Ayana will launch Komodo’s first five-star resort on Labuan Bajo’s Waecicu Beach, along with a nine-bedroom phinisi ship sailing from the property.
In operation by next summer, Ayana Komodo Resort, Waecicu Beach features 12 suites and 189 guest rooms, an 11th floor check-in and a rooftop wedding and function venue with an ocean view terrace accommodating about 200 guests.
F&B includes an all-day dining serving Asian cuisine and International food, a seafood barbecue restaurant, a Japanese restaurant, a rooftop bar, the Pier Bar and Lobby Bar.
The resort also offers a private beach, two main swimming pools and a children’s pool, a spa, a gym and kid’s club.
A 54m-long and 11m-wide, nine-bedroom phinisi ship will sail from the private pier to around the island on two- to three-night explorations.
Labuan Bajo is located just an hour’s flight from Bali in West Flores and overlooks the Komodo National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991.
