Welcome to Labuan Bajo


Everything you need is located on one-way Jl Soekarno Hatta, which is crammed with Western restaurants, local rumah makans and plenty of accommodation, travel agents and dive shops. The waterfront bustles with daily life and those who wish to glimpse it, while connections to other parts of Indonesia are effortless.

A sparkly new marina and five-star AYANA resort opened in 2018 and with more luxury accommodation confirmed by 2021, Labuan Bajo, the capital of Manggarai Barat regency, is officially no longer a low-key fishing town. As one local said when referring to a popular bar, "It's getting busy in Paradise."
