again looks out over the bay. The menu is only small (we tended to eat in an evening just down the road in Paradise) but did have lunch when we arrived there and the food was of a very good standard. The breakfast menu is also small but again very tasty.
We also booked our trip across Flores through Judith and Ingrid and our guide and driver were both excellent.
Overall, Golo Hilltop is a fantastic place to stay in Labuanbajo and I also wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Judith and Ingrid for any requirements for touring Flores.
