A Courtyard by Marriott will open in Labuan Bajo, gateway to Komodo National Park which is home to the Komodo dragons, come 2021.
With a hilltop location on the western tip of Flores Island, the Courtyard by Marriott Labuan Bajo Komodo Resort will offer 158 rooms and suites.
The property is located less than 10 minutes away from Komodo Airport and the Kantor UPP Kelas III Labuan Bajo Port. The Komodo National Park and Manta Point are both within an hour away by speedboat, said the chain.
Additionally, it said the construction of a new marina port, set to be the main arrival and docking spot for yachts and traditional Indonesian phinisi sailboats, is underway and the resort will become an integral part of this new development.
Lana Jong, chairwoman of Terra Komodo Bakti, said: “Labuan Bajo is home to diverse marine life and is listed as one of the 10 destinations in the Indonesian government’s tourism development plan. This is a very opportune time to team up with Marriott International in opening the Courtyard by Marriott Labuan Bajo Komodo Resort.”
The resort will feature two swimming pools. Other facilities include a kids’ club, fitness centre and meeting spaces. F&B concepts will include the all-day dining restaurant, Momo Café, the poolside The Courtyard Lounge and Fish Bar, and The Market for light bites to-go.
