Le Pirate

Bar in Labuan Bajo

This colourful 1st-floor bar is a popular space for a drink after a day on the water. There's live music (8pm to 10pm Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) and film nights (Monday and Wednesday). There's also a decent restaurant (7am to 11pm; mains 60,000Rp to 110,000Rp), rooftop bar and stylish but poky accommodation (private bunk from 500,000Rp, double from 650,000Rp).

Le Pirate also runs the Boatel, a floating hotel just off Waecicu Bay (rooms 700,000Rp) and has 10 open-air beach huts on Le Pirate Island, a private island an hour north of Bajo by boat, with more huts planned. All-inclusive doubles are 1,400,000Rp per night, or visit for the day (650,000Rp per person including lunch, snorkelling and beach activities).
